Fairing grounds??

Post by robert78.5 » Tue Jul 03, 2018 2:50 pm



I have bike running now 1983 Aspencade. No headlight and turn signals both flash dim when either side is selected, and volt meter only shows about 9 volts , I put my gauge on battery and it is charging just under 14 volts. Looks to me like a poor ground to fairing.. Is there one main ground for this or is it multiple grounds?

Go to the "manual" at the top of any page. Follow the wiring diagram.

The plug by the left knee is where all the fairing wires lead to, including the ground.

Got it working, i removed headlight and someone cut the green wire and spliced in a wire to the added fog lights on roll bar, now everything works when i put fog lights back on. Ingenious..
