Preventing windscreen retraction When powering down
« on: June 17, 2019, 08:57:45 PM »
On a Yamaha FJR, there is a plug that can be unplugged to prevent the windscreen from retracting when the bike is shut down.  Is there a way to do this on the 2017TTSE ?

No there isn't. 

The Screen always returns to park at the lowest position when the Ignition is turned off.

Would that plug be easy to get to by any chance? Is that in the Yamaha owners book or something you found out by chance?

I don't see why they all couldn't have designed an override feature in the settings to stop the screen retracting every time you turn the ignition, it's only going to wear the motor, pivot points etc out faster,... it is annoying.

Someone posted the procedure in the FJR Forums.....simply the unplugging of a plug.  Not sure that would be in the manual.

Perhaps member Lemuriano could chime in here as to whether or not he has worn out his windshield drive motor or pivot points.  His would be a good indicator due to the fact that as of our "Twisted Trophy Southern Rock Tour 2019" get together he had 91,000 miles on his Trophy.  If his hasn't worn out I would think it unlikely any would wear out, and if his has worn out he would be able to indicate an approximate lifespan of said parts.

If you wish to have the screen remain in the "up" position for maintenance purposes, you can switch the ignition on, put the screen up, then disconnect the battery. Re connect the battery when you are finished and it can be powered down

I do not exactly know what you want. But if you can do what you want with the screen.

For example, cancel the input signals that come from the switchboard that attack the relay of descent and rise.

Once this is done, we can put a two-pulse interructor, which would lower or raise the screen and the cables that would come out of the switch to take them to the two relays, the up and down.

What we would do with this, is that the screen would not go down, if we do not give the ignition contact, it would only go down or up if we hit the switch, press to go down or up, once the motorbike stops it would never go down, but it would stay in the position that we had itAnother thing, is that if you do not want to put the optional switch. we can use the same one that comes from origin, it is only question of locating the cable of rise, the descent and the common of both.
