Question about 1981 Yamaha XS 650 H
All the wiring from the ignition was tampered with & the starter button is missing. you were saying I could hardwire it through a fuse to the ignition. could you tell me more?
Sure mate. There is a cool mod you can do, where you are left with a fuseholder under the seat that bypasses all the safeties, wiring, kill switch, ignition switch and so on. You keep a blown fuse in it to make it all look good,and if you ever loose your keys, or you get a roadside failure in the ignition electrical system(common problem),pop a good into your "special" fuse holder, get the bike started with the kicker, and "limp home" so to speak. I will track down some info on the mod for you. It is also good for eliminating the electrics notorious for failure on these old girls. I will find a link for you to the mod. Just have to find it now. Did this to my own XS650... just in case but have never had to use it. Back shortly:)
