I need to correct something in the original post and then pose a question because I am at my wits end and stumped! First, from the original post and write up, the BLUE/WHITE wire is not a ground, it is a constant hot that connects to the BLACK/RED wire to the fuse box.

Now, I am trying to finish up an '03 Spirit chain drive and having some issues. I have cleaned the bars off eliminating the turn signals (not required by law in TN) as well as the on/off kill switch. I also eliminated the high/low beam switch as I will later be adding an HID as soon as I determine where to hide the ballast. I did not look at the wiring diagram first, but used my multimeter and found a constant hot BLACK/GREEN and wired tge head light to the BLUE high beam bulb. After the circuit warmed up it would pop the fuse and knock out just about everything on the bike. The owner brought it back yesterday so I could correct this issue.

I looked at the wiring diagram ( http://www.cycleterminal.com/wpimages/750ACE-Wiring.gif) and it appears the BLACK/GREEN was over loaded with the headlight as it powers just about everything else. The diagram shows the BLACK/RED coming out of the fuse box to the high/low switch providing power to the BLUE or WHITE depending on the position of the switch. So I corrected my oversite and wired the BLUE wire from the BLACK pin connector to the BLACK/RED from the GREEN pin connector. Now as soon as I turn the key on it pops the fuse.

I'm stumped! I do not understand how/why this is blowing the fuse. Unless I can determine that there is another solution, tomorrow I think I may wire it direct to the key switch.

Here is the bike...





Thoughts?

Sounds like you have a hot going to ground....look at your dimmer switch wire (the blue/white), look at all of the disconnected hots to see if you have one grounded to another of just grounded. It's either that or you have a hot that suffered thermal brakedown and is no longer carring a single amp and that's what's going to ground. Check the resistance of your individual wires. Or you have a burnt relay. Check resistance.

where did you buy your shorty risers????? I have been looking for a set like that. I want to buy those exact bars but dont want to have to change the stock cable so I have been looking for some shorter black risers.

thanks , looks awesome

McV, I think what I have found is that when I bypassed the high/low switch I bypassed the relay and that is the reason it is blowing the fuses. When I originally had it in the wrong circuit it was using the relay in that circuit and blowing the fuse once it built up amperage.

I will install a new relay and it should be fine.

Tevil, those are stock VLX or ACE risers. You will have to replace the clutch cable, it will be too short. The brake line and throttle cables are long enough. You can find a stock VLX clutch cable on ebay for probably $15. I was fortunate enough to have a stock cable laying around from installing some larger apes on a VLX.

EDIT: The risers are not black stock, I used epoxy appliance paint ($5 a can at your local Wal-Mart) and painted them.

Eliminating all the wires seemed to eliminate the stock headlight relay, I think this is the problem that CrimsonReign ran into with his set up as well. Note to self and all those that question McV for advice...listen to what he says and just do it even if you think there might be another way, when all is said and done it will be right if you just follow his advice.

I contacted McV Sunday night about my issue and his advice was to run a new wire and circuit because of the draw of the headlight...guess what I ended up doing last night...yep, running a new circuit.

Ran an inline fused (30A) hot wire from the battery to an off road light relay that I could tuck into the stock bucket ($4.99 at O'Riley's), attached the ground to the turn signal ground that is now not being used. Used the other connection to ground the headlight. Used the BLACK/RED that the wiring diagram shows as switch power to the headlight as the switch hot for the relay and then one line out to the headlight.

Now this is funny now, but was NOT funny when it happened. I get the new circuit ran and plug it in and the headlight comes on and then goes right out...WHAT THE *%#@! Stopped to eat dinner because I was really frustrated now. I have 4 bikes tore apart in the garage right now so after dinner I grabbed an H4 bulb out of one of the VLX's and plugged it in. I suppose I might have touched the lamp and got some oil from my grubby hands on it causing it to blow, but what a coincidence. Worked fine.

Owner came and picked it up last night and went for a 60 mile ride, it was good to go. I was working hard to get the bike to him because he is a fireman and is prospecting for the Lawful Son's here in Memphis and today he went on probably a 200 mile run providing transportation escort for the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall. He reported back that it worked like a champ and the bike was awesome!

Here is a before and after...crude, these are his pics. I did this bike in stages, we still have a few little things we are going to do like powder coat the wheels red and put whitewall shoes on her this winter some time.

I've got to get a better before pic, you should have seen the size of the dent on that thing, right side of tank looked like Thor dropped his hammer on it.

Crzy, the owner still has the seat and he's going to sell it. If you're interested send me an offer and I'll tell him you want it.

would this wiring be the same for a VLX? I assume honda's wire colors are all the same throughout the shadows....

One day i have tried with two friend to play SW in LAN with Dukonnector...But one players cannot join the game....

I understand this when i see "P2P : 2Players only" and master/slave not supported...

So we cannot play with more than two players on SW?
