Stop light problem

Trevor Fladwood /

Quick question to make sure I'm not missing something dumb.. I can't get my stop signal to work on a puch, but my tail light works fine. That would mean my power and ground to the tail are fine, and the problem is in the wires from the brake handles, right?

Thanks!

The brake lights run on a separate circuit from the tail light. The green wire feeds power to the brake switches, which grounds the power to the frame when you are not touching the handles. When you pull the brakes it breaks that circuit, forcing the power from the stator to flow through the green/black wire to the tail light bulb.

The grey wire going to your tail light is for your regular tail light.

yea separate wiring. is the bulb OK even? i love the little light-up circuit tested for figuring out where power is or isn't and when - like checking signal switches. theyre like 3-5 bucks at any carparts place

Thanks, I will have to do some more checking. It is frustrating when you have new wiring and the colors are all different!

Thanks for the info though, at least I know what to look for.

Start at the stator , record new colors , old wiring will still be good if you update it.
