Sorry to report a fail on the test ride.

The up shift works as planned but I lost the down shift.  I unplugged the relay and shifting is back to normal so I have some investigating to do.

The set function did not work either so don't try this at home (yet).

Got the set function sorted.  Had to recheck my notes from Prez.  Needed to connect the orange and yellow wires NOT brown and yellow.  Fixed and it functions.

Still looking at the up-shift.  Going to try a diode in line and I have a friend bringing over an oscilloscope so we can try to see what's happening.

So found that the down shift button sends 1.9v down the up shift green/blue wire, odd that.  Fancy CANBUS is smarter than I am. So the new plan is to use a comparator and a photo coupler to steal the signal to trip the on/off for the cruise control.
The comparator will block the 1.9v and the photo coupler will use the up-shift 5v to momentarily connect the brown and orange wires of the cruise control.

That's the plan.  But now I have to leave town for a week so the plan is on hold.

Of potential use to someone out there, I had to learn to clear a fault code.  Because of my voltmeter work with the down shift button, the check engine light came on.  So here's how you clear it:

1. Jump brown and green wire at the diagnostic plug using a paper clip.



2. Put the kill switch to “run”.
3. Turn on ignition (don't start).
4. Pull paper clip and reinsert within 5 seconds.
5. Watch confirmation blinks at engine light.
6. Turn off ignition.
7. Pull paper clip.

Bwahahaha!!!! It lives!!!   :007:

I can turn the cruise control on/off by tapping the up-shift paddle.

A friend built the signal-thief-circuit I needed to make my plan work. (I'll post a parts list later.)

 

It accepts the 5vdc signal sent when I pull the up-shift paddle and momentarily connects the brown and orange wires from the cruise control.

The subtlety of the circuit is that it blocks the 1.9vdc that the down-shift paddle sends to interrogate the same up-shift line. Because my circuit is grounded, without the “block”, the bike would not down shift manually. It thought the up shift was in constant use.

He cut up a waffer and put the components on small  enough area to mount into an automotive relay.







Using RTV, we sealed the components into the relay and installed.






End result: manual shifts work and up-shift triggers cruise control on/off.  :152:

 :031:. I took the first real ride, about 50 miles. I love the functionality!!! Having the up-shift trigger to on/off and the additional set button is very close to OEM ergonomics. Works like a champ!  :082:

Here's an updated schematic with Mouser part numbers included.  35,000 miles and still clocking.... :169:
