Center Stand not working

I was working on the bike today, moving it around the garage. Went to put it back on the center strand and the light for the center stand blinked real fast and the center stand wouldn't lift the bike up. Now the light wont even blink, figured it was a fuse that blew, but i cant find it anywheres. Does anyone know where to find it?? Thanks.... Chuck

Re: Center Stand not working

The function of electric centerstand is controlled by a bunch of limit switches. Check first that your both brake switches (hand and foot brake) work properly (= your brake lights are not on when you are not touching the brakes) Also the gear must be in neutral, clutch not activated, reverse not on, side stand up (this I'm not sure of) etc.

As far as fuses are concerned, check fuses 6 and 7 in fuse box # 2 (both 4 amps). They are connected to EHCS unit.

Good luck with you search...
