    Default wiring guru's chime in....I have an issue that's baffling me

    I'm on the final phase of my build and was doing some final testing today. I have something weird going on that I cant figure out. My battery died and I replaced it today with the Motobatt. I'm not sure if I had this issue prior or not, I never noticed it before.

    So I have the LED tail light/ brake light/ turn signals wired up. I wired them using the stock plug. When I air out my air system, the right rear turn signal goes out for 3 seconds then comes back on. Only the right, only when airing out. Its fine when airing up. The air ride wiring isn't hooked up to anything that the rear LED's are, remember the LED's are wired using the plug on the factory harness. When not adjusting the air ride, the rear LED's work perfectly.

    This makes no sense to me!!

    On a side note, I don't like the terminal connectors on this motobatt battery. They are hard to get tight.

    Just make 100% sure they are tight or you will see all sorts of weird things happening and if you loose the connection to the battery when the bike is running you can damage the ECU.

    See screen shot below from page 5-5 of the M109R service manual.

    I’m pretty sure the battery terminals are tight right now. I’m not as confident they will stay that way.i don’t think that’s what’s causing the issue I’m currently having.

    It’s like the air dump switch is causing a momentary ground or something that’s affecting the turn signal. But the air system is wired independently, it has no wiring in common with the rear turn signals, and even more strange it’s just the right side.

    Sounds like a wire is getting pinched and causing a ground issue

    Maybe I’m looking at this wrong. I’m thinking the air dump wiring is affecting the turn signal. Maybe it’s the fact that the fender is dropping, that is pinching the wire for that turn signal. Each side turn signal has its own wire on the blinker genie. It didn’t look like it would be affecting it, but it makes sense. Although it’s still odd that it’s only for 3 seconds after I dump, then it comes back on. I’ll play with it tomorrow and see what I can come up with.
