Have recently tried the technique of lifting up the rear trunk complete and removing the rear wheel. this worked a treat. Reassembled bike and then went and checked compressor - no go!
I can not hear the compressor even attempt to work, all wiring seems intact. Any suggestions on what I may have missed. :lash:

It could be a bad relay or fuse. Swap the relay with another that you know is working to see if they work in another location, like headlights.
Check the fuses with a test light or multimeter on both sides of the fuses as looking only you can miss a break sometimes.

Also might be dirty switches, have you cleaned all your switches this year? Use electrical contact cleaner sprayed in beside switches and work the switch a bunch of times, multiple spray shots, with power off

Have you serviced the compressor this year?
There is a thread on doing that with baking the moisture out of the decadent beads. Use the forum search tool.

Hey, thanks everyone, another check and I realised the connection box near the alternator had been opened, check wiring again and all was right. Although nothing appeared to be disconnected all connections were checked at the same time.

It was mentioned the compressor should be serviced, is this a major job.
I am of the mind now that I need to do more myself to the 'BRB', Big Red Bus.

Higher out put alternator is next after a second rebuild of the original.

Cheers from 'Down under'
