    Exclamation TnT_service fuse

    If the bike burns the 15A service fuse and you don't want to go crazy like me looking for the fault, check that the clutch position switch wires are not shorted ...

    Can you be more specific on the location of the clutch position wires? Are they running form the sensor off the clutch lever or off the engine? I am having my service fuse blow occasionally when I pull the clutch in (mine also uses a 10 AMP fuse).

    It's the switch on the clutch lever.

    If pins 1 and 2 are shorted, the service fuse blows while downshifting from 2nd to 1st gear

    That doesn't sound right. There must be more going on than simple short between the switch wires. The pins are effectively shorted together when you pull the clutch, which I do for downshifting between 2nd and 1st.

    Agreed, those wires get shorted together literal every time you pull the clutch in. I wonder is the OP has an intermittent short ground on one of the wires.

    I don't quite understand the wiring diagram ... shouldn't the safety system prevent the gearbox from operating with the clutch position switch closed (as if the motorcycle was running with the clutch lever pressed all the time)?

    No. As far as I can tell, it just stops you cranking the engine on the starter.

    in that case, you are both right; there must be a problem with my wiring ...
