  1. Still waiting for ScuRoo to add a V85TT to his profile along with the ScuraR . . .
  2. So, as MartyNZ pointed out, this is what can happen if the main ground at the rear of the gearbox on the right is neglected. Service that well! The ground on the ECU grounds the ECU case. The crispy wire in the harness comes from up front, possibly the regulator (you should ground that case separately) or the lighting.

    ANSWERED Best Relay

    G8HE-1C7T-R1-DC12 is the correct OMRON High Current Relay. Unknown regarding minimum orders across the border.
  4. Yep: pretty sure we're looking for the 1C7T: "oversize relay on the normal base." I followed that DigiKey link to the G8HE: "quantity available = 0/ Part Status = obsolete" . . .
  5. Maybe not so much "used" as rebuilt/re-engineered/ricostruire one part at a time. Reminds me of some V11 I know . . .
  6. Apparently not entirely! Seems they are both on their way to caring new owners . . .
  7. Indeed. I found that conditioning the connectors in my harnesses contributed to better running overall. Nothing specific. Caig DeOxit® !
  8. When I first retourqued to the front yoke to the slightly higher value, it clamped tight to the output shaft. After a couple thousand miles, the sliding play returned. I was tempted to retorque it again, but the fasteners have not loosened. So, good question. Is the sliding movement normal and acceptable?
  9. This is my experience, also. Mind you, we have very high ambient temperatures in the US south and my Sport has never liked this with low speed traffic, parking, restarting. Dan M did some interesting data collection on the higher mass sensors becoming a heat sink with resultant diminished responsiveness.
  10. WOWOWOWOWOWOWWWWWW!!!!!! This is one extraordinary Tenni! Welldone, footgoose!!
  11. Agreed with gstallons about connections and checking the battery. Heat is hard on batteries. And the relays. With temps here in the US south at dangerous levels, the Sport knows she is not in the Alps. I moved an unstressed relay into the #2 postition and "think" *maybe* she was more forgiving on the way back home . . . Make sure you are using Best Relays!

  14. Rolf, Is this the Engine (head) Temperature Sensor or the Air Temperature Sensor?
