VFR800 ghost FI light FIX
So after my LED fiasco I ordered a new connector to fix my instrument panel.
I contacted RVZ motors to see if they had a wiring harness of a VFR800.
They replied quickly and had some old wiring harnesses of a VFR 750, the blue and green connectors are the same as my 800.
The only difference is the 750 version has more pins in use, I only needed the pins so more spares 🙂
So cut, solder and insulate and it was ready to go again….
It started up without problem and everything worked fine again… even the FI light blinked with the indicators.
I traced all the ground leads on the back of the instrument cluster, cleaned all the connecting parts so that shouldn’t cause any problems.
After some digging on the interwebs I found fellow victims, turns out mister Honda thought it was a good idea to have all the ground wires got to a single place and connect them together. 🙁
I already cut of the connectors of my regulator/rectifier because they where shit, this one is next.
Mine wasn’t so bad as the ones above, only one wire was black so I cleaned all of them and squeezed the pins tighter.
It has to do for now, in a month or two the whole bike will be stripped anyway.
