Magneto coil missing wires?

  1. Is there something wrong with this magneto coil, it only has 2 wires(Blu, and black) where is the grounded wire? 20161005_124200.jpg 20161005_124150.jpg 20161005_124144.jpg

    nothing wrong - that's new style without the white wire that causes so much trouble (black is the ground)
  3. My magneto coil readings are the following in ohms
    Cdi readings in ohms:
    Sparkplughead/blue-nothing doesn't move
    I am posting pictures on the next thread.

    readings make no sense - you don't have a white wire

    my bike runs good w/ only 2 wires like that. to kill it, I ground the red wire's bolt on the cdi to the frame, w/ a piece of cable (gives me more street cred than using the kill switch button from the kit lmao)

    it is kinda weird on mine b/c IIRC the blue from magneto is positive & has a path that runs to the red (+) on last stage of CDI b4 the spark plug (where ground/neg is still black). I'm no electrician & I've painted over the wires so it's possible I'm mistaken though

    i connect the green to the blue and the orange to the black , no problems after over a year
  8. The problem was that they had the wire colors swapped. It was supposed to be blue to blur and black to black. It works now with blue to black and black to blue. Stupid crappie made in china.

    something is wrong there - maybe your armature isn't solidly grounded to the case

    your black wire is soldered to armature, which means it should be ground and should go to black on CDI
