As the title suggests my front and rear bulbs have no power. I have brake lights, the BMU light goes out as required when you tap both brakes. I have dash lights with the ignition in P or the light switch/key on. I have tested the blue/grey wire on th RHS connector under the tank and have power when the switch is on and the headlight is fine. Does anyone have a suggestion? I also pulled the BMU and cleaned the terminals

Fuse 2 is good and gets power when the ignition is in the P position and I now seem to have parkers too. But only in P, not off the switch with the key turned on. The dash lights still come on with switch but not the front and rear bulbs


After an afternoon of cleaning the RHS switch and chasing a tiny ball bearing that I never found (I USED A SMALL ROCK FROM THE SHEDS DIRT FLOOR) I have come to the conclusion that I should take power from the return (grey/blue or green blue, cant remember now) power wire for the RHS switch block under the tank, and run a new wire to the parkers. This leaves me with two questions. Has anyone got a better idea and will this affect the BMU, will the stupid warning light stay on?

clean up the under tank connector  that goes to that rhs switch assembly
could be corrosion on the connector leading back to the loom

the park position has an alternate supply to the parker lamps


whilst in there clean all the connections with electronic cleaner and deoxit

good luck

yeah its a bugga waiting for parts eh ?

it will be some while till i can order valve stem seals and new output shaft dampers rubber things ...THEN  a whole lot of things can be achieved ...giggles


hmm the wire grey blue would be the one … the parker light leaves the bmu as white grey
could there be a join issue issue somewhere in the harness ...that might be likely if the cables to the globe were shorted out at some stage ?

The PO half stripprd the bike to "cafe racer" it. He dropped the motor out and put it back in to sell it so he may have crushed the wiring harness somewhere.
