new here, in Mi. need help

I just bought a 2008 versys. I am really happy with it, it rides nice, its in good shape. but, the headlights don't work, and neither does the cooling fan! I am not sure if the previous owner knew or not. I am pretty handy, I do all my own car repair and am good at electrical trouble shooting generally. So far I have only checked the fuse and bulbs, they are both obviously good. I have read a little on another forum about a relay, or a rectifier. Any tips on where to start would be really helpful. thanks

Hi Rocky!

Can't help you directly, but there is a link to service manuals for our motorcycles (I've got a 2008 too!) in this thread here: http://kawasakiversys.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2846

I'm starting to suspect that my cooling fan isn't working either. The motor itself works and the fuse is OK, but I haven't seen/heard it operate at all. I need to look at the temp sensor and see if I can fake a high temp to get it to turn on...

Good Luck!
