Hi guys, just picked up my 95 xr600r. Test drove it and everything seemed fin, brought it home and changed out the front/rear wheel bearings, chain slipper, chain guides, etc.
When I bought the bike I was told it has a Baja designs dual sport kit on it, it had the headlight and taillight/tag light. I've gota front and rear brake switch wired up for the brake light too.
So when I bought it, he said the lights didn't work, I thought no problem I can take this apart and figure it out. We'll I got it home and noticed both the bulbs where blown (headlight, tailight) bike did not come with blinkers. I pulled the bike and wiring all apart. And started ohming out the entire wire harness, everything checked out. The bike did have a 12v rechargeable lithium ion battery pack installed. It wouldn't charge and had no output, so I bought a new tusk replacement battery pack, The turn signals, and a new flasher, and wired it all up. I crimped and soldered all of my connections as the kit was a hack job when I first got it.
Now I tested everything with a new handlebar switch wired up and with the bike off it all worked. Turn signals, brakes, etc. I drove the bike for a couple hours and I come home and noticed no tail light with the bike on, and no flashers either. Pulled it all back apart and found that all of my wires still have 12v running to them, and the switches all work, but literally my led taillight and blinkers are all FRIED. Just out of curiosity I wired up a spare led blinker. Low and behold it worked. My question is. What would cause the tail light and blinkers to blow? My headlight runs off ac s, it still works fine, and when I turn hit my brakes, the light lights up but the tag, brake, and turn signal led are all fried. Still all have power when switched to their positions. Anyone seen this before?
