Windshield retraction
« on: July 18, 2013, 04:50:10 pm »
Has any electrical experts looked at stopping the windshield from retracting my bike is obviously still under warranty but I will try to stop it from lowering each time the ignition is turned off. As far as I can see its unessacary and will just wear everything out. You would need the switches for max and min position maybe it would just be a question of disconnecting a wire from the computer.?

Hi Dude

Check with the dealer tech's before disconnecting any thing  :182: . The electronics on this bike are flighty at best  :087: :087: You could end up with more problems than you barging for  :157: :157:

There is a setting that the techs can use but this is when the bike is connected to the diagnostics lap top.
I just make sure that the pins in the exposed hinges are lubricated and there should be no problems with premature waring  :084: :084:

Just my opinion  but during development I would imagine they will have put  it through rigorous testing and there is a very comprehensive warranty I wouldn't worry at all.

I would agree.... you never know what sensors and conditions may be triggered by just disconnecting a wire.

If you are concerned about wear then have the screen at its lowest setting and then it won't motor into position every time you start.

That is exactly what I am doing in the heatwave.  :046:
