indeed.opcorn: this thread should get interesting. lol
see my explanation.hummmm wear out your starter first.... and keep the headlights in good shape... thats a fail man...... you are going to burn the starter out prematurely... just flash the headlights instead.
Usually, I ride with both on during the day. If I adjusted my highbeams lower, then i wouldnt have highbeams haha. also, see my explanationAsking for some electrical germlins to go in attack mode easier solution
Readjust the beam height of the high beam headlight to match low beam
than ride with both on at all times
what?I bump the starter to trip left turn signals all the time, never hurt a thing. The magnetic filed created by the motor trips the loop sensor that normal reads the car being there.
see my explanation.1) If your using the starter to turn your lights of your putting unnecesary strain on the starter motor aswell as the electics flicking on and off (do you think it is a healthy sound you get trying to start something already running!)
2) If you have HIDS turning them off and on again quickly is bad for not just the bulbs but the balast aswell
3) If you flash your lights there is a good chance some drivers will think you are waving them out!!
I feel like people would notice flashing lights easier then hearing the horn, and they see where the lights are coming from directly. cause otherwise they have to interpret where the horn is coming from, which might take up precious seconds if $hit is actually about to hit the fan.. I use the horn when I need to, obv.Id agree with the above, if i dont think people have seen me i get on the horn.
There it is...starter clutch
There it is...
Thou if I had HIDs fitted I wouldnt do what your doing. But each to their own.
SuuScbr; would you do it in a car?[/QUOTE said:I dont know of any cars that have starter clutches fitted.. Do you?
cagers look for cars when they turn, not bikes. If in a car id just flash the highbeams cause theyre a lot brighter then those on my bike, and there are two of them haha.
I dont know of any cars that have starter clutches fitted.. Do you?
I thought thats what you where getting at. No I wouldnt do that on a car.. But on the flip side.. if it was fitted with a "One Way Starter Clutch" I wouldnt think too much of it if it did happen.no my point was, would you turn the key while the car was running,
How do you do that ****?indeed.

The starter shouldn't wear out like you guys say it would, because there isn't the load of cranking the engine on the starter. The starter motor is, after all, just a motor... and the starter clutch wont be damaged because the engine rpm is significantly higher then the starter motor rpm (so its the same circumstance as when the engine is running and the starter is off). I haven't traced it through the wiring diagram, but it would make sense for the headlights and brake light to go off when the starter motor is running because those represent the second highest loads on the battery (other than the starter). The rest of the bike does not switch off when pressing the starter (dash stays on at least, and i don't think the computers shut off) because those circuits don't use enough power to warrant that. Perhaps it is bad for the bulbs and ballast.. but the last two times that I did this, the turning car jerked to a stop, avoiding a potential accident. Id rather they see me, cause if i'm moving at speed and they see me i doubt that they'd pull out in front of me.
