Ah right, so that block connector would of plugged into a immobilizer antenna? I'll have a scan about now for a used ecu and lockset. Thanks for your help
I guess if you want to run that risk.That’s crap. It isn’t going to hurt it. I’ve read so many threads and articles and have never seen the “why.” It’s always “well that’s what I’ve always been told.”
The fear is always an explosion but that’s it.
Again, what’s the risk (besides explosion)? That’s what I’m legitimately asking, because the draw is only going to be so much from the starter and lower charger battery of the bike. No one seems to be able to explain why a car charging system is “too much” for a bike. 12v is 12v
I think the fear is that the battery is CAPABLE of providing a MUCH larger amperage. So if anything goes wrong, be it electrically, or physically (tight quarters, the pos clamp could touch the frame), shorting 650CCA is a lot worse than shorting 180CCA, and sure, steady-state operation is the same, i.e. when everything is running and she's idling there is no difference, but the transient response of the system under sudden heavy electrical load could vary significantly.That’s crap. It isn’t going to hurt it. I’ve read so many threads and articles and have never seen the “why.” It’s always “well that’s what I’ve always been told.”

TL;DR= True for steady-state, but the transient response could vary.12v is 12v
I've the fuel pump relay is a multi purpose one thats jot a few jobs on the bike from what i gather and its got about 16 wires going into it so i wouldn't know where to start, I have however tested to solionid and that is all good.. cheers for your thoughtsI know you said you had a spare fuel pump relay, but are you certain that the relay was good, or was it just supplied with the bike?
A friend with a CBR600RR just faced similar issue with indicators, no life, assumed relay, bought one off some fella, still didn't work, ended up hauling his bike apart even though I said hold on we'll get you a new relay to try, he didn't want to wait for it to get in through amazon, now his wiring is all over the place and the bike is in pieces, the new relay gets in and voila, works like a charm...
I would confirm the relay works as it should, hook it up to another circuit if possible, or make a makeshift circuit from a bulb and run wires directly off the battery, touch the solenoid side off the battery and see if the light turns on... If not, she's a dud.
Yeah as long as you've isolated that solenoid and know it works then you should be good!I've the fuel pump relay is a multi purpose one thats jot a few jobs on the bike from what i gather and its got about 16 wires going into it so i wouldn't know where to start, I have however tested to solionid and that is all good.. cheers for your thoughts
Cheers for your reply.. that one is fitted with a cap and looks to be blanked from factory so would make sense if it was for an aux.. it's the other 4 keeping me awake at night!!The one by your pinky looks like the 12vdc auxiliary connector on my '15. Not saying that it is, but it looks like it.
Hi pal, all four are black with goldish colour dots along them.. here's a better pic of the colours.. thanks a lotI’m otw to the cabin, when I get there I’ll haul up the wiring diagram and see if I can’t figure it out for you. Wanna let me know exactly the colours of the wires, like black/grey or just black etc.? Want to confirm cause I can’t really tell in the pic iirc. Writing this quick on my phone no time to check atm.
Thanks for your efforts pal much appreciated, that adds up, I'll have a look into see if I can find it the alarm module is available and if its coded to the bike/ecu or if it is just an alarm siren maybe.. strange the wiring is shown as a different colour thoView attachment 1012803 View attachment 1012804
So, I found this... I'm not sure if this is it or not 100% but that is the 2009 service manual wiring diagram, and it's go 2 connections going into component 98 (anti-theft alarm), they are all the same colour wire, black, although it does not show black/yellow. Interesting that your wires are black/yellow, otherwise I would say 100%, but if I were a betting man, given the fact that the bike had been at least attempted to be stolen, "Anti-Theft Alarm" seems to fit the bill... Can't guarantee it but I mean, seems legit to me. lol
If it does come to it and I need to replace the ecu would it be worth me fitting This ebay Item instead? Are they generally straight forward to fit? Any setting up required or does the autotune box do this for you? Am I right in thinking it should be mapped so the immobiliser is deactivated (incase the immobiliser bypass emulator doesn't work for any reason?) It has two bros racing cans will that make it anymore difficult to set up? Also will there be much difference to the power of the bike?
Sorry for all the questions hopefully someone with some tuning knowledge can help me with this one. Cheers
