WC1 Elec schematic question

    Just wondering if there's anyone who knows for sure about the 'bare bones' schematic in the WC1 kit installation manual- the alternate to the full harness, for people that don't want to install the lighting system. It shows the green wire with a switch, the only one in the schematic. I understand that it is the kill switch for the system, but my question is: since it is shown in the open position, is it showing the 'run' position, or is it the 'kill' position? Since it is green(ground), is ground essentially a short, or is it completing the circuit? The reason that i'm asking is that I don't intend to add the switch, I was just going to use the compression lever to kill the engine. So do I close the switch with a direct connection or not connect it at all?

    Hi Buzz,

    The green wire from the coil must be grounded to run. If you ground the green wire from the CDI module it will stop running. The purpose of the run/stop switch is to ground the CDI to stop the spark.

    Have fun,

    Did you buy a bare bones wiring harness? Where did you get the schematic from?
