How to replace your speedometer cable/speedometer itself

I read your forum: How to replace your speedometer cable. Mine is screaming. I put on a new cable and lubed with standard old grease. I'll go get your suggested lube today. So I disconnected it from the speedometer, the cable is next to my speedometer but not connected and is not screaming. Can the ...

Re: Electrical Short

OK, to confirm, if I eliminate the short, will the continuity (C) from the positive cable at the battery before the solenoid, to the frame, be eliminated?

For troubleshooting, I disconnect the positive from the battery and replaced the fuse. I test for continuity (C) from the positive cable at the battery before the soleniod to the f...

solenoid?

Driving down the road and I smell plastic burning. Suddenly power goes out. I check the kill switch. all is good. I test battery, it is good. No power to the fusess. I jump the solenoid and it turned over. Every time I replace the solenoid fuss in it burns out instantly. Is the problem the solenoid?

Re: replacing my turn signal controls? I believe there is a short in the controls.

I will investigate. But the problems started before I found the auxiliary wire. The first thing I noticed was the head light went out. What I would like is a How-To for the controls. I would like to just replace the controls without going all the way down to the counter weight. Thanks for your reply.

replacing my turn signal controls? I believe there is a short in the controls.

I believe I have a problem with my turn signal controls. I got a replacement from a friend at your site here. The wires go up front under the counter weight. I do not believe I want to go in there. Any suggestions on replacing my turn signal controls? First my turn signals would not go off. Then the...

Re: How to replace your front brake pads

What are your thoughts on just disconnecting the break line and removing the caliper from the bike to remove the pins? Priming the breaks is no big deal, A?

Re: How to replace your front brake pads

You say, "Apply high-temperature brake lubricant to the pivot bolt." can I also use the same lubricant on the pins for easier removal next time?

Re: How do I remove the upper fairing? i have to change the left controls

OK, I know the shelter (false tank). I have had it off and could manage this. But the wiring appears to go in behind the inertia and then makes it's way to the head light. I believe there is a connection behind the inertia, does that seem correct? If so, should I remove the inertia with the upper fa...

How do I remove the upper fairing? Is it remove the lower panels then about 6 bolts to remove the upper?

Yes, both Hi&Low. Here was another wire coming from the harness behind the headlight. I jumped that wire in to the light assembly and current both work as if nothing is wrong? Electronics..... err

Twice I jumped it and it rode for some time, 50 miles once and I felt the drain. Sat. it was 20 miles after a charge and no drain.....

Re: Testing a Regulator / Rectifier

Based on miles. If I run like 120 mikles the battery wears down and is not charging as I run. I charge every night and don't usually have a problem. If I run like 50 miles to and from work, around the neighborhood, no problem. I hope to do some testing tonight. Question: Based on your 100's of reply...
