    Default looking for someone in the denver area

    to diagnose and repair the wiring on my 76 kz750. Its kind of a mess right now, and keeps blowing out the main fuse. I've gone through and through it with a voltmeter, even had the whole harness off the bike 3 times, and cant find any short.

    Any recommendations of people or shops with a reasonable labor rate that doesn't mind these old Jap bikes would be greatly appreciated!

    Throw the whole thing in the trash and start fresh. There are a couple wiring diagrams for KZ's in the Jap section.

    Yep, do the re-wire. It's always harder to repair somebody else's fugged up disaster.

    yeah I did until it got deleted.



    I got an ebay score on a new in good condition harness ready to plug in and go, hopefully this fixes my problem.

    Hey man, is this the harness off the runner, or off the extra motor.
    They both were sitting around a while, but both were complete and worked before I cut them up.

    The runner. I didn't post the whole story of what my dumbass did, its not the bike, nor the wirings fault. my reg went out one day and blew the main. I decided that I was lazy, and didn't feel like pushing it home so I jumped across the fuse. about 100 yards later there was lots of smoke. The main power wire melted, and melted some of the insulation of all the surrounding wires. I pulled the harness and "repaired" all the damaged parts I could find, and ever since then its been full of intermittent quirks, this being the latest.

    Ahh! LOL! I was like what the heck?

    Dude. That other motor had a complete wire harness attached to it, and It ran better then the runner bike when I pulled it apart. When I pulled it I tried to keep as much of the harness attached as possible.

    I would bet you got a wire crossed somewhere, or you just plain shorted out the stator. Might have to pull the stator and replace it.
