I bought the Pingel Electric Shifter.. I have mounted it in the stock location to start. I am planning to install same as kspz3 once I get back from Myrtle Beach, going for the week. Anyhow my problem is I am having he same problem as kspz3, I keep blowing the ECM fuse between 2nd and 3rd. I am pulling power off of the Ignition, worked fine until I installed the kill box. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some insight.
Thanks

shifter

Have you solved the fuse problem yet? I am interested in the unit but would like to have no problems. Would you recommend it?
thanks

did you try taking power off of something else? like the blue wire for the lighting circuit?

btw, why the electric shifter?

I talked to Pingel tech support and they are sending me a new kill box. I mentioned what happened to fellow VRodder here on VRodForums. Using it without the kill box on my test rides and works great, the kill box will just take it to the next level. I chose the electric shifter since I will just be using it just for fun. I wanted to be able to use it anytime, not when I remembered to stop by the gas station and fill the air bottle. I plan to mount it below the belt after Myrtle Beach. I am already way behind the power curve, I have the bike torn apart. Skins, lowers, rear swing arm all back from the paint on Sat. I gave up after I messed up the paint job for the 4th time.

I didn't because it works great without the kill box, and the red wire from the ignition is not electicly close to the ECM line. I believe it to be the kill box is grounding the coil signal to long, in turn high current draw on the ECM and blows the fuse. I still have the old one, once new one arrives, and I get the bike together, I plan to take it by my old calibration shop and put an O'Scope to both and see just how long the ground signals are, should be just 140ms, but is adjustable from 90 to 160ms. We shall see.
