    I have been searching for a colored wiring diagram for my 1976 CJ360. The Clymer manual for 250 and 360 Twins (1974-1977) has a pretty useful one. However, I noticed that it leaves out the wiring for the front running lights, which is a second filament in each bulb. I came across some really...

    Howdy there fellas. I have a 1979 CM185 that I accidentally nuked the other day. The extent of my electrical knowledge has been dealing with a trio of 1964 C200s that were dead simple and $30 of gack let me swap them over to 12v. I tried the same thing on the CM here and she died immediately...

    This bike is new to me although i have owned another twinstar in the past. This bike has been sitting for years in the PO's garage and when I got it, I bought a remanned carb and a new part and it kicked right up. Only problem I've been having is after riding for more than about 15 minutes...

    I recently got my 1981 CM200 running and replaced the incorrect 12V electrical parts (rectifier, bulbs, and flasher unit) with 6V parts. I was very happy to see that the turn signals are now working, BUT the headlight and brake light flash in unison with the signals. Anyone know what is going...

    Team Gofast (me and my son) has purchased a 68 Honda cb350 for vintage racing. It has no charging system. It's constant discharge. I've replaced the points with a Tytronic electronic ignition by connecting the red to red, the blue to blue then spliced the 2 black/white wires together and...

    Hello, There’s a 1981 cm400 posted local to me for $900. The bike looks nice, has aftermarket headlight, new seat, chopped off stock rear fender with a custom chrome one in its place, however the bike has no spark. It looks like the only readily available part that could be replaced is the...

    Hello, Seeking advice on puzzling '74 CB200 issue. I do have the wiring diagram but can't seem to track this one down. Installed new left handlebar switch unit. Initially, upon installation, lights and blinkers worked fine. Horn did not work. Assumed it was because the horn was shot...

    My high beam indicator is stuck on unless I get my key in just the right position between on and off. My headlight is good and I'm obviously getting power flowing through there as the indicator comes on. I don't really have any idea how long this has been going on since I almost never drive...

    Hey all just installed a new engine on my bike and thought i was ready to start her up last night. I had all the wires connected and went to push the start button and nothing. The head light is off (connectors ripped off the light) and was reading an older discussion with a similar problem. Some...

    The headlight, front blinkers, and rear lights all work but only when I jump the fuses. Is this a problem with the ignition switch? the ignition switch works when stopping the engine from running??? so close to finishing

    I’m very new to vintage Hondas and motorcycles in general, but have done quite a few standard maintenance procedures to my bike since I’ve gotten it. However, after putting my 1972 Honda CL350 back together today after some work, the lights aren’t coming on. I’m not sure where to start since I...

    Hi guys, recently purchased a 1979 CM400t. Earlier I was trying to install rear turn signals but when I was fiddling with the wiring, I noticed when I would bump the wires that connect the tail light to the rest of the wiring the tail light would go out. The previous owner wrapped the wires with...

    Howdy fellow wrenches (wrenchers? Wrenchees?), I'm having a little issue as I'm putting my '93 XR250 back together. The first mistake I made was not labeling three wires that leave the alternator and go to the regulator. The manual says they should be different colors but for whatever reason, on...

    Hello! Got my new R/R in the mail today, and did a video of me going through the process of replacing the stock one, as well as the battery. Its a bit on the longer side, but I wanted to be thorough and document the small hiccups in the installation I went through. Hopefully at some point or...
