I’m creating the thread prematurely because I wanted to share my experience. I will be posting pictures after I get everything working properly.
I wanted to share with you that I have spent 2 days in the garage trying to figure this out and have done extended research to figure it.
The CABS Auto Blipper will NOT work with an aftermarket dash IF YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL.
If you have an aftermarket dash, you have to tap into the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) that is under the tank and airbox on the right hand side next to the throttle cables. The colors from the CABS wiring harness correlate to the APS wiring minus the yellow wire.
The CABS yellow wire that is suppose to go to the bike’s white wire coming from the gear position sensor needs to go to a constant 12v.
The CABS unit is very very voltage sesitive. I highly recommend running a wire back to the tail light or license plate light and using that for 12v.
I was only getting 12v from the brake switch on the bike harness side when the actual brake switch wire was disconnected. When I would connect the brake switch, I would get 17v and the CABS unit would not work at all.
With the brake switch disconnected and pushing 12v, the CABS unit’s LED would flash when triggered however, it would not move the throttle bodies.
I then connected to the license plate light wire in the rear with a constant 12v, and everything worked.
This was with the OEM dash. Now I have to put everything back to where it’s supposed to work with the aftermarket dash.
It turned out that I had 2 issues: need to wire straight to source rather than ECU like the directions in the manual and the power supply wasn’t quite right.
I’ll update here when/if I get everything working properly.
Instead of tapping the BLUE, WHITE, and BLACK wires from the CABS wire harness to the ECU, tap the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) under the airbox. The colors of the wire correlate to the CABS wire harness.
The yellow wire from the CABS wire harness with be tapped to a constant 12v (instead of the bike’s WHITE 1st heat wire under the tank).
As per the manual, you are supposed to wire into the clutch to trigger the blip and wire into the brake switch to toggle power to the CABS unit.
I tapped into a constant 12v power source for all time power. I also installed a second sensor (Pull Type) on the shift rod to trigger the blip. This allows for CLUTCHLESS downshifts.
I also wired an ON/OFF button from my button pod for the CABS unit. The way the system works is power is fed into the CABS unit and the sensor is in between Ground and the ON/OFF button. You you close the sensor, it completes the circuit when Grounded.
Furnished off the install with some Titanium bolts and lock nuts.
