Bank angle sensor

Is there a way to bypass the bank angle sensor?

Is yours bad?
If so, you can probably find a good used one on eBay cheap.

As you're aware, it's there to kill the engine if bike is laid over.
Without it, the engine will continue to run if on its side, not only adding a danger due to spinning wheels and sprockets, but also no oil pickup for the engine.

there are three wires on the plug. connect the two outside wires on the plug and insulate the middle one.

My current bank angle sensor is bad. I allready have a used 1 ordered from ebay. I just want to bypass it until I get the 1 I ordered so I can continue diagnosing the electrical issues I am dealing with. As I stated in another thread, I purchased my rc cheap because it was a track bike that the po was trying to make a street bike again. Needless to say the electrical mods that were done for the track are very sketchy and the mods to bring it back even more so.

If I had not got this bike as a winter project, I would just purchase a used wiring harness.

I am learning alot about this bike through all of this, which will make me appreciate it even more once it's done. Not that the rc would ever need help being appreciated. All I can say is that this bike has more electronics on it than what I am used to working on and it's helping to bring my knowledge of bikes more up to date.

Thanks again for the help,
Heath

Let us know if this fixes the issue. And don't forget to have a nice cold one while you work on your bike, it's step #1 in the Honda manual

Maybe that's where I have been screwing up, I have been doing that as step 2, after what I tried as step 1 didn't work.

Little update, I tried to bypass the bas by jumpering the wrong 2 wires before getting the correct method here. That blew my ignition fuse, which I have now replaced. I now have both the fuel shutoff relay and bas relay working. The fuel pump didn't come on, I found that the fuel pump wasn't even plugged in. Instead the plug that should go to the pump was plugged into the engine speed sensor.The plug that should have went to the engine speed sensor was just laying in the tail section. I now have both plugged in correctly, but still have no spark.

Is there a way to test coils without a high voltage tester? I have a good fluke clamp meter, and it would be nice if it can be tested with it.
