Ok heres what ive got ...

The triangle connector goes to the speedo,

The 2 pin connector:
Brown is earth for front indicators
Red/Yellow is +ve to indicator relay

The 3 pin is wierd, it comes outta the loom to the plug then plugs back into the loom. mines like a nest around there but i THINK the Red/Yellow is a +ve and the Brown is a -ve/earth

think you might have to do it further back down the loom

someone else might have an idea

thanks alot for looking at them for me Smithy, you've been a great help! im going to crack on 2moro and get it sorted. Haven't had much time at all this week.

I was thinking of maybe trying to get a speedo for it at some point, so it's good to know i have the connector still.

Glad you like the colour scheme on the bike i'd quite enjoy some coloured wheels tbh, however will cost alot! had a look at your bike mate....looks sweet. very tidy isnt it!

Freaky, cheers for letting me know about that part. does look good for me, however i dont have any lights or anything on the bike so i don't know if could warrant putting that on my bars, for the use of only one of the features. May just go for the single button and splice it in to my loom.

cheers
Dennis

So i had a few mins spare this weekend so managed had a quick look at the cdi. Ive located the yellow cable with the black stripe and have just bought a kill switch off ebay. It has two wires comming out of the switch with a connector on the end, which im going to get rid off and just use the wires.

So i need to ground the wire comming out of the cdi and get this switch involved aswell in order to kill the ignition? Without sounding like a complete idiot how should i go about this? all the gear, no idea springs to mind! haha

cheers

You said you have two wires from your new switch. When you push the switch, the two wires connect together, when you realease it they disconnect again.

Connect either switch wire to the yellow/black CDI wire. Connect the other switch wire to ground (ie somewhere on the frame or engine), preferably on the earth connector just near the CDI. If this is not there, connect it under one of the CDI mount bolts. By doing this, pushing the button connects the yellow/black CDI wire to ground & stops the spark.

You are right, you can lose the connector on your new switch and join longer wires to it, but I would really recommend not cutting off the plug or socket on the yellow/black CDI wire. If you can't find a mating connector for wire and need a pin type plug to fit itnto it, at a pinch you can you can fold the individual strands of copper from the wire back along its outer insulation and plug this into the socket.

Make sure that whatever you do is reasonably well insulated. On the SEM the kill circuit runs at a few hundred volts and could give a nasty bite if touched or stop the bike if water gets in. I assume the Kokusan is similar.

Alright dennis !
Yep i'd agree with bundy, the connection to the yellow/black definately needs to be a good soldered and heat shrunk connection (thats best way to do it imho).

I'd personally do this:
[dummies guide to fitting a kill switch] lol

-Attach kill switch to handlebars

-Cut connector on the kill switch and solder two decent (long enough to run from front to rear of bike, for now) length wires to the two wires out of the kill switch. heat shrink these joints ! (best using same coloured wires if possible)

-Run both wires down alongside the main loom and secure there.

- Run one wire to the earth point either on the battery itself (tricky) or to the earth point on the start motor bracket (use a nice crimp connector if possible)

-Run last wire to wherever you feel brave enough to connect to the yellow wire. connect and bobs yer uncle !

I dont happen to know where else the yellow/black wire runs to unfortunately, there may be a different place thats a lot easier. If you HAVE to cut into the middle of the yellow/black wire i'd suggest doing it a good distance away from the cdi unit. If it goes wrong you have some wire to play with and your not trying to cut, strip and solder right next to the cdi.

I'll have a look to try and find somewhere else you can connect to, it may be easier for you to trace the wire if you only have half a loom already !?

Oh sorry one last thing i forgot to mention, whenever working on your electric system the 1ST thing you should do is disconnect the battery (-ve should be fine but +ve also if you wanna be 100% safe), this'll ensure you dont blow anything up lol

so disconnect -ve first, follow above steps then the last thing you do is reconnect the -ve lead (along with your kill switch earth) and then test it works !

good luck

alrite smithy!

tonight is the first bit of spare time ive had in a long while so ive just been to have a look at the berg and followed my yellow and black wire, from the cdi, right through the bike and it comes out near the regulator/rectifier. the good thing is though its not actually connected to anything so im not going to have to start chopping wires up

im thinking i might place the switch at the back of the bike on the subframe. at the moment theres already two buttons on the handlebars so i think another will make it look abit over crowded. I recon i'll earth it to the battery aswell since the wires are going to be in that area.

well in on reminding me about disconnecting the battery smithy, would have deffinately slipped my mind!

im going to get it fitted on tomorrow night so i'll let you know if it works
