That's one of the loud ones.

Look what the postman delivered  :D

Be sure to let us know how it works; I still don't know what the "starter solenoid relay" is supposed to do.

Brilliant idea ! Why havent I thought of that !?

Thanks a lot for your assistance - good to get some extra eyes on it ,0)

All the best.

Move the wire that energizes the engagement solenoid from the big post on the main starter solenoid to the small wire that energizes the main starter solenoid.

Hi Scottly.

Thanks for your reply - I appreciate your assistance in this matter.

I have attached a scetch of how I have wired the starter circuit.

All the best.

I've studied the wiring diagram a bit more, and the "starter control unit" is a safety device that only allows the starter to engage when the bike is in neutral, or the clutch is pulled in. The diode mounted in the stock handlebar  fuse holder serves to prevent the neutral indicator light from coming on when the clutch lever is pulled in.
Perhaps it would help if you posted a sketch of how you have the starter circuit wired?

Just an idea @ Scottly:

Would it be an idea to let the Solenoid Circuit be minus(-) switched instead ? Then when the starter (-) button is released, the circuit is broken and even though the starter motor generates voltage, it will not keep the solenoid enganged, since there is no minus.... ??

Dear Scottly.

Thanks for your reply - much appreciated.

Your explanation sounds right and its worth a try. I remember sitting for a long time looking at a diode in the original wire harness - wondering what the purpose could be - while ripping it a part.

Im going to try this out and get back to you.

Just to get it clear; the Diode are to be inserted on the + side of the Solenoid circuit, right ?

All the best.

Michael.
