Check the bulbs and sockets first I've seen bad bulbs blow fuses. At least you've got it narrowed down to one system. Electrical problems can be a major pita.

Or meef seems to know you modded your electrical system. Start there.

If it's happening when you're NOT using your turn signals, I'd look to the front signal wires. Those bulbs are always on.

I'd disconnect the signal wires one at a time and try process of elimination.

Lic. plate light is also an "always on" circuit.

Perhaps a Grand Prix -

[QUOTE=indypup;21270429]

so I'm leaning toward Perry or Wayne. QUOTE]

Hey 'Pup' - whut up?

We're going to ride a Grand Prix Sunday just south of Nelsonville on SR33 at FASTRAXX race track. Each race is 1 hour - you can run as many classes as you are eligible for (displacement / age / etc). There's probably 6 - 7 races. It's a combination of trail, a little MX course, pasture, fence lines and everything in-between. The big boys start riding about noon.

Nothing so hard to dampen the spirit and you can't get lost. And if you're not riding, you can spectate.

And you can everyone you went racing -

see: Fastraxxracing.com

See you there!

Until you sort it out... don't use your blinkers?

It's happening when I'm NOT using the signals. Meef is right about having a different tail light. I have the DRC Edge one. Only way I know it happens is the dash goes out. Then I know not to turn off the bike cause it won't start. :( When I get home tonight I'll tear into it. I'll post up here what I find out hopefully before it get too late.

Hmm, not sure what I'd be getting myself into! I don't want to get hurt! I'll check out the Fastraxx website...looks like it's http://www.fasttraxxracing.com/

Any dash upgrades? Something has to be shared between all those systems. Loose batt cable maybe?

Ok, I figured it out. The wires from the brake pedal switch pulled out and were shorting out on the exhaust. :(





I managed to hook them back up but probably need to solder the connections in order to get them to hold.

Yes. Seems to be working ok now though. I remember jamming a tree limb in that area now. :(

ANyone interested in a quick Danville ride tomorrow? Big bikes from my place or doing some exploring around Utica and such isn't out of the question either. I should be working, but I could be pretty easily coerced into riding motorcycles instead.

Can't be an all day affair, but I could spend 4 hours or so....

Ok, WRR is fixed and good to go now. Which do you want to do? Looks like it's just us anyway. ;) I've never been to Wayne and would like to check it out but heard ATVs are bad on weekends. I'll need to buy a pass too.

You decide and let me know when and where. Send me your cell number in a PM.

Maybe some lurkers will join us?

Just take all that brake light switch crap off. I took mine off when I bought my WR. On the street I use the front brake and off road who cares if you have a brake light?
