    Fuel switch

    Looking around on Youtube and clicked on this. Nothing much to see until at 9:15 on the video it shows the fuel on/ res. switch and this one is a lights- on, off and po (parking only?) Very strange, I noticed the speedo is in mph, so not sure what the deal is. Any body got any idea on this...

    Switch block paint flaking, stickers??

    I have a 1989 bike that is in great condition however both right and left switch block controls are flaking their paint. Obviously painting them black is no issue, however the small writing is going to be lost... as the lettering no is not “indented” it seems to have been printed on... Has...

    Manual Fan Switch Connection

    With summer stop-and-go riding upon us, I would like to install a manual override switch for the cooling fans. I have a Gen 1 '99. However, I have searched the forum and watched videos, but there's no description or pictures of where you find the two wires to splice in the switch. This was the...

    Ignition switch question.

    Zilla has had this goofy quirk for a while now. Bike starts instantly. Runs fine. However when doing a cold start, and start riding, the bike cuts out just for a fraction of a second when you let off the gas, pull in the clutch, or hit a bump. After about 1/4 mile, it stops, and the bike works...

    Digisync headlight smart switch won't fit

    I bought a smart switch and hooked it all up, with the relay in the headlight bucket, I can't get the headlight back in. The wires between the switch and headlight are short and I can't move it around very much to get clearance. Anyone have the smart switch? How did you make it fit? Is there a...

    Vboost - toggle switch

    I bought another Vmax. The previous owner wired a toggle switch for the VBoost. I believe it puts in on all the time. My question is, when the toggle switch is off...does that mean VBoost is off all the time or will it work like factory stock? Sore, not much of an electrical guru.

    V boost - toggle switch

    Got another Vmax. The previous owner wired a toggle switch for the Vboost. I believe it put on the V boost all the time or at least at the lower RPM. I would like the VBoost to operate like factory stock. Do you think I can just leave the toggle switch in the off position? Or, would that...

    Does anyone with a Gen 2 know of fan switch bypass

    Does anyone with a Gen 2 know of a good tutorial for making a fan bypass switch for both fans. I had one on my 2007 but that bike only had 1 fan, the Gen 2 has 2 fans as far as I know. I would assume a bypass could be done to have both fans linked to one bypass switch. I've got my bike apart...

    Cable Clutch Master Cylinder switch help

    Anyone familiar with newer cable clutch microswitches on newer bikes? Like this? Been told there is a Yamaha version. How does it work? Is there something on the lever to push on the switch internally? Anyone have one of these set ups?

    Problem with Ignition Switch

    Hi all, Just got my 1991 all fixed up and running great.... then my ignition switch just broke. It will only work if I turn the key then turn it backwards a bit. But if the key moves slightly forward it goes off again. I feel like there is a contact issue inside the switch. I am concerned...

    Turn Signal Switch Maintenance

    My signal switch has been very hard to push (to cancel the signal). I shot some dry graphite into it, but that didn't help. So I took it apart and shot contact cleaner into all the moving parts. Then blew it out with my air compressor, and re-applied some graphite. WOW, what a difference! Only...
