TechTalk / Re: Clunking in forks / steering
« Last post by briandneville on April 11, 2021, 11:07:54 PM »
Well, the problem is now gone.  After reassembling the forks, new oil, seals etc..., rebuilding and reinstalling calipers (not stock Vision parts), and re-torquing the steering column, the clunk is gone.  Seems the likely source was the steering head, for which tightening is more art than science.   I also put new tires on the bike, Avon Roadrider MKIIs, which were kind of pricey but do have a noticeably better feel than the 10 year old Shinkos that were on it.

Mission accomplished!  For now...

Thanks for the help.  That bundle with the grey wire had been covered up so the colour is definitely grey. Maybe a Canadian model difference. I'll look for another wiring diagram .  Have to find another positive connector for the battery and solenoid.

Sorry for the crickets, I really would like to help but am pressed for time.  Do get a manual that has wiring diagrams and I think you can figure a lot out on your own.  MY manual (Haynes I think) has several diagrams for the different models and between them you can figure out what you have.

For example, on my 1983 RK there are unused blue/red and black wires up front that are not on the RK schematic but are on the German model schematic.  My guess is the main harness is all the same, it saves $$$ not having to manage different versions in production.

There should be three wires in a small sub-loom.  Item 21 in the picture.  The two you show, plus a black that goes onto a screw on the aluminium joint (11H-12479-00)
These go to a T-shaped connector.  A corresponding T-shaped connector comes from the main loom  and corresponding colours, Black, Blue/Red, Green/Red

Pic 2
The red shroud covers a red fly lead which is part of the cable that connects the battery to the starter solenoid.  It connects to a single connector in the loom that carries current to the main fuse.
Item 12 in the picture

The Blue is probably the Neutral switch, but blue is also used for the licence plate light, the fan, and some of the handlebar switches and meter lights.
If I'm right it connects to a sky blue on the loom

Hard to tell from the pic.  Can you check all the colours make sure there aren't any hidden stripes -

Is the wiring harness original, modified, or ?  Frame number has coded info for the area the bike was originally sold, and the wiring is designed for specific requirements of that area (special switches, lights, etc.).  So you need a wiring diagram for that specific model.  Also, as time has passed some wire insulation may have experienced color fading or discoloration.  You might have to peel back some of the sheath to expose areas untouched by light and protected from dirt and other contaminants.   :police:

lolol I think they are just trying to make sure that there is no way they get a bad reputation. Fair enough - even though that might cost them more than they make in a small percentage of cases.

By the look of it you could start your OWN internet shop selling all that extra stuff they sent you! Do 'em a favour and give 'em a 5/5. :-)

Yeah they went above and beyond. I also got the free accessories pack today which comes with all the mounts I did not have. Chest mount, arm and wrist mounts, underwater bobber etc. Kind of makes me wonder A) how they made money and B) what version are they using in china?

That link is for the starter clutch, not the starter. It is shown at the lower left, but only for reference.

Be prepared to loose a good bit of oil as the starter sits below the oil level. The seal can be had from any bearing supply house. Just need the measurements with id and od the most important. the width can vary some.
