DR Electrical Problem.

Recommended Posts

What is you're take on this?

I'm new to the bike and don't know any of it's history.

1991 DR 650

I bought a battery because the guy said it needed one. I've been riding it quite a bit without much of a problem. I went out at night a couple days ago and couldn't believe how dim it was till I put on the brakes. I had noticed over the couple of days the Neutral light had been getting more and more dim.

When I hit the brake lever the lights get nice and bright. I took out the tail light and it seemed like it was charging the battery again. I went and bought a new tail light (Maybe a short in the bulb), but that didn't help.

Does anyone know right off what it might be or can offer trouble shooting suggestions?

Thanks You

Stas

FIXED!!!

Um, the silly guy who put the battery in didn't tighten down the Red/Positive lead properly and it came loose... I tightened that bad boy right up and BINGO! Lights brighter than ever...
