Question about 1995 Yamaha FZR 600
My 94/95 FZR 600 stopped working last week. I accidentally put it in gear with the kick stand down. Instant death. I did discover the battery got down too low, no biggie. I got a new battery and replaced a 30amp fuse that I found blown (far left hanger next to 3en-81950 relay and the turn signal relays on left side). The problem I have now is the high beams and horn do not work. Is there a separate relay for them? Any ideas?
Just so we are clear... The bike died (like it should) when then the kickstand went down while it was in gear and you have not been able to start it since. It's interesting that it happened when the kick stand cut off switch got continuity. I would say that it would be worth while to check that circuit including anything else on it for a short, open, or grounded scenario. There is another small fuse box under the seat on the other side of the bike that has 4 or 5 fuses in it as well and there is a HeadLight fuse in there that may have went with the 30 Amp main fuse. You may want to check that.
I would recommend downloading the FZR Manual from http://www.fzrarchives.com/online_manuals.html Section 8 in here can help you diagnose the Electrical system on the FZR this manual even though for a 99' will still be correct for your bike since they are pretty much the same between 89-99
On a side note.. anytime I start blowing fuses for a somewhat seemingly random reason I get a little suspicious of the Voltage Regulator / Rectifier this is a common failure component for the FZR due to overheating and other issues. I have lost a couple of them over the years now and I have not done the Upgrade but the site above mentions a method to upgrade yours to a better one as well as how to swap it out for a new if you find this to be the issue. Dimming / Flashing headlights or other lights can also be a sign of a regulator on it's way out.. the bike will continue to run for a while on a bad regulator I find but it is not recommended as it will not be properly controlling the voltages in your electrical system and it can take a few things with it. If you run a regulator that is letting out higher voltages for too long it will most definately fry your battery causing the lead plates to become to pitted from the increased voltages used to charge it for it to be efficient.. So, if you recently replaced a Regulator / Rectifer you may need to look towards the battery soon.
Good Luck and Happy DIY'ing

Have you taken a look at the switch? I'm a Harley Guy, the Horn and High beam switch are located on the same bank so a clean with a bit 'O' WD might do the trick?? did for me.
