Haynes Manual

PostAuthor: Gabhaire » Mon Jan 08, 2018 2:05 pm

Hey guys i'm doing a custom wiring harness for my xv1100 1995 bobber project but i'm having a little problem wiring the TCI module since my clymer's manual is in black and white and the only colored diagram i found for my bike is for the 1986, which doesn't have the same wiring color, and doesn't show the pinout of the plug. I was wondering if anyone of you knows where i could find the colored version of the virago haynes manual in pdf or paper i don't really minds but pdf should be cheaper. I don't really want to take guess and buy 10 copies for nothing only to find out they are in black and white.

Thanks!

I would like you to add your location to your profile. Some information is geographically specific, and the wiring harness is one of those things.

No need for anymore than country. You can add the state or province if you like, but not necessary.

To answer your question, you can find your wiring diagram here ----> http://www.viragotech.com/wiring/Indexofwiring.html

using the hazard switch as a headlight switch as far as i know hasnt been done.
i do not know if the switch can handle the high headlight current. all you could do is try...........dan




Something came to mind after looking at the link Mark put up. This might be out there in left field, but important to keep in mind. The last line in TRV's post reminded me of reading that there is a very very small gauged link in the starter button assembly, that is very sensitive to current. Specially changing out the bulb or entire headlight assembly. I also found out, just because Virago's headlights cut-out when starting, doesn't necessarily mean the current is cut at this link. Which really doesn't make much sense..but electrical is magic voodoo, at times. I only mentioned this cuz your bobbing yer bike and probly/might change the headlight. Everything that's changed adds up and that link in the switch doesn't take much. I don't hear too many people mentioning about that link, but might be worth keep'n in mind. Wish I could find that article, it was interesting about various current demands at various points. Think it had something to do with converting to HID..and it's warnings. Which is also weird, as a HID setup draws less current that our stardard 55/60 headlight.

Actually something's strange, the bike has never been imported so i should have the same color as the us but i have the uk's version.

I'm indeed changing my headlight but the new one has lower wattage input so everything will be fine. Thanks though!
