I think the safety of the rider could be improved if the mirror turn
signal lights were also running lights. Most bikes have the yellows
lit, why not the Burger?

I agree.

I think you should re-post your comment in the "Feedback for Suzuki" thread. Maybe they'll correct this fault in a future model.

This is what I have done for my AN650 mirror turn signal. Replace the original turn signal light bulb mount by the brake light bulb mount (with the brake light bulb of course). Now u have 3 wires instead of 2 from the turn signal light bulb mount. Find out which wire is for the running light, then connect this live wire and the earth wire to the corresponding wires of head light, so that whenever the head light is turned on, the running light of the mirror turn signal light is lit too. Then connect the rest live wire of the modified mirror turn signal light to the live wire of the original turn signal source. This simple DIY works very well, I have it running for over 6 months without any problem (even with my electric fold mirrors). But before you do the same, please make sure your country's regulation allow such modification.

One thing I need to remind. Please make sure the wires are connected properly, otherwise the mis-connection can blow out the turn signal fuss, which will disable the AN650's electric system.

Yes, we recently learned about this in the "Big Problem (Not really)" thread. A blown turn signal fuse resulted in an inability to start his AN650K. The headlights came on, but the dash instrumetns didn't come up (except for the clock) and the bike wouldn't run.

One problem with our highly computerized technological marvels is that many systems that seem unrelated are actually interconnected.

Electric fold mirrors?!! Cool! 8)

Is this a Suzuki option they don't offer us here in the States, or is it something you developed on your own?

Electric folding mirrors is a European option, not USA. Why you ask? Who da' heck knows! Perhaps for the same reason that Suzuki had a great cruise control, self canceling turn signals, and many more comfort items available back in 86 when I bought my Cavalcade, but seems to have forgotten the technology over the years. I would gladly give up the "Pass" high beam button in favor of self cancelling turn signals. I can easily flip the high/low beam switch for passing, and would gladly trade this button for something else.

In the motor escort version I'm dreaming up, the "Flash-to-Pass" button would become the radio PTT switch, the "Drive/Manual" button would become the PA PTT switch, and the "Shift Up" and "Shift Down" buttons would become the siren and emergency lights relay switches.

Also, the side-stand switch would cut off the siren but leave the engine running and all lights working.

What I did was replace the front turn signal sockets with a set of rear break running lights socket, ran a wire from the rear to the front and add a switch so I can turn them on at night and off at day. This was easy except trying to get the wire into the side mirrors and had to take them off to get the wire through.

Fuses

I had a mid 90s Ford truck that if the map light fuse blew, you lost
the electronic transmittion. (It wouldn't shift)

I think it would pay to have extra fuses around.

To Brian:
The electric folding mirror kit is from Suzuki, the kit includes a pair of electric folding mirrors, left control unit which replacing the original one with a blue button on the top of the control unit for folding and unfolding the mirrors. The electronic folding mirror is one of the standard features for the Executive AN650 version. Pls visit this link to see the pic http://www.sbs-technology.com/index01.htm?. The electronic folding mirror is very useful in my everyday use as HK allows lane splitting, and the traffic is always heavy in here.

Unfortunately my system will read English and Japanese, but not Chinese (I'm running low on disk space, so I won't add more languages until I get a new computer). Still, most of the site was readable; thanks for the link.

That would be a very handy feature to have around here for pulling into tight parking stalls in garages, etc. I currently just stop the bike and reach down to pull them in by hand, but electric folders would be better -- plus they're just cool. 8)

I wonder if they'll be made available here.

Changing passing light switch to PPT

Yes you can change the flash to pass switch to a PTT. I changed the wifes
over last week now I have to do it again to her new Bergman 650 because
she is taking the new one and I get her old one she wanted the blue so I
get her silver one. I have also made other changes and have other things
to try.
