Hi Glen here from Quebec, QC, I have been riding my Silverwing FSC600 for three years now, I love it.
Recently however, I killed it electrically, via the accessory lighter plugin. Unfun moment of riding losing all power like that but I was at slow speeds in city. Parked it and towed it off for a more comfortable troubleshooting location. All fuses under seat are good, off comes the left side cover and trying to separate the main relay now without the excessive force bit but those release clips are in some tight spots. I was tempted to snoop to see if it was fused at the lighter plugin but I bailed out and I am sticking with the main relay idea for the 30Amp fuse.
Trouble-shooting In progress on a hot day.
Safe riding folks.
One day later,
For those who bet on the fuse 30 Amp main being the problem, good call. That fairing is very well built and loves its hardware assortment, so avoid that route unless it absolutely, positively needs to be removed.
Very good design on the positive and negative terminals at the main relay. This slightly off-set design gave me a second chance before I re-installed those terminals on the wrong polarity. I knew I should have marked one of them, but you know the clarity of hindsight right?
Well, it's up again and running, that is what counts.
