    Thanks anyway back to it then. F M X 650 very nicemagic for a yeti sob.sob. I have downloaded a manual now ill try again but basicly i am trying to find out how to (shush), warm wire it, as the clocks are missing no ign or lights, to see if the old heart is still worth saving,wires back to their original destinations? not just yet thats most of the problem, where? ta again im off ohms testing,

  • m_mcneley May 11, 2010

    A silly question, have you connected all the wires back to their original destinations via **** end connectors or what ever it takes? Have you checked all the grounds? Alot of times this is the simplest overlooked problem (even if it looks good it may not be and should be ohms tested for continuity). Some models have sensors/switches for break lite activation that will falter entire electrical systems when failed. Have you purchased a shop manual and ohms tested all electrical components (electrical tolerences and prociedures are in the electrical section as well as wireing scamatics? Your local dealer can get you the shop manual u need. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Sorry to hear of your nightmare with the recovered XT, i,m afraid your best bet is to download a manual, now there are a couple of sites out there that let you for free, usually in PDF format and obviously copies, but atleast you would then have a diagram. I can't help further as there may be other components needse or missing that are important even on a basic torky single like yours. I ride an FMX 650 but i like the Yammy and its alot lighter than mine. Best wishes - the Yeti - Hastings

Hi Ruben, always check fuses and bulbs first, you could have a faulty turn signal module or a bad turn signal button/switch, remove it from the switch housing and check for continuity, check your wiring and connections from the turn signal switch to the turn signal module with a testlite. Make sure all wires are not worn or pinched and connector pins are not corroded, broken, or loose. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below:

i can see your wiring is all messed up

got a voltmeter,
if not only guessing and wire inspections may work
ever consider get a sparks guy to fix it? He can and easy.
I promise.
for me to teach you electrics in this box, is over the top hard.

id have inspected all those wires, every inch
and #1 is trailer wiring hacks at the rear.
the tails are not tails
if you its Parking lamp after the front parking lamps or side markers can not be called TAIL,but yes, some fuses are still using the old 1884 now TRAIL name
check fuses yet, means test them ones that look good test.
using a METER.

or that wires IS SHORTED

Doing research for a law firm regarding an accident involving a Caterpillar 55 Challenger. Question is if the Challenger had it's four-way flashers on, would the turn signal still work?

Four way flashers and turn signals are typically on the same circuit. If this is the case than no the turn signals would not work since the turn signal switch has been bypassed by the four way flasher.

I wiring diagram for this model would confirm whether or not it was wired in the above fashion.
