2017 4 Stroke condenser and diode update

Recommended Posts

I searched and couldn't find info on the Condenser and diode update. The previous owner sent me the parts but does any one have photos of where there located on the bike ? Thanks !

Take off the air filter cover/panel.  Loosen the 8mm bolt that holds the numberplate and pull up on it.  The condenser and diode are both tucked up above the tool pouch-if you have one, by the subframe upright.  

 

They are both easily unplugged and plugged in.  Just have to clip a zip tie or two to get the pieces to drop off the subfrrame.

I shoved mine up under the battery box, make sure you mount them upside down.

This helps prevent corrosion, at least theats what they say...

My dealer said he has mine, but wants me to bring my bike there to be installed? That will be a 12 hr round trip.

For something that simple id laugh and tell him to get them in the mail asap!! absolutely unacceptable to expect you to drive 12hrs for something monkey could install

If these are bad what issues do you see?

 

They show corrosion inside the shrink wrap. The corrosion changes the electrical values. The new ones are shrink wrapped differently and the instructions tell you to mount them opposite from the original position with the connector on the downside so water can't collect inside.

BTW, my local dealer gave them to me after recording my VIN# etc (warranty handout) and was fine with me installing them. It's a no brainer.

Stopped by a small dealer and got one no problem. He is only an hour from me. After talking with him I'm definitely going to be doing most if not all of my beta business with him.

There's also a small bracket that comes with the new style plugs. Check the 2018+ parts book to find it. 

Still you have to zip tie them...
