Indicators on a 1990 Tenere 3AJ
I've been lurking on the HUBB for a while trying to decide which bike to buy and i've finally bought myself a 1990 XT 600 Tenere 3AJ. The idea is to get it mot'd, use it through winter, then a rebuild in the spring, and possibly a rtw trip after that. It was bought off ebay and I had to travel down from Scotland to Birmingham to get it, which took about 12 hours on Friday. Typically on the first corner the bike fell over, but after some readjustment was fine for the rest of the trip, and no damage was done.
I got home at almost 2am so left the bike in the van overnight, as i had been pndering how i was going to get it out when i have no ramp, or handy plank like the guy i bought it from. Fortunately where i live in Bathgate is still under construction so i chose the highest kerb i could find which meant parking the van diagonally across a junction, then sitting a pallet at the rear doors to make an easier step down. Luckily the road is very quiet. At this point i realised that i couldn't undo the ratchet straps so i had to run home, get a pair of scissors as a last resort, and a socket set. I managed to undo the bolts holding the eyes in the floor of the van so it saved me cutting the straps. After that the bike came out easy, i was surprised to find it so much easier and lighter to move than my CBF1000, despite the extra height.
I've read through all 85 pages of the Yamaha section and managed to find an owners manual to download, but i've not been able to find a working link for a workshop manual. Could anyone point me in the direction of one please? I'll try a Yamaha dealer tomorrow in the hope they have one but i'm doubtful.
The bike is complete, but looks a little rough, most of the fairing bolts seem to be missing but that should be an easy fix. More pressing problmes are the indicators do not work, neither does the speedo, nor the tacho, and all the dash lights except for the high beam indicator.
I've found and replaced the fuse, and taken apart the switch box on the handlebar to check for loose connections, but nothing so far. I've ordered a flasher unit in case it's that, and it'll let me test out how one of the online parts places are. If it's not that does anyone have any idea's what it may be?
I'll try to add a pic when i've cleaned the bike up, the colour is a deep blue so not like the normal pale blue and yellow these bikes mostly seem to be.
