You can feel them when they activate they will click. Otherwise get a volt meter. T

you need to be able to read and understand the schematic on the relay and then you can apply and remove power to make sure the relay is opening and closing as power is applied and removed ..

There should be several (probably 5) contacts on it. Just connect a battery (9v should work) to the 2 that appear to be separate from the rest of them. You should hear a click. If it clicks, it's good. You could hook up a meter to measure resistance to make sure the switching mechanism works when activated.

05 600RR - BLACK :-)
06 'Busa Ltd - White (sold)
04 R1 Shift Red - (sold)
03 R6 Blue - (sold)

9 volt wont always work. If the relay is 12volt then it will usually require that much or more to open or close the circuit

apply power to the pos and neg terminals on the relay and test for continuity between the other two.

Trip, i know you know better than that... just cuz they click doesn't mean they work...
