You do not have to do anything if all you want to do is replace the switch housing cover. It is always necessary to indicate the vintage of the bike also as thing change fro year to year sometimes.

If this is really the XJ650 (in-line 4-cylinder engine) then yes - go to http://members.tripod.com/dave_jack/ to order the XJCD set. If it is the XS650 (vertical twin) then you should get the Yamaha service manual or go to www.650rider.com or www.mikesxs.com.

SOURCE: need wire diagram for the turn signal switch.

your wires are crossed/shorting somewhere, probably in the headlight. remove the light to get to all the wires. you should be able to see which colors go to which side, also look at the wires coming from the turn signals both front and rear lefts will be same color and the rights will be another color. you should be able to tell by looking inside the switch which side is which color and which one is the feed to the switch

sorry.. i don't know off the top of my head but super simple way to check.. get an electrical tester that pierces the wire and turns on a light.. ($5 at walmart--seriously) turn on left signal, check the wires.. the one that is flashing is your left signal... so on and so forth..

(this tool will be super handy in the future also)

SOURCE: replacing signal lights on a 1992 sportster that

The two wire system is for a turn signal only unit. The three wire unit has a turn signal and a running light in it. Remove the turn signal lense and you'll probably see a dual filament bulb. The two wire system is shown as an "International" wired model according to my book. One wire is the "hot" wire (Brown) and the other is a ground or earth wire (black) on the bike. On the turn signal unit, probably all wires are black. You can use a VOM to determine which wire is the ground wire or you can just try hooking them up in different ways until you find one that works.

SOURCE: Signal lights on R1 don't work...

Though I can't recall what the wire colors are for your bike's turn signals, here's how to figure it out: on the turn signals that you bought, first determine which wire is the ground by removing the light bulb and then checking to see which wire has continuity to the turn signal's metal bulb socket base.
Then find out which wire is the running light and which is the turn signal by hooking the ground wire and one of the other wires to a 12 volt power source. Which ever wire makes the brighter part of the bulb light up is the turn signal - the dimmer one is for the running light.
On the bike, match the turn signal wire to the bike's wiring that is 'hot' with the turn signal switch on. Plug the running light wire from the turn signal into the bike's wiring that is 'hot' whever the key is on. Hook the turn signal ground wire to the bike's ground wire(s).

Testimonial: "Thanks so much. Your advice about checking which wires are "hot" with key on or signal on makes perfect sense."

How to remove wire harness turn signal


IF in fact you are replacing the turn signal unit completely, there will be a wiring harness with the proper plug attached to the new one. So don't be scared to just cut the plud off the end of the harness after you unplug it from the cab harness. Then just pull the wires right up and out with the old signal switch. Replace it by just folding the new plug on it's side and feed it down through the housing. Plug it in and put the switch back together.

How to remove turn signal wire harness


New set will have a plug on it so don't be concerned about just cutting the plug off to get the old harness out. You have to remove the steering wheel and anything above the turn signal switch to give access to the little pivot bolt the switch is mounted by. Remove this pivot screw/bolt and pull the unit out. After the plug has been cut off the end of the signal harness, the wires will come out easily. Put all that aside, grab your new turn signal unit, Turn the plug on it's side, flat on the wires, and feed it down thru the column housing until the new switch is in position to bolt back on. Now put it back together in reverse of removal.

Front turn signal works but the running light doesn't


Hi Anonymous, 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.

97 Pontiac Trans Sport. Turn signal problem


verify the ground wire is good, black wire, its down on the frame rail, opposite of the air filter housing, if thats OK, it, could be the turn signal switch. but the wires go from the turn signal switch, through the Daytime Running Lights Module, through the fuse panel under the hood, then to the light socket. wire is light blue / white coming out of turn signal switch to DRL module, then its light blue all the way to the socket.
