Hi, Not had dealings with the switch myself but could the wires e the wrong way round ?

Thanks for the replies, I don't think i disturbed anything during fitting that's why i went for the horn route so i didn't have to take the tank off ,  after unplugging it it seemed to start as normal ! I will hopefully try a ride tomorrow to see what happens ! i will have to try the relay method !  the reading i was getting was around 13.8 v with the lights on.
Once again Thanks

Out of interest Tiger-G, can I ask where you bought the SH847 in the end? I'm thinking of getting one too, but they only seem to be over in the U.S.

Thanks

Hi mate,

The only place I could find them in Europe was from MTP-Racing in Germany. Although pricey (£144), I needed it, it was well packaged and the delivery was quick:

Just a quick update for anyone reading this thread.....

The newer versions of the SH847 have longer bolt holes, so no need to drill the frame or bracket any more. Which is a shame really, as I'd already drilled my new holes, as per this thread, before I got it...Doh !!   :icon_cry:

And.....the Triumph link lead (T2500676) does indeed fit straight on to the SH847.

I fitted my SH847 through the Triumph link lead and started the engine, I got a steady 13.8V from tickover right through the rev range. However, as the engine got up to operating temp, the voltage dropped to 12.9V on tickover ?? With a few revs on though, it was back up to 13.8V ??

I'm still a bit disappointed with the voltage, as I was expecting it to be up in the 14 volts. I've got a spare connector, so may try doing the Sasquatch fix directly to the battery, see if that makes a difference ??


I just wanted to say a big thank you to VABird and everyone else who helped me with my voltage issues. It's great to see that people are willing to take the time to help others out - THANKS !!   :icon_lol:


Edit: Just as a quick experiment to prove the theory, I took the output connector off the rectifier and wired a couple of wires directly to the battery. I got 14.2V on tickover, dropping to 14.1V throughout the rest of the rev range. Just wondering if it's worth ditching the link lead connector to go straight to the battery for the sake of .4V ??

Hi everyone,  Can anyone think of a reason why fitting a voltmeter to my Girly would mess the tickover up, i fitted a digital voltmeter & took the power from the horn & also earthed it to the horn mount ! Worked ok at 1st, then later that night i'm sure i felt it miss a beat twice ! The following morning i started her up & she didn't rev high as usual just ticked over very low for a few seconds then cut out ! this continued for about half an hour stalling at every junction. so i stopped and pulled the wires off to see if it was that but it seemed no different until i restarted it and it seemed back to normal  ! Just  been out & started her again & all is well ! I will wait a few hours for her to cool & connect the voltmeter again & see what happens ! I also dropped the oil & changed the filter too at the same time ! has any of you electric wizzards any ideas ????

So you fitted a volt meter, AND did an oil and filter change at the same time, then assumed the voltmeter was the cause?
Unless you have inadvertently created an intermittent short on the wiring, I would be surprised if a digital voltmeter had any effect on engine running.
I suspect problem lies elsewhere.
What was voltage reading?, did you perhaps drain the battery?, I think those bikes are very susceptible to voltage for the ecu.
Any chance you've disturbed something whilst fettling?

Hi mate,

I'm rubbish with electrics, just wanted to point out what you probably already know ?? If you wire your voltmeter to anywhere other than directly to the battery, you won't get a true reading. I suppose if you put a multimeter on the battery you will be able to see the difference between the two voltages, and be able to compensate the drop ?? Not a criticism, just trying to help. I've just wired a voltmeter in to the battery, through a relay triggered from the switched live on the tail light wires. A bit more hassle with the wiring, but always get a true reading.

Hopefully, someone will be along to help with the tick over problems, but I can't see how tapping in to the horn would be an issue ?? Sounds more like a IACV problem ??

Good luck getting it sorted  :icon_biggrin:
