(3}Hazard Relay Inspection:
-To
gain access to the hazard relay, remove the tool
tray, battery, and main switch cover.
-Disconnect
the hazard relay leads and check the
resistance between the
relay
terminals.
There
should be about 60n.
If there is no ohmmeter
reading, or if there is zero ohms resistance, replace
the relay with a new one.

TAIL/BRAKE LIGHT
The tail/brake light circuit is shown in Fig. K70 and
K71.
This motorcycle contains two
tail/brake
lights which
are connected in parallel for a safety device. When one
filament burns out, the other one continues to work.
When the main switch and
ignition
switch are turned
on, the brake light go on whenever the circuit is closed
by either the front or rear brake light switch.
When the main switch is turned to
"Park"
position,
the tail lights go on. For the US and Canadian models,
the tail lights go on also when the main switch and
ignition switch are turned on. For the European model,
they go on when the main switch, ignition switch and
headlight switch are turned on.
The same bulbs are used for both the brake and tail
lights.
The front brake light switch is a pressure switch
installed in the brake fluid line, and is operated by
fluid pressure when the brake lever is pulled.
The
rear brake light switch is a plunger type switch
ac-
tuated by a spring attached to the rear brake pedal.
The front and rear brake light switches never require
adjustment and so are not designed to be adjusted.
They cannot be disassembled for repair and must be
replaced
when
defective.
Tail/brake light circuit in-
spection involves the tail/brake lights, the
front
brake
light switch, rear brake light switch, and wiring.
Tail/brake light trouble
If one or both of the two tail/brake lights does (do)
not go on when the circuit is closed, the filament(s)
is (are) probably burned
out.
However if the bulbs are
good, check the fuses, wiring, main switch, ignition
switch, battery, front brake light switch, rear brake
light switch, and wiring.
Front brake light switch inspection
-Disconnect
the front brake light switch leads from
the switch.
-Set
an ohmmeter to the x 1
n
range, connect the
meter to the switch terminals, and determine whether
or not there is continuity whenever the front brake
lever is squeezed.
If there is no continuity, replace
the switch (See Pg. 127).
