Almost got my V35II down to the frame, and I've noticed that there's a disconnected four pin socket (and some bullets which don't look original) cable tied into the loom behind the horn. 

I've had a look over the wiring diagram and I can't see anything missing...coils, ignition modules, horn and everything in that general area seems to be present. Haven't yet traced it back through the loom but once it's out the bike, I'll do it.

When it was complete, the electrics didn't work - only parking lights functioned and thats it - but I put that down to a bad ignition switch not completing both 12v circuits, as it was in several pieces.

Anyone got any ideas? Or is it a common thing, something like the same loom for the police spec ones installed across the range? Thanks.

the only 4 pin connector in that general area would be from the right hand handlebar switch if its similar to my V50, trouble is it might not be original. Having rewired my bike I was amazed at how many joints had been made over the years which were hidden all over the place when I stripped it down.

Wild guess, but sometimes ignition switch connects to main loom via a 4-way multiblock that looks like that. Depends on the model.

Thanks guys, but both the right hand switchgear and the ignition switch were connected via the correct plugs...this connector is surplus to all that.

I'll trace it and let you know where it goes.

Another possibility is headlamp - park bulb, dip, main, and earth. (?)

Was it an ex Vigili Urbani bike by any chance
I know they used the V35 for town work, it could be a connector for their radio set up
have you stuck a meter on it to see what the connections supply ?

Thanks, but the headlight was correctly connected via its part of the loom and it worked...

Interesting...I don't know the history of the bike other than it was imported about 5 years after it was manufactured, so it's possible it may have spent some time in Italy. The paint looks to be the original dark metallic green though. Two pins supply an ignition switched 12v, and I wasn't able to get anything on the other pins but that may have been down to other faults. 


I'll let you know where the cables go once I trace them back. Someone's also put a Y split with bullets into the 12v feed to one coil - one side of the split doesn't go anywhere though.
