Bike kept dying; spliced wire problem; the fix

Recommended Posts

My 400 kept dying on hard landings, whoops, angles, etc. Anytime I got to really nailing some whoops hard or trying to land after hitting a jump, no matter how small, the bike would die.

Finally, I took at look at all the wires I had worked on, and sure enough, it was where I had removed the sidestand kill switch that the problem was found.

If you remove any switches: the one at the clutch where you have to pull it in to start the bike, the sidestand one where if you put the bike in gear while the stand is down it stops, no matter what you do, make sure you do your wiring better than you think you have to. I thought mine was fine, had done it on lots of dirtbikes before, but oh well, this time I didn't do it right the first time so I had to fix it later in the woods.

There's my tip :thumbsup:

You`re not the only one that has done that .. I got about 2 miles from my house & my connection for the side stand switch under the side came apart !! I sure am glad this came with a tool kit .. :thumbsup::ride:
