  1. AMP SuperSeal. Sold at Amazon. Made by many...

    AMP SuperSeal. Sold at Amazon. Made by many including Muyi. I bought connectors and made my own jumpers. Proper crimp tool is nice but needle nose pliers are adequate.
  2. 40 lb/ft and Blue Loctite.

    40 lb/ft and Blue Loctite.
  3. K80 -- well you could turn the backup lights into...

    K80 -- well you could turn the backup lights into taillights with Red LEDs.:D

    Juan -- as I said before your trailer cable is for the AUS configuration. In the USA cable configuration, H and J are...
  4. Juan -- your trailer is the AUS configuration. ...

    Juan -- your trailer is the AUS configuration. CAN is Amber turn signals and AUS adds White backup lights....
  5. Search for "viair" as the replacement compressor.

    Search for "viair" as the replacement compressor.
  6. There's a reason (actually two) for fast idle after startup

    Mike -- two primary reasons for fast idle after startup. First, to rapidly heat the catalytic convertor to reduce emissions. Second, even the 1330's short intake manifold will collect atomized fuel...
  7. It depends...

    My apologies Idaho. I was trying to answer the question in its original framework.

    The ECM has two AFR maps, one for open loop operation and one for closed loop operation (HEGO feedback). ...
  8. Yes it does have an enriching ciruit for startup!

    Yes there is -- the enriching circuit is in the ECM firmware.

    The 1330cc engine is a nice piece of engineering. Buy the electronic service manual and read more about it. As well as the rest of...
  9. Don't screw up the rear brake piston

    In many cases the rear brake pads wear out before the front pads. In which case buy the BajaRon tool to retract the piston. Don't screw this up or you will be buying a new caliper as the threads...
  10. More details needed...

    Ernest -- you're really doing a lousy job describing the symptoms.

    "was running great then ... hard steering"

    At what mph did the hard steering occur?

    If it occurred at 10mph and 45mph...
  11. I think I understand

    Your AUS-configuration trailer came with a 7-wire cable terminated with a 9-pin round connector.

    Your Spyder has the USA-style 4-wire cable with rectangular 4-pin connector.

    And you want to...
  12. I would have liked to sway rear light assemblies

    K80 -- You have the AUS configuration trailer. I wish I could have swapped rear light assemblies with you. I had to convert dummy sockets to live sockets -- a real pain -- for Amber turn and White...
  13. I'll mention that 6th gear also felt a little funky (hard to describe)

    "I'll mention that 6th gear also felt a little funky (hard to describe)"

    Low mileage 3-year old Spyder: add a full bottle of fuel injector cleaner next fill.

    Drive until Low Fuel light.

    Then...
  14. Trailer wiring is an adventure

    K80 -- I never perceived any disrespect and besides I'm impervious to it.

    I was confused by the limited information you provided. Eg 7-pin. That isn't a standard BRP connector. It's for...

    Shorai LFX36L3-BS12 is the correct answer

    Shortly after purchasing my 77K mile Spyder I replaced the battery with a Shorai LFX36L3-BS12. I live in SoCal so cold cranking wasn't an issue. I installed the voltmeter because many posts said...

    Idaho said "If you get one from a 2015 or later you should be OK"

    There was a change around the 2018 model year to a "High Torque" DPS that used different wiring. See...
  17. K80 -- as I recall the 4-pin Deutsch connectors...

    K80 -- as I recall the 4-pin Deutsch connectors were outside at the front of the trailer close to the wiring entry point. Only SuperSeal connectors inside the trailer and those at the rear.

    RTL...
  18. This will be expensive unless...

    And let's unpack this statement "Also, it doesn’t seem to happen at highway speeds."

    I'm think by "it" Ernest is referring to "hard steering right after I had left the house" rather than the...
  19. Pressure = Torque

    And Peter's explanation answers the "pressure" question -- it's actually torque.

    Peter -- I thought the torque sensor was a tricky bit of metallurgy built into the steering column separate from...
  20. Mike has a good point -- with the Spyder in...

    Mike has a good point -- with the Spyder in Neutral and your foot off the brake, do you hear a chirp-chirp or squeal when you rotate the handlebars?
  21. DPS pressure sensor?

    I'm curious what this device is "power steering pressure sensor". Couldn't find it in the parts list. What source of information did you use to decode 0551?

    Hex head is the answer

    And I learned a long time ago what a pain Torx machine screws are and replaced them with flanged button-head stainless steel hex machine screws. Easier to see, I choose my own length and my ball-end...
  23. I like it

    I like the light although I'd mount it a bit higher in my line-of-sight. But these days my riding isn't close to the rev limit.

    The throttle-by-wire Spyder controls the rev limit event much...

    Yep missed that

    PeterOz -- yep after scaring myself reading about the death wobble (my Spyder didn't have the death wobble but had treacherous turn-in until I replaced the tires and shocks) I missed his very...

    Spyder suspension is a bit of a noodle

    PMK said it best -- the Spyder suspension is a bit of a noodle.

    Car tires and aftermarket shocks will help. Perhaps some extra toe-in. I looked into urethane A-arm bushings. Maybe there's parts...
  26. I concur -- start with the batterry

    As Turbine stated the Big Bike power is connected directly to the battery with two ring terminals. And with a 2015 RT the battery should have been replaced at least once. Arizona is usually a...
  27. Maybe the problem is Big Bike...maybe not

    After some research it appears that maybe Big Bike/Show Chrome might have had some electronics failures. So undo the two 5-pin SuperSeal connectors, check the fuses specified above and then see if...
  28. I don't understand how you accomplished this short

    I looked at the Big Bike 41-162 trailer harness and I'm really impressed on how you managed to damage your Spyder electronics.

    The BB harness taps into the left and right rear light assemblies...
  29. We're making progress

    "If memory serves me, it was the trailer "running light" wire that I grounded (connected to common)."

    If you shorted the trailer side of the Big Bike harness it would not cause problems on the...
  30. Let's start from the beginning

    Turbine -- you said "When wiring my trailer, and testing the right side turn signal. I inadvertently shorted the positive wire from the Spyder to ground."

    1. What positive wire did you short?
