Headlight and Turn Signal Issues

Postby eliastjordan » Sun Feb 11, 2018 11:48 pm

Hi there!

2005 YZF600r with about 9k miles on it in the US.

recently I took my bike in and they corrected a problem where the signals were shorting out due to a bad connection. They fixed it, however after my bike was returned, all 4 turn indicator lights were off. they will signal properly when I turn on a turn indication, but they are no longer illuminated when the bike is on (aka they aren't on as running lights). Additionally, my headlight no longer works. The high and low beam will not work and my high beam indicator also does not work.

Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!

Check fuses first. Start with the easy stuff first.

UPDATE:
While looking at the wiring schematic posted all over this forum for US YZF600r's, It looks like the headlight and front turn signals are connected in some way. I know very little about electronics and wiring, but would something wrong with the running lights be effecting the headlight? the mechanic was very adamant that they were on different systems and they never crossed, but looking at this diagram (http://www.yzf600r-usa.com/maintenance/ ... iagram.jpg) I see a black dot connecting the front turn signals/running lights to the headlight. Does that black dot indicate a connecting in the system, and if so, could a problem in one of them cause another problem in the other?

thanks.

Riceburner is correct. The headlight will continue on if the blinkers are disconnected. Similarly, you could unplug your headlight, and the running lights of the blinkers would continue.
