This is my first post as a new member.
I recently bought a 1984 ETZ250 although it has a new MOT I belive the bike has been standing unused for some time. My problem is the warning lights – high beam, neutral and indicator warning are very dim when riding the bike. However when the engine is not running the lights are the correct brightness. I have cleaned up all the electrical connections I can find without any improvement. Something that may be relevant – the rear light (not brake light) comes on when the ignition is turned on.
One final thing. Can you please tell me the spanner size for the rear axle? 17mm is too small and 19mm is too big.
The relevance of the illuminated rear light suggests something is either incorrectly connected, or is bleeding current from one place to another. Without hands on using a multi meter to check Voltages and continuity, it’s hard to pin point the fault.
17 – 19 there is a number between those two . . . 😉
