Question about 2008 Yamaha XT 660 Z Tenere

1 Answer

No brake lights, no horn, no indicator lights, no turn signals.

I have a 1981 Yamaha 400 Special and when I bought it everything worked fine. However, my indicator lights (Neutral, oil, etc.) do not work now, my turn signals don't work, and my brake lights won't flash when I slow down. They come back on occasionally, and for very brief periods, but not reliably. I replaced the battery, all fuses work. What's wrong??

    Keep blowing fuse when kickstand is raised. It is a 20 amp fuse that powers turn signals/four way flashers, horn, neutral light and gas gauge. Everything else electrically seems to work - starter, headlight and taillights.

Please check the battery terminals, the wire might have been displaced from the terminals or have a loose connection

Can't get aftermarket led turn signals to work on my 81 xs 400. Any way to bypass and make work?


You will need to get a resistor for the lights as the Yamahas will not work/flash without the proper resistance in the bulbs. I had to stay stock on my XS650 for the same reason.
