Redrawn Honda XR650L Wiring Diagram


I bought a 1995 XR650L a couple weeks ago, and after seeing the wiring diagrams that were available online, I decided to create a more user-friendly version. If you see any errors, let me know.

FYI, I will update this graphic as I make edits.

Note - Once I get this finalized (I've already made a few minor changes since I put this up), I'll post it as a high-resolution 11x17 pdf (assuming that's allowed on this system).

Looks great!

The isolated diode near the neutral switch might need reversing.

Safeties isolated in a simplified schematic-

Thanks for drawing that.  I don't know why the manufacturers can't generate a color version like that.  Much harder to make mistakes on wire colors than when trying to distinguish Bk from Bl from Br.

      hey all, im fairly new to riding and just kind of stumbled across thumper talk, i recently purchased a 1984 honda xr 500 and was wondering if anyone knew of any common problems or things to watch for. the bike was rebuilt and set in storage before i bought it so im not expecting any failures but im wondering where a guy could find parts for something this old. if anybody has some old pamphlets or knows where to find the owners manual too that would be awesome thanks.

      I recently picked up a 1993 xr250 Baja, been well looked after, full service etc but 2 weeks ago I started having problems. It had been stood for 3 weeks after buying while I sorted out the insurance & when I came to start the lights & LCD dash worked fine but the bike wouldn't start, after bump starting it it worked but was popping & banging in 1st gear so I replaced the battery & added redex to the tank & the bike was fine. 
      Fast forward a week & half later to today & the bike starts fine, I ride it for 30 minute's then turn off. Go to start the bike 5 minutes later & nothing. The lights & dash work but the front light dims every time I push the start button & there is not a single sound coming from the bike. My mate mentioned it could be the battery but it's new. After checking every button & making sure I wasn't stupid enough to hit the kill switch  I bump it & it starts immediately. I ride around the block then turn the bike off, leave it for 5 minutes before starting it up again. I do this several times &  It starts perfect every time. The only thing wrong is the rear light is now not turning when it was perfectly fine before however everything else works fine. 
      I'm assuming it's the electrics but my knowledge of bikes is non existent so any help would be appreciated.

      I'm quite new to the moto scene and I've got a '09 CRF250R in need of what I believe is a top end rebuild. I've never gotten a rebuild before so I'm unfamiliar with the process and the steps to take in getting this done in a safe and efficient manner. I was wondering if anyone knew of any reputable shops in or near Vancouver, Canada (where I live) that could look at my bike and help me out with my situation. About 6 months ago I got an inspection on the bike and the shop told me that my cam bearings had "spun in their journals", requiring the installation of a new cam along with the rebuild. I haven't had anything done to the bike since the inspection so the motor is still in this state. She's running but I'm afraid that the motor is a ticking time bomb and would like a shop to take a look at it, let me know what needs to be replaced and get the rebuild done without me worrying about getting taken advantage of. I'm currently out of the country in school but have plans to get this done once I'm back. Any tips, recommendations, or help would be greatly appreciated!
