    MagicShine 1400 Deconstructed

    That is a link to the MS 1400 deconstructed page.
    OdTexas wrote it up.
    You may want to PM him and ask if he has a bigger image of the original taken of the switch in that thread.
    I blew this one up for you, but it is kinda blurry.
    Save it to your desktop and zoom in.
    Hope it helps.

    OK. That was me being lazy.......sooooo
    I took apart my 1400 switch.
    Looking at the picture below, starting at the red wire and going clockwise, it goes in this order.
    Red, black, white, yellow.

    Looking at it like a schematic, the board looks like I have it below

    RED.................... BLACK



    YELLOW ..................... WHITE

    Here is a pic if I just made that too confusing.
    Sorry about the crappy photo, the macro on my phone blows.

    Thanks a lot savageman,thats exactly what i am looking for,how do you find your light ?
    im pretty happy with mine even though it broke,i meant to put threadlock on the mounts as i had noticed the screws loosen after a spin but forgot about it till i seen the button dangling from the bars then into the spokes then darkness...
    its a bit worrying to hear about the battery problems i got mine last november so looks to have the battery with the problem,,i got mine from dx so i think i l look elsewhere for a better battery pack,,,

    No problem. Glad I could help.
    I like the light alot.
    I really like the different selections.
    The cord is a little long, and the light is a little big.
    The mount really sucks. Mine kept rotating forward on my bars while at speed through really rough sections.
    I modded mine with a Marwi Mount from user El34's website.
    Hoffman amplifiers.
    It wasn't a straight forward dropin as it was designed for the MS 900 light, but it worked fine with a little fiddling.

    I haven't used it much lately since I started getting into DIY lights, and I picked up a Baja Designs Strykr to replace the 1400.
    Don't get me wrong, the 1400 is a great little setup. With a simple mount mod you are good to go.
    Oh yea, then there is the whole battery issue.
    But it's not hard to find or make a quality replacement battery.
    If you're comfortable doing board soldering like you'll need to do to fix your switch, you are a perfect candidate to build your own battery, and maybe even jump into DIY lights.
    The only problem is after you build your first light, every single one of your buddies is going to want one or two.
    I'm in the middle of building 12 lights right now.......wheww.
