Sachs Wiring

Hi everyone,

So the rebuild of my 1978 Sparta conitinues, it's almost done! I have a question about the wiring which, like all other things, I'm lerning about as I go. I would like to get rid of the big bulky control box on the right side of the handle bar. It has switches for the lights saying "on/off" and "high/low" as well as the horn and the flashers. I was wondering if I could simply follow the wires into the light (where there is a wiring harness) and just disconnect them or if that will screw things up. Bascically I just want the headlight and the rear light to be on all the time and the brake light to work. Any thoughts?

Re: Sachs Wiring

If I remember correctly, starting from the switch, take the brown(black?), yellow, and white wires (3 of the 5, I believe), and cut them about 5 inches before they go into the harness. Take a wire cap nut, or similar electrical connector, and connect all 3 of these wires together. Then you will always a have a headlight and tailight. I think the other 2 wires can be removed. But double check where they go first. If there's a red(purple?) one it goes to the horn, and is all but useless. The last one may be the 'flasher' button, if it is, it's also useless.

Does that sound right?

Double check you're wiring and get back to me before you start cutting shit off. You can also call me if you need any more info. I'm a Sparta/Foxi expert.
