    Hello, I need help knowing where to plug in the digital display on my Honda cbr500. I am a new rider and made the mistake of trusting someone selling a used bike. He said the tach wasn’t working but it was just a fuse. Turns out the digital dash is disconnected on my bike, and I have no idea...

    So my Yam has a side mounted number plate with a license plate light that has a wired connection. This wire feeds back to under the seat where it’s been soldered onto two of the three wires that feed back to the brake light. So long story short I cornered left too hard and the road decided it...

    So, my bike didn't turn on when I twisted the key. I found out that my ignition switch was broken so i manually connected the black and red wire to turn on the bike. Everything worked and as I tried the blinker the neutral indicator light was blinking, instead of the blinker. Then the bike...

    I just bought a 1977 Suzuki GS750 the other day and I was able to get it started up if I jump start it. The whole fuel system is looking great but for some reason my bike isn't wanting to rev up or give me much power. I found out that if I keep the jumper cables connected to the bike battery and...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2012 RE C5 Bullet that keeps shutting down while riding with electrical problems. I've replaced the relay starter, and the magento. The electrical shut offs continue. I touch wires and wait, and the bike restarts. Does this sound like a wiring problem and do you think a...

I am doing some minor restoration on a 1980 CB650 and after getting it running and road worth I have put about 200 miles on it give or take. I noticed the...

    I just got my first motorcycle recently, a vintage honda XL250, seemingly in great shape. The first thing I did was replace the battery because it was old and only $20 to replace, but it's been having very strange electrical problems ever since. With the new battery in it, everything will work...

    Unfortunately, it seems that I've come across some electrical problems while I was moving my bike. It seems the tarp that I was using to cover it decided it would rather fray than do it's job, and the end result became it getting wrapped around my rear turn signals and ripping them off. Now I...

    I've been having issues with the electrical on my 1978 Honda CB400. The problem seems to be related to the charging system. After riding for awhile the battery is dead and it's a new battery. I tested the charging system per the manual with the bike running and the readings were all out of...

    I have an Italika DM150 (I'm in Mexico for the winter). A few months ago, the clutch developed a quirk: if I tried to pull it in & start in 1st gear, the start button wouldn't work until I let it out a little... it's been like that ever since. A couple days ago, the start button stopped working...

    Hey guys, '75 CB360 died while riding. I heard a popping noise, then the rpms seemed to drop really low as I came to a stoplight. Died completely at the next stop. I was able to start again but had to keep revving to keep it alive. Lost power again a few blocks later and I couldn't start...
