Newbie Question!

Postby trckrh » Fri Mar 26, 2010 11:52 pm



Hi

I have a 1986 Aspencade 1200. I am having an issue with the tail lights working on this bike. The turn signal, four way flashers, and brake lights work fine but am having no luck with tail lights. Anyone that can offer some assistance with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Do they work sometimes, or not at all? Do they come on if the key is in the P position?

Take off the seat, find the connector for the tail lights make sure there is voltage from the connector to ground... should be close to batt. voltage....did you check the bulbs... etc ..let us know what you find....if this is beyond your knowledge, I recomend that you find a good mech....the electrical troubleshooting manual on the site will help immensely, good luck.....

Not that I have any major experience, but in the short time I have had my 86 I have found that most of my problems have come from the wire splices (viper clips) eventually snapping the wires in the harness where they are attached
