Ok, so I have a 2000 650 Classic and it's had some mods... namely an aftermarket LED tail-light. Looks good but apparently the rear turn signals kept getting broken off by passengers. I don't have the stock setup.
In fact, I don't have ANY turn signals. Front or back.
So, I bought some aftermarket turn signals and some extra headlights. My understanding is this;
GREEN = Right Turn
BROWN = Left Turn
BLUE = Constant
BLACK = Ground (which comes from the actual headlight pigtail)
So... I hooked up the right side... and just to clear a dozen questions - I tried all sort of combinations just to be sure. Nothing.
So I checked the fuses... signal fuse was burned out. Replaced it. Then my neutral light starter working again - sweet! And the turn-signal INDICATOR came on for a few seconds but wouldn't shut off... so I hit the right side switch thinking that would kill it. And it did - just not the way I expected. It popped the fuse. This happened several times.
I put in a 15a fuse TEMPORARILY to help track down the bad ground/connection... the flasher relay instantly started smoking so I pulled the fuse.
Now, I've got nothing. I don't even have my normal tail light working. Wtf?
I'm sure being 14 years old... you guys must have a general idea on where I should look to get this fixed. Also... I probably need a new flasher. Anyone have one they can send me STAT!?!?
In the meantime, is there a way I can test turn signals without the relay? Can I bypass it or something? I'd hate to burn up another one anyway and just putting in more 10a fuses isn't going to do anything. They will just keep popping until I find the source of the problem.
Or have I answered my own question and learned that the flasher WAS the source of my problem?? Help me out guys!!
FYI - here's the front turn signal setup I bought...
And here's the rear... but I don't think they're big enough, bright enough or... RED enough lol.... so they will be replaced. I'd like to go stock back there if I can find a setup at a reasonable price. Anyway, here is what I'm working with right now - but I haven't touched them yet. Only the front.
