Do your brake lights function correctly? A no answer should point you towards the source of the issue, hopefully.Good luck


I just spent a few minutes looking at the wiring diagram and don't see any connection between the two circuits (it is possible I missed it though).

Also I have an SE in the shop that is low on fuel so the light is lit. When I pull the brake light fuse, the low fuel indicator stays lit. The only fuse when pulled that makes the indicator go out is the ignition fuse, but that deadens the whole bike.

Our rear indicators playing up appears to be fixed, after disconnecting and reconnecting, cleaning etc it appears a skunky earth was the problem but still not clear which one made the difference.

Thanks to all who helped, x fingers it stays good, if it reoccurs I will add an earth wire to the rear

On the low fuel sensor issues... is the light not coming on and you are running out of fuel?

To test whether it's a sensor issue or bike side issue... unplug the connector by the horn and jumper it. Then turn on the key,,,, the low fuel light and the F odo should be on. If that test works, then its the sensor.

Be aware the light won't go right out after unjumpering.

Yes, ran out of fuel without the light coming on. The speedo doesn't cycle through the functions at all. The odometer is the only mode that will show. Also, no brake light with front or rear levers.

I'm away from the bike until tomorrow evening, I'll try the jumper then.
Thanks

Heya guys

Ok, having a bad week, indicators still going now horn has gone on holiday.

Checked the power with our test light, this is what we came up with

With the key off no power, cool.

With key on power to blue and yellow wire (not pushing horn button)

With key on, push horn button both blue/yelow AND grey have power.

Checked the wiring diagram, traced the system through as far as I could, can't see chafes or anything ... I am stumped.

I am not electrical engineer but logic forms a pretty good picture however I can't grasp this.

Anyone else had something similar or the same?

Cheers gents

Morning gents

Ok, this morning I removed and carefully cleaned all the terminals and contacts in the left bar switch.

Not sure what fixed it other than the clean, we were parked at the sea front for five days and this coincides with the horns stopping working, we did have a foggy night which may have contributed to this carting in some salty moisture? although Maya was covered.

All good now, seems a simple clean sorted this out

Rear indicator problem reappeared lat night so will add an earth wire and see how this works.

From the wiring diagram, it appears the two green spliced wires go to earth/ground. I'll try to confirm for you later today when I get out to my bike.

Yes they go to the negative battery terminal.

Bought a second hand wolfman rack. Need to go get hardware since it didn't come with any. Before I go try to find bolts that fit the tail I was thinking of getting a tailrack too. What is a good cheap one just to give a mounting point? What do yall have? Function over Form.

Don't know about cheap, but the Black Dog on my bike has been upside down a couple of times and has come out of the adventures just fine. Came with the proper bolts and spacers, too.

Easy And short question,

Anybody knows where they still sell wolfman side racks for the se? Wolfman has discontinued theirs and the rest of the racks are just plain ugly! (yes I like to travell in style )

Regards,
Jarno

You mean the rack that take the wolfman bags?

If so they were made by Berg an inmate here, you could ask him direct. Also try http://www.windingroads.co.uk/ he might have stock left.
