  1. Hey guys, first of all thanx for clicking and taking a look at my post!

    As said above i own a 84 DR250 Trail bike :) i have a problem with my headlight wiring..... I had the low beam filiment blow so i was riding with highbeam on for a few weeks (i just adjusted the beam angle accordingly) It also blew, now i have replaced the globe twice but everytime i put the globe in i start the bike, lights on, rev it a little and it blows. It is very bright on idle! the taillight is not affected by this.... any ideas? :oops: Also looking for a electrical wiring diagram for the same bike i am trying to hook up indicators to it for a roadworhy. The bike is 6v and runs a magneto charging setup (no battery).

    Thankyou for your time again

  2. run the bike with the headlight disconnected using a volt meter, checkthe voltage to the headlight wires, it may be overcharging due to a fault in the charging system, causing an overcharge which will break the circuit at the weakest point

    ie:light filiment.
  3. oi dude i got the same bike:) i got the wiring diagram from a mate, dunno if it will help, so yer give us ya email and ill fowrad to u;)
  4. He can't PM you until he submits 10 posts so you you might be better to give him yours.
  5. Problems sorted :)

    Hey there guys, my electrical problems are all sorted... Thankyou very much for your replies all of you! Bloody voltage Reg!! I ended up purchasing the genuine Suzuki workshop manual so if there are any fellow DR20 owners out there that need to know anything or need a scan of page just get hold of me here ---> Cobra18@rocketmail.com, Will be more than happy to help, the manual covers quite a few different versions of the DR including the F and full battery elect systems.

    Cheers again Guys
