Wiring lights on a dirt bike

Not quite sure if this belongs in the fz6 electrical forum but whatever

I have an Suzuki DR350 that the previous owner did a crappy wiring job on. I'm going to have to running new wires from the battery for the turns signals and headlight. What specifics can you guys help me out with- Do I need a power block, relays, fuses? So far I have only the lights and switches


Thanks all

Re: Wiring lights on a dirt bike

I would pull a wiring diagram for the bike and copy what the factory did. If the bike had lighting before there should be a fuse box. If not your going to need a fuse box, fuses, wire loom and wire, relays (depends what Suzuki did) and a flasher. Some bikes will use a relay for the headlight operation and some will run right to the headlight switch then to the headlight.

thanks, but the thing never had turn signals from the factory- it's a dirt bike converted for street, no fuse box or anything. I need to add brake switches, signals and a brighter headlight since the wiring is toast. I have new wires, loom, terminals- just looking for some technical advice on a rewire
