Spent the afternoon installing the Rostra electronic cruise control on my DL650. I located the control unit in the left fairing and connected the throttle link to the rear link per the how to threads on this forum. It's all looking good on those fronts.
With the wiring, I'm looking at doing something simpler than has been done here before by getting rid of the control pad entirely and just using the passing switch to set the cruise. I got the idea from here (see post #29) http://www.fjrforum.com/forum//index...ic=11194&st=20
, where someone replaced the control pad with a small SPDT mini toggle switch.
I'm figuring I can take it one step further by using the (IMO) otherwise useless passing switch, keeping the Set/Coast funtion and getting rid of Resume/Accel, and therefore have no visible signs that a CC is installed. I realise that the CC would have to be powered up all the time and that I lose Resume/Accel functionality, but I think it's a small price to pay for that clean installation look and no need to buy/weatherproof a control pad.
Another thing I am thinking of wiring in is the NSS line, which I had to use when I installed one of these units on my cruiser because it lacked a tacho signal, so that the cruise automatically disengages when the clutch is pulled in. This requires the dip switches to be set for automatic instead of manual gearbox and it works perfectly on my cruiser. The wire chosen goes to ground when the clutch is pulled in, which is what a NSS line does in a car with automatic transmission if it is inadvertantly popped into neutral. As I am LED lightless, all of this can be done without requiring any relays, including the clutch line, well as far as I can determine anyway.
Here's my draft circuit diagram, which I aim to wire up tomorrow. Can anyone see any flaws in my wiring or operating logic?
