Question about 2004 Enfield Bullet 500
Having trouble with the electric start-unless the battery is totally up to charge
I get no power to the starting solenoid. All the switches tested good tests good all the way up to the blue bosch multilink in the left hand container on the side. My dealer suggests I cut and splice the 2 red wires together and bypass the multilink. Anybody heard of this--oh yeah the bike runs perfect in every other respect. Just seems a little bit crazy splicing the only hot wire to the starting loop..,You could try putting a multimeter, set on its 0-20 volts range, across the multilink when it is under starting load (use whatever each side of it links to as connection points for the meter). If the connector (and wiring) were perfect you would see no volts developed across it. If it has deteriorated then some of the volts that you would want to see developed across the starter solenoid will drop across the duff connector instead. It may even warm up a little. It should clean up though, and you can keep it good with contact grease of some sort. I did similar with with the connections and wiring runs to my ignition coil and found that I was dropping 2 volts, of the 12.5 available, in the wiring harness.,,,
