I'm searching for a good wiring diagram for my 1987 KZ1000-P6, something better than this one at Cycle Psycho , which is just a scan of the one in the cop bike supplement.

The harness on my bike is in really bad shape, so I got one from a '93 model and that one turned out to have been hacked up quite a bit (17 cut wires!). I figure I can graft the two together, and it'd be easier if I had a decent color schematic...

I can't get to Facebook at work, but I can see photos here.

That diagram looks pretty good, even though it's black and white. If you are asking about that secondary thing labeled "rectifier", it's not really a rectifier. It's more of a logic gate.

It let's the rear turn signals act as hazards and turn signals without a lot of complicated switches.

Huh, okay... I can see that I'm going to have to change a few things around.

Stay tuned, Lou, as I'm certain to be picking your brain soon!

until you compare it to the actual harness. Some stuff matches up, some doesn't.

Tonight, I figured out that I'm going to have to clear off the dining room table and dissect this harness, excise the stuff I don't need (mysterious logic circuits and extra rectifiers have got to go).
It's the most complex motorcycle electrical system I've ever had to mess with, even worse than the Seca Turbo, but it still beats working on modern guitar amps.

Sorta...



My grip heaters have a low/high option, so I want to use this switch to operate them.
I'll use the siren switch to run the extra lights up front.
I think I'm going to run two horns... a wimpy stock horn and an obnoxious loud horn. Use them for different situations, 'cause sometimes you only want a little beep. Pulling on the horn button used to to make the siren yelp, I'll use it for the little horn, and push for the big one. I picked up a Freeway Blaster knock off at Harbor Freight, a WOLO Bad Boy. It was just a few bucks, we'll see how it holds up...
