Start Button Won't Work
edit:Attention: The fix shown in post #17 will disable the safety switches on the sidestand and clutch lever.
Have been searching here and troubleshooting, now taking a break and asking for ideas, experiences, clues, even a lifeline.
Start button won't do anything. Here's what I know so far:
Key works, turns on all lights. Solenoid functions with 12v applied to the white/red wire, engine cranks
Getting 12v from Kill Switch (red wire) over to the Start button. Kill switch works.
Getting 12v out of the Start button (black/red) when Start is pushed, and also at the red plug behind the front coil (same black/red wire).
Problem: The color wiring diagram shows black/red wire changing to all black at the red plug behind the coil. Mine does not, it continues on black/red stripe. The diagram in the download manual doesn't show the junction box and also shows all black from the button to the JB.
Headed back to re-check, but I didn't find black/red at the junction box, and got no power at the black wire I tested, the diagram shows the black start wire beside a green/white, which was there.
Question:Finding no power at the Junction Box .... Does anyone know any reason I should not run a wire from the black/red up front, directly to the terminal where the white/red is at the solenoid?
The diagram also shows a red/white coming off the black start wire and running to the IC Ignitor. Which I think will means I can't terminate this start wire and run a direct wire to the solenoid.
Oh nooo, I think I'm gonna have to peel the harness. Did I mention I'm pretty much colorblind too?
