Headlight/instrument change

PostAuthor: nytrainer » Wed Jan 13, 2021 9:53 am

Hello,
I removed the headlight and the instruments on my 920 Virago as I was building a street tracker.
I now have been told that there are numerous relays that need to be bypassed before the bike will run.
Can anyone give me some help?
Thanks in advance.
Paul
