Yeah, we have quite the variety of weather here, but none is as bad as other parts of the country. The difference is that we get a taste of what everyone gets.

Earthquakes, but people in California would laugh at.

Tornados, but folks in TX and OK would probably refer to them as nice breeze or possibly a dirt devil.

Hurricanes, but by the time they get this far inland they are usually only a cat 1 or tropical storm.

Snow... don’t even get me started! Let’s just say they close schools when snow is forecasted... even if we never see a single flake. You can imagine how they act when they get what would be a normal snow fall in most parts of the country!

I can deal with the weather here. We see everything, but nothing is to severe.

I remember the 2011 one in Virginia. I was down at Southside Regional hospital and it was shaking everything down there pretty good too. I got a kick out of this when it was being posted back then.




Wife was at home in Hanover, she said stuff rattled off the bookcase, dog ran for "cover", cats were freaked out and climbed trees... I was at work next to Richmond Airport... it physically rolled my chair and my fat 230# azz away from my desk, and was shaking my monitor.. the ceiling tiles were shaking.... I jumped up outta my chair and asked "did you feel that?".. everyone was kinda...dazed... then i said that had to be at least a 5.0; nobody believed me...   couple months later we moved back to Ohio.. after going thru 4 hurricanes, countless tornadoes, floods, and "odd" blizzards (Va. Blizzard drops 17" of snow... and power lines, and totally makes people "immobile")... Ohio is nice, a little earthquake, and REAL snow, are all we worry about.. tornadoes?... pheeeeew... we deal with that.
We have a basement now... didn't have one in Va.   Momma, dog, and cats, all hiding in a closet was funny to come home to.

My husband has both a series one and two FJR. I let him ride my recently upspecced GTR/C14 and 5 days later we were roadtripping across the country to get him one.
He isn't particularly short in the legs, but somehow finds the heavier GTR easier to stand up than the FJR.

thank you greatly for reporting what you found...  soo many wires, so little time..

that one "junction" point shown by Freddy above, is a "multi point" can-bus point, there are so many on this bike you were very lucky to find it.  Most of the Can-Bus connections are groupings of grounds. I don't know how you found the ones with the white wires, crimped, and covered in tape, but man, you lucked out there..  I'll "paste this one" in my memory banks.. and god forbid, I have to find it again.
congrats.

I repaired the wire and that was obviously the issue I was having. The wires are white and so those are not ground wires. The schematic shows one coming right off of the power of the regulator. The only code I ever got was code 38 for the steering lock. The white wire does go to the steering lock also so that sort of makes sense.

You are right about where the water collection point seemed to be. It is just off of that picture. That area is flatter and has the cable touching the plastic underneath. The area in the picture is sloped and the cable isn't touching on mine. There was moisture in the loom. The area of the junction was just about right too. It was a bit forward of the lowest point. It was about at the end of a little plastic channel. I thought maybe it was where the zip tie holds it, but it wasn't. It really seems like there is no stress on the cables there like you said. The junctions were not generally corroded. Only the one wire had seemed to be broken clean off. I would say that it was an assembly error. It would be pretty hard to crimp three wires into one. The other wires were fine. It was probably just hanging by a few strands and maybe some corrosion finally did it it.

One thing I did notice is that the right side of this bike has an extra piece that closes the gap between the side panel and the seat. The left side doesn't have one for some reason and so that area isn't really shielded. I am probably going to raise that crotch area up a bit so that water runs down under it and add some tape.  I might see about getting the side piece for the left side too.

had a 4.2 quake today, here in Ohio... about 6 miles from my home... I definitely knew what it was... lasted maybe 6 seconds, never felt the aftershocks tho...

kinda cool... freaks people out...
last one I can remember here was the day the Challenger Space Shuttle blew up, that quakes was less than 5 miles from my house... and was a good'n.... I was 160 miles away, up in a tree stand bowhunting... and felt it that far away...

Then we had one back in IIRC '11, in Va., and it slammed hard, about 20 miles from my home..., I felt it at work, 40 miles away from the center.. and it rocked for almost 15 seconds...

Yes but I am out of stock and nursing a shoulder injury- I cannot assembly any at the moment. Check back in a few (4 to 6) weeks and I <should> have some.

Also working on the website to fix various broken links and provide some more info. about the products.

Hello Brian
I was wondering if the Kipass bypass is still available?
 Mine just crapped out.
Thanks
