Well, I'm partly there. Rostra installed, all diagnostic test performed to verify that buttons and sensors work. Cruise control does not engage. I guess it's time to go back and strip the tank off and check out the linkage again.
I followed Realshelby's mechanical connection. I also set the switches as he indicated. I also followed his wiring after reviewing the Rostra instructions.
One thing that might be different. There was an insert with my unit that states that lost motion is built into the Cruise Control and no bead chain is used. I had to use three beads to fit the cable to the throttle connector. The cable was not long enough to attach without the beads. Any thoughts on this?
The other thing that I noticed is that when I start the bike the Rostra switch shows "on". I'll have to think about that one.
In diagnostic mode:
the "set/coast" button lights the diagnostic LED,
the Resume/Accel button light the diagnostic LED,
both front and read breaks light the diagnostic LED,
moving the bike forward causes the diag LED to light up and finally, the
diagnostic LED flashes with engine speed when bike running.
Any ideas before I take the bike apart?
