A65l ignition warning light
« on: 23 March, 2017, 10:25:48 »
On the 1963 A65 should the ignition warning light, stay illuminated when the bike is running, or should it go out?

Mine stays on indicating power to ignition. When I turn ignition switch off, light goes off.

Best wishes..........

John

Later bikes, late 1960s, had a combined ignition/oil warning light, which would go out when pressure at oil pressure switch reached set pressure.

Thanks Bess & JulianS,

I have the two lights, Ignition also oil pressure, oil light goes off but ignition stays on, I thought this was most peculiar as most other marques of bikes, the warning light goes off.

Hi John,
              I didn't realize the 63 model had an oil tapping on the casing.

I have a A50 without the oil pressure tapping, I connected one warning light for ignition the other for main beam. As you have an oil pressure switch it maybe worth wiring the ignition and oil warning lights to act as Julian mentioned.

Best wishes...
