Replacing my wiring

Postby NewOwner69 » Thu Sep 17, 2009 11:01 am



When I got my bike the wiring was "shot". I got a new one and starting tracing it thru when i found out that the old one has 4 wires going to the back side of the transmition ( the new one does not have this)!?!?!? Any one know if this is needed and or what there for?? :roll:

Those yellow wires are not going to the transmission (the transmission is on the right side of the bike), they are going to the stator, or generator (same as an alternator on a car - generates power to run the bike and charge the battery).

The yellow wires (there should be three of them) lead from the stator, up through a plug, into the rectifier under the false tank, on the left side of the bike.

The connector on the three yellow wires tends to overheat and fail (see pictures on this thread), so most people just cut them out and connect the wires directly. I can't tell for sure in your pictures, but it appears that is what someone tried to do, very poorly, on your bike. It looks like the wires were just twisted together and wrapped (loosely) with electrical tape. This is a fire waiting to happen! They should be soldered together and covered with heat-shrink tubing.

Ok i c..... I i think I found them in the "new" one. (3 wires). But in both there intergrated into the harrnes, not runing to the starter. If I understand the lead you sent me I should be able to fix this by conecting them together (with the directions posted) with no problumbs.
