CLick for Rules for Roadside Assist Section

STRICT RULES & INFORMATION FOR THIS SECTION:

WARNING: This is not a general discussion section. This section is reserved expressly for post started by those people in need of IMMEDIATE breakdown assistance. Please do not START a thread in here unless you need assistance. Any registered user may RESPOND to a thread started by the person who needs assistance, but no banter please, keep this strictly on topic so valid communications can be easily referenced.

This is not an accident or injury response section. If you have had an accident and are injured, please call 000 for assistance.

If you need breakdown assistance support from a PSB volunteer, please do as follows:

1) Ensure you and your bike are in a safe location to prevent exposure to damage and personal injury. If you are injured and need medical assistance, contact 000.
2) Create a new post in this section with the subject titled “Help Wanted – Suburb”.
3) In the body of the post please put as much detail as you are able including but not limited to:

(a) A good description of your actual location including street name, direction, nearest cross street, or any other information that you feel would be of assistance for someone trying to find you.
(b) Details on what the issue and the kind of assistance you need. EG: “Bike broken down, both bike and I require movement to Victoria Park”.
(c) Provide details of where you and/or bike need transport to.
(d) Provide your mobile telephone number if available.

If you don’t have a phone that has internet access to make the above post then contact someone who does have internet access and they can create a post for you.

If you are able, continue to monitor this thread for updates and responses.

What will happen now:

1) When you create a thread in this section an email is sent to all regsitered PSB volunteers automatically. It will also be monitored by those using the forum at the time.
2) They will visit this thread for details, and if able to respond will make a post accordingly.
3) If you have provided your mobile number, the respondent will likely make contact with you to let you know they are on their way and provide an ETA.

NOTE: This is not an accident response thread, meaning to say, if you have had an accident and you are injured, please contact 000 and ask for an Ambulance. This section is to respond to non life threatening or injury situations.

For the avoidance of doubt (and stupidity) do not post in this section if you are wanting help moving your bike somewhere were it does not relate to assistance required for an immediate breakdown need.

If you have a bike trailer or other facilities that could assist PSB Members who have broken down, and would like to register as a PSB Assist member, please email deej@perthstreetbikes.com from the email address you would like on the register so that you can be added.

    Hey everyone. So was cruising along in 3rd and the engine light came on and the bike cut out and now wont start.

    I just filled it up with petrol but doubt that could be anything to do with it.

    Ive tried starting it in neutral and in gear. Turns over but wont fire. I have noticed that the power light on the power commmander isnt coming on with the ignition, could that be my problem. 2010 fz1n. thanks all forgot to mention that the engine light is still on and wont go off

      Try disconnecting the PC. Means lifting the tank to get to the connectors.

          Reflash the PC when you get an opportunity and see if it cooperates.

            Nice, I'd say that if the power light isn't coming on the PC has taken a dump or a fault in the wiring. See if it powers up using a USB cable.

                  Download the latest firmware from here

                  http://www.powercommander.com/powerc...x?ProdType=PCV

                  In the PCV software, Go to View > Device Information to see the current version. If you need to update the firmware, go to Power Commander Tools > Update Firmware.

                  Provided the device powers up and connects using the USB cable. If it doesn't then it is faulty.

                    Have a chat to Paul at Chain Reaction in Kewdale. He's full bore on power commanders.

                        Good and bad news. I plugged the PC into the laptop and it powers up and I did the firmware update (thanks BlueZR7) But the PC still wont power up when I turn the ignition on so I plugged the laptop back in to power it up and the bike will start. So the PC is not getting power from the bike, the wiring looks good so must be inside the unit?? I'll give that Paul guy a call.

                          Are you sure it has a good earth connection? Thats always a doosy that I've seen happen occasionally.

                            Yes, check the earth is tight and clean on the battery and look at the earth lead from the battery to the PC to make sure it isn't damaged or cut. If that is ok then the fault is either in the PC wiring loom or the PC itself. The fact that the bike runs with the PC disconnected confirms that everything on the motorbike works fine on that side. That's about all anybody can do, no need to throw money at mechanics, who will only do the same thing and loose half of your fairing clips and bolts in the process. As it is only a month old, should be fixed or replaced under warranty, if purchased locally

                              Yep, forgot to reconnect the PC earth lead on the track bike and it was very dead when I tried to start it at the track. Luckily someone did the old "should this lead be attached to something" as I was checking the fuses [emoji3]
