Default Got myself a new (to me) bike




I picked up a 2008 wildfire, a Chinese bike. It runs and is fun to ride but as with all cheap autos, it has some issues. The previous owner wired the headlight to a toggle switch and I am not sure why. The headlight and brake light works but the turn signals do not. Anybody good with electrical want to give me some tips on what to look for?

Just take the turn signals off and use hand signals.

I plan on using hand signals till I get it sorted but I don't want to rely on that, especially riding at night.

You'll never make it as a 1%er

Lol damn.

I don't think 1%ers would ever ride a Chinese bike.

Get some gear. The way those Chinese bikes are built, it's only a matter of time until the wheel falls off and you get rashed to hell
