☆This time I personally need your help....☆
This was a tough decision to decide on. I generally stay behind the scenes keeping this site chugging along. Joe, is the one that gives out the amazing wealth of knowledge he has. I've put an amazing amount of time into the bringing together this website and not to mention have footed the bills a few times. I've kept us hacker free for a damn long time. I never ask much of you guy/gals. Only if we get in crunch time and the site needs a little help. Ive never asked for the ridiculous thousands I have seen another site ask for.. ridiculous is the perfect word. I even removed ads for those that log in, severely cutting revenue. Sites been about helping people, not making money. I feel bad actually doing this.. but I need help. I have gastroparesis brought on from diabetes(20+ years). I've been struggling with this nightmare for over 3 years. Finally diagnosed beginning this year. Look it up. Look up worst cases... that's me. Ive lost 60 lbs since January. 28 days ago the company I've worked for for many years found their dirty lil way to fire me. I was approved for up to 3 days off a week for fmla.. that really pissed them off. So illegally fired, savings drained from medical bills, bad diabetic now with no insurance. I'm in deep shit. That is politely saying it unfortunately. If any of you guys cant help please at least keep me in your thoughts. If this was wrong, me asking for help, my apologies. I'm declining in health fast, and unemployment hasn't came through yet and that in itself is a nightmare. Anyone who can, please donate to the website. This time it goes to help me. Thank you everyone. Again, my apologies for asking. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn.

1995 XV535S Dies Wiring Issue?

Post by 68datroad » Tue Aug 02, 2022 6:23 pm

Picked up a new to me 95 XV535S and it has some wiring issues. Last owner bypassed side stand switch due to dies when put in gear. I have traced down wiring and found that it also dies instantly when fuel reserve switch turned on. Figuring the two must be related to a common wire? Thinking might be an issue with the TCI (safety system), neutral switch and clutch switch both working fine and as stated earlier side stand switch has been bypassed. Starts right up and idles and throttle up fine just dies when put in any gear. Appreciate any thoughts one might have. A lot of great information on this forum but unable to find anything discussing my problem.

This just posted may be of help viewtopic.php?f=61&t=2276

Otherwise, you need the correct wiring diagram and study it, then make a plan on how to perform a fault finding diagnosis. Usually, a short, or a broken wire/connector or poor ground are your causes. Poor ground can cause all sorts of issues.

Thank you. I did finally get it to run by grounding wire at TCI so obviously a safety system issue so continuing to troubleshoot per diagram.
