Alright just got my bike, unfortunately some hack worked on it before. Here's the deal, it just ate a battery. Bike can't be jumped to run on its own power so something is up with the charging system. I tried to check it with my multimeter like the clymer manual says but I had some trouble finding the right wires to connect to. I found the black/yellow wire easy enough off the negative terminal but can't find a red/white wire coming off the positive terminal. Anyone have any experience with this? The bike is a 1988 Ninja 600. The only thing coming off the positive terminal is the single main wire that goes to the 30amp fuse and such. Can I be missing the wire and thus have the problem solved hopefully??? I don't think I'm that lucky but tell me what you guys are thinking. BTW I don't know if its related but all my lights work properly save the fact that my front right turn signal glows when the engine is on (it blinks fine when I turn....it just glows when I'm not...kinda weird).
