Re: how do I change the relay for center stand 08 k1200lt
OK. Did you have bike in neutral, side stand up and brakes released when you tried this? Also the bike needs to be vertical, i.e. you need to be sitting on it.
Normally a "quick" flashing light means one of the interlocks is not met. The relay being bad would not cause any indication since it is not monitored by the controller.
A "slow" flash just means the controller "thinks" it is operating the actuator and either the relay is bad or the motor on the actuator is bad.
This is not uncommon as there can be corrosion inside the electric motor on the brush ground screw. This will prevent the motor from running. Also down on the right side there is a big, black, two pin connector that is for the actuator, make sure it is seated (has a big red and big brown wire from the relay).
I have seen many motors go bad but no relays so far. So my money is on the motor.
