Bare bones wirung for a 1984 700

PostAuthor: choppin » Wed Apr 19, 2017 8:01 pm

Is there a diagram for a bare bones wiring for the 84 700 model. Looking too replace the key switch with a different one. New switch will have off-on-on. First on for start, second on for lights. Still going to use a starter button on the handle bars.

in my signature copy and paste.
sounds like you are using a HD switch.. had one on the bride.. worked awesome. 1 turn allowed ignition, 2 turn allowed ignition and lights.... loved that switch.............dan

If it went together easy... you forgot something.

Thanks Dan. I should mention that I am going to need bare bones wiring on my 84 700, but I have an 86 700 starter system on it. Is there a big difference in the wiring. If I want to copy the diagrams how do I do that. Thanks for your help. Rich

That's great Dan. really no hurry. I used your bare bones diagram on my 920 a couple years ago and was great and easy to follow.

thanks Rich

I want to be totally clear on what my needs are. Don't want you to go to any trouble if not clear. The bike is an XV 700 1984. I am using a 2nd generation cover and starter system from a 1986 700. I will be using the stator/pickup coils from the 84 along with the TCI from the 84. Hope this helps. Rich

does not matter on the pickups, stater due to those wires do not get touched.
what i am going to do for you is add a relay for the 2nd gen starter system and your 2 turn ignition switch.

this is just the ignition side of the wiring.
run a battery wire from the 20 amp main fuse to the ignition switch and starter relay..
the switch should have marking beside the posts. such as
B- battery.. red wire from the 20amp fuse
I- ignition... red/white to the fuse marked ignition
A- accessories.. blue/black and tan to the fuse box.. this will be for the lights, horns, signals, tach, neutral light, marker lights, headlight, brake lights. (next diagram)
if not please let me know...............dan
