Re: The DR/DRZ Thread

Thanks Marc_B that is a nice little bike. Used to drool over those back in the day. I had a 1971 TS90 Honcho

I did just go out into the lab and remove speedo light (in case they were associated somehow), but no luck on fixing the issue.

I guess I should remove the fairing and check if any wires are chafing on the nav tower?

Re: The DR/DRZ Thread

Ok- figured it out. Although I had pulled the dash bulb out of the socket, the two wires inside the socket had vibrated to where they they were touching, thus completing that connection/circuit. I cut a small piece of rubber and jammed it in the socket to prevent the wires from making connection.

Thanks JT for the assist- and missed y'all yesterday!

Re: The DR/DRZ Thread

TMTaco, you got any more pictures/info on your headlight/fairing setup there? Looks different.

Any particular reason you don't want to add a simple diode to each side of the circuit and retain the dash indicator light?

I bought a pack of 25 diodes last Dec (I needed two, but came in a 25 strip) the 23 remaining is a life time supply for me, send you two in an envelope is you want?

I make these- they're a universal fit for most dual sports.

My web store is down right now (switching hosting companies), or i'd provide a link. PM me for further info if you wish.

I will add two dash turn indicators, just waiting for USB socket port to come in to have everything before finishing the dash. Attached pic is from a different bike.

I just gotta say though: I love the community here on TWT! That gesture is so kind and appreciated!
