Premium Member builderbob Posted March 25, 2016 Premium Member Share Posted March 25, 2016 I'm going to use this thread to post my findings from poking around the Super Tenere switch block, which, as most know, is visually identical to ours except for the cruise buttons. I, like others, would like to use this stock-looking, well integrated switch block with our new cruise control systems offered by Cruizin. As no-one has made any information available as to what might be involved in this mod, I've made it my mission to pull the covers off this mystery and make my findings available to the board. To this end, I have purchased and received a 2015 Super Tenere left switch block. So that my FJ wouldn't be out of commission while investigating the wiring of both switch blocks, I also purchased a new 2015 FJ-09 switch block. More on what my eventual plans are for the extra FJ block later. Out of the box, the first difference you'll notice is that the plugs at the ends of the harnesses are different. You would expect this because of the Tenere's additional functions, however, they're not just different, they're really different! While the FJ harness has a clutch switch wire, the Tenere does not. Finally, the Tenere's harness is actually longer than the FJ's, so no worries about it not being long enough. The differences don't end there, sadly. You might expect that Yamaha wouldn't have time to dream up new wire color-coding for every model. In fact, it might be useful to have some similarities. But, no. That would be way to easy! Let's make them completely different! And they are. I have the electrical diagram for the FJ, which was very helpful when I did the Rostra Cruise installation, and it does a pretty good job of identifying the circuits and wire colors of most systems on the bike, including the switch block. What I don't have, and have so far been unable to get, is the one for the Tenere. I've put out some feelers on other sites that may bear fruit. I'll just have to wait for a response. But I'm not going to wait to get started. Turns out I might not need that Tenere diagram. A couple of hours poking around with my multi-meter has identified the functions of all of the wires on the Tenere switch. See my diagrams for the 2 multi-pin Tenere plugs below. I will do the same with the FJ block for comparison. The object being that I will graft the FJ plugs to the Tenere's harness and provide an interface for Cruizin's system that will mate with the Tenere block as well. http://soundquarters.com/FJ-09/Cruise/S10%201.jpg http://soundquarters.com/FJ-09/Cruise/S10%202.jpg More later!
