    EMERGENCY FUEL SHUT OFF

    I dropped my trophy recently on two separate occasions while practicing slow speed maneuvers, and the engine did not shut off. On previous occasions it always shut down. Does any body have any insight on how to correct this issue or does it have to be corrected at the dealership? TIA

    I've experienced a delay of about 3 secs (that can seem a long time) before the Tip Over shut down actuates, if it's longer than that it'll need checking at a dealer. Perhaps Digital might have an insight into an on bike testing suggestion other than just disconnecting it with the engine running.

    In theory... you should be able to unscrew it and tip the sensor on it's side and the bike should cut out. :164:

    If the Trophy falls to the ground while standing still. My suggestion is to continue stopping the engine with the red button, since the safest thing is that the engine will not stop due to the tilt sensor.

    Formerly these systems were used by mercury, very similar to the old domestic temperature thermometers. Nowadays, mercury is totally prohibited and therefore optocoupler systems are used by light or magnetic sensors.

    The Trophy inclination system works with 0.60 volts with the motorcycle vertically and the engine running, it has a counterweight valancin that what it does is that from a 90 degree inclination the valancin moves and its magnet stops inducing and varies the resistance with or which becomes 3.96 volts instead of 0.60 volts and that is where the engine  should stop. (The engine seldom stops at 90 degrees of incline), especially, if the motorcycle falls on the left side, for the left side it needs a good blow or that it becomes from 90 degrees of incline to 180 degrees.

    If the motorcycle falls on the right side, it is easier for the tilt sensor to act at 90 degrees, but sometimes it also fails ...

    So it will always be more effective to stop the engine by the red button, to be honest, the times that my motorcycle has crashed while stopped, the engine has never stopped, I have always had to stop it with the red button.

    Digital, thank you for the detailed reply. The last two falls where slow and gentle to the left side. My Tralex pannier bars are working well.

    If the Tralex bars are phenomenal, they don't twist, the suitcase bars also protect the suitcases very well.

    I have to admit that Tralex does an impressive job and very to the millimeter.

    Digital :

    Where is the tip-over switch located ?  BTW, looks to me like it uses a Hall Effect sensor.

    Yes, I also think it is a Hall effect sensor.

    Under the passenger seat next to the latch of the same seat.
