Head and Tail lights dont work

Recommended Posts

So I have a 2002 Yamaha Banshee with no key or battery. The lights have been hooked up to the Stater (stater, not starter) and the dont work. Neither does the brake light. Any tips or pointers?

Has to be running. If so, the bulbs could be blown if the regulator is bad, not connected,  or not bolted down tight to a clean bare metal.

I'm guessing that it's the bulbs because all the wires are connected to the stater but the lights are not giving juice so it must not be bolted to the clean bare metal

just some info dump here.

 OEM banshees dont have battery's,  never have.  They power everything off of the stater,  the stater has a coil for spark, and one for the light circut.  This being said it has to be running for the lights to work,  You also need to have a voltage regulator,  normally it is mounted to the frame on the back of the subframe, by the CDI box.  IF not, the stater can put out too much power when you rev it and blow all the bulbs.   

 

Only time you will see a Bat on a banshee is when someone put a DC conversion kit on, so they can have more power for a LED light bar, or to try some fuel injection stuff etc.

All rights thanks for the info but I found the problem. Behing the lights are the adapters to the wires (duh) and none of the wires are connected. So I found the problem. Thanks guys. I'm also looking for some LED lights so if there are any recommendations please let me know. Thanks

You are going to need to do a DC conversion to make LEDs work properly and last. Banshees make AC power. Google Banshee DC conversion to get the info you need.
