RE must know that there just isn't any scope for random electrical glitches on this generation of their products. The electrics just have to be rock solid on the UCE models.In general, are they?
I just went out to verify that the MIL light does not come on with the side stand down. Put down the side stand and turned on the run switch and the MIL light and the fuel pump came on and the bike started. If you move the side stand a little up from the down position then the switch works and neither the MIL light nor the fuel pump come on and the bike won't start. So yes there seems to be some problems with the electrical on these new bikes.
"LEGEND" eh? Is that CMW code for complainer/whiner?
i would imagine it more to be a LEGEND like you find on maps, as in where they should look for nooks and crannies when checking things. basically, you're taking one for the team
You Chris's and your green bikes with fawlty wiring!! Dang UTT!! - Oddly - I did a little digging for the factory fellows (gREat guys, all, BTW!) and found that YOUR green Classics and MY little "shop mule" probably TOUCHED each other other going down the assembly line ... Go figger. So if anyone ELSE named Chris wants to buy a V.Green Classic with a chassis number of between 500450 and 500499, I'll file a formal protest .... Heeheehee!! BTW - That was good find on that goofy wiring connector - and an easy fix after all! Thanks for all the valuable input on this.
