Hello. Go to any auto parts store or bike shop and pick up or order the Suzuki manual for your bike. It will be about $25. but you will use it many times and always be glad you have it. In there you will have all of the wiriing diagrams.

Regarding your current problem check the ground and then check the switch itself. With a 78, corrosion often affects the ground and all of the internal electrical components. Joe

No power when key is turned on gages do there thing when key is turned off if wiggle key in on position get lite for a sec


Hi Charles and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine run switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, loose, corroded or broken battery cables, especially the "NEGATIVE" cable at both ends (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

1979 CX500. When you push the start button why does light dim


The starter button when pushed in half way turns the power off to the lights so more electricity can be used for powering the ignition and starter at the same time. If you press lightly you can turn off the lights with out engaging the starter. Pressing all the way down engages the starter. The button is a two position switch. Carefully take it apart , clean it and put it back together and you may fix the problem.I have three old Honda motorcycles that all have right hand switch assemblies wired to them from other bikes (Because the original was no longer available) You should be able to rewire any Honda two cable switch too work on your bike.

How do I hotwire my 78 shovel head?


Run a wire from the postive side of the battery to the top side of the coil. There should be two white wires on the top side of the coil and a black wire on the bottom. Once there, you can kick start the bike. If you want to use the electric starter, pop the rubber boot off starter solenoid and jump from the large top lug to the small lug in the middle to engage the starter.

Or, you can purchase an aftermarket switch and change out the switch. You need a 6-lug switch for you 78.

Need wiring harness diagram



Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual.
www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp They have a single manual for a GS750. It is for a 1976. That is close enough to your '78 to still be very useable.


Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Driving lights


I have solved this by raising the parking brake lever by one click,this does not engage the parking brake but trips the switch and makes the lights go off.
