hey just throwing in $0.02

use a multimeter if you arent allready. learn to use it if you dont know how. they are handy as and give you some good info. $20 at walmart.

ive been working on my bike all day, doing electrical . (converting electrical system from a race bike to street use can be a chore.) im trying to wire up my headlights and taillights without a stock harness. lets just say im doing about the same level of afro-engineering you are at this point.

i wired up everything as i thought it should be, and it didnt work. i was going by color codes in my manual, which told me use the b/y and w/y wires for my high beam switch. didnt work. checked for continuity, none. opened up the switch and sure enough the high beam used w/y and Y wires. checked them for continuity and it was good, wired them up and it worked as i planned.

moral of story: the manual isnt always right. manuals are awesome to have and you need one to do alot of things, but dont take its info for granted.

in my case i must have somehow gotten a headlight switch from a different model of bike somehow, i got it off ebay, so go figure. anyways, between my manual and my trusty multimeter, i know have my headlights wired up much better than before and have a better idea of how my battery/charging system, etc is performing.

lets just say im doing about the same level of afro-engineering you are at this point.

multimeter is out of the ?... i just get 2 jumper wires and put them to my tongue... :laughing6 ok maybe not.. but i dont have one.. i think i may have it, i found a racing forum where this guy had problems with his F4i cuttin off in long corners and he had to bypass it, he explains some of how to do it...

oh and im with ya on alittle southern enginuity.. but no one is on my level...

i am the king of jerry rig... :laughing6

off to try more...

ok so problem 1/2 solved.... but i need...

a 2.2 K ohm resistor to go from the pink to the red on the ignition (theft wire)

and a headlight wiring harness....


so if anyone has a F4i ignition or wiring harness they can let go of... LMK

otherwise, Frys will have the resistor and im just temporarilly ****ed on the tip switch problem bc i cant find the right wires so i just need a harness... tuesday i go to the honda shop and spend more money if no one can help me...

Site Sponsors? any help?

no you dont need the headlights for it to start, reason nomercy mentioned the headlights is because the tip sensor is mounted behind the headlights, trace that wire back to the main harness and tap the green and red wires together, it should be the two outside wires. as for the ignition, the pink wire needs 9v or 5v cant remember exactly, thats why u need resistors. if u supply 12v it wont prime. look up remote start install on cbrforums or stuntlife, i cant remember exactly where i read about it. if u still cant get it started tomorrow, pm me ur number and i'll see if we can get it to run, i live near hobby so it shouldn't be too far.

"Pink wire: What we have to do with the pink wire is make it act normal when using the ignition switch, but when trying to remote start it it needs to be disconnected from the switch so it can't be backfed and it needs to see 9 volts. First I will go over relay wiring and then how to make it see 9 volts. I connected to the pink wire at the computer. It was pin 19 on the right side plug of the ecm.
Terminal 87-9 volt input
Terminal 87a- pink (key switch side)
Terminal 30-pink (computer side)
Terminal 85- ignition output from alarm
Terminal 86- (-) output from alarm when remote started
There are a couple ways to make your 9 volt input. I was unable to make it using a zener diode so decided to just make it with resistors. Zener didodes will give you a stable voltage, but I could not get the circuit to work correctly with them. (let me know if you know how). To make your 9 volt source with resistors is very simple. The basic principle is that if you put to resistors in series the sum of the voltage used by them will be equal to the total voltage across the circuit. For example: Your bike battery is ~12v. If you put two resistors in series, one being 300 ohms and the other being 900 ohms, one will use 9 volts and the other will use 3 volts. Basically as long as they are this 1/3 ratio you will get the same. So with your resistors in series (in a row) connect the end of the smaller one to your ignition output from the alarm. The other end (which is the larger resistor) will go to ground. Now check with your multimeter to see the voltage across the big resistor (one lead between the resistors and the other lead at ground. You should have 9v or close to it (you may need to hook up the small resistor to constant 12v while testing it so you don't have to go through the remote start process everytime to test). If your voltage was correct go ahead and hook up terminal 87 between the resistors and measure your voltage. It may change at this point. If it is too low or too high you will need to adjust a resistance. You can go ahead and test it. If the fuel pump kicks on your almost set as long as the voltage is close to 9 (about +- .5v). If you need to do some adjustments just change one resistor. Lets say you need a higher voltage: You will need to increase the value of the big resistor or decrease the small one. Just keep making small changes and you will get there. "

that should be all u need, heres the full write-up incase ur interested:
http://www.cbrforum.com/m_27264/tm.htm

i figure u dont need the relay part because u dont have to worry about backfeeding into the ignition switch since u dont have one to begin with.
