    Dominator / FMX
    My indicators pack up when it rains. The lights come on but don’t flash. Same whether left or right is selected. All bulbs working ok. I’m no electrician and wouldn’t know how to use a meter to trace a fault. But given that all four bulbs work, the problem occurs on both sides and the switch...

  11. 6v ac lighting question xl500s

    So my 81 xl500 has 6v AC direct unregulated lighting. Am I correct in thinking Ineed all the correct wattage bulbs to effectively provide some kind of regulation? With just the headlight bulb and tail light the tail glows really bright and soon fails. I see in the wiring diagram there is another...

    Some of the bulbs have blown and I'm considering replacong them with LEDs - which enables me to pick a colour. I'm aware that red is least detrimental to night vision but is also one of the hardest colours for seeing details. For those of you who went down the coloured road, what colour did...

    I'm quiet keen to change out some of the bulbs on my old XL 250, to LEDs, so have any of you guys and girls had any success with this?, I'm thinking I may have to make the LED clusters my self from scratch, the only light I will not mess with is the Head light, though I did see a You Tube clip...
