How Do You Change Tail Light Bulb
Remove the wiring harness from the tail light lens assembly. Disconnect tail light bulb from the wiring harness socket. Reconnect the wiring harness to the tail light lens assembly. To confirm proper installation of the new tail light bulb, place the key in the on position.
IT IS VERY SIMPLE OR GO TO AUTOZONE AND HAVE THEM CHANGE IT OUT FOR YOU AND WATCH THEM ONCE. GOOD LUCK.

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!

Driverside tail light goes out when hit the brakes and turnsignal fuse keeps blowing out everytime i try to use it. so i have no turnsignal or back up lights because the fuse keeps blowing even if i use...


Two more possible places to look:
I have seen similar problem because of dirt and moisture accumulation in the trailer hitch wiring plug, Does your truck have a tailer hitch? I so, inspect under the wiring plug cover and clean with electric contact cleaner. Also, inspect where the plug wiring harness connect to the taillight/stop light harnesses for broken/exposed wiring that may be shorting out the fuse. This problem is usually seen only in after market installed wiring.
The second place that might have a short is in the turn signal switch on the steering column. The steering wheel and upper column would have to be disassembled to make repair. The wiring could be checked from below dash by removing the steering column wiring harness plug and checking qwirs with a ohm meter for closed short. It is a tedious task.

My o3 navigators adjustable brakes will only move about 1/2 inch either direction. It's fine if they don't work but is there any way to move them to the farthest position manually?


With both tail light lenses removed locate the black with yellow wires and the dark green with brown wires coming out of the brake/tail/turn signal sockets.

The black with yellow wire will be the running lights or tail lights and the brown wire from the trailer harness will attach to it.

The green wire on the trailer harness will be the right turn signal and will be attached to the passenger side tail light harness dark green with brown wire.

The yellow wire on the trailer harness will be the left turn signal and will be attatched to the dark green with brown wire on the drivers side tail light harness.

The white wire on the trailer harness is the ground wire and will need to be attached to a good ground. Is it pretty easy to crimp an eyelet onto the end of the wire and use a self tapping screw to attach it to the body behind one of the tail light lenses.

Here is a trailer light/wiring article I have done in the past. It has a couple of good tips you may find useful.

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
