Relay box

Post by Gordwing » Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:12 am

hello fellow riders.I talked a little bit about a relay problem I was having back a few weeks ago. My lights keep going out randomly so its dangerous at 5:30 in the morning in traffic to say the least.I finally took the box out and discovered 2 wires going from my tailight fuse into my light realy were arching to the point where it cracked the relay molding where the relay plugs in. I'm having a difficult time just getting the wires out. Whats the trick and what can I do about the cracked relay box?

About the only thing JB Weld can't fix is the crack of dawn, but I hear they're working on that.

If at all possible, could you post a picture, so we could perhaps come up with viable ideas for you?

I used to live in Orangeville, BTW. :)
