K75 - Starbucks Warrior build
« on: November 21, 2018, 03:06:09 PM »
Hey guys,

I've been getting a lot done with the bike in the last couple of weeks and wanted to share some updates and raise a few questions.

I've rerouted the wiring for the BEP3.0 to sit under the gas tank, bought clip ons for a new brake and throttle setup. Purchased a CNC'd top fork clamp, which should be arriving today.

I've got a couple of questions regarding the stock throttle and clutch cable connectors, where were you able to source parts to make these fit with aftermarket components, or did you purchase more universal clutch and throttle cables? I just bought a new clutch cable, so if I need a custom one I can help someone else out with an installed one for a discount.

This should do the job. I just buy replacement cables if needed. I purchased a Vanthill replacement clutch cable which fits with no issue

Returning from a long production and back on the bike... well working on it.

I have an issue after I've rewired everything for new controls. My indicators, lights, etc all work on the new left hand controls that I've wired up.

My issue is on the starter side of things. I've exhausted the search function here and on YouTube with no avail...

Current checklist:
I've got a fresh battery
The starter relay is perfect
All of my grounds are clean, check out perfectly with continuity and are securely fastened
My cylinders aren't flooded
The Clutch Switch is bypassed
The bike is in Neutral
Brake switch is connected

Symptoms:
Turn off the kill switch
Press the ignition... engine cranks
Let go of the ignition... starter turns off, bike dies

Poorly shot video of said issue:


Any guidance is appreciated!

Thanks!

Were the tests in this post part of the exhaustion?
