I looked over the wires and didn't see anything unusual. I didn't dig real deep into it. I took the switch box off of the handle bars and everything looked good there.
Okay, got the new flasher. Right side still works, and it fires faster than with the old one. Left side still doesn't work, but the light on the cluster blinks instead. Anybody have any thoughts on that? Also I found nothing with the tail/brake. So if anyone has suggestions on that also, it would be appreciated.
Nevermind about the switch fellas, got it all figured out. Got it mounted back in the cluster and works as it should. Now just waiting for the flasher relay, then gotta find what's wrong with the tail/brake light, get a new headlight, tag it and we are road worthy. Thanks guys!
So I took that white plastic piece off that the key turns to make contact, and now I can't get it to go back how I had it. Battery is good, fuse is good, all the wires are good. If I start it, and put the plastic piece back on, it will kill it. Which it only does that when the contact hits the two gray wires that are soldered to one contact. I took the tumblers out and it will turn with no ke
Update, I turned the white plastic piece a littler further to where the oil light was still on and it fired up. I put in a new brake light and nothing. So I think I just need to get an ignition cylinder with a key and a blinker relay, because it doesn't click with the side not working. I'll look into the brake issue later tonight.
I got some pictures of how the ignition is wired in behind the head light. Ignition is the loom on the right from the two that come in from the driver side of the light. And also how I took the cylinder apart to make the connection like I had a key. On my way to the parts store to see if they have bulbs.
I believe it's a two position. From what I've read I think the kill switch is black/red? I'm not sure. I don't think I can have the cylinder flipped. It just has three contacts in a triangle opposed from each other on each side.
The battery is brand new and fully charged. I took the old ignition cylinder out and replaced it with a new one, connected back the same. If it's in the off position it starts right up. I took apart the cylinder and put the part that turns to the terminals how it would be with the key in the on/run position. The working turn signal lit up then, but I went to kick start it and nothing. So my m
I'll take all the bulbs out and check. The ones I did check seemed fine but I will get all new 6 volt bulbs. The right signal didn't even blink, just lit up the bulb on the cluster. I'm still not sure why it wouldn't start with the ignition on. As soon as I unhook it, it starts on the first kick.I've heard those headlights are expensive. I saw there is a way to bust out th
Most of the forums I've searched are pretty old, but I'm going to give this a shot.I bought a running 79 QT50 a couple weeks ago. Guy didn't have a key for the ignition, a title, or a battery; which I still have to figure out the title issue, but I test drove it and we made a deal. I'm completely new to mopeds but the forums have helped me out so far.So my issue is, when I got
