SUPPLEMENT
starter lockout switch as described in this
supplement. If these parts and systems are
okay, check the starter circuit relay as
described in this section.
6. Reconnect the starter relay connector.
Install the left-hand side cover.
Starter Circuit Relay Testing
1. Remove the left-hand side cover.
2. Disconnect and remove the starter circuit
relay (Figure
51).
3. Connect an ohmmeter and a 12 volt
battery to the starter circuit relay connector as
shown in Figure
52.
4. Interpret results as follows:
a. With the battery connected, the reading
should be 0 ohms.
b. With the battery disconnected, the
reading should be infinite.
5. If the starter circuit relay failed the tests in
Step 4, it should be replaced.
LIGHTING SYSTEM
Front Brake Light
Switch Replacement
The KZ550-H1,
F1
and M1 front brake
light switch is secured with a single screw
(Figure 53). Use Loctite Lock N' Seal on the
screw when installing the switch.
Brake Light Failure Switch
The KZ550-C3 and H1 models do not have
this switch and warning light circuit. Instead,
these models have two dual-filament bulbs
for brakehaillights; the bulbs are wired in
parallel so that one will continue to bum even
if the other is not operating.
FUEL LEVEL SENSOR
(KZ550-C3)
An additional solid-state unit in the fuel
level warning system automatically turns on
the warning light for 3 seconds after the
ignition switch is turned ON. If the system
does not operate properly, check battery
condition and charge and make sure all
system wiring connections are clean and tight.
If the trouble still exists, troubleshoot as
follows.

1. If the warning light does not come on for
about 3 seconds after the ignition switch is
turned on:
a. Replace the bulb.
b. Remove the right-hand side cover and
disconnect the 3-pin connector from the
self-checking unit. Connect a voltmeter
positive lead to the b~own wire terminal
on the harness side of the connector and
the voltmeter negative lead to the
black/yellow wire terminal on the
harness side of the connector. Turn the
ignition switch ON. If the meter does
not indicate battery voltage, the wiring
harness is defective.
