Re: 1979 Maico 250 Enduro Wiring
With Steering lock on headstock and correct tank using the plug in black connector Bosch ignition - she looks great and pulls like a train....
My problem is that I am entered into an Enduro in France (I am in England) on the 14th October and the bike must have working lights.....It has a headlight and Tail light but no wiring connecting them. There are several spare wires taped up under the tank I am quite happy to carry out the wiring I just need to know the colours to use...and how to check them I have a multimeter available.
It has a horn attached and I have bought a high/low /horn switch , as well as a rear brake light switch...,I have written this motoplat instruction quite a while back:
Right at the bottom is the color coding for the lightning wires.,,,

More than likely, a 2 stroke engine is very picky about the fuel mixture. Try and find a new one. there is a DT owners club and most club trials riders will be able to tell you where to find one. Or try "Wemoto" on the web. they may have the bit you are looking for.
To keep a battery charged you require several things, source coils and magneto (on end of crankshaft) leads from which should go to a rectifier/regulator, ignition coil and the cdi unit or black box. Leads from the black box and magneto should trace back thru' a fuse to a battery if a battery is required. However, Enduro lighting and ignition systems were developed without batteries in mind mostly.
you need a micrometere or vernier caliper to measure how thick they are that how you tell how worn the clutch is. the manual will list the specificational limit (how thin you should allow them to get and how do the basket and innser hub looks like). if they have small teeth on them they are worn.,
u can take the current ones off by simply heating them to warm the cement then pull...if that doesnt work u could use a razor blade but bake sure that u dont cut anything.
you could put the wire around the grip if u want its all up to u.
