Re: Please Help With Some Elictrical Weirdness.
I left work this evening and immediately discovered that my headlights (low and high) didn't work. A few miles later I realized that, although my running lights were on, when the blinker switch is engaged, the running lights don't blink! So I stopped in a gas station expecting to change the fuses and be on my way. Wrong! Both the headlight fuse and the signal fuse were OK.
So I gimp my way home using hand signals and peruse the manual. I did the tests it called for and I'm pretty convinced the blinker relay is dead as my tests revealed that the handlebar switch is functioning. These relays go for about $20 on Ron Ayers.com.
However, the manual doesn't mention how to test the headlight relay, in fact it barely mentions it all. On page 19-0 there is a diagram with the headlight relay pointed out but no mention of tests in the entire manual. I want to do the easy thing and order a headlight relay (even though its mislabeled on the microfiche as the starter relay) but I have trouble believing that 2 relays went at exactly the same time on a 2000 RR with 16,400 miles on it.
Can anyone advise me as to how to test this relay?
