hi 1stCAVREG and all!
I'm back with news (well... facts)!
by the way... I'm here on this board, instead that privately, because I definetily think that sharing troubles could help another reader...
ok. made tests. but, first of all:
Go over the ignition switch and all the terminals to make sure terminals that should not touch are indeed not touching. Its a tight space up there.
yes, I did my job... as I'm sure that I'm suffering (my bike is suffering...
) more than a single trouble...
I dismantled the switch, cleaned it again, checked continuity...I checked every single wire, and proper working of every single lamp...and I found:
- switch was forced (probably with people that registered the bike and possibly when officials tested the lights) together with the instrument lamp knoble... I changed sw with a NOS keyed one (not 100% correct for a type V, but much safer thinking about people crawling around the bike...);
- when front blackout cover was changed for registering issues, the screw was driven against the negative of the lamp;
- contacts were anyway tightened and cheked for isolation.
First test the generator lamp will turn on and off at the relay end of the lamp wire with the relay removed
good. made it and it worked
Test the relay's ability to function the generator lamp
here I had some more trouble. with an electronic relay, it was a mess (probably, the relay has gone).
I then continued the test with my original one... and here too lamp didn't work... as circuit is basic
, I x-checked the thin spring, and I just strengthened it. so, I managed it to work properly.
I cleaned also upper and lower points again.
test continued with all generator wires back to their position (the preceding tests were done with generator isolated as instructed)...
... AND HERE ARE STARTING THE PROBLEMS!
probably, I should say, the ORIGINAL problem, as now the gen light is working properly... IN ALL BUT IN THE HEADLIGHT POSITION!there, the light goes out, as the lower points CLOSE!
so... at the end I'm back to the original troubles... and I'm starting to think that the "headlight" part of the gen is short circuited.
what do you think?
