Electrical / Re: Blinker fuse blows. Signals are wrong
« Last post by dave835 on August 21, 2017, 11:55:52 PM »
    Joe ,
 Your problem sounds as if it will be found in the headlight bucket . Many circuits connect in that area , and it seems
as though you may have some crossed wires and maybe a wire shorting in there as well . It's all too easy to put a lot of strain on the wires and plug-in connectors when re-installing the headlight .
  If you have a wiring diagram , make sure your turn signals color coding is correct . if you don't , check the wires from the rear signals for color code and find the connector  they plug into . You can see which front signal wire they hook up with and re-connect as needed .
  You may have a bare wire/connector inside the headlight bucket , or a ground wire (black) hooked to a signal plug !
BE PATIENT , BE METHODICAL , good luck!
                                                                                  Dave.

Sorry for the lack of punctuation in my post I did voice text and forgot to edit it so the fuse only blows when I turn my lights blinker switch to the right

Electrical / Blinker fuse blows. Signals are wrong
« Last post by JoeKek on August 20, 2017, 07:06:58 PM »
I have a 1977 xs500. My blinker fuse keeps blowing when I turn my blinker to the left the front right signal illuminates the back left signal illuminates and the rear brake light goes II filament when I go to the right it blows my fuse if I put in a bigger fuse I have a headlock plug in the headlight that gets hot and I think it is the plug that goes to my flasher thing behind the battery also gets hot I know very little of wiring I am learning as I go so please be layman's terms Etc in your descriptions thank you

I'm doing a top end rebuild.  What do you mean by email piece?

I'd leave it be until you have to pull it down for any reason then use the original email piece.

Engine & Transmission / One piece head or two?
« Last post by gentlemanjim on August 16, 2017, 10:15:12 PM »
I have the original two piece head for my running '74 TX500 and a one piece head both in speck and no cracks.  Which head should I use to rebuild the top end of my bike?  Are two heads really better than one?
