Great shot, I like the way you see just the bikes, the cars have come and gone.

Electrical Tech Question For 955 Daytona Folks

I recently picked up a '01 955 Daytona that was a write-off with the intention of using it as a track mule. The worst part of the damage was the loss of the entire dash. The cracked-open ignition switch ain't no fun either, but it's a simple fix with a toggle switch or two.

I don't particularly need the instruments for what I do on track. But I'm wondering if the ECU Malfunction Warning Light on the dash is necessary to keep the ECU from going into "limp home" mode as the owners manual calls it. Once I get a wiring diagram I can fab my own little panel with the required idiot lights. But in the meantime, I'm curious about the missing ECU warning light and if its needed to complete the ECU circuits for normal function.

Does anyone know for sure on this one?

A buddy of mine runs his Daytona 955 without the instrument cluster. No problems.

A shop I used to work for sponsored a WERA/CMRA endurance team with a 955 Daytona back in '98/'99. They didn't run an instrument cluster, either.

Thanks Rocker. If you get the chance to ask your buddy if he's done anything other than unplug the connectors (as in having to add any jumper wires anywhere), I'd appreciate it if you could pass it on to me via PM.

Looking at your former screen identity, did we ever pit next to each other on the upper level at Barber a few years back? I would have been on a yellow Monster 900. The small group I'm thinking of had a red Monster in it that got slightly wadded up before the weekend was over.

Yes. That was us. Brian low-sided his Monster in turn 15 attempting an outside pass on a 916. That can be a tricky turn, but I think the BT-020 tires were the culprit. He's running Pilot Power 2CT now.

Here I am on my Sport 1100 in turn 15:


That was October 2004. Man I love that track !!!

My buddy with the Daytona just has a plug hanging where the instrument pod should be. I'll have to contact him and ask if he did anything special. I'm 99% sure he didn't... I'll let you know...

Cool. I thought that was you. Yep, Barber is a great track. I didn't make it up there or to TGPR at all last season. Thanks in advance for checking with your friend on the dash issue. I've read a couple of things that indicate it doesn't affect the performance. But more corroboration never hurts.

It was bittersweet because the big DNF'd but the good news is that before then McCoy on the 675 was competitive (I think he got as high as 5th I read). Considering how much more development the Japanese bikes have had I thought they had a decent showing.

The highest finishing was Ivan Clementi at 12th.

New Bonneville

Jodie's Bonneville arrived, one happy lady... she loves it. She has been humming and hawing over whether she should sell her Ninja, but said after 5 minutes on the Bonneville, sell the Ninja! :-)

Very nice. I'm sure she'll enjoy it. Was great meeting you at the show.

P.S. My Ninja was quite pleased with the new parts.

Glad they worked out, and yes she's already enjoying it. Got out for a short ride and it's a keeper. :-)

I've been riding my Bonnie every day since I went through MSF a couple of weeks back. Rain, cold, doesn't matter. Though I wish my waterproof clothes actually were waterproof (too much to ask?). The Bonneville is handling the crazy weather fine so far. Although it is so light that it got tossed about on the superslab today when we had 40-50+ MPH wind gusts.

I love this bike more & more every day. As I get more and more accustomed to riding in all sorts of conditions, various road conditions, etc. I'll venture further from home.
