Okay, so first off, I have the worlds greatest wife. Sorry fella's, she's all mine.
For my birthday over the weekend, she got me an 05 LT! I now have the best of both worlds, a GS and LT. No matter what the situation, I can manage a bike for it, for the most part.
Well, unfortunately, my first ride on the LT, was taking it home from the restaurant where she gave it to me. It was a dark and stormy night, literally, just not the best for a first ride on a new bike, a model you have never ridden before. Made it home just fine and managed to play with most of the farkles along the way. The only issue I had was the freakin headlight was cutting in and out.
As was my taillights and other lights it seemed.
So once home, a check of the fuses and connections and all looks ok. A quick check here on the forum and I stumble across the load shed relay thing and what it does. Sounds exactly what I have going on to a T. Only issue is, WHERE IS IT?
I have the battery out and looking forward of the battery box towards the front of the bike, I see really only one bolt and it seems bigger than the 5mm talked about. I can see the main ground on the frame, it is an allen head. I can see a little wire thing going to the starter, small blue wire and a bolt behind it and a bit lower. Is that it? Or is it farther up inside? I looked at the one diagram I could find, but it is all greek to me as this is my first K bike. I can find my way around a boxer a bit, but the GS does not have all the tupperware in the way!
What I thought is the starter may be the back of the alternator. It is black plastic with cooling slits in it, looks like the alternator most likely. Where do I look from here?
Any help on finding this mystery load shed thingy would be greatly appreaciated. I want to ride my new bike!!
