Start with the headlight off first screw under light on chrome trim. then pry it off. unfasten the screws holding light on about 7 screws, then unplug light. their is a chrome piece on the top of light chrome has a nut holding it on take nut off then lift that piece off. pop the piece of plastic off the key hole it prys off two screws under it remove them. that piece of chrom has a screw in it in front of handlebars you uncovered it when you took that chrome cover piece off. JUST loosen it. Now im sure you took off your windshield before you started so now remove your bolts that hold on the quick release windshield on both sides. Your chrome nacell will now split apart to show your 4 bolds that lock down your handle bar. See I told you 1 in job but hr to take off the samn chrome. When you put that ling cover piece of chrome back on ..NOT To TiGHt or it will snap the piece the plastic goes on. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: needing diagram of how to tighten handlebars on motorcycle

You have to remove the headlight, then the Nacelle ( passing lamps if you have them ) Under the lock ( which is removed with a small flat head screwdriver ( it's held in by 3 little push in tabs ) There are 2 phillips head screws( remove them ) then once you have the headlight out, there is a 5/16 nut holding the top chrome spine in place. Remove the nut lift the spline. then remove the nacelle one side at a time. Once you remove the nacelle the 1/4 allen bolts are right there to tighten. Make sure you tighten them evenly. Reverse steps to re-install back to normal.

One the earlier models, the handlebar connectors were down under the tank. But, Harley changes electrics every year so you never know. All I can tell you is "follow the wire".

I have a 1988 Jaguar vdp, when i go to start the car the dash lights go out, and turns the starter. But no power goes to ignition. I have changed the ignition switch. Don't know what it could be?

If the engine turns over it is not likely an ignition switch. Can you hear the fuel pump kick on? Is there spark at the distributor cap? My thought leans towards either a bum fuel pump or ignition amplifier (ignition module). If you would like a manual to aid in testing, let me know.

1980 z250c bike turns over no spark

Possibilities are; handlebar kill switch is grounding out, kick stand kill switch is broken or needs adjusting, a bad spark plug, power wire to ignition has come unplugged, bad ignition switch, ignition system needs service, coil or coil wire has gone bad. This list is in sequence of likelihood.

I have a 2007 Heritage Softtail. Brake light does not work. I checked the fuses and replaced the taillight. Still does not work.What next?

You have two brake light switches on your bike, a front brake light switch in the right handlebar switch housing and a rear brake light switch under the bike. To check for operation of either or both of the switches, remove the brake light lense and bulb. Turn the ignition switch on and have someone hold the front brake and depress the rear brake pedal at the same time while you check the contacts in the socket for power to each contact. One contact will be the brake light contact, the other is the tail light contact. If you have power to both, you bulb or the tail light ground is bad.

If you only have power to one contact, have the person helping you release both brakes. The contact for the tail light should remain hot as long as the ignition switch is on.

To find the rear brake light switch, find the metal brake line coming out of the rear brake master cylinder and going towards the rear of the bike. Follow this line until you come to a tee fitting with the rear brake light pressure switch screwed into it. Simply screw the switch out and replace it with a new one.

The front switch is more difficult as you have to disassemble the right handlebar switch housing, remove the throttle sleeve and open the housing up. Remove the screw holding the old switch and desolder the wires from the switch. Install the new switch and resolder the wires. Reassemble the throttle assembly and the switch housing taking care not to pinch any wires and making sure the throttle works smoothly.

Good Luck

2005 yzf-r1 no head lights .changed low beam bulbs high beam bulbs o/k but will only work on pass botton fuses are o/k

That is probably the handlebar hi / lo (or lights on / off if fitted) switch or no power to it
Check for power at the headlamp fuse
If no then suspect the ignition switch or wiring / connectors to it
If yes then check for power going into handlebar switches
If no then check wiring / connectors to them

That will isolate the problem for you

Have hand control wireing problem ,,,, need to know what color wire does what ,,,, got the left hand control to wire up on a older bike,,,,, hooking up trun sigals and head light control,,,,what color...

This information applies to the vast majority of Honda motorcycles. Colors for the right handlebar switch are: Grey sends power to the turn signal switch. Light Blue goes from the turn signal switch, to the right turn signals. Orange goes to the left turn signals. Light Green goes to the horn button.
The left handlebar switch: Yellow With Red stripe goes to the starter button. Black wires take power to the headlight switch and the kill switch. White goes to the headlight low beam, Blue to the high beam. Brown / White goes to the tail light, running and instrument lighting. Black / White comes from the kill switch and delivers power to the ignition coils.
I hope this helps.

No power to the fuel pump fuse 07 sportster 1200

Power to the fuel pump comes from the system relay via the fuel pump fuse. The power to the relay contact is from the ignition switch via the ECM fuse. The relay is activated with power form the ECM itself and is also controlled by the "stop/run" switch on the right handlebar control, so make sure it is switched to "run".
