05' LT ongoing project questions!
I bought an 05' LT knowing it needed work. The original owner passed away and it was purchased by a friend of the family who knew little about it. When the second owner purchased it he thought it needed a "starter" in fact it needed a sprag clutch. A family member offered to repair the bike and thought better about it when he took it apart and realized he wasn't a mechanic.
I replied to the craigslist ad and negotiated a price then drove several hundred miles to pick it up realizing things were a little worse than expected, I still felt like I had gotten a deal. I bought a parts bike a week later and grabbed some goodies off of it and transferred them to the 05'.
I replaced the injectors, the brake lines (spieglers), dropped in an H.I.D. headlight, slapped on some PIAA lights with ez mounts and put the L.E.D. in the right control housing (looks great), dropped in an odyssey pc680, installed a k&n air filter, flushed the brake fluid, changed the oil, etc.
Now the bike is about 98% reassembled and I found out that the center stand doesn't work, the brake lights stay on when the ignition is on, the a.b.s. is flashing brake failure, and although I thought the oil change fixed the sprag clutch when it started 4 consecutive times afterwards it hasn't started under its own power since, plus the alarm keyless entry doesn't work.
I think/hope some of this is related, but would like some help sorting this out.
Sprag clutch- the fresh oil is still very dirty so I think the rislone is doing it's job and after a long ride I may get lucky and cure the sprag clutch. If not I'm not too concerned because I know how to fix it although it's a lot of work.
Brake lights- I don't think it's the lever/pedal switches because I hear them click and the abs pump isn't on all of the time but only when I engage the brakes.
A.B.S. brake failure- the brakes work but I get a constant rapid flash. I have firm pressure at pedal and lever. Fluid is topped off.
Note: The "volunteer mechanic" cut the wires to the taillight. I soldered and insulated them and had hoped that that would cure the abs code but so far it hasn't although I haven't ridden it since the repair so it may not reset until it has completed the start up test?
Centerstand- I'm pretty sure the motor just needs brushes, and is the last of my concerns because I know I can fix it eventually. I do get a rapid flash of the indicator while holding the button?
Alarm- I care about two features keyless entry and courtesy lighting... neither work. The light on the instrument cluster responds to only the fob "2" button. I get no audible or signal correspondence. Note: The top case is off which is how I ride unless I'm traveling or two up.
Looking forward to the responses, and more importantly riding a newer LT, my last one was a '99 which I miss.
