May be you can see, whether the Charging is reverse. Means, Instead of Charging the battery sometime due to malfunctioning, the power is used appropriately. Therefore whn u on ur headlight, the power is turned fully to Headlight N Bike gives misfiring.

Hi,
I've not done much work on the Indian Enfield, more on Bsa's/Triumphs etc., However it appears that your charging system may be faulty?
When running can you meter the current to the battery? if 12ish on tickover and up to 13.8/14.5 when revved fine, try popping the side lights on if voltage drops drastically and doesn't improved with increased engine rev's then alternator problem or regulator?
Finally could there be a possible short circuit on the headlight? have you removed the lamp from the surround and looked at the switches rear? make a close inspection of the bulb filliament sometimes they fuse both main and dip beam together causing all sorts of grief.
Hope this helped,

Ignition switch on, bike runs, no running lights. Signals, horn, and brake light work.


If you think it might be the switch, you could squirt switch cleaner into the key slot and work it. Have you checked for fuses under the seat, tank or behind the headlight?

Where is the headlamp switch located on a 2002 HD Ultra Classic?


Unless you have something "custom" on your bike, the "HI/LO" switch is on the right handlebar switch housing. The main ignition switch turns on the headlights. From the factory, when you turn the ignition switch on, the headlight automatically comes on as most states require motorcycles to have their headlight on at all times when on the road. Now, some riders modify the wiring so that they can start the engine without the headlights on thinking the additional current will start the engine better. Once started, they will turn the switch one more click clockwise for the lights. I think the late models have an extra click before it goes to the "accessory" posititons. The older ones do anyway. I'm pretty sure the later models are the same way but I can't say that for certain as my expertise goes up though the '90's models. I do not work on the twin cam powered bikes.

Good Luck
Steve

Electrical problem , bike starts when full lights are on, turn lights off and bike dies, bike will run with reg/rec removed, what is the wiring problem and where do i start to look, what can i eleminate ,...


Are you certain you are not turning off the emergency shut off switch usually found on the right hand side of the handlebar thinking it is the headlight switch, are you? You don't mention the model nor year.

If you are in the US market of have a US market bike, many late model US market motorcycles don't have switches for headlights as headlights are required to be on if the motor is runnning.

I hope this is your trouble ...

2005 Honda Goldwing- Electrical issue. Bright


sounds like a wire has been added the wrong way or wires have damage, switch could be the culprit. Does the kill switch work? I would be checking all wires and the conectors for heat damage (melting).And fuses for all circuts. if low beam is used does key work to stop engine?

After starting my Roadstar in neutral, as soon as I put it in gear, it dies. It reacts to the shift, not the clutch. Is it electrical? Mechanical? I need help troubleshooting. thanks.


With the engine off, put it in gear and pull the clutch lever. If the bike rocks freely back and forth, the clutch is releasing correctly and eliminates mechanical problems. The only possible electrical problem would be a wiring fault involving a gear position indicator (if the bike has such a thing). If it does have such an indicator, find the switch (on either side of the transmission case) and disconnect the wiring (plug?) Try the bike again. If it now keeps running, I'd suspect some form of cross wiring short within the wiring harness. If it does not run at all, then the bike probably won't start and run except in neutral--hook up the switch again. Did this problem start suddenly, or after a repair of some sort???

Headlight wont light


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Depending on the version, normally there would be two (2) relays for most Kawasakis that control the headlight(s). Often the hi-lo relays (with white connectors) would be behind the gauges. Again depending on the model, some would not have a headlight on/park/off but only hi-lo as the headlights automatically switch on when the engine is running.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Starting my bike


Hi,

On most bikes including Kawasakis, the starter button would be on the right side of the handle bar on the throttle grip assembly. It would be right below the headlight switch. Above the headlight switch would be a switch that must be set to RUN, this is the engine kill switch.

If the above still fails to crank/start the bike, then the following would have to be checked:
  • battery and battery cables;
  • starting relay;
  • starter motor.
If the engine will crank but will not engage/run, then you need to check for:
  • spark at the plugs;
  • fuel as supplied by the carbs.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
