ignition switch and a loom problem
hi. just bought the vn 700 1989. its been laid up for couple of year. so bought as non runner... No prob new fuel
press starter hey presto... No such luck.
so been on the forum looking for as much info as i can get.
Basically the prob is no spark.
was a spark, and it fired up. then cut out, fired up again then cut out, and has now gave up the ghost...
opened the loom (wire harness) up and going through all the wire stuff with metre. mostly guess work...
m8 came up who's a little bit handier and checked the ohms on pik up etc. scratched head had a coffe then went home
Anyway a new prob has arose.
ignition switch on. yb wire on the loom shows 12volts. turn ignition off and i get continuety (buzzing sound from metre)
to frame. as i would expect, earth.
so i disconected the ignition bit from the loom and took it apart, looks ok, cleaned terminals
and put backtogether. no luck.
if i disconect the block bit on the ignition lead and leave the two seprate wires in, the voltage jumps
from 1 to 5 volts on the
Is my ignition switch caput? they look basic so what goes wrong.
wired wrong somwhere in the loom?
somthing else burnt out and causing this?[/B]
other than this be a good bike wen it gans...
any help be greatly appreciated...
