1983 XV500 Relay Problems!

Post by Jordan P » Fri Oct 11, 2019 2:57 pm

I have two relays that I have found on my 1983 bike to be busted but I cannot find anywhere what the specs are so I can upgrade them to modern, cheaper relays. One is the kickstand relay (4U8-00 Omron) and the other is the starter cut off relay (12R Omron). I think those are right. It's hard to tell because someone stole my bike and ripped everything out. Does anyone know what relays can use?

No.
Without knowing the internal operation and specs of those relays. You have a snow balls chance in you know where to figure out how they work and if you can replace it with a generic relay. Plus, you would need to know how the generic operates as well. Just say'n.

Nice that it is a 1983, most importantly what model cc's. We'll assume it is an XV500 for you posted it under the XV500 section. I added the model to the topic box.

Do an internet search for these relays. You may get lucky and find them.

12R Omron should be the Neutral Relay Switch. Around $14.00 USD.
