I have a slight issue with my bike. I’m not running a battery or indicators. My horn work when on Tick over but as soon as I rev the bike the horn cuts out then comes back when revs drop back to tickover. Also my front light work fine and my brake light works fine but my tail light hardly lights up. The bulb works as I’ve tested it on a 12v battery. I’ve stripped all the wiring harness back and found no breaks. Any help.

Hi...What works properly if you hook a temporary decent battery up to the terminals ? I had a 1976 XL250 that electrics went odd with no battery on it..can't remember exactly what..too long ago...so maybe nothing amiss.

Hi...Memory has kicked in...Mine had three generator coils for the electrics..one for the headlight, another for the ignition and the other for charging the battery which all the other things ran off..ie rear lights, horn, indicators etc...and remember when the battery died all the little extra's went ! leaving me with just the headlight...
