Hi guys, well because the response was so fast and i solved the issue in regards to my last problem. im going to see if we can now fix this problem.

Does anyone know what these wires are for?
They are at the headlight end. I need to know what the 4 in my hand do. and also the 6 in the connection individually. I think the connection is for the handlebar switch block. But i need to know which wire does what.

Again any help would be great.


Found a wiring diagram that might help:





Yellow = hi beam indicator light
Blue  = tachometer lamp
Green/Yellow = front brake switch
Blue/Red = pilot lamp (in headlight)

+ves means the positives for either hi/lo beam - they share the -ve.

The bulb connectors prongs should be labeled if you pull the connector

Nah they arnt, but that's ok I solved the issue of the bulb wires. I just tested it on the battery so now I know what wires do what for the bulb.
Sorry everyone I should have done that in the first place.

I'm still stuck with all the other wires.

Rather than me throwing hammers in the garage because i cant figure out the wiring,
i have started to make a small bracket to hold the speedo.
