ho hum...an electrical problem

hello folks....I have had my 929 'blade for 3 weeks now and I am very happy with it although it has to go in for a recall on the forks (does anyone know why honda recalled them? and do they replace the full fork?) the other thing I noticed tonight in my shed where I keep it was that when you pull either brake the clock lights come on as does the side lights (but not the headlight). I must confess I hate electrical problems......everything works ok but I wouldnt like to brake at a junction and a car mistake my front lights coming on as a signal to pull out ....... any ideas?????

Re: ho hum...an electrical problem

sounds to me like someone has done some homemade wiring on this one. does it do this with the key off?

Re: ho hum...an electrical problem

yeah you maybe right about the home wiring...I have found a break in the wiring to the rear indicators where an alarm may have been fitted. The lights only come on with the ignition switched on. I have checked the visible wiring at the back of the bike and it all seems ok now but it still lights up the digital speedo when I apply the brakes

It's normal as long as it stops after a few seconds.
It's also normal for the gears to strip so the motor works without moving the pulley. Honda engineering :-)
Search "servo motor".

So, if I'm hearing you right, when you turn the key on, the headlight stays off, but all the other lights come on? Do they only come on when you pull the brake? Is the headlight on, then goes off when you apply the brake? Give as much info as possible so we can hook you up. The more we actually know, the faster we can get to the bottom of the issue and get you riding safely.

Re: ho hum...an electrical problem

cheers for the input so far guys........okay carolina 954 here goes.........if I turn the ignition on I hear the usual fuel pump priming noise and a faint buzzing from under the tank, the lights are all off and everything starts as it should...the indicators work and the headlight and horn all work ok BUT if I turn the ignition on and leave the headlights switched off and pull the brake lever or rear brake then the dashboard lights up and so does the 2 small lights either side of the headlight..this only happens when I pull the brakes. the headlight doesnt come on unless I switch it on normally. the servo constantly vibrates with the ignition switched on. I checked the servo lines up by bridging a connector near the battery and the index marks line up on the exhaust valve..I HATE ELECTRICAL STUFF heh heh!

But does the valve rotate when you turn the key on and when you rev it past 3000rpm?
