Another kl 600 project head thumper
Hey all. New to the forum hoping for some insight maybe into my new project. Just picked myself up a 85 kl600 not running and in a few pieces. Plastics look fairly decent and actually in over all good condition. Clutch lever was broke and front brake master cylinder was seized. All that was a piece of cake and not im getting stumped.
The wiring was messed with a bit (definatly not my strong suit to play with wiring) and the start/stop button was smashed and wrecked. So now im coming up with the task of re wiring that. I got myself a start/stop button combo off of a 08 klr 650 and figured id be able to wire that in. The harness from the 85 is a 5 wire harness and the harness from the 08 is a 4 wire. So I peeled the covers off so I could see where all the wires splice into each other and put the old connector on the new switch. But when I go to hit the go button, nothing. I have a good battery and lights and everything light up in the instrument cluster but nothing when I hit the start button. Wondering if this could be clutch lever safety switch or seomthing else. Starter turns when I jump the soloniod so I know its good. But absolutely nothing happens when I hit that go button. Any ideas? thanks in advance.
