Re: Center Stand Electrical??
Thanks, as usual to jzeiler, for the diagnostic I don't believe I have seen before: Unplug the connector and have a friend hold a test light or meter on the bike side and activate the button. If you get a light, motor is bad. If you get no light or indication proceed to the relay.
My stand worked for a while, then it quit, worked some more but it finally gave up and I just use the side stand. Had the bike in for a new front tire today so I asked Terrys2Wheel to check it - found the motor is bad. They verified by putting 12v to the motor itself - nothing.
Makes working on it tough if you can't center it. Maybe we can get a group buy on honda scooter starter motors? =-}
