86 aspencade se-i

Postby mrvander » Sat May 30, 2015 10:37 am



I need help from someone that is familiar with the 86 aspencade se-i. It had no spark. I found a blown fuse right off the right side of the battery and replaced it with a provided spare. Got the bike started and was able to run it for a few minutes and smoke started coming up from under the false tank. I shut it down and found a fried connector on a yellow wire. I think it might be for the ICU, but have not found anywhere in the forum that indicates its exact location. Help!

This sounds like the stator wires. I just searched the 1200 forum under "yellow wires" and it brought up a bunch of info. You may want to try that?

Thank you for your input. I studied the schematic and found that the yellow wire goes to the pulse generator. Which is accessed via the removal of the swing arm or under the timing belt cover.

Be careful...the yellow wire....there's more than one...yes there's one to the pulse coil but it's very small...there's also one feeding the ignition module and 3 larger ones feeding the regulator/rectifier module....better be sure which one your looking at...the one to the pulse coil would be very unlikely to smoke..it has a maximum of 5 volts on it...I'd be more inclined to lean toward the 3 yellow wires to the R/R module or the single one at the ignition module.

R/R=regulator/rectifier?
Ignition module=ignition control unit?
It was a single pole connector with a yellow wire that that burnt at the connector. I cut the burnt connector off and spliced the yellow wire together. Still no spark.

Yes and yes.The burnt connection..can you determine what it connects to.
I think this is a fuel injected bike.It will have a computer .It receives pulses from the pulse coils and outputs the pulses to the ignition module(like a CDI unit) then to the ignition coils.
To the best of my memory.The only things needed for spark is the pulse coils.12 volts at the coils and computer.
Does the computer flash any trouble lights.

I can only guess where the wire goes. There is a plug with two more yellow wires. All three wires have 4 volts going thru them when I turn it over. There is a Computer under the seat with a red light on it that does not flash. I think someone else has messed with the wiring prior to me me working on it.

Here is a great set of articles that virgilmobile and another user set up showing some wiring repair that you may want to review for your own knowledge. I know virgilmobile is helping here so thought this might help you too.
