Hi all, purchased the new toy a few days ago... tested yesterday on pavement and trails after checking all fluid levels. We went about 20 miles and I definitely need to do some suspension adjustments. Researched last night on shocks and spring preload settings and adjusted today. there was no sag on front end, both compression and rebound were completely closed... no wonder why she was stiff and squirrelly. Rear had good sag (preload) but both compression and rebound were closed also. Readjusted compression and rebound on all shocks along with preload on front springs, also adjusted toe in. Went back out for a test drive and wow much better. Thanks for a great site. Haven't seen much info on electrical for the 1100 sport, looking for info on where to get full service/ technical manual for this rig. any help would be great... Thanks
First of all welcome glad you found us. If you will PM me your email address I will send you copies of what we have for the 800cc Reeper if you think you could use any of it. The files are to large to send on this forum. We don't have anything on the setup specs or repair for the differentials or transmissions. Just have motor and chassis and electrical diagram.
Sounds like you got a handle on the suspension tuning. They can be set up all over the place and an alignment should be first priority with these machines.
Still not seeing much on here for the 1100 sport. At least not in the way of issues which I guess that is good. If having an electrical issue might want to ask some of the electrical experts here. If just looking to fill the manual file for future reference I haven't seen an electrical layout for one yet, but would think it would be similar to the 800
Thanks Ken and Scott, any info would be great. I hope I messaged Ken correctly, new to forum pm, posts , ect. Here is a quick rundown of what is happening, Fuse #3 ECU BDO blows when hitting brakes with parking lights on... completely kills everything, no power almost like main fuse blew or battery disconnected. Its fun when your going 30 mph in the dark... no street lights up here and the moon wasn't out! I've tried searching online, but nothing has helped. I've also realized that first position on ignition does nothing... no accessories... lights or radio. position 2 Ignition dash lights, headlights, tail lights, ect. come on.. ignition power too. The start position works fine, unless fuse #3 is blown, then nothing. So, first thing I did was correct all fuses to match cover designation amperages...I think they had a run on 10 amp and 15 amp fuses. 20 amp and 30 amp fuses were not in mp3,cig. lighter, ignition, ect. stated on cover. I don't want to pull dash and steering apart without having a wiring diagram to review the possibilities. Yes it is in warranty, but its a 5 hr round trip to drop it off. Thanks again for your help.
One of the best tools to sort out electrical problems is a Power Probe III that you can get on Ebay for around $115 or less. They are very helpful and easy to use. The guys that do electrical for a living will not work with one.
I can see why the power probe is quicker, don't need jumper wires with multimeter setup. New tools can't hurt! Ken, As far as I Know all fuses were below specs in cover. I'm hoping something simple as a plug not connected for the ignition switch issue. Maybe a mislabeling of the fuse box? for the ECU OBD fuse location. Thanks for the wiring info, looks like a lot less fuses and relays in your version compared to mine. Scott the reaction is quicker than a beep from the meter. Lol
I found issue with no power to fuse #1 and also position 1 on ignition switch... pulled steering column apart and checked for power on terminals... (5 terminals on switch & 4 used) no power on terminal which r/y wire was on until in #2 position along with R wire having power in #2 position. wire was on wrong terminal! will check and see if it cures fuse #3 issue... will let you know what I find.
No such luck with fuse #3 issue (ecu bdo). Issue is headlights on high beam and hit brake lights will blow fuse. pulled fuse panel and checked complete wire harness for chaffing, none. nothing shorted in panel. fuse # 3 fine with just brake lights or high beam separately. Can't see in wiring schematics available how fuse #3 should have any ties with headlights and brakes.
I can only make an assumption and go from what you are explaining and describing to all of us, but its sounding more and more like you may have to pull the harness from under the dash and open it up and look for burned sections inside of it to get a true diagnoses of the problem. Do any of the fuse terminals have signs of heat, like discoloring on the back side of the fuse block?
When I had the fuse panel out I did pull all fuses and check from both sides to see if there was any burn signs or bluing from heat. None. I checked each wire in the first four or so inches before wire loom and all were clean and smooth, no blistering or discolorations. I have talked to dealer this morning and he is contacting Oreion to see if he can see if any updates or problems have been issued. If it comes to harness, I will have him fix it under warranty. Also have him checking on full service, shop, technical manual for me to buy. I can use the machine during the day with no issues, but at night with lights on... just no brakes! Lol I have installed a circuit breaker at 10A rating stated in fuse panel in case of an OH SH.T moment and need to use breaks with lights. At least I know at some point they will come back on.
Lugnut is pretty sharp on the wiring and should be able to at least help get you pointed in the right direction. You said the one plug was wrong, have to wonder if it wasn't a newbie on the line and got things crossed.
