The least important stuff always arrives in the mail first.
As mentioned there were three identified electrical related issues with this bike. The rear brake light cover was smashed, the indicators didn’t flash and the front brake switch didn’t trigger the brake light.
In the mail today was a replacement cover for the brake light and a new relay for the indicators. Kinda handy really as I’m working tonight and don’t have a lot of time, but a few minutes in the garage saw the new relay plugged in and working, and the brake light cover replaced (total cost of both parts shipped came to $50CDN – almost half of that was shipping).
This was a so-so item on the list. I wasn’t sure if I was keeping the stock brake light arrangement, but figured what the heck as I was already ordering the relay and the brake light cover was $12.
I’ve disassembled the front headlight/kill switch/brake lever assembly and have not quite figured out what the hell I’m looking at. So at this point that remains the sole remaining “known” issue with the electrical.
(Chrome cleaned up nice back there, didn’t it?)
More updates as they’re available.
