    So I was having a problem getting my 85vt700 to start, turns out that it was the ignition. ( The wire caught on fire > previous owners handiwork)

    Last year rewired the back end and had not yet replaced old dry rotten wires in the headlight /dash fuse box area. SO I rewired the ignition, I found a lot of wires that were in horrible shape. So I replaced all of the bad wires which required cutting the water damaged connectors. So now my bike will start and run fantastic! The only problem is I have no lights>>>At all!

    I need some help, I have the service manual, and I am sure that I have everything wired correctly..what would be awesome is pictures, does anyone have pictures of this area ( Headlight, fuse, front turn-signal area?) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
