Nodakbassmaster,

There is a fuel cut off switch in case of lay down or an accident that it will not let it continue to run. It kills the fuel pump. Make sure you hear it run, and not just the light comes on.

Other than that...I aint familiar with a fuel injection.

I couldn't think of the word earlier.....it was the "bank angle sensor" that went out on 1800VTwin's R. I will try to think of something else.

Sorry you are having so much trouble.......was this from installing your apes? Just trying to back track what you did prior to the failure.

I don't think it's from the Apes, but I'm not sure, put the apes on, the heated grips, the speigler brake lines, throttle cables and clutch line..... disconnected the rear end lights for now...

the bank angle sensor, engine stop relay, fuel cuttoff relay, kickstand switch are all good...

Great job Nodak........

We had a bank angle sensor go out and we didn't even touch it. No accident or lay down. Just quit. I am glad you got it fixed. Frustrating aint it.

as simple as it is/was it still took me 2 weeks to find it! Laughing I can't imagine how long it woulda taken a tech at a dealership and how much that bill woulda been! Shocked

now for these stupid high/low beam switches... what's with the connections on them? This is the second one I have had get a loose connection in 6 months! Rolling Eyes

If you really wanted to you can do what I did, zip-tie those suckers together so they don't come loose.

update on the headlight switch, I took it apart and stretched the spring a bit to provide more pressure and all is well, for now! Of course I destroyed my other perfectly good switch dissecting it to find the fix! Laughing
