4x4- No Power?

filthyredneck08brute2010-08-10 19:40:57 +0000 #1
Ok my "no power to the starter solenoid prob is fixed"


4x4 question-we had another 08 750 there to swap computer & etc and cant get my 4x4 to work with my parts or the other bike. On my bike the switch is basically dead, we unplugged the actuator on front diff of the other bike and the 2x4/4x4 light started flashing....unplugged mine and it never changed from 2wd on the display. It WILL NOT engage into 4x4 regardless of what I try. I know my connectors are good at the fuse box/KEBC/front diff and several others that I dielectric greased (and even disassembled the front diff actuator, cleaned/greased and put back together..... are there by any chance any relays for the 4x4 or anything else I can check that may be keeping power from making it where it needs to be? (I already removed/cleaned KEBC and its working)

Sorry I can't help cause I really have no clue but Ive seen KEBC several times.. what does it mean?

I know you've already checked it but it sure sounds like a power supply problem to the actuator controller.

I'll unplug and re-check it, but its making all its normal lil funny noises and was spinning the way it was suppost to the other day when I had off of the cover. Wheres the next place to check? I just dont understand where the front diff actuator actually recieves power from....

It gets it's power from the actuator controller under the seat. Back to basics though. The machine has to roll slightly before the 4WD will engage. Just sitting still it may or may not go into 4WD.

PS, several sets of magnets will be in the mail tomorrow or Monday. LOOOOOONG story.

I was at meangreen360's house most of the afternoon yesterday and we couldnt figure it out... I put it in and out of 4x4 several times while riding up and down the street in front of his house and it never even tried...stay 2wd the entire time. I'll continue checking wires for corrosion and such...had to fix all 8 wires under the fuse box.

Thanks for the magnets...lol im kinda eager to here this story (PM me if you want to share)

Something else that's simple to check is the continuity of the selector switch. Since it's only two wires, it's either open or closed. Closed is 2WD, open is 4WD.

Do you have a wiring diagram?
filthyredneck08brute2010-08-10 20:13:40 +0000 #8
No I sure dont....I need to become a subscribing member so I get all that stuff, but its just the lil two prong connector with the white/red wires correct?
IBBruin2010-08-10 20:37:57 +0000 #9
Not sure of the wire colors but yep, it's the two prong connector probably located inside the pod. You can actually unplug the connector and it's the same thing as switching it into 4WD (open connection)

Ok, well I was talking about the two prong under the seat that goes to the KEBC i believe. But I'll forget about that one.... two prong under the pod, I'll go outside and try this in a few mins. Thanks

Ok traced the wires coming from the switch, found the connector unplugged it (it was clean inside) and made a lap around the yard. It still wont try to engage in 4x4 and the display still reads 2wd. Is it possible that my CDI is going bad...my bike also doesnt want to idle. I got to thinkin about yesterday when we swapped CDIs and then plugged mine back in my bike wouldnt start cuz the CDI wasnt plugged all the way together due to a bunch of sand which means the other one wasnt plugged in either.
