  • Please refer me to a good motorbike electrician if possible

    I have a 250RR and when I bought the bike my high beams were constantly on. When I switch it to normal lights, the lights turned off. (Similar to a on/off switch.) So I rewired the bike so I can have the low beams on and no high beams. Now that I have to take it to the pits, I need to fix this problem.

    Could someone refer me to an electrician and whats the approximation on the cost of this repair. Even better if someone knows how to fix this and if possible tell me what to do would even be better.

    BTW i live NOR/City Area

    Thanks ALL

    Umm.. Are all your fuses intact? :?

    First thing I'd be checking...

      If the fuse was blown, the lights wouldnt work at all.

      Best bet is to get it checked out... the last thing you want is a dodgey job that ends up melting your wiring harness.
      If you can... you MUST!

        The fuses are fine. I think its been incorrectly wired from the beginning, thus I need a electrician to open up the plastic crap around the switch to rewire the wires.

          This guy is pretty good. Only done a minor job for me in the past, but knows his stuff.

            This is an old thread, but instead of starting a new one with the same topic I figured I might add some useful information here as Ive had a similar problem:

            The osborne park motorcycle electrician seems to be out of business now.. (they werent picking up the phone?) and since Ive had an electrics problem on my ninja I've actually had a real hard time finding a motorcycle electrician in Perth. (The osborne park one was the only one appearing on google maps when typing in 'motorcycle electrician').

            None of the mechs wanted to fix my problem (the guys a KTEC who are usually great told me I need to ask a motorcycle electrician and so did the guys at Moto Pro). The only mechs that agreed to look at my bike's electrical problem was the original dealer (causewaykawa). They had a booking period of several weeks tho, which was well and truly too long for driving around without indicators in my opinion...!

            The only other two guys that I found out about was a guy in mundaring with the name of michael (which was way too far away for me) and Joel from Custom bike electrics which was recommended to me by the guys from Moto Pro. Hes in parkwood just off roe hwy. (hes got his own website). If anyone has a motorcycle electrics problem and struggles like me, I can honestly recommend this guy. Hes got his own little workshop, is superhonest and doesnt overcharge.

            hope it will help anyone out there looking for a motorcycle electrician!

                      I would strongly recommend AGAINST using Custom Bike Electrics.

                      I asked them to get a bike running - they replaced some narva plugs, cleaned the fuse holder, changed some bulbs (all at $110 per hour) and needlessly put in a fuse. That cost me $715 and the bike still did not run. Oh, and they put a large dent in the bike.

                      I would recommend using Schultz's - they are terrific and do bikes and cars.

                        I'd go along with Schultz's. I've only dealt with them with cars but they were fantastic.

                          Custom bike electrics are the best. I have taken my bikes there since they started and the work has always been top class and at a reasonable price. I have seen Russianmetals bike around the traps, with the dent in it that was there months before it went to Customs, I think someone is trying to scam. Anyway, don't listen to people that have no idea like Russianmetal as he has been shopping his piece of crap around for ages and everyone is telling him the same thing, he doesn't listen. Perth bike scene is a close community and we all look out for each other, we also hear about people trying to scam the good repairers out there. Joel and Richard do a great job and don't deserve these false and untrue reviews.
                          Take your bike to Customs and you will not be disappointed.

                            You are trying a little too hard, judging by your comments. I do not know you as far as I am aware, and I certainly would not attempt to make comments on your honesty or any other motivation.

                            Perhaps you could try some specifics. What I have been shopping around for months? Who has been telling me what? To whom do I not listen?

                            There is no 'scam', as the proprietor of the shop has claimed in defamatory comments elsewhere. I think he should repair the damage, yes, but I have made no specific claim.

                            I have however asked for a refund on the work he performed.
