That's interesting. Is the replacement loom a pretty much identical match colour wise?



With those (red in your case) blocks are concerned, the connections inside are a staggered join. So.. you have 8 connections per side. If you're looking at it from any one side (it's the same both sides) the outer two spade connections and the inner two are conjoined making the possibility of 4 total spades that can be plugged into that section of the block. There are two single 1-1 connections in the box both sides of the middle 2-2 connections.

I have never messed around with a TS250 so I am unsure,
This manual is for the TS125 i believe, but the wiring setup is very similar I should think. Unfortunately my internet at home is gone boom so I cannot access my FTP server to see if I have a 250 diagramme. Can someone else post it please?

But, from what we can gleam from that diagramme, green and black is right indicator, white and black is left indicator. The Blue and black is the only wire that directly connects to the indicator relay (via the switch), other than the plain black which is ignition.

If you were close to me i'd come up and see.. Where do you live? 8)

Thanks for the reply and advice.

The colours of the new loom do seem to match the original (hard to tell due to the poor state of it) and the wiring diagram. The one in your reply is the same one that I've been using.

I was under the impression that the connector block was just straight through contacts, i.e. the input on one side matches the output on the other with no other internal connections. I have a battery for the bike now, so when I get a chance I will hook it up and see which of the auxiliaries I can get to work!

Thanks for the offer of potential assistance, I'm in Crystal Palace, South London if that's close to you?

On the plus side I've managed to find a set of original handlebar switches which should arrive soon!

There are several different connector blocks available. Some have connections between the connections.

So you need to know which one the TS 250 has.

Right, I've had a look at the bike's original connector block and there is no internal cross links between the terminals. Each connection just runs straight through to the other side.

When I get a moment I'll fill and fit the battery and see what I can get to work

Aha.. Well, that might be a problem then .... :lol:
Does the replacement have the cross links?


And, sorry, I'm in South Wales :roll:

By the way, would you want to be selling the master cylinder? I'm in need of one :lol:

Dunno! I'll have a look when I get the chance. I'm waiting for some switches to arrive so I'll wait until after they arrive.

Did you mean the ETZ master cylinder from the front brake? If so I'd be happy to sell it. I'll have to find it first though! I'll drop you a PM when I've dug it out.

Yey! :-)

Also, I might be tempted to just ride to you one day in the weekend in order to pick it up (and perhaps you want to sell other things too???? I am after a few items) :lol: :lol: :lol:


I can help you as best I can if you so wished.
