the yellow wire is from the new ignition barrel i bought and that's a spare wire when its all connected so i think that's the Jen 1 u was taking about
Ok mate ill give it ago. cheersYou have it wired inncorectly.
Leave the blue and red connections as they are.
Disconnect the rest from each other on the switch loom.
Disconnect the white and brown wires from each other from bike the loom.
Connect the white wire from the bike loom to the white wire from the switch loom.
Connect the brown wire from the bike loom to the brown wire from the switch loom.
Connect the yellow wire from the switch loom to the remaining wire from the bike loom.
that would be the best solution if the whole wiring was trashed. but we have not yet discovered how much damage was done often simple solutions are better. if a new connector and a 100oms resistor will cure it. buying the whole lot to replace potentially serviceable parts isn't the best way forwards for a very cheap bike.Gen2 ('94-'09) upper triple. Might even scour eBay for a good unhacked wiring harness and swap the whole mess over.
i have the other barrel now with all the same wires ill try it your way if it doesnt work shall i connect the new barrel to all the other matching colours?yeah they do say that. Guy I bought mine off said it probably just needed a battery and a carb clean was running perfectly when it was parked 6 years ago. yeah of course it was 8mths and a complete rebuild later. I had a running bike. LOL
no what I'm getting at is the part of the harness that is butchered. it is just the either end of the ignition connector or does the damage go further or beyond that bit.
edit. the new barrel you have is a gen 1 because of the yellow wire. gen 2 barrels do not have a yellow wire. it is grey.
wiring connections on the gen 2 at that connector are as follows :- 1. brown to brown 2. white to white. 3. grey to grey. 4 blue to the red with blue trace. 5. red to red.
further the yellow wire on the gen 1 goes to the stop switch
the grey on the gen 2 goes directly to the igniter (cdi)
I believe if the yellow is designated as the grey wire IE; yellow to grey it completes the circuits from the switch BUT you still need the 100oms resistor between the wires.
