Well I guess I haven't learned enough to use a continuity meter yet. For a $16 wiring harness that is correct for the bike I figured it would just be an easy way to check. I do believe I stretched a wire. But if not that's okay. I'm going out of town Tuesday and it will come in by the time I get back and then I can give it a shot. If not, it's only $16. I did find a local bike shop that can check it out for me if it doesn't work. I do love working on things and learning everyday.What do you expect to accomplish with a new harness? It's the last thing I would think to replace. Not to mention you could troubleshoot it easily without replacement, just a decent continuity meter.
