What's this symbol mean?

  1. I've googled but can't work out what this symbol means. I changed over my old unreliable left-hand switch block to a vintage-replica unit, and left aside a wire that connected to nothing but this on the wiring diagram. The indicators are playing funny buggers, and I wondered if this means the wire in question is earthed, and if that's why the indicators are flashing erratically... Anybody know what the symbol means?


  2. Gotta love Netrider! Thanks mate!
  3. Or even more precisely (since this is a 2 wheeler) frame. ;-)

  4. Well I hooked that earth wire up to the switchblock(s) and what do you know : no more erratic flashing, no more blown fuse! The only thing that worries me about the new switches: they're not very waterproof at all!, and riding to Yea and back yesterday in a great downpour, I lost all my lights!

  6. Pack the switch bodies with vaseline or silicone grease.
