Solenoid relays under seat?
There are 2 of them and I still haven’t found a satisfactory answer as to what they are or do. The nearest my searching has found is 1 is a neutral relay but that doesn’t make any sense to me. I thought 1 might be to do with the side stand kill switch function. The other one would still be a mystery if I’m right about the sidestand.
It’s an early 1988~96 loom and magneto. Any light shed would be appreciated.
P.S. I have tried the search function

In my 3SH TDR parts catalogue they are listed as "relay assembly" with no other details
Usually relays are for the starter motor, headlights, side-stand etc so I think that you are quite close
I think I’ve sussed it. Relay 1 is to ‘tell’ the circuit that it’s out of neutral (and so activate relay 2). 2 is to ‘tell’ the circuit that the stand is up and safe to run. If the stand is down it will earth/kill the ignition!
That took me some thinking!!
Are there any speedometers, of my size and shape, that go over 80MPH?

@spookdog xt350, goes up to 110mph and is same shape and size. Also same size front wheel but I'm not sure maybe you would need the Speedo drive too.
@spookdog it doesn't sound right to me as all bikes would have them
It's more likely one is relay for electric start an the other is flasher relay
I don’t have a electric start. I have an 88 DTR125 Also my indicator relay is a 3 pin one behind the headlight. These 2 are 4pin. They control the sidestand kill switch, which the previous owner removed from my bike
PS modern bikes are a bit more solid state,...
I know it doesn’t sound right, and might not be as I stated it. I am sure that it is to stop you pulling away with the side stand down. 1 neutral switch, 1 relay. 1 sidestand switch 1 relay. It’s how old computers worked before solid state. On a newer bike the ecu would probably do the job...
