Electrical..... HAAALP!!!
« on: Jun 06, 2018, 18:19:21 »
I had some gremlins in my stock harness (1980 Cb750f). Now Iím looking to make my own harness, because a tanked the budget. I want to simplify this mess, but I canít find a simplified diagram. Iíll be running p/a ignition, and cycle xís charging system. Iíve got those two sorted out, but Iím stumped on the rest.

Biggest issue Iím having right now are my switches. I bought a universal set from spark moto, and they didnít come with any kind of diagram explaining which wire goes where. Sent several emails, and got one vague response. Needless to say Iím not pleased with that.

Trying to make my life easier. Any advice or info is appreciated. A simplified diagram for the essential items would be a homerun

Which part was vague? I did say that all of the colors (except a few I specifically called out and detailed how to wire up) matched with the stock colors. Sorry I don't have a diagram for these.

A few of them are the same color. Thatís true, but thereís no way to tell which wires go to which switches? How am I supposed to wire them up? I donít need directions I need a diagram. Great waste of 65 bucks, and a huge disappointment considering they are built well. Too bad

If thereís no diagram then how the hell do you know which wires go to which switches? Guess!? Or spend 500 on a ďcustomĒ harness so I can use them.

I got the bike wired up. Donít worry. As for the universal switches, theyíll be up on eBay soon. Maybe I can cut my loss.

Post the switches up here before you hit eBay.
Most of the members here are smart enough to trace wires back to the individual switches to determine which one goes where.
The rest are smart enough to follow directions ;)

I am surprised that you can't trace wires back to the switch to work out which circuits they are. I'm no electrical engineer and if I didn't have a multimeter, I'd use a battery and 12v bulb from a tacho or similar or go to the local auto parts store and buy a circuit tester.

That basically is how most of us manage to fit switches form modern bikes, or universal switches onto our old bikes.  It's pretty simple really.

BTW, do you have a Norton 600SS or does your screen name have some other connotation?

If the colours match the stock switches then the stock diagram is going to show you what leads where....
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

On the old clymer manual the bike is #88 and itís an f super sport. I couldnít come up with a user name, so I just punched in 88ss.

The colors donít match the stock switches. I couldnít tell which wires were going where on the universal switches, and got frustrated with trying to figure it out.

I would think a diagram for the universal switches wouldnít be too much to ask, but maybe Iím wrong. Either way, Iím not trying to spend a month wiring up switches I plan on changing out anyway.

The stock switches were dried out and corroded. I was hoping for a reasonable swap to get me through the summer, but now itís too late. Iíve already re wired the whole bike to run no switches
