Hey, I got your message. Yeah we can help you. What are you looking for? Won't be going the Facebook route, this will prove way better. Is that a 750 or a 1100?

Most of us old farts don’t FB. I for one, do not. The why has nothing to do with techno phobia and is a discussion for another time and thread.

However, some of us actually worked professionally as mechanics and have decades of experience with electrical systems. Some of us have even been to school for the job and have formal classes in electrical diagnostics.

We can help, but only with accurate information.

OK. Check your fuses, there should be a fuse at the starter relay under the battery box. It may be the culprit. Also check your battery voltage and grounds.

The oil light will be on until the engine is running. When the engine is off there is no oil pressure and the light will be on as it should.

Follow the big wire from the battery area to the starter relay. Starter relay should be mounted under the battery box. There should be a 30A fuse there. I suspect that may be the issue.

I can post a pic when I get home later tonight. There is a video in my thread. I will try to dig it up for you.

a 30 amp fuse on the relay itself?

Trying to remember now. I think it is actuall an inline fuse on the wire going to the relay.

Also. See the videos below. I relocated the CDI from the side ofr the battery box to on top the air box under the tank. WAY easier to get in and out and less cramming the wires in to make everything fit. Do you have a servfice manual? It has the routing diagram for the harness so you can have it in the right spot. Will fit WAY better and will match the support tabs properly.

Put your volt meter on continuity - so it beeps when the probes are touched together.

Touch both prongs. It should beep.

It should be good. It is an auto-reset circuit breaker.

What do you mean "clock" the starter? It is turning backwards?
