Ignition Switch and Light problems.
Greetings All, Just bought a 1986 750 Vulcan, Really like the bike, in the process of restoreing it back some, runs great, my problem is I noticed the Ignition would not go into lock, just off, everything else worked fine. Put some wd-40 into key hole, still not able to push key down and get into lock, Decided to remove ignition switch and worked and cleaned key lock until it was freely moveing, Put the Ignition wire part back on and replaced it and now the Tail light comes on when in lock position and headlight no longer comes on. Still runs great, also another problem that prior owner had was overheating, The fan only came on for a short time and then cut off so I installed a toggle switch to ground, at the radiator fan temp wirep plug, that works great but I think it is a related problem.
Would like some advice from minds smarter than mine on this issue.
I think that electric ignition module on the bottom of the key lock is bad.
Not sure how to prove that. And why is the wires soldered and not a plug, in play there.
