Question about 2005 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer

2 Answers

N.Z. Yamaha FZ6S Headlights

I live in NZ and have just bought a second hand 06'FZ6S.

My question is about headlights.

When started, the left hand headlight is on low beam, and stays on all the time on low beam.

When full beam is used the right side headlight comes on on full beam.

The right side headlight has a 3 prong bulb and the left side has a 2 prong bulb.

The right side has two wires Bl/Y and Bl.

The left side also has two wires Bl/Green and Bl.

The wiring loom from the handlebars has 9 wires on either side of the junction box.

In the interests of safety how can I get both lights working on dip and full ? Then if a filament burned out on one light the other light would till be going. Cheers Allistair

    Since posting this question, I have found an answer and I have done the modification. I now have both lights going on dip beam. Happy to point anyone who wants to know in the right direction if they contact me. Cheers Allistair

There is a genuine reason why this is the standard setup for this bike. At night, the dual-headlight of the bike can appear to other motorists that you are in a car at a much greater distance than is actual. As you can imagine, this might result in someone pulling out in front of you, completely unaware that you are bearing down on them at a short distance. So, for safety reasons, only a single beam is lit when using dipped/low beam.

However, if you accept the risk above, you can do what is known as the 'dual headlight mod'. There are 2 accepted methods for this.

The first method simply requires bridging the 2-pin connector (H7 bulb) to the spare on the 3-pin connector (H4 bulb). Instructions have been posted by ‘Gand’ at the following link:

http://solsar.com/fz6/headlight.htm

The second method is more complex, and requires a decent knowledge of auto-electrics, as you have to remove various components of the bike just to get to the wiring loom. Sorry, I've lost the link for this, but you might be able to find the instructions by searching for 'FZ6 dual headlight mod'.

Note: it differs from country to country, but in the UK (for example), the dual headlight mod will result in an immediate MOT failure. Therefore, you will need to remember to disconnect the mod prior to MOT inspection.

I have a 2005 fz6 fazer with the same problem and the problem is a good one with hard answers. the right hand light is set at a different angle to the left so is designed to point in a different direction to the one on the right. its just very tricky to re align the beam settings afterwards to stop blinding a motorist infront of you. i paid the garage to do this very same problem.

06 ford falcon wont do nothing wont start or turn over new bat


Bad or loose battery cable(s). Tighten the connectors on all ends, and go hand-over-hand to inspect them for fault or damage.

Just enough juice to make the radio work but not enough to turn it over, right?

Try this test: Turn the headlights on, then try to start it. If the headlights (or interior lights) dim down or go out, then if it ain't the battery, it surely is one of the vables or connectors.
