I got both grounds on the case bolts


I'm wondering if these spliced wire was to ignition cluster?

I cant find that color combination on the wiring diagram, but my best guess is this - the wires are for the neutral and reverse lights

The black wires are battery positive when the key switch is on - the light green with the red stripe is the neutral wire - it connects to ground when the transmission is in neutral - the white wire (should be dark green by the wiring diagram) should connect to ground when the transmission is in reverse

Honda runs a hot wire to the indicator lights and switches the ground wire on and off to make the indicator lights work

That's what I was thinking but wasn't positive I found a diagram that was saying the white wire was green to so I'm a little stumped still.... is there a way to by pass the indicator lights? Or how would you recommend solving the issue?


Really appreciate all your help man

The indicator lights are only indicator lights, but the neutral light switch provide a signal to the CDI unit to prevent the starter motor from spinning if in gear and the LH lever is not pulled in. You can bypass the neutral switch so the starter motor will work when in gear by simply grounding the light green wire with the red stripe. You don't have to do anything with the reverse light wires. Just cap off the black wires either individually or together - black is black, tied together and capped off is the same as capping them individually, then just cap off the other wire. You will have no indicator lights, but everything should be functional.

Jus got the battery hooked up and everywhere is getting juice but the starter relay won't engage im gonna try to switch the solenoid with a new one and see where that leaves me

This bike has been a nightmare to me hopefully I get the problem solved and get her running before Xmas! Lmao

I don't know what you are talking about.

The starter shaft just spins when there is power to the starter motor - the solenoid is just the switch between the battery and the starter motor - when you press the start button, it just causes the solenoid to close which in turn causes the starter motor to run.

Please explain what is happening

Sorry lol... basically when I ground out the starter and try to crank it the starter just spins... I was assuming that the shaft would pop out and spin the heat to turn the motor ?
