640 Adventure Electrical Breakout Schematics

This ignition schematic is the first in a series of 2003 and later (to my knowledge) 640 Adventure "breakout" schematics.
To follow will be, in no particular order, breakouts for the starting system, charging system and lighting/accessory systems.



To obtain an original (very large) size version of the ignition schematic, click here.

If anyone spots incorrectly included or omitted "wires", PM me with the details and I'll correct it ASAP.

As this type if work is time consuming, it may be a few weeks before I can drum up the effort to start another one. When I do, I will post it in this thread.

That’s it,
C

my vote for "Understatement of the Year"

Looks like a useful thing! Hope to doG I never need it or any of it's future bretheren... Does this mean you regained interest?

Enough interest to finish the ignition breakout.

The reason behind this idea is because I know plenty of people that are scared shitless of electrical gremlins because they either can't read a schematic or are overwhelmed by "all them freakin' wires going every whichaway"

If people can see that when a problem arises, they are really only dealing with the wiring in a sub-system, and not the whole wiring harness... then maybe they will be less apprehensive about trying to solve their problem.
Smaller bites are easier to eat.

Zat make any sense to you?

Another few weeks and I'll be good enough to "work" a clutch for awhile.

Thanks,

Yup. Your figures will be a great help, no doubt about it.

I am still apprehensive about electrical work though. My eyes glaze over when I look at the various wire bundles Are the bundles of wires in the harness indicative of the various sub-systems or do mfgs. bundle wires that happen follow the same route?

Just wondering how complicated electrial work gets in reference to the bundles; have you found it common to have to unwrap bundles of wires? Maybe that should not seem like 'major disassembly' in my mind, but it does...

I was afraid of that...

Well the breakouts will still be of assistance. Too bad the wiring isn't more logically organized on the bike. Seems like its more of an afterthought in my limited experience.

All manufacturers seem to run certain circuits in ways that defy logic. It really gets interesting when your diagram's color coding is wrong....

Thanks for your efforts. I hope I don't have to use it - but I've saved it just in case.
