Track Day Fuse Pull?

Which fuses do you pull for track day on a 2002 SV650S? I've pulled the "head lamp hi" and "head lamp lo" and "signal". After pulling these, I noticed that the dash (Speedo and RPM) no longer works after that. I wanted the dash to work. Is this possible? If I leave it like that will it be a problem?

Thanks,

Phil

just pull the head lamp hi and low fuse. You will never need to pull the signal fuse anyway. Not like you use your turn signals on the track. Your speedo/rpm lights are in conjunction with your signal fuse so plug it back in and they should work fine if I'm remembering right.

If it is easier, you can always pull the connectors loose at your headlights and taillight. That is what I did on my RC51, since the fuses were burried under everything else.

I know the theory is that the light will melt the tape to the lens. But on my '00 SV650, with the good quality painter's tape, not the cheap stuff, I've had no issues with leaving the light on.

I've heard the same thing, but taking out the head and tailight fuse on my 636 is BRAINLESS and takes about a minute so I just do it.

And +1 on disconnecting the headlights, thats another way to do it, that is of course if you have easy access to do so. Some bikes don't have the best design and are a PITA to do simple stuff like this.
