    Default Name That Wire!

    Found these wires and not sure what they’re job is:

    A) Orange/Green Tracer
    B) Yellow/Black Tracer
    C) Orange/White Tracer
    D) Orange/Red Tracer
    E) Yellow/Blue Tracer

    if you know of a form or list of wires that exceeds the diagram that would be great. Any help is appreciated!

    Where did you find these wires? In a box? Out on the road? Somewhere on your bike?

    A) SIGNALS. From the fuse to the brake lights, turn signals, horn and warning lights (low oil, etc.)
    B) Fuel sending unit. Runs between the connector for the tank and the fuel gauge.
    C) IGNITION. From fuse to 'kill' switch, then to starter button and coils.
    D) LIGHTS. From fuse to headlight, tail light and instrument lights.
    E) You sure it's a BLUE tracer? There is a yellow/green wire from the starter button to the solenoid.

    That is why it would be nice to know where you found these wires.

    There are these things called "wiring diagrams". Get one off basscliff's site and open it and find your colors. It ain't rocket science.

    I looked all over the wiring diagram for your bike and did not see a yellow/blue wire. I think Steve got the rest of them, but it would still help to know where you saw these wires. Even better than a location, would be whether it was in a connector with some other wires, and what their colors are.
    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
