I notice it got warm, i held it before I soldered to see if it would fail. That's why I asked about the 'check engine light'. I'll be closely monitoring to in the coming days to ensure it doesn't fail catastrophically. I mean, I bought 5 for like $1.50 so, if it fails I'll look for a solid resistor.I just put on a 67Ω 1/2 W resistor to test. It get's quite hot when active. Too hot to touch if I really work it, but it doesn't fail or anything. It's interesting because you can tell it activates the SAS when you close the throttle. If you blip the throttle quickly (rev-rev-rev-rev-rev) it'll heat up quickly and get hot. As soon as you stop doing that, it cools right off. If you slowly increase revs or hold revs, the resistor stays cool. At least that was my observation. The heat is probably fine since you'd not likely sit and rev like that over and over and over, and the resistor cooled back off quickly.
TransNone13, if you hold your resistor and blip the throttle a bunch, how hot does your resistor get?
I capped everything, no hoses. I also ordered some flame proof resistors to swap to when they come in for peace of mind.Did you hook all of your hoses back up, or keep them plugged?
Two would be awesome! Then I can do my brother's Scrambler too.AnotherHobby, if you want 1 or 2 of those for yourself, I will send you some!
Alright, well I expect them next week. I'll put 2 in an envelope for you. PM me your addy when you get a chance.Two would be awesome! Then I can do my brother's Scrambler too.
No, I'm just more motorcyclist than electrical engineer and this seems to be working.Any reason we are not using 5 watt wire wounds - if heat is a concern ?
Crap, I just put it on this morning and didn't see your post until now.Just wanted to post back that the resistor ultimately failed, put the valve back on for now. Might want to look into the wire coils...
Run it until it goes and then just put it back on if you feel so inclined. No harm, no foul. Just need something more robust to handle the heat cycles it seems.Crap, I just put it on this morning and didn't see your post until now.
Oh well, my hoses are already plugged anyway, so I can just undo it and plug the wires back in.
Did you use a resistor on yours? To do it right with that connector I would want to cut it off then solder it then shrink wrap it, but then that would also not sit well with me.
The two tubes removed which have been blanked off with the rubber caps.
What did you do with the tubes are those blanked off as well, what are they connected to?
