In a tale as old as time I was working on something else when I noticed a few unplugged connectors in the box under my tank...




I have a climers manual and have looked through it but I am at a loss. I have no idea what these connectors should plug into.

So what am I missing gentlemen? where should these things plug into?

Thanks,
Gene

Those are connectors for dealer installed options like alarms, radios, sirens, and lights.

looks like nothing is missing ... don't fret about it
one of the multi pin connectors is for additional accessories almost always unterminated in just about all k bikes

Hey!
The white cable is used forBMW K75 - 1100
For a secure connection of extras like navigation, charge mobiles, extra light etc.
In the relaybox it was designed for alarm, 4 connections with earth, permanent + over ignition.
8 A(96W at 12V) fuse 5 and 7 (15 A)

Cheers

A german man is selling a cable for this connection

That is what you call power, the alternator on my DUcati 250 produces 40w at max chat!

That won't run much of a starter......

Or does the Ducati have an olderKalorie type starter?

Hmmm?????
How often does a alternator run a starter? Unless there is something seriously wrong, I think the starter is the precursor to the alternator. If the alternator is running, the starter has finished doing its job already. I suppose if you are jump starting another bike you could argue otherwise!Very Happy

That was a Kryptic comment.

The Ducati only has a kick start. Using an electric starter [if it had one] with a 40W alternator would mean quite a few hours running to get the battery back to full charge....

Be good if you can make it down to France in September too.....kind of looking like I might get to go about 1/2nd September get to St Leon late 3rd September and stay there a bit longer, until 20th September. Ferry arrives Roscoff 7.30am so would have all day to maybe do the full 700km as I know the road well.

yep they were absolutely abysmal ...and 6 volts at that ...mind you, you needed to get the fly wheel - rotor remagnetised after about 10 years if you wanted that good output bob .

a special low current ignition coil was used from memory as well ...mine blew up so resorted to a vw replacement I could chose to ride at night ....only if I charged the battery before hand or less than 30 kilometersbefore she was dead . those scr for rectifiers were a good laugh ...

Mine has been converted to 12 volt and I have just fitted LED taillight and side light bulbs along with a mosfet regulator. I ride with side lights on as it is a legal requirement to have lights on here in France. I probably use no more than 5 watts with the brake on. The only other item that can consume any power is the headlight bulb and that is 35 watts. I have no intention of riding it at night as no one on my route would get any sleep due to the noise!
I should be out and about on it for the September meeting down here, it will feel safe when it is surrounded by visiting Ks.
