With the new bulbs on the left side, the old flasher seems to work. It seems to be drawing a lot of power though, as for every illumination the neutral light dims substantially... though, maybe that is normal?

I put a new battery in and i seem to only have about 6.6 volts and 3-4000 rpm. Since this is the canadian version, that means with the headlight on. I am looking at the 1977 manual and it doesnt give a correct voltage for 3000rpm, only 8000 rpm. Which i didn't check. Is 6.6 too low?

Can somebody on here just recommend somebody in NorCal that work on this electrical? I totally rebuilt my bike but can’t ride it around because I can’t get the lights to work after hours of testing and bulbs blowing. Electrical is my worst aptitude. I have voltage at the battery but as soon as I plug the into the red/positive on the battery I lose any voltage going forward. And no voltage either side of the fuse.

I don't have the answer for whose near you but I'm sure a quick search would find someone who does electrical even closer than say someone else you knows of someone in California it's a big place.sounds like a battery isn't holding any amps try charger on it to see if your electrical systems do come back.
