    I would like to say that the knucklehead jacka!@ who tried to answer my question you obviosly have no people skillz and are a complete loser!

    I just wanted to know why all my lights went out in the middle of my ride yesterday, and did not want a history of your sorry life in the trailer parks!

    This site is obviously for people who don't know as much as this pathetic excuse for a human who just wants to make others look and feel like ****!

Here's one fer ya bro! I'm cruisin down the blvd. in my fair hamlet one night and as I coast to a stop at a red light I ease into the rear brake to shut the ol' low rider down. The brake light comes on and as I rode sans head gear in the last millenium (smarter now days) I was keenly aware of the bright red glow at my backside. Alas as I pulled away from the light the bright glow stayed, well, bright. Strange I thought to myself, but then everything was pretty strange back then. So on I rode into sweet oblivion and the soft embrace of whatever lass I was lying to at the time about my everlasting devotion. The next day I was pulling the put out of the living room to go to the local tavern and work off the previous nights libations when I noticed that when I hit the hand brake to scoot around the coffee table made of surplus ammo boxes the head light flashed. I could see it plain as day in the PBR bar mirror the old lady brought home from work and hung on the trailer wall in the dining room. The head lights weren't on of course because my pops was crashing our couch since he just got out of the joint and I didn't want to wake him up so early. It was only 1 in the afternoon after all. So why did my headlights come on when I hit the brakes? If you got some sand you can figger it out without responding about the headlights being on all the time and exposing yourself as a new jack rub who should let someone else fix the bike you shouldn't be riding in the first place. Hope that helps (hint:1157)

    In all seriousness I did forget to address the issue of the lights in my gonzo tirade. read some hunter s thompson and check out his book hells angels and it will give you some back ground. the head and tail light share a circuit and the accessory and turn lights share a circuit so you have a poor connection or open connection or open fusible link or open ground pathway in the the circuit that is malfunctioning. really easy to troubleshoot I can totally help you find it and in the process a wiring diagram will quit looking like a recipe for greek spaghetti so hang in there bro and we can sort it out



Need some more info HD has been putting lights on motorcycles for, well, over 75 years now. model and year help alot

My tail lights dont work

If as you say power is definitely reaching the tail light, it could be that the ground is not there to complete the circuit.

Why wont tach and tail lights come on

Check your fuses! Also check the ground wires and connectors. Something may have come loose. Often the headlight runs off of the main fuse while all other lights on the bike run on a separate fuse.

Need help puttin on a trailer plug on 2002 suzuki marauder

You can pull all your power from the rear tail light! You'll need a multimeter(Or at least a test light of some sort!) on your adapter you'll have a green, a yellow, a brown and a white wire.
White- is your ground(Find a good clean nut/bolt on your frame)
green- Right turn signal/brake light
yellow- left turn/brake light
Brown- tail lights

What you'll have to do is find the wires for the tail light on your bike, And one by one probe them(with your multimeter/test light) With whichever accessory on(E.G. turn lights on, then probe the wires until you find the one that has power, This will be your tail light wire. same with both of your turn signals and brake light!

My head light sorted out. and i have no head light and no tail lights. i do have turn singals and brake light.

Well, you didn't say what year and model bike you have but you probably blew a fuse. Look under the seat or a side panel cover for the fuse block.

Good Luck

The tail lights have started staying in brake mode, turn signals not working properly. Some times when you hit a bad spot in the road the tach and speedometer stop working as well as the head lights. I...

Could be bad brake light switch but turn signals involved so? Has to be bad ground.Light sockets corroded bad wiring thru fender mounting bolts in tail light assembly broke but corroded in place,not a good ground.Has to be simple cause bike runs.

Electrical problem

The best way to troubleshoot an electrical problem is to return the bike to it's original condition and get everything to work like that. Then (using the correct instructions) reinstall the accessories one at a time making sure each part works before going on to the next one.
The "extra" wires probably are not extra. They may be the ground wires, Honda dosen't ground anything through the frame. Be sure you (or the person installing accessories) knows how to work with electric components.
