Illumination of the handlebar controls.

Post by Falcom54 »



Hello everyone, reviewing the illumination lights on the left and right handlebar controls, which did not light up, I started to change them into led's, assuming they were burnt out, but NO! No voltage is reaching either side, can you tell me where the voltage supply comes from? Since the LEDs do not light either and I checked with a multimeter and there is no voltage, the fuses are fine. help!

What other lights don't work? Switch and audio illumination power is taken from the turn signal switch and also feeds the cornering lights on the SE. Old eyes and wiring diagrams don't work well together anymore but more could be said if needed.
Try to learn from the mistakes of others..... you won't live long enough to make them all yourself!

How are you, I tell you that I already solved the problem of the lights of the handlebar controls and put blue LEDs on it and it looks great, thanks ...
