New mofset R/R wire question

Post by westy57 »



GL1200 1986 Aspencade SEI. Just received my new upgraded R/R from reg/ret it is the mofset .My connectors were melted and the shindengensh574a has 8 wires 3 yellow , 2 green , 2 red w/white stripe and 1 black w/white stripe (8) wires total. My mofset has ( 7 wires) 3 yellow,2 red ,2 black. I assume the 2 black go to the 2 green but what about the black sensing wire. Is it better to soder direct or should I crimp female connectors and waterproof?

The black/white is the sense wire. The new R/R does it's sensing over the main red wires, so it doesn't require a separate sense wire. Just make sure all the connections are good. It's best to solder the three yellow ones at least.

The original OEM wiring has the two RR green wires joined together in the wiring harness as well as the two red/white wires. You'll notice there is only one red white wire at the starter solenoid.
