Hi everybody, i need a little help with an electrical issue. I have a 1980 R100RT that I recently purchased In a very well used condition, and the last few weeks I have been pulling it apart and going through all the basics as per my Clymer and Mr. Snobum.
The battery was disconnected during the mini refit.
I reconnected Battery today , Ignition switch on , I get the red and yellow but No green neutral light and nothing on the start button.
The things I did that can have had some influence are - I took the entire fairing off which included some wiring of course,
I changed the handle bars and throttle assembly, kept the same stop /run switch and start button
I moved the front brake cylinder to the handlebars from under the tank,
I fitted a new ignition switch and key
So now I am working out how best to go through a logical electrical fault finding procedure on the starting system
I have taken the top cover off to expose the starter and stared at it. ( no result )
Would the neutral switch interrupt the starter control circuit?
I have checked the two major in line fuses at the battery end.
As I say I have no green light and I cant see how the neutral switch works to check it.
I am going to start wading through my wiring diagrams and snobums electrics , but if anyone can help I would be most grateful , thanks Steve Heed
