How do i remove rear turn signals on 2009 street bob?


If you need to remove the tail lite, brake lite and signal light harness start by removing the seat. Then disconnect the negative battery cable. Then detach the rear electrical harness connector. Then locate and follow the wires for the taillight and signal lights to the connector (8 pin) under the seat area and separate the connector. Then cut the cable tie strap holding the wiring harness to the frame and pull the harness through the fender opening. Then follow the conduit/harness back to the fender hole where the wiring exits the fender underside and enters the tail lite housing and backplate. This is not necessary for removal of the tail/brake lite assembly or the signal lie assemblies.

If you want to remove the tail/brake lite assembly remove the tail light lens and the with a small screwdriver depress the small tang in the tail lite four wire Multilock connector and remove the tail lite and then do the same and release the two wire signal light connectors one at a time from the tail lite base and remove the signal light connectors. These smaller two wire Multilock connectors are on the left and right sides of the base plate in the centre portions of the base plate where the 4 wire tail lite connector on the left side of the base plate is located and the wiring harness connector of the wires from the front of the bike to the base plate on the right side. The wires from the left and right signal lite assemblies go from these connection points on the base plate out through each side of the base plate and into the area under the back of the rear fender to each signal lite assembly. Then similarly release the Multilock connector of the harness from under the seat to the tail lite base. When you have disconnected the connectors from the base plate and have routed the wire harnesses out into the area under the fender you can release them from the wire clips at each side of the under fender areas. Then for each side remove the lamp support by unscrewing and removing the fastener and washer inside the rear fender, after which the lamp housing can be removed from the lamp support by pulling it and the wiring you disconnected from the tail lite base out through the lamp support. If you wish to release/remove the tail lite base undo the fastener and remove it.

How do i replace the ignition switch on a honda cb 350f


If this switch is located down on the left side, all you should need to do is trace your wiring and unplug the pig tail from the main harness. Remove the keys, undo and remove the round locking ring from the uppermost section then pull it out from the back.
You can tell the lock ring, by the slots in it.

I have a 1972 Yamaha 650XS Special. I am wondering if you can cut the gas valve off the tank to move it so it doesnt hit the top of the engine anymore


By gas valve, you mean the fuel petcock? That should just unscrew right from the tank. However, you'd then need to weld in a new drain port at a low portion of the tank where you could re-attach it. It's a big, annoying job, as the current petcock location is designed to permit the maximum amount of gas to drain out of the tank. Plus, not every welder will agree to work on a gas tank, even if it's been boiled out to minimize the risk of residual gas vapor.

On the other hand, it's also possible that you don't have a correct tank for your motorcycle frame. In 1972, Yamaha sold an XS650, but not an XS650 Special. The "special" series didn't start until, if I remember correctly, 1979. So, it's possible that the original tank for your bike was replaced or upgraded at some point in its life. "Special" and standard XS650 tanks have noticeably different shapes. I have worked on a variety of XS650s, and I've never seen the fuel petcock physically touch the engine at any point, even when going over big bumps and chuckholes. Luckily, if this turns out to be the problem, XS650 tanks are relatively plentiful, for bikes of that vintage.

If you are pretty certain that you do have the correct tank for your year Yamaha, I would double-check the condition of the rubber mounting buttons on which the tank rests. These harden and crumble over time. Without the rubber shock-absorbing buttons, the tank is resting directly on the metal supports. This will lower the tank but a good .5-1.5" from where it should be resting. I can see how this could cause interference with the fuel petcock and the engine.

Good luck figuring out if there's an easier fix for your tank issue!

The tail light and brake light don't work. the bulb looks fine and the tour pack light lights and turn signal lights work.


The wiring sub-harness for the tail light assembly could have come unplugged, It usually plugs into the main harness under the seat or down beside the forward part of the rear fender. Also the wires could have been damaged under the fender back behind the tail light assembly.

Good Luck

How do i wire a sidecar to a 2003 fatboy


The only thing there is to wire is a tail light and a stop light. tap into the wires running under your rear fender going to the tail light assembly. Turn on the switch, and test the two wires. One will be hot, this should be the tail light. Go to the other wire, it should be "cold", step on the brake pedal and it goes hot. This is the brake light wire. Use those crimp on splicers like they use to wire trailers on cars with. Put the splicers on the sub harness going to the tail light not the main harness. That way, if the wire is damaged, you can buy a sub harness much cheaper than a main harness and it's a LOT easier to put on.

Good Luck
Steve

I am rebuilding a 1972 yamaha xs2, the forks are rusted and need replacing. Can you tell me what size the tubes are?


Hi there.
The 72 XS650 uses 34mm OD fork tubes. You can easily get replacements from MikesXS for US$129 a set. They have all of the parts you may need to overhaul the forks. The OEM part number for these is . # 306-23124-60-00

Lights are incredibly dim.


You have a bad ground in the circuit. Go thru the wiring harness and find the bad ground. Remember, a loose male to female connection can be the ground problem, not just a rusted ground wire.
