Ok good luck finding a wiring diagram to do this! Also this i a very bad idea if you manage to bypass the fuse box as your bike will then become a fire risk if you have some sort of short while riding your low amp wires will melt which will then melt the higher amp wires and add a bit of heat and oxygen and you have yourself one burning GPZ 1000

Im still looking for the fuel pump on my 2005 yamaha roadstar silverado, and fuse if any !

Here are diagrams of the 2005 Yamaha Road Star fuel systems.
First, select your Silverado in the box that says All Trim Levels.

Your 2005 Yamaha ROAD STAR revs your heart Genuine Fuel System parts from...

Once you're done with that, go back on your internet browser and in the box that says Fuel System, click that drop down and select Electrical System, unfortunately, I don't see any fuses in electrical system diagrams, the pump should be part of the electrical system, but I don't see that either in the electrical system diagrams.

Where is the fuse box?

Hi Showercapban, 1998 and later Sportster models circuit breaker and fuses were located in an electrical bracket behind the starter relay and data link that was mounted behind the left side panel. 1997 and earlier circuit breakers only no fuses were located under the seat and for a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.Harley Davidson Wiring Diagrams and Schematics

Sounds like you have a short in the electrical system possibly around your fuze box. Best thing to do is to just pull off all your plastics and trace the electrical system, looking for exposed wires or damaged wires.

The Low beam headlights don't work when u turn on key like they did. but the High work. any suggestions... I need to find a wiring diagram, but it may be a simple issue or not???

While it may be possible that it's a wiring fault, unless you have done something that you think might have disturbed the wiring, this is pretty unlikely.

It's entirely possible that your low beam bulb has blown. Even if you have 2 bulbs, it's not uncommon that as the bulb faults out, it takes out a fuse as it fails, so you would do well to check the fuse box and see if all your fuses are intact. I'm not familiar with this particular bike, but yamaha fuses are usually in the side pannel on the opposite side to the battery in a rubber housing about 2 inches long and an inch wide. (There is usually a single main fuse near the battery, but if this had gone, it would probably have killed most of the electrics on the bike).

Check fuses (Hopefully, the cover of the fuse box has a list of which fuse does what, but there will only be about 6 fuses, so check all of them. Yamaha also have a lovely habit of listing the fuses in the top of the cover on the fuse box, but just to confuse the issue, the list is upside down in relation to the way the fuses run!). You will also find that there are usually 3 spare fuses in the box that you can swap out for a dead one.

Having checked the fuses, PARTICULARLY if you find a blown one, take out the bulbs before you turn the bike on again and check them too. On occasion, a bulb will short out as it fails, blowing the fuse. You swap the fuse, switch the bike on and the defective bulb takes the fuse out again!
Take each of the bulbs out and put them across a battery or a battery charger to test them.

If all the above doesn't get you anywhere, then, and only then, start looking for a wiring problem.

You will find loads of R6 manuals (With wiring diagrams) for various years here if you do need to investigate further:

I'm trying to find a full manual for my inherited 2006 Brutale F4 910 including taillight wiring diagrams. My best friend passed away and left me the bike, he changed the rear indicators for an...

Oh wow, a Brutale...sorry to hear about the passing of your friend...
These bikes are not something you see everyday, 140 horsepower and they look like a 600 in size..i have only seen a few in my life. You might try contacting MV Augusta Motorcycle company for manuals and technical data...i know no one around that has any...The bike will still start and run, the burnt wires didnt effect the engine control box, right? Turn signals are no problem to install and wire. Here is a link i found that has a lot on it...hope you can read Italian... lol.
Good luck with the beast.

We have no power. No lights or anything. tryed the battery that is good. Checked all fuses they are good. checked the spark plugs and they also are good. what could it be?

No power to anything on the bike means that the primary power circuit is not complete. On older bikes, especially ones stored outside for any length of time, the most common culprits are the ground wire and the main lead to the circuit box. A more distant possibility is a bad ignition switch.

Check the ground first, as it's easy. Follow the heavy cable from the negative lead of your battery down to wherever it bolts to the frame. See any rust or corrosion, either where the cable attaches to the battery or where it attaches to the frame? A bad ground can cause total electrical system failure, as well as all kinds of intermittent problems, and it's simple to fix--unbolt the cable, brush/sand off the corrosion, and re-attach. See if that makes any difference.

If your ground looks good, the next most likely place to check is the line from the positive battery terminal to the fuse box. Disconnect both the positive and negative leads of your battery, and use a meter or continuity tester to touch where the positive battery terminal would connect and to the main fuse in the fuse box. You should see continuity. If you don't, try a few other fuses. If you don't see continuity on any of them, turn the ignition switch to the "on" position and check again, just in case the main electrical feed goes through the ignition switch before hitting the fuse box (most bikes I've serviced are not wired this way). If you don't find continuity, start tracing back from the fuse box to the positive battery terminal. You may find an inline main fuse outside the fuse box that's gone bad, or a fusible link that's gone open. In addition, particularly on vintage Yamaha motorcycles, the fuse box junction itself was prone to corrosion, so the wire would be fine all the way up to the fusebox, where electricity would then hit resistance.

If all this checks out, try testing the ignition switch. Usually, the switch can be disconnected via a (somewhat awkward to reach) connector, giving you a handful of unlabeled leads to test. Turn the switch to the "on" position, and use the continuity meter to test that a complete circuit is being made between some or all of the wires. Typically, one wire will be black (the ground), so clip a lead to that and test the other wires in this bundle in relation to that one. At least some of them should show continuity when the ignition switch is turned on. None of them should show continuity when the switch is turned off. Honda ignition switches are usually very reliable, though, so I consider this a less likely cause for your symptoms than a fault in your primary electrical wiring.

Good luck!

Electrical wireing harnes pinched or short circut blown out 30 amp fuse way out there for this problem big time safety issue kills power to bike

Yes, I've seen complete meltdowns of the entire wiring harnesses before. You're lucky you just blew a fuse. Now you've been given a warning that something is wrong and that you need to locate the problem. I've seen some older bikes that didn't have a fuse or circuit breaker in the wiring harness actually catch on fire because of a short.

Now, depending on what make and model of your bike is, determnes where you need to look. I work mostly on Harley's as that's what I've been working with since 1966. I find Harley's simplier to work on as they don't change as often as the Japanese bikes do. If your bike has a fuse box and it's not blowing any fuses other than the main fuse, the problem is most likely between the battery and that main fuse box. You really need to find a schematic of the wiring on your bike. Good Luck!
