Re: Duel sport lights
But he's in New Zealand and I need these lights quick.
Any input on quality and looks? I'm going with black to match the forks and contrast the fender.How much wattage you get from your mc? I dislocated my shoulder and while I am recovering the bike gets an 18 rear rim at the dealer and they promised to measure the wattage. I don't want them to say anything stupid in order to buy the whole ec system... I have also bought an ufo led tail light and if the wattage is really low I will use an Acerbis dual spot halogen headlight with led mr16 spot lights (I tested one in full dark and it was pretty strong with white light). I need lights mainly to get approved for enduro races not for the street.,,,

Your shogun does come equipped with a voltage regulator to protect your headlight, you shouldn't tap off the ignition circuit or directly off the alternator just for the reasons you listed, plus it can affect these systems unpredictably. Can you tap off the hot side of your horn before the switch, or taillight? If you tap off your headlight it would only work either in the high or low. Of course for the negative (-) side, grounding it any place on the frame is fine. Give these spots a try. Take care and enjoy your ride.
Check you lighting fuse first then if it is good separate the two problems and identify if the brake light is what is coming on or the tail lite or both elements. When that is corrected move on to the headlight.
Hi Anonymous, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

Headlights and, starter motors require more amps (power) than the blinkers and, taillights so: jump your battery before you tear into the wiring If it still doesn't start or, light up I'll help you troubleshoot the wiring
I fixed it. The LED light needs a "load equalizer" to operate properly. Instructions said nothing of needing one. I combed the internet and found the answer. I responded to FixYa by e-mail "REPLY" and informed of the fix. Thanks for your help...I'll remember your site for future needs.
# Wear bright clothing. Those black leather jackets look good in the day, but for the night, you might want to consider wearing something that reflects light. Consider adding a fluorescent highlights on the back of your jacket, a smart message maybe. Your helmet is also a nice place for the same.
# Motorcycle Lighting: Good lighting is a crucial factor in your safety. In the quest for stylish lighting, many manufacturers use undersized brake lighting and most will aim the headlight lower to the street than the legal angle allows. Your first step is to examine your front and rear lighting. If you have a tiny brake light, consider replacing the light with a larger model. If this is not possible, J.C. Whitney sells a halogen brake lamp for about $10.00 that is 30% brighter than stock bulbs. You can also buy super bright LED lighting that is much brighter than the typical automotive bulb. However, this lighting should be purchased from a specialty company and not the "garden variety" LED arrays you can find at some stores for $15.00 or less. UltraBright LED's are expensive when using true Ultrabight LED (light emitting diodes). Expect to pay more if you want a truly bright LED system. Custom Dynamics is one such supplier of premium LED lighting.
# Check your headlight aiming angle. Check your state regulation on aiming. Raise the beam to the maximum angle allowed by your state. You can do this without special tools by uprighting your bike and casting the headlight on the wall of your garage. Measure from the ground to the exact center of your headlight, then adjust the beam projected on the wall (high beam). A rule of thumb is to drop 2" for every 10 feet (5 cm every 3 metres), but you should check with your state to conform with their regulations.
# Ride with your high beam on always during the day!
# Add dual running headlights to your motorcycle. Three properly aimed headlights are much more noticeable than a single headlight.
# Consider replacing your headlamp bulb with a super bright DOT approved model. Some bikers have been known to replace their headlight bulb with a non-DOT approved off-road lamp which is 40-50% brighter than the brightest legal lamp.
# Add reflective tape to your bike. You can also purchase reflective decals and add reflective flame decals to your helmet.
violet i have checked the ground at the headlight and it is good. I also get no power at the yellow wire coming from the stator i do get power from the white wire coming from the stator. If i disconnect the wires from the headlight i then get no power from the white wire off the stator. if i disconect the yellow wire from the stator i also get no power from the white off the stator all connections seem to be fine and the bike runs great. the bulb is good please help! thanks all.,It sounds like you may have lost the stator ground or one of the windings is open.
Measure the resistance from the yellow wire to ground and from the white wire to ground. Each winding should be less than 1 ohm to ground. You should also be able to measure resistance across the white and yellow leads. Here again, less than 1 ohm.
