Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a 1977 Yamaha DT400 that i'm tryng to get back on the road again. I'm having trouble getting the headlight to work. I have installed a new battery, checked and replaced the 10 amp inline fuse and i have good power to the handlebars. The blinkers work, the taillight/brakelight works, but I can't get any power to the headlight. I checked the headlight plug for ground and that's good, just no power at all. I have the tank off and i can chase the complete wiring harness up to the front and it appears to be in good shape, no obvious worn spots that would make a short anywhere. Is there a common problem that occus with these bike that I may have overlooked? (such as the rectifier) Thanks in advance for your imput. Mark.

Please cancel this post and again repost it on the "Motors" category. You've posted it on the "Website" category, it'd be difficult for the Motors expert to track your post. (Please, this is only a suggestion so that you can find the category expert easier.) Thank you.

2014 yamaha roadstar silverado manual


Available from a link on this page, but 10 bucks. They mention 'Paul's site' for free.

Yamaha do have manuals available for free although these tend to be owners manuals. Worth a look though.

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

Free 1977 yamaha dt400 manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi, Warren if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
