Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

This question is for Strech.Hey bro you have give me a whole lot of information I know you are a very smart guy especially when it comes to bikes.So I don't know if you caught my question about the terminal board and what wires went together.I know they just don't go anywhere.I got a blue,black,red from ignition switch,red and green from the taillights,a red and orange from brake light switch,and a red from starter relay.Someone was trying to help me with a electrical problem awhile back and took all these wires off the terminal board and I wasn't there now I am stuck I have the schematic you got for me but it does't show a terminal board on it and I know it has to be right,I just thought you might know where they would go.Thanks

As far as the terminal board (terminal block, terminal plate) , I assume you mean something like this:

http://img.jpcycles.com/zoom/382-054_A.jpg

You may or may not be using all of the connections (they come in different standard lengths, and might have more connections than you need).

Now, I can't remember which wiring diagram I sent, so I'm starting over with this:

http://shovelhead.us/specs/wire/1976_FL_FLH.gif

The lower diagram is actually an continuation (to the right) of the upper diagram.

On the upper diagram, item #1 (to the right of the headlight, with little spots inside of it numbered 1 - 11) is the FRONT TERMINAL BOARD.

On the lower diagram, items # 17 - 20 comprise the REAR TERMINAL BOARD.

These show how many wires go to each terminal connection (example, terminal #3 in FRONT TERMINAL BOARD shows 5 wires connecting to that one terminal, #s 9 & 11 are not used).

Now your wire colors MIGHT not be stock.

In which case a multimeter would help you chase the wiring:

Also, do you have a Fat Bob tank center dash ignition switch?

http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTA5MVgxMjI2/$(KGrHqZHJDME63ZMWiUbBO3tGwQzH!~~60_35.JPG

Or a key switch mounted somewhere else?

If the dash switch, this might help:

If a key switch, three wires would be:
1 - hot lead coming INTO switch
2 - lead going to ignition, brake light, instrumentation (for running without lights)
3 - lead going to lights (headlight, taillight) for ignition AND lights.

Hopefully, this will start you off.

    Delving into it more, it looks like both the taillight and the brake light, Both of their RED wires go to terminal #18 on the REAR TERMINAL BOARD, and a lead from there goes to terminal #10 on the FRONT TERMINAL BOARD. The taillight GREEN wire goes to terminal #17 on the REAR TERMINAL BOARD, which goes onto the LIGHTING CIRCUIT BREAKER.

    The brake light ORANGE wire goes straight to the ACCESSORIES CIRCUIT BREAKER. The wires coming from the STARTER RELAY should be TAN, GREEN, and BLACK. If your RED wire is thicker than the other wires, it might be the FUSIBLE LINK wire, that goes straight to the battery POSITIVE terminal.

    From your ignition switch wires, I assume it's a key ignition, rather than the tank mounted dash switch? Because you have 3 wires, rather than 4. The RED is probably the HOT lead, which goes to the ACCESSORIES CIRCUIT BREAKER, just like the ORANGE wire on the brake light. As far as your BLUE and BLACK wires, one's probably ignition, and the other lights. The multimeter will help you tell

SOURCE: 01SUZUKI KATANA GSX 600F Bad Starter/Relay Switch~that is the ?

If there is a clicking noise when you hit the starter button, then the relay should be fine.
If there is no sound, check the fuses before removing the starter.

SOURCE: 95 honda magna electrical system malfunction

I have a 98 VF2 750C Magna with a similiar problem as stated above. The starter switch is a quad pole switch which runs your accessories with the key on and also starts the bike. With some care take the switch assy. apart and the head lamp assy. Find the wire harness connecting the switch to the head lamp by following it down the trunk of the steering column. Disconnect and clean any corrosion (use baking soda and water with a small brass or steel brush) blow dry with compressed air. Check with multimeter between the contacts on the switch and the associated pins on the plug (easy enough they are color coded). Check each contact between pins and then to ground by touching a solid metal object with one lead of multimeter. All the wires should have continuity to each pin if not you have an open in the wire harness between the switch and headlamp plug. The only wire that should check to ground is the Blue/white wire (ground wire). If any other wires check to ground you have a short to ground replace switch assy and harness (57.00 @ Honda Direct). Out side of these measures you can check between the forward to contacts on the switch and the associated pin in the headlamp while depressing the switch. If you have no continuity as I do then the internals of the switch are bad so replace switch assy. There is a new switch assy. available at Honda direct that replaces the old type found in your bike.

Hope this helps.

The problem is not in your CDI, Solenoid or Battery most likely since you can short the solenoid as seen by the switch you have installed and the bike starts and runs.

Exhaust


Look around and see what you can find for your bike. Personally, I like my Micron and feel it gives out a lot of bass, but I'm not sure if they make one for your's bike. One thing to remember is you can never just add an exhaust. The air flow changes then the fuel flow needs to change to compensate for it. This could mean new jets for your carbs.

675 common problems


The only downside of owning a 675 is that you get depressed when you're not out riding. Sign up for a track day and let an instructor tell you about steering, braking, where to keep your eyes etc. It's a mindblowing experience. Have fun

Windows Vista-Windows live messenger and smart bro band


Hi,
your conflict or problem is with vista drivers.
get the latest updates from M$ for your machine.
Why do people always assume, that the latest is the greatest.
Vista is a pile of unfinished junk.
windows 2000-XP are far superior operating systems.
Vista is unfinished, like most microsoft products.
never get fully tested and debugged, they let the consumer find the floors.
