Question about Motorcycles
Hello I just replaced my flasher relay with a brand new one on my LT2 100 however the the relay engages the lights correctly but they still don't blink. I'm wondering if I have to have a specific load on the relay to make it flash the bulbs. Do I need a load resistor? Thanks for the help
Don't blink? did you put LED bulbs in the turn signals? if so, the relay probably uses +25 volts DC load at the bulb. Led bulbs pull less load. Make sure that you have the proper bulb in the sockets, and that the relay is rated properly (Load) for the standard setup .
in other words, if the bulbs don't work, or one bulb is burned out on one side, that will make the bulbs blink faster than normal because the circuit is too 'hot' ie: not enough load on the circuit to make the relay work properly.
if its still not working at all, check to see if you have a fuse in that circuit (probably) if its blown it will not charge the relay and they wont work. if its an unfused circuit, which on that bike it probably is, you should test with a volt meter the leads that plug into the relay to see if they have voltage. If they don't, you have a broken wire, or some other issue that's preventing power from getting to the relay. Maybe an issue in the actuation button on the handlebar.

Testimonial: "Thanks the flasher I bought is a YHA506 model 115-83350-60-00 which is stock and the bulbs I have in the lights are 6 volt 10 watt I looked on a schematic for the bike and the stock bulb calls for 17 watt it says on the face of the flasher bulb: 21 cp x 2 + 2 cp. The bulbs are standard not LED."

SOURCE: does the yamaha 1972 250
Yes it does. The points are located under the flywheel. You will have to take the side cover off to get to them. This is an tedious procedure. I would recommend getting the manual for it.
If I remember correctly the points should be set at .016".
You will, most likely, need a Impact Screwdriver and a puller. You can do it without the puller, but I don't recommend it due to possibly damaging the flywheel and / or threads.
Once you get the parts disassembled, it would be a good idea to clean everything up before re-assembly.
I hope this helps.
