Ok I am realizing that my manual is or 2006/2007, but the bike is an 08, hope that doesn't make any difference in wire layout?
But following the color coded diagram which I just realized existed (i was trying to go off the black and white ones and that was tough)
I see the B/R wire is on (#16) Coupler 2 "wire harness Front cowling wire harness", connects to the (#1) main switch (but changes color there) and also connects through the (#12) gear position switch, into (#13) Coupler 1 "wire harness Front cowling wire harness"
I can sort of see what you're talking about Ray, with the wire going from Coupler 2 through the Relay Unit ( 76 / 77 - starting circuit cutoff relay / 78 fuel pump relay) and then also the (#71) Clutch switch, then black/yellow into ECU, but the clutch behaves fine, or it wasn't acting up before, guess I need to put eyes on them physically.
Which couplers are these exactly? Are these actually inside the front cowling like where the headlamp assy is?
Also found this to be handy -
See book number page 20 for specific troubleshooting on code 19, basically nothing new, going to follow from the big wireharness under the gas tank, and the couplers runs off it somewhere i think? I'm hoping just under the gas tank and not too deep !
