Checking Of Switches

Check the switches for the continuity between the terminals to determine correct connection.

Read the following for switch inspection.

SWITCH CONNECTION AS SHOWN IN MANUAL

The manual contains a connection chart as shown left showing the terminal connections of the switches (e.g., main switch, handlebar switch, brake switch, lighting switch, etc.)

The extreme left column indicates the switch positions and the top line indicates the colors of leads connected with the terminals in the switch component.

"O—O" indicates the terminals between which there is a continuity of electricity; i.e., a closed circuit at the respective switch positions.

In this chart:

"R and Br" and "L/W and L/R" are continuous with the "ON" switch position.

"B and B/W" is continuous with the "OFF" switch position.

"B and B/W" is continuous with the "LOCK" switch position.

"B and B/W" and "R and L/R" are continuous with the "P" switch position.

CHECKING SWITCH FOR TERMINAL CONNECTION

Before checking the switch, refer to the connection chart as shown above and check for the correct terminal connection (closed circuit) by the color combination.

To explain how to check the switch, the main switch is taken for example in the following.

1. Disconnect the main switch coupler from the wireharness.

Never disconnect the main switch coupler by pulling the leads. Otherwise, leads may be pulled off the terminals inside the coupler.

2. Inspect whether any lead is off the terminal inside the coupler. If it is, repair it.

If the coupler is clogged with mud or dust, blow it off by compressed air.

3. Use the connection chart to check the color combination for continuity (a closed circuit). In this example, the continuity is as follows.

"R and Br" and "L/W and L/R" are continuous with the "ON" switch position.

"B and B/W" is continuous with the "OFF" switch position.

"B and B/W" is continuous with the "LOCK" switch position.

"B and B/W" and "R and L/R" are continuous with the "P" switch position.

Please note that there is no continuity (an open circuit) at all for the color combinations other than the above.

4. Check the switch component for the continuity between "R and Br".

Checking steps:

• Turn the switch key to the "ON", "OFF", "LOCK", and "P" several times.

• Set the pocket tester selector to the "fix 1".

• Connect the tester (+) lead to the "R" lead terminal in the coupler and the (-) lead to the "Br" lead terminal.

Use thin probes for checking the continuity.

Otherwise, the probes may contact other terminals inside the coupler.

• Check the continuity between "R" and "Br" at the respective switch positions of "ON" (l), "OFF" (¿, "LOCK" (3), and "P" (4). There must be continuity (the tester indicating "0") at the "ON" switch position, and there must be no continuity (the tester indicating "oo") at "OFF", "LOCK", or "P". There is something wrong between "R" and "Br" if there is no continuity at the "ON" position or if there is some continuity either at the "OFF" or "LOCK" or

Check the switch for continuity several times.

5. Next go on to checking of the continuity between "B and B/W", "L/W and L/R", and "R and L/R" at the respective switch positions, as in the same manner mentioned above.

6. If there is something wrong with any one of the combinations, replace the switch component.

CHECKING OF BULBS

ELEC

CHECKING OF BULBS (FOR HEADLIGHT, TAIL/BRAKE LIGHT, FLASHER LIGHT, METER LIGHT, ETC.)

Check the bulb terminal continuity for the condition of the bulb.

The bulbs used in the motorcycle are classified as shown left by the shape of the bulb socket.

@ and © are mainly used for the headlight.

© is mainly used for the flasher light and tail/ brake light.

© and (Ê) are mainly used for the meter light and other indicator lights.

CHECKING BULB CONDITION

1. Remove the bulb.

• Bulbs of the @ and © type uses a bulb holder. Remove the bulb holder before removing the bulb itself. Most of the bulb holders for this type can be removed by turning them counterclockwise.

•Most of the bulbs of © and © type can be removed from the bulb sockets by pushing and turning them counterclockwise. •Bulbs of the (D type can be removed from the bulb sockets by simply pulling them out.

Be sure to hold the socket firmly when removing the bulb. Never pull the lead. Otherwise, the lead may be pulled off the terminal in the coupler.

A WARNING

Keep flammable products or your hands away from the headlight bulb while it is on. It will be hot. Do not touch the bulb until it cools down.
