Yes all motorcycles have an alt. its on the left side case its in the engine and what you have to do is remove the cover which may have around 6 - 8 bolts on it. cdi is not an alternator it stands for capacitor discharge ignition and it is an ignition unit . BTW which make amd model is ur motorcycle. the locations may change on some models.

Really confused, and searching around on the net made me more confused...I just bought my first 200 cc yamaha qaud bike, 2 stroke. Do I need to throw in alternative oil into the engine, or is the mixture...

On these engines, the two cycle oil is for lubrication of the crankshaft, rod bearings and piston wrist pin during operation. The transmission is separate from the moving engine components and requires oil for lubrication of the bearings, shafts and gears. There should be an oil port on the top of the transmission case for filling. Some have a dip stick on them and some have a site glass in the side of the transmission housing to visually see the level of the oil.

There is no place to add additional "oil to the engine" as you ask, but as the engine and transmission cases are attached at the base of the cylinder, its easy to see how someone can assume the transmission oil may be engine oil. Its not. The transmission oil also serves duty as lubricant for many motorcycle and 4 wheelers 'wet clutch' assembly as well. Low oil in the transmission could be detrimental to the clutch discs.

Im rebuilding a kawasaki 125cc 2 stroke dirt bike and need to know what the yellow and white wires coming from the motor connect to

If it's coming from the lower case of the engine, most likely they're the alternator wires, and they need to connect to the voltage regulator.

Is the engine 2 stroke or 4 stroke

Honda engines are traditionally 4 stroke. If the exhaust comes out of the head it is a 4 stroke, if the exhaust comes out of the cylinder it is a two stroke.
