82 Engine in an 81 Naked

Postby smatten » Sun Jun 02, 2013 11:01 pm



I have an 81 naked that I have put a 82 1100 in. The original engine had a blown head gasket.

I just discovered that the ignition wiring for an '82 engine is different than the '81. I get no spark to the plugs and I figure this is the reason.

Does anyone know how (if?) and what I need to do to get this motor to run?

Thanks!

the differences i know of between 81/82 are: different transmission gearing, rear tire went from 17" to 16", neutral switch moved to inside front transmission cover. could you give more details on the differences you are experiencing? different connectors? wire color?

Here is a link to a clip from the Honda Service Manual showing the different ignition wiring schematics for the 80-81 and the 82. I'm not sure how to post a picture in the forum.



Thanks for your help.

Maybe this picture will work. I'll give it shot.
