Question about Motorcycles
Twin engine set up two key switches one kill lanyard kill switch has 2 yellow/ black wires and one black any suggestions of thecorrect wiring?
Hi Steve, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: no spark
It sounds to me like the repair shop has connected the ignition wire ( the wire going to the + side of the coil ) to the wrong switch terminal. Take a volt ohm meter and connect the ground wire to the negitive ( - ) side of the battery and expose the ignition switch terminals. With the switch in the OFF position check for volatge on all the terminals. Make note of any terminals showing a 12 volt reading. That is probably the feed line from your battery. Turn the switch to the ON or RUN position and check for a terminal other than the one which gave you a reading before. note and mark this terminal. Locate the coil. There are 2 thin ( 18 guage ) wires attached to the coil. One goes to the distributer and the other goes to the ignition switch. Isolate that wire and reattach it to the connection on the ignition switch you marked earlier...

if you were to wire it into the orange it will kill the motor.
do you get spark with kill switch on? if so definately wrong.
most kill switches go inline to the coil.
get some fresh fuel and try

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, try with the sidestand folded up and / or the clutch lever pulled in. Likewise determine if there is a clicking sound when the start button is pressed:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.
an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?
