Question about 2007 kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Nomad

1 Answer

Wiring i have a running light bar on the front. there was a set of small wires running from the headlight bucket to the power wires of the key harness under the speedo. I had cut those wires last fall thinking they were something else. without them everything ran fine but the running lights did not come on. I hooked the wires back up and the lights came on but when i hit the switch to turn them off it cut the power to the bike. when i hit the switch again the power came back. the switch did not do anything for the lights, it is supposed to turn them off and on. now the only way i have power to the bike is with those wires hooked up and and the switch turned on. any ideas??

Sounds like you have linked these up to ignition switch out feed to the kill switch/running curcuit rather than the lighting curcuit out from the ignition. most bike run 2 somtimes 3 curcuits out from the ignition switch one running curcuit and one lighting.

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

Upgrade headlights


Looking on eBay, or at local auto parts shops you can often find HID kits to suit your bikes globe size. They take a bit of wiring and need a bit of room to mount the ballasts, but they make a great deal of difference if you do a lot of riding at night.
The alternative, of course, is to get a small set of driving lights fitted. I friend of mine had a set of small LED light bars fitted to the front of his KLX450 above the headlight shroud. They aren't too large, and have a small on-off switch on the handlebars linked to the headlight wiring. Best part is LED lights draw less current, and create less heat than conventional globes!
Hope that helps!

Dodge pick up 1981 doesn't fire


At the positive battery post, you have a cable with a large and small wire. The large wire goes to the starter relay, the small goes to the fuse box and the key switch. The small wire has a fuseable link between the battery and fuse box.
Do you have power on that wire as it goes into the fuse box ? And are the fuses hot with the key on ?

Headlight relay switch for 2005 honda shadow 750


Inside the headlight housing is a blue wire with a white stripe. If there is a small straight single connector fopr this wire, cut it out and splice the wire together without it. If the headlight works leave it that way or replace the pull apart connector with any type of diconnect. This is on an 07 aero. Your wires might be different. Check your wire to and from your dimmer switch to make sure you have power going through the switch, if you do, then trace the wire to the headlight kill switch on the starter button. I had to disconnect my head light kill wires from my start button and hot wire them. The only problem there is your headlight will be on during crank. Hope this hlps.

Wiring problem; when i switch to full lights the engine shuts down


Not having a wiring diagram, I can say this sounds very much like a grounding problem to me. Try running ground wires to the headlight buckets,bulbs an Ignition module.

Also check the charging and bat situation as most solid state igs require a minimum of 9 vt.

Don't miss the key switch output.

Wondering if you might have an idea for me to try. my 98 gsxr750 head lights just quit working. the bulbs are good, same with the fuses.please help


Start by checking the starter button. It is a two function switch. It turns the headlight off and activates the solenoid. Try cleaning it , some disassembly may be required. If it is broken you may have to change the right switch assembly to fix the problem. If the button is good I would next start checking the wire connections for the handle bar switches , Normally located in the head light bucket or behind the headlight the problem could be as simple as a loose power wire.

I think your bike is being powered through the starter solenoid by a defective starter button. The starter button is on the right switch assembly and normally turns the headlight off when depressed halfway. A wire may be plugged in wrong in the headlight (Two wires are crossed). Take apart the right switch assembly and check for shorts and power from the solenoid ). Check the main wire harness to the handle bar switch for crossed wires (they are color coded).
