I'm reassembling after a frame off right now. Under the seat by the starter solenoid is a wee wire -red with yellow stripe . Do any of you know where it lives?

That wire terminates at the large red lead in the picture. Terminate to the top side of that lug.

FYI, I just pulled my pillion, my seat, the black cover that holds the rear master cylinder, and viola, I figured it out! You owe me a beer

Ok I think it was on the solenoid ganged with the non-battery-side cable. That's what seems most logical to me.

Levi, it goes to the large RED lead, which then terminates to the + of the battery.

DO NOT terminate it to the other lug.

By the way, I'll be asking for help soon when I do my 12K service. Probably in the next couple of months.

Me and Joe Winters need to get this done this winter. As I go, I'll be taking photo's and then numbering my steps with cable labeling tape that I can write a corresponding number that links to the photo. That should make it a little easier.

Levi, was this your first 12K service? Was it easy to remove the frame?

I realized that you were advising the opposite of my determination, thank you.


This is my first 12K and the frame had to come off so I could coat the inner frame with DEI gold foil.

The biggest lesson-learned I can take from the process is to have an engine stand next time. The proper kind that bolts to the engine. With that little gem I could have split the bike in half the time easily. I used a trolley jack and an engine hoist to do my split. I also used my track stands at a couple of places in the procedure. I had the engine/swingarm strapped to the pad area of the jack for stability. Again, this is where the engine stand makes it's money. I had the frame/front end suspended with my engine hoist which it did quite easily. It was a fight to get proper alignment of bolt holes because of my loosy goosey arrangement though. Luckily I had two helpers to guide and fidget.


The electrical was really no problem at all. All of the plugs are where they need to be to return to their partner and everything is logical. It's just like my old STT only with more connections.


I just read the threads on this job and watched Robs video on YouTube where he dismantles his crashed race bike. Next time won't be nearly the time or effort. I'll have a stand and the experience of this service to dial the duration of the job way down.


I really appreciate your assist on the cabling. I'm always 180 out.
