shorted wiring

Postby solarwing » Tue Aug 25, 2009 9:15 pm



I have a 1983 Interstate with a short in the fairing, the green w/black stripe wire is fried completely from the fairing side of the plug to its connectors. It does not seem to be damaged from the bike side connector to the ignition switch or the fuse box. My question is since this wire goes from the connector then splits off with one line going thru a 2 AMP fuse and the other going thru a 5AMP fuse and then to spare connectors behind the LH front turn signal do I really need to replace this wire? I am going to change all the other wires that were damaged when this wire burned.

I cut out the fried wire and fixed the damaged wires. All seems to be working properly now.

Anytime I find damaged wiring like that, I replace it. It might be working, but for how long....and I'd rather not see my bike go up in flames.
