I like the easy on/off of the DB's and traded my Coyote for some with mounts.

Thanks for the heads up. I scored a complete air filter box and a spare filter for $30.

Running light...

As newer TE610 owner, I've read or seen mention of a running light more than once. I presume this light people talk about in the small white bulb in the headlight assembly? If so under what conditions is it supposed to be on? I have noticed mine never lights. The bulb seems good. Should it light when the key is on even if the engine is not running? Thinking I have a loose connection somewhere. Other than this all the other lights seem to function as I would expect.

Thanks
Darren

With the key on, the small bulb in the headlight should be on, along with the tail light and instrument display. Is it on when the bike is running or always off?

The only thing mine does is make people tell me my headlight is on when it is jus the little bulb, I hate it.

It seams to be on when ignition is on but kill switch is in off position (in).

Dear Mr. Loops-A-Lot, check the wiring around the subframe area.

Golly, thank you, friend

I don't wanna jynx myself here, but I've never looped it. Though I have come VERY close doing some very bad HIGHLY illegal wheelie's in downtown Manhattan beach! (unlike a certain someone I know that wheelie'd it all the way over on his TEST RIDE in Uptite's parking lot)

The thing that has me perplexed re the brake light is that I checked it a couple times when I broke it, and it worked fine. The tail never came loose and tightened up neither, the left side stayed attached.

I'm dreading getting into it, the LED police strobe I have has a wire that's getting REALLY short.

Also, just to confirm, with the engine running, the wire from the brake(s) should be Pos when pedal is activated, right?

The brake light works when the key is in RUN position, engine running or not. Does not work in the "Park" position, only tail light and city light (front 5W bulb) on then.

I used to think I was pretty good at 12v wiring, and had a decent grasp of the basics. But for some reason this bike confounds me!!!!

OK, from the tail light, the brake is the Blue wire, right?

If I disconnect the tail at the plug by the shock, and power the blue wire to the light, the brake lights. So I've wired the tail how I thought it should be.

Now, going the other way, on the the main wiring harness, the blue has continuity to ground, AND at the headstock there are a bunch of blue wires coming out of the harness to the blinkers etc. that all look like they go to ground.

So I guess I gotta ask again, is blue ground or the brake circuit? ('08 610)

Is there a ground wire to the tail?

And with the connector to the tail disconnected, none of the wires go hot when EITHER when brake is applied.

I would think if I had a short, I'd be blowing fuses, and a break should not take out both brake wires. so???

No problem xymotic. There is a "blue" and a "sky blue" The darker blue is ground.





Sky blue is left turn signal, yellow is either brake light or running light, green is one or the other, the darker blue is ground, and red/black is right turn signal. Obviously, if put one lead of a volt meter to yellow and the other to ground and step on the brake you can determine if the yellow or green is the correct wire for the brake light.
