I hate to say this, but I personally don't believe a universal ignition like that will work for your 250. I think you're going to have to go for an exact replacement design. That doesn't mean it has to be the same manufacturer, but at least match the specs at locations for wires as your original does.

SOURCE: i have a 1984 harley

I can send you a complete wiring diagram for your Sportster. The wires you are talking about go to the stock igniton unit, the "brain box" or "black box" that is behind the triangular plate on the right side of the bike as best as I can remember (1984 was a long time ago). There should be two white wires on the coil and one is the "hot" wire and the other goes to the ignition unit. The pink wire goes to the tachometer. The blue wire goes to the opposite side of the coil from the white wire, same side as the pink wire. The black wire is a ground wire for the igntion unit most likely. But, I'm confused by you saying the wires go to a "sensor". The only sensor on the bike is in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine and the wires coming from it are different color from what you mention. Are you sure it's not simply a plug? Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you the diagram. Remind me of what you need.

Why is my 97 Honda 4 wheeler not getting fire


There are three items that are connected together needed to create spark on your 1997 Honda 4-wheeler, regardless of which model it is.
Before we go through a checklist of these three important parts, look for a black wire with a white stripe that runs to the ignition switch and kill button from the CDI box. Disconnect this wire before it gets to the ignition switch and kill button, then check for spark. The most likely cause is a broken kill switch on the handlebar, or shorted ignition switch. Such a condition grounds this wire and kills the spark.
If this test did not restore the spark, continue reading...
Here is what is required to create a spark.

First, the alternator has one coil which generates a high voltage--about 125 Volts AC for the CDI ignitor box.

Second, there is a pulse voltage generated once every revolution of the engine that goes to the CDI box. This pulse causes the CDI to dump its stored energy from the 125 volt line into the primary of the ignition coil.

Third, If the two connections of the wire that runs from the CDI to the Coil are BOTH SHINY clean, the ignition coil will generate a spark.

If any one of these 3 don't happen, the spark will go away. Of these three, item 3 -- one or two tarnished and/or dirty connectors -- is the most likely cause. Just an added resistance of 0.3 Ohms or more in the CDI to Coil connections will cause the ignition to fail. No other wires have to be this clean.

Wantneed diagram for G.E. TL412CP sub panel


Do you have any wiring in the panel already? The green or bare copper wires will go the ground bar which will be screwed directly on to the inside of the box. The ground bar will be in contact with the box. If the mains are wired into the main lugs the main ground will have a green stripe or it may be bare multi strand aluminum. All ground wires go under screws individually on the ground bar. The white wires go onto the neutral bar. The neutral bar will be affixed to the inside of the box on plastic isolators that do not allow contact with the metal panel. The main neutral will have a white stripe or it may be solid white. The neutrals will go under individual screws. The hot wires will now go under the screws of the breakers. All screws must be tightned firmly but not as tight as you possibly can. The hots will be black or red. The wires should alternate black, red, black, red. Begin with black on the top two breakers the one left and the one on the right. The hot wires will be either black or red.

Where is the ignition control module on an 1989 totota camry


Toyota Camry 1983-1996 Repair Guide Ignition Module - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

External
All engines, except the 2S-ELC, have an external igniter.
  1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Separate the wiring harness connections.
  3. Unbolt the igniter.
  4. Loosen the nut holding the wire lead onto the coil.
  5. Tag and disconnect the wire lead.
  6. Lift the igniter off its mount.

To install:
  1. Mount the igniter to the bracket.
  2. Attach the wire lead to the coil.
  3. Connect the harness.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable. Reset any digital equipment such as radio memory and the clock if necessary.

Internal
REMOVING IGNITER WITH DISTRIBUTOR
See Figure 1
The internal igniter is only applicable to 2S-ELC engine Camry models. All other engines are equipped with an external igniter assembly.
Review the complete service procedure before this repair. Note position, color of wire and routing of all internal distributor assembly wiring.
  1. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal.
  2. Remove the number one spark plug. Place a finger over the spark plug hole and rotate the crankshaft clockwise to top dead center. When there is pressure felt on the finger at the spark plug hole, this will be top dead center of the compression stroke on number one cylinder. If not, repeat the procedure. Install the number one spark plug.
  3. Mark the position of the distributor flange in relation to the camshaft housing. Remove the IIA distributor assembly.
  4. Remove the distributor cap with the wires attached, and remove the packing. Mark the position of the rotor relative to the housing and pull the rotor straight up and off the shaft. The distributor cap is held to the housing with three retaining screws.
  5. Remove the ignition coil dust cover.
  6. Remove the two nuts and spring washers and disconnect the four wires from the terminals on the side of the ignition coil. The wires are color coded yellow, blue, brown and red.
  7. Remove the four retaining screws and remove the ignition coil and packing.
  8. Remove the nuts and disconnect the pink, white and black wires from the igniter terminals. Remove the two igniter retaining screws and remove the igniter.

To install:
  1. Attach the new igniter with the two retaining screws. Connect the pink, black and white wires to their respective terminals and install the nuts. Make sure that the pick-up coil wires are secured in their clips and that there is slack in the wires.
  2. Install the ignition coil and attach it with the four retaining screws.
  3. Connect the four ignition coil wires to their respective terminals and install the two nuts and spring washers.
  4. Install the coil dust cover and push the rotor onto the shaft.
  5. Place the distributor cap and wires into position. Install and tighten the retaining screws.
  6. Install the distributor assembly and connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Connect a tachometer and timing light to the engine and adjust the ignition timing.

Fig. 1: Make sure you remember where the colored wires attach for installation-2S-ELC engine
  1. Reset any digital equipment such as radio memory and the clock if necessary.

REMOVING IGNITER WITHOUT REMOVING DISTRIBUTOR
  1. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and di-electric insulator covers. Disconnect the red and yellow wires from the coil and the pink, white and black wires from the igniter.
  2. Remove the igniter. It may be necessary to mark and rotate the distributor to gain access to the igniter retaining screws. The timing should be checked after the distributor is returned to the mark.

To install:
  1. Install the new igniter using the two new retaining screws.
  2. Twist the pick-up coil wires together, install the white wire first then pink and black wires to their original locations. Make sure the wires do not touch the housing generator or advance plate.
  3. Route the red and yellow wires from the igniter so they do not contact moving parts. Connect the red wire to the right coil terminal (with the brown wire) and the yellow wire to the left terminal (with the blue wire). Replace the covers, rotor and cap.
  4. Connect a tachometer and timing light to the engine and adjust the ignition timing.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

Hi nd welcome to FixYa,

On a Honda CB550K, wiring would be:
  • blue - from ignition coil to contact breaker;
  • yellow - from ignition coil to contact breaker;
  • black/white - to the ignition coils from the emergency switch (engine off);
  • red - from the center fuse of the fuse bank to the ignition switch;
  • black - ignition +12 from ignition switch;
  • black/red - I don't recall a black/red wire on the harness.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
