Yeah! Funny how it came full-circle like that.
I remember looking at the test for the VDS. Checking the connector for the supply voltage was simple, but checking the output voltage didn't make much sense with the tool they suggested. The manual suggests using a simple needle adapter set to check the terminals (which I have) while the VDS is connected, but this doesn't make much sense since the needle adapter set cannot reach those terminals if it is connected. That is where I got stuck and just decided to put it back on.
That sounds like a solid idea!
I am in the process of some major wiring, I purchased a Innovv K1 camera system back in December, I just received some led strip lights and intend to have running and signal on both barkbusters. Part of the Valve Shim job was to document a better / easier method, in the process of putting things back I discovered some serious wiring harness problems, today I found another one , just above the main shock, something you wouldn't normally see, however I have the bike strapped down on the lift and am using ratchet tie downs, I have about 200LB's downward force on the rear. I noticed the top squared edge against the wire harness, FYI , I have the lowering link. The wire harness at this point is held in place with a single wire tie that pivots out of a hole on the inside of the frame , it is conceivable that the shock without the lowering link could hit this harness and wear through . I installed a 100LB wire tie here,and have about a 1/4 inch gap now, I also found a second wire tie just past the seat bracket towards the rear of the bike that was pushing the harness down towards the shock. I removed that wire tie and will include that in my report.
Short story, I am up to 10 of the 100 LB wire ties now, dealing with various points of the main wire harness, my opinion POS, I would be ashamed to let something like this leave my hands/ shop. Kawasaki Take Note I would suggest
you make a new wire harness jig, and add about 5% more wire .
