SOURCE: while riding all lights started to flash engine run erratic bike died of death bike will not start

Start with charging and load testing the battery. Then test the stator, to test the stator on the bottom of the right down tube is the plug that goes from the stator to the voltage regulator. With a multi meter, read the voltage from the stator, I forget the exact values but as you rev the motor the voltage should climb if it dosn't your stator is bad. If the stator is good take a reading again with the motor running at the battery cables, again I forget the exact value but you should have a steady reading at the battery, if it isn't and fluctuates it is bad.

SOURCE: Color code for turn signal wires

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Honda in general uses standardized wiring scheme:

  • green - common ground;
  • light blue - right turn signal;
  • orange - left turn signal.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: Big loss of power while riding. Compression loss?

If the bike just suddenly lost power but it still ran, I would suspect the carburetor slide diaphragm provided it still has the original Keihen CV carb. If the diaphragm gets a hole in it, the slide will not go up and down in the carb.

Remove the air filter cover and air filter so that you can see inside the carb. Standing away from the mouth of the carb, rev the engine and see if the slide moves up and down. If so,it's fine. if not, the diaphragm has probably got a hole in it. To get to the diaphragm, remove the carb from the engine and remove the top. With the top off and the long spring out, you can easily remove the diaphragm and the slide. When replacing, be very careful not to pinch the new diaphragm.

One other thing that it could be is something has caused a restriction in the exhaust system. This would probably only be possible in the case of single mufler system.

SOURCE: 92 nighthawk LED blinker problems.

Honda always grounds the turn signals separately (usually a green wire)not directly to the frame.Not hooking up the running light should not effect anything except forward visibility to other motorists. If you have a two prong flasher relay, go get a cheap flasher relay ($5-$10) and replace it. The only problem I have ever heard of when switching to LED turn signals is a flicker / fast flash instead of a normal slow flash. This is remedied by adding diodes to the wires.

Check the Accessory fuse 15 Amp to see if blown If blown, check wiring under rear fender as it is common to get frayed wiring due to loom hanging down or a larger tyre than stock fitted and rubbing against wiring loom.

Front & Rear turn signal

Not familiar with the Softail Rocker, but the 2009 Baggers have a "Turn Signal Security Module" (TSSM) as one unit.
This is what it looks like:

My tail lights are out on my 2008 HD Softail Night Train. The blinkers work. The front lights all work. The brake lights work. Its just both the rear tail lights are out. What should i do?

Hi Collegekid62, always check the bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light.

Harley davidson presure tires custom soft tail

It depends on the size of your tires really. The Softail Custom had the 5.00(MH90)16 rear and the 2.75(MT90)front tire. The pressure for a single rider should be 30 psi in the rear and 30psi in the front. For two up riding, increase the rear tire to 36 psi.

Hi .... Tyres are one of those things that every rider you speak to will have a different favorite. Depending on your riding style try Avon Super Venoms, Avon RoadRider or a dual compound rear like a Bridgestone BT45 ............... Let us know how you get on.
