Tip over sensor: '01 600 F4I?

I am helping a friend convert his F4I into a streetfighter.

The only thing done so far is the removal of the front and rear fairings.

THe bike will not start now. Is the tip over sensor located somewhere in the headlight assembly? There is a thick wiring harness that you have to disconnect to remove the assembly. Is it possible that the tip over sensor is the problem or some other "Hondaisim" about starting the bike without the headlight harness connected?

The bike powers on, turns over, but will not start. Also, I do not hear the injector noise.

Thanks.

yeah. it's mounted on the back of the headlights. it's a black box held on by two bolts with three wires coming out of the back. if you take the two outside wires, coming off of the bike and cut, strip and splice them, that is how you bypass that sensor so the bike will start.

Here's the sensor as it sits on the back of the headlight. You want to connect the red and the green wires to bypass it. Hope this helps.

The one in the pic is not mine to sell. Also ziptieing it is not really a safe way to go. Just from my personal experience. You never no when a ziptie will break or just wear out and loosen up a bit and if the sensor falls the bike will stall out. If you're in a tight curve or any given number of situations it could definatley cause an accident.

Thanks all,
the tip over sensor was indeed the culprit. Once I "strapped and rigged" the headlight assembly to the bike she fired right up.

How come you can not think of these simple little issues after 4 hours of working on someone else's POS?

Frustration is a when it comes to wrenching.

At least, if it was yours, you could throw tools at it.

or you can bypass it. run a jumper from the red with white stripe to the green one.

(this is from the main harness it should END right about at your forks, its a 16 pin connector.)

All,
thanks for your responses.
I simply rigged the Headlight assembly to the bike with bungee cord which was good enough to start and get the bike to the car wash. Paint and body work is being done by Tony so we should be good to go by next weekend. The streetfighter look is the on a CBR F4! I can not wait to see the final product!
