    Okay, so I got this 2002 Yamaha v Star 1100 custom for virtually nothing. The guy was just riding it last year.

    If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I crashed the bike a while back, and had to replace the headlight assembly. I had to disconnect and reconnect all the wiring. The issue I'm having is that the tail light blinks when the blinkers blink. In addition, the brake light is not...

    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...

    This is my first bike, and I am running into some issues with the wiring. The bike will start up and ride just fine about 70% of the time, but it has a very strange problem every once and a while. The lights will come on when the engine is off and they will all work fine, but once the engine is...
