Relay identification
« on: December 09, 2017, 07:45:04 PM »
It looks like there isn't too much info out there as to which position the different relays are located apart from the OEM manual, so here's a guide that I think works for gen 1&2, not sure about 2018 models.

From the front:

1 - Headlight
2 - Cooling fan
3 - Starter
4 - Fuel pump
5 - Engine management system
6 - Accessories, covering heated grips and seats, pillion power socket
7 - Rear brake light switch
8 - Fog lights

There is also the starter relay above the gearbox on the left side and the powered top box relay located just in front of the tail light.

Hope this is useful to someone when they're having snags!

Useful info. I thought I'd seen an image of this on here before but couldn't find one, so here's my copy for those who like to visualise...




On my Tiger 800 the relays were in a different order to the manual, so I swapped them to match. I'm sure my Explorer's relays were in the correct order though.

Thanks for posting that, I've been struggling to find this info.

I've a dodgy starter relay on the old 1215, so parts to be ordered  :031:

While we're at it, do someone know if there are indicators relays on the Mk3? Or is it completely computerized?

Damn! I'd have to tap directly from the lights to get a signal then...

Thanks!
