I ordered a small led shift light, I cannot see, keep up with that tiny little tach when tucked in, maximum accelleration. I remember it has been discussed before but where is the easiest spot to pick up a coil pulse, or tach signal on the vrod? This particular light will read either both coil pulses or just one cylinder. Also, is there a readily available switched 12 volt pickup point too somewhere? like an accessory plug or something? I know you would have the answers right off the tip of your brain for me.......you smart guy. Thanks.

Terminal 3 on the pcm has no wire but is a tach lead.

Got anything for me on a readily available switched 12v source? maybe an accessory plug?

I will check the schematic when I get a few minutes. There should be several sources available close to your light.

You will find a six wire connector under the clam shell that goes to the right hand controls. The grey wire in terminal 3 is key on 15 amp fused circuit that operates the start relay and run switch. It should be a plenty heavy circuit for the light but make sure and check the required amp rating of the light, shouldn'g be over 1-2 amps max and would only be used very briefly.

I guess the "Mr. Goodwrench" training goes all the way to the bone ;) If you're old enough you would even remember The Shell Answer Man. That's what my dad calls me :D

I and probably Max remember the original 20 questions on the telly. Is it animal, vegetable or mineral? This is where you learned to ax the right questions to get the answers you needed to give you the clues of what the item was that you were to figure out. Anyone understand all that gets 5 extra points and 10 if you remember the program too.

Kellermann Turn Signals

Max,
You seem to be the technical guru so here's another question for ya. I am taking off my front and rear turn signals and replacing them with the kellermann handlebar turn signals.The kellerman has only one wire while the stock has three.I spliced the purple(hot I suppose) and the blinker works.My question is will this foul up my security system? Can I leave the rear turn signals unplugged? So far I have only one front blinker hooked up(waiting for a replacement bulb for the other). When I start her up the red security key light comes on,goes off, and then comes back on a few seconds later. When I hook up both signals will this cure the problem since it is an open circuit,or will it always stay on since the rear signals will be unplugged.Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Kuzer you might ask Drheathenscum since he is the light guru, I am aware that it uses a load sensing circuit on the lights so you will need some sort of load on the wires. Joe also sells a load device to compensate for different kinds of lights. You also need to follow the directions for reading codes to make sure that your security light is on because of the lights but I am pretty sure it is.

This is the llink for instructions on reading codes without a scanner.
