Rev limiter lower than stock, no gear indicator
Last weekend coming home from a friends house got to have some fun. On a street that was not busy I ran into a guy in an old 30's sedan, hot rodded. He wanted to run so at the next stop sign we both got on it from the light. Fun stuff. We both shut it down in a short distance, no high speeds. But I did smoke him, which most bikes can against a car, like I said fun, not promoting this, and it was not a busy street or area(covering my a$$). In all the fun I did notice I hit the rev limit faster than normal. So I tried again down the road in a low gear, sure enough hit it at about 4500 rpm. So figured a couple of things have been wrong with it lately: cruise does not like to work at high speed, figured an adjustment, and my gear indicator has not been working, but the neutral indicator has been. So yes I did look in the service manual. Figured I check out the clutch lever switch. Found it is missing the actuator arm for the micro-switch. Put the meter on it, and yes it is broken. Disconnected the clutch lever switch from the harness, guess what the gear indicator worked. So took it for a test ride, catch being it will only start in neutral with it disconnected. So gear indicator worked with the test ride and the rev limit went back up to the redline. So now I just got to order a new switch from Paulie. Going to email you Paulie on this little switch and maybe a couple of other items. ............. So gear indictor stops working check the simple clutch lever switch first, unplug it if the gear indicator works, you know you may need the switch, but first check it with a VOM. I also had checked the wiring to it, and it was getting voltage at the harness. ..... NOT a cheap little micro-switch, that's why I got to see if Paulie can get it for me. Then if I am real lucky hopefully it fixes my cruise issue also, note cruise does work at the lower speeds around 50-mph. So with the can-bus on these bikes I am going to get the clutch lever switch working correctly before I chase the cruise issue, maybe I will get lucky and it will fix its problem also.
