GL1500 starts after releasing button solved
I know this subject has been covered several times, however I just wanted to bring this issue on the agenda once more.
Today I made a modification on the red connector (C57) over the right fan. I cut the black/white wire into two parts and added a relay there.
I took the positive voltage from 55A fuse at the battery compartment and the ground from the connector over dipstick.
The connections of the relay are as follows;
86: +12v from black/white wire coming from C57
30: +12v from 55A fuse (fused 15A)
87: +12v to black/white wire going to ignition coils and ECU
I also added a 15A fuse at the positive side located under the 55A fuse.
After this one hour modification, the symptom "bike starts after releasing button" disappeared. Bike starts as it is supposed to do without thinking whether it will start or not as in previous condition.
And another benefit of this modification is that you may crank the bike without starting, if you like, by removing the 15A fuse added under 55A fuse. If I am not mistaken some models may crank when the kill switch is off. But this may mislead the person to think there is a problem.
With this modification you will have this cranking ability when you need and the kill switch will operate normally.
