I'm new to the forum world, I usually repair everything myself. however i am at a loss.
i have a bunch of pictures and videos but i do not know how to post them either
I bought my 2009 Daytona 675 in June, and for about a month, didn't have a single issue with it. For the past 2 months however, I have had constant issues with electrical. I've replaced the stator, the battery, and the rectifier. Now i have a wiring gremlin i cannot seem to track down for the life of me. The ignition wiring harness was what I thought the culprit to be, maybe a bad solder point, or a dirty pin in the connecting points, but after tonight, pulling everything apart, including the entire ignition assembly, I am to no avail.
There are times i have to wiggle the harness now, just the ignition harness, at the connecting point, for the bike to even begin turning on. Now lately while i have been riding, it is as if it wants to die. It has been cutting out, dash flicking, loss of power to all electronics, intermittently. When i bought the bike, the normal startup sounds would engage, and the fuel pump would engage a single time. Now the fuel pump is engaging every couple seconds after turning the bike on before starting, and continues to sound like its priming until i crank it up.
Ive checked all my fuses, all the connecting points on the harness itself and theyre all clean and good to go. My kick stand sensor is fine and not causing any issues, which is what i thought it could possibly be.
Tonight while trying to troubleshoot, i managed to somewhat pinpoint the wiring issue. When i wiggle the ignition harness at the connection point to the bikes wiring harness, the dash flickers, and/or the bike will cut power completely and then come back on like nothing was wrong. Ive moved the wires around that the ignition itself, no lights flicker, everything is fine, it only fickers and wants to cut power when i wiggle the connecting point on the harness itself. Ive gone through the entire connecting area, the pins are good and snug and not burnt on both the ignition harness and the bikes wiring harness that it plugs into. The harness leads nowhere else other then to the main harness, and to the ignition.
Ive read that this seems to be something of a common occurance with the daytonas, however, havent found much of a solid answer as to how to fix it. I have been told its the main fuse, which was check and is fine, been told its the starter relay, been checked and is fine, been told its just a loose wire in the ignition, was checked tonight and theyre all fine, have been told its possibly the guage cluster connection coming loose, but i dont see how that would be the issue, when that part of the wiring harness is seperate from the igintion assemblies wiring harness.
Im not good with just about anything electrical by any means and am trying to avoid paying an arm and half my soul for a shop to diagnose an electrical gremlin, to possibly have to problem reoccur in the future.
