4. Install the oil level sensor in the oil pan.
Refill the engine with oil as described in
Chapter Three in the main body of this book.
HAZARD FLASHING SYSTEM
(U.S. AND CANADIAN MODELS)
U.S. and Canadian models are equipped
with a hazard flashing system that will cause
all of the turn signals to flash on and off.
A
hazard flasher relay that is separate from the
turn signal relay supplies currect for the
circuit. The ignition switch used on these
bikes is slightly different from models with no
hazard flashing system.
The hazard flashing system can only work
properly if the turn signals work properly, so
check the turn signal system first if problems
arise. Make sure all circuit connections are
clean and tight and that no wiring is damaged.
If problems persist, test the hazard flashing
system components as follows.
1. To test the hazard switch, unplug its
connector and connect an ohmmeter between
each of the 3 switch terminals in turn (3
readings in all). With the switch OFF, there
should not be continuity between any of the
terminals. With the switch ON, there should
be continuity between all terminals. Replace
the switch if the readings are not as specified.
2. To test the hazard relay, unplug its
connector and connect an ohmmeter between
its 2 terminals. The reading should be about
60 ohms. If there is less resistance than
specified or if there is infinite resistance,
replace the relay.
ELECTRONIC
TACHOMETERNOLTMETER
(KZ550-HI, F1 AND MI)
These models have an electrically operated
tachometer that also operates as a voltmeter
when the switch on the meter is depressed.
The meter operates on current pulses from
the primary winding of one of the ignition
coils.
If the ignition system is working properly
but the meter does not operate correctly,
make sure the meter mounting hardware is
secure and that the 4 rubber dampers are in
good condition. The mounting hardware is
beneath the meter assembly bottom cover. If
the problem still exists, remove the fairing,
headlight and meter bottom cover and
troubleshoot the system as follows. If neither
instrument function works or only the
voltmeter function works, start at Step 1. If
the tachometer function works but the
voltmeter function does not, start at Step 3.
1. Check that battery voltage is reaching the
meter:
Connect a voltmeter positive lead to the
brown wire terminal or connector
(Figure 58) on the back of the meter
assembly.
Connect the voltmeter negative lead to
the black/yellow wire terminal.
Turn the ignition ON.
If the meter does not read battery
voltage, the wiring between the meter
and the battery is defective.
2. Check that the engine speed signal is
reaching the meter:
Connect a voltmeter positive lead to the
brown wire terminal on the back of the
meter assembly.
Connect the voltmeter negative lead to
the black wire terminal on the back of
the meter assembly.
Turn the ignition O N without starting
the engine. The voltmeter should read
zero voltage.
