    1993 sL 650 Electrical Box

    Hey guys. So last summer the electric box in my sl 650 shorted and melted all the wires. So I got a new one. I was wondering if someone could help me out as far as the taking out and installation goes.

    I need to know:
    1. How to take out the old box.
    2. How to put in the new one.

    I've never done something like this before, so I could really use the help. If you know a site that has like a parts diagram that will at least show me where everything is hooked up that will help too. Thanks.

    Box

    Thats gonna be a job. What caused it?
    Are the wires to the stator melted ?
    Basically you separate the halfs of the box and start disconnecting wires.
    There will be wires on the ends of the box. Take the bolts out and gently pry the caps off.
    Feed the wires through the notches. You will understand re assembly when you do that.
    The wires are color coded and its really not hard. Just hook up the right colors to the marked circuit board.
    Look it over pretty good before you start pulling wires. Its tedious but not complicated on that year.

    I'm starting to think its because it was sitting directly on the battery. And the wires that burnt up are the ones running to the stator. So does that change anything? And also, where can I find a plastic cover for the battery that the electrical box sits on?

    Thats the most common cause of a burnt stator wire. I had to make a plastic battery cover. Get creative. The idea is to isolate the terminals from the box. Anything that accomplishes that under operating conditions will work.....

    Am I going to have to get a new stator or should it be fine? Im pretty sure the electrical box comes with all of the wires needed

    You can test the stator with a multimeter to determine if you will need a new one......
