I'm Steve, hailing from London Uk, just picked up a sickly TW125 to breathe back some life into it, and get back on two wheels after years away from bikes.
The bike is generally ok, looks like it's covered around 16k kilometres, has some surface rust on frame, but doesn't currently fire up.
Yesterday I started to pull it apart, to look at the electrical side of things. (Battery given a good long charge on my ctek, and holding a good charge a week later).i may change battery later, but was hoping to see some life in lights or panel/horn first.
Found some horrible, poorly executed bullet connectors, (for r/h switches).
Side stand switch has been cut, and wires twisted together.... (What should that switch be when stand down - open circuit? - closed to run?)
When battery connected, there are no lights, no horn, so I'm going to have to go through it all.........are there any fuses apart from the two on the solenoid in r/h side?
If anyone has any links to wiring diagrams, location charts, or "how to test component" info that would be great.
FYI - no Kickstarter on uk models, so I need to get it 'on the button'
Think I'll try get it running before I worry about making it pretty, .....though I've dismantled all panels and already cleaned and hammerite painted the rear subframe.
Thanks in advance
