Hello! I am removing an old enduro/street legal kit for my 1997 XR400 and upgrading to LED blinkers and an LED front light - i want to keep the stock rear fender with the brake light/two filament bulb because it works. I am doing this with a Baja Designs Squadron Pro MC LED Race headlight, the Baja designs REC/REG and fuse, Tusk LED/Harness/blinker kit, and a 12V AGM battery. Here is my modified wiring diagram - with the Stock diagram for reference. Was hoping some of you wiring gurus (or XR guys) would look over my drawing and see if you can find any issues or have suggestions before I start cutting things up. :) Thanks!
Hey everybody, let me start this off by apologizing for not only beating this dead horse, but pulverizing it into a thousand little pieces. I have a 2007 WR450f and I am converting it to a supermoto. I've purchased a tusk wiring harness, Headlight Head Lamp Bulb Socket, turn signals , flasher relay, horn, brake switches, a handlebar switch (with hi/lo, horn, and turn signals) and I also have a keyed ignition switch. I decided to order all of these parts because they are the same parts as the guy from THIS VIDEO. I did this so I could just follow his steps and not worry about anything. The first issue came up when I found out his method of using that headlight socket to get power to his relay wouldn't work because 1) His bike is newer than mine and uses a different headlight bulb etc and 2) It appears his bike has a headlight relay and my '07 does not. He uses that relay to cut the power to his electronics just by using the factory push on/of switch. So killing power to the electronics without a switch isn't possible because I dont have that relay...okay thats fine. I wired my stock headlight to the hi/lo beam on my new handlebar switch and it worked just fine for a bit...and then it would only work on the low beam and when I turned the switch to hi it would turn the light all the way off....not sure why it worked fine one minute and the next minute this happened but OKAY I can live without hi/lo beams. Here is what I did step by step with links to what I watched/looked at to guide me. I took off all my plastics/gas tank etc and ran the harness through the bike. I installed the handlebar switch, horn, turn signals, ignition key. I wired the new headlight socket up but had to take that out and rewire it back to stock (kind of?) and in doing so the hi/lo worked for a minute but then only hi/off worked. I plugged in the turn signal, horn, flasher relay plug from my handlebar switch to my TUSK wiring harness. I took the wires coming from my stock tail light and ran them through and connected them to the tusk wiring harness. Plugged the turn signals into their respective places on the harness. I then connected the tusk wiring harness to my battery using the supplied connectors and double checked everything was in the proper place etc etc. Turn on the bike....NOTHING works. I mean nothing (except the headlight) Before I put the blinkers and everything on I had already hooked up the pressure switches to the front and rear brake and had it working fine. After I switched the brake pressure switch plugs into the tusk wiring harness the brake lights didn't even work.... THE FUSE!!! After I got over being bummed nothing worked... I started going through everything to see what was wrong and the little fuse thats included with the TUSK wiring harness was blown....but why? I followed instructions from the TUSK install video itself...why did the fuse blow?! Do I just get a new fuse and try again?! The only differences between this video install and what I did is I didn't use their "kit tail light"I kept my factory one I just cut their harness plug off and wired them individually and I also didn't get front turn signals only rear ones. ANYWAYS....Since I wanted to go riding the next day and needed my brake light and headlight working I unconnected everything and put everything back to how it was when I started (after I had put in the front/rear brake pressure switches. I am now (not before) getting my headlight power straight from the battery (I think) which is spliced into the brake light with the pressure switch wires. As of now the headlight works, the running tail light works (very dim) and the brake light works (very bright). I know someone is going to say I need a stater/rectifier upgrade but according to everybody, I dont. Lots of people have done what I am trying to do without those upgrades and using the same parts I have but for some reason I am just coming up empty with this install. At the end of the day all I REALLY want is a working headlight, brake light, and turn signals. If someone can tell me step by step instructions on how to either A ) Make everything work or B ) Make my headlight, brake light, and turn signals work...I will be forever grateful. I am honestly willing to send you money if you can help me figure this out.... Again, I am so sorry I know how much people hate old problems being brought back but I genuinely need help. I am not an electrician and know only the VERY basics so after I follow instructions and shit still doesn't work.... I am just lost....PLEASE HELP ME I DONT KNOW WHY THIS IS SO HARD FOR ME TO DO!!! Here are links to each part, video, and diagram I used: Install Videos: Video I used to order parts from/attempt first install from Official TUSK enduro kit install video Handlebar switch for headlight hi/lo (I used the diagram they show in this video and it worked at first but then only worked as on off/hi beam switch) Parts: Wiring harness Turn signals Flasher relay Handlebar switch Brake switch x2 Horn Ignition Key Headlight socket (not using anymore but was installed at one point without bulb)
I recently bought the universal Tusk Enduro lighting kit for my 2009 Yz250f and the Polisport MMX headlight in hopes of street legalizing my bike, I ordered the kit and the headlight but shortly after found that to connect the compact control switch I need a pre existing headlight and the wiring from the headlight to connect it with, and then the battery that comes with the kit is not said to be powerful enough to power both the headlight and the tail light. Could some one let me know how I can possibly hook up the headlight separately or possibly a larger battery I could use to power both the headlight and taillight easily?
So this might be a stupid idea, but im just spit balling. Any electricians out there that can answer my question? I wanna put a tusk universal street legal kit on my ssr 125, it has no battery. But what if I splice the power wire and ground, ect. To the bikes existing wires from the stator or rectifier. I figure at 7.5 hp, the mother makes more than enough electricity. Does that make sense or is it wishful thinking?
