No Key in
I have a fix for that.
Please share Voodoo
"Doc. It hurts when I do this" Then don't do that.
I ran right out to try it. Nope. Not at all. Interesting phenomena.
Hello Speirmoor , Do you also have a high key off current draw like MXMartin does ? (Through the clocks optimate fuse which bypasses the key switch)
Ok, I gotta ask, as mine doesn’t have one... what is that button?
Take another look at your dash
Oh... THAT button...
I believe I do as the bike wont hold a battery unless on the "Store" while parked. How do I test for this?
It's not a problem, just an undocumented feature that came free with your 961.
The cure is to not press the button. Or else.
Pull the clocks/opimate fuse out from the fuse box , the place your amp meter probes into the connections where the fuse was pulled out. Have the meter set for the milliamp scale and have the probes in the current position ma jacks on the meter (red in ma , black to com , dial set to ma). Then read the current off the meter. Let us know what reading you are getting . MX said his was 19ma . Others have reported 11ma and 9 ma , I have less than 2 ma. Others like FE may have even less , his battery lasts a long time with no maintenance charger. I have gone two weeks without a charge and I can start my bike no issues. Some of these VDO's must be drawing more current than others. Once you get that information , find out which tacho or speedo is the worst offender .
Thanks Tony A
I'll get on it next time I'm at the bike
