So that's an AC bike setup for always on.

What you'll want, instead, is to run the pink wire to the switch, and then the output of the switch to the yellow and white wires (for high and low beam, respectively).

Okay, so it's just pink in - yellow/white out. The switch control has a million wires coming out of it, way more than I'd expect. So I'll have to take it apart to see what I'm doing.

So with this method, is it safe to assume that the headlight will only turn on when the bike is running? Since there isn't any direct power running to the headlight.

So based on the attached diagram, and what we have discussed, it looks like I just need to connect the pink to the red/yellow coming from the controls. Then internally the red/yellow will connect to green when the lights are ON. From green I can power the speedo light. Then yellow is high beam and white is low beam. That sounds fine... but what about the other 5 wires at the top of the control? (brown, orange, green/white, red/white, blue/white)

Orange is DC power. With the headlight switch on, it feeds DC power from the battery to the tail light. Green/white and blue/white provide charging for the battery at different quantities (depending if lights are on or off).

So what should I do with them? They are ignored in the simplified wiring diagram. I already wired up the tail/brake light via the method in the simplified diagram, so the orange I can ignore. But will the battery not receive proper charge if I ignore the green/white and blue/white?

The blue/white alone might be enough. Keep an eye on your voltages.

Alright, I'll give it a shot.

Alright... I hooked it all up last night and no spark. I have power to the tail/brake light which I had already tested, but no spark.

1) I guess my first question is whether or not the regulator needs to be grounded. See attached pictures. This is a new unit, and from what I can tell, it is the only think sending power from the battery to the regulator (red/white - blue/white in the diagram), which then has to send power to the coil via the black/yellow wire. If this is a self grounding unit via a bolt running through it, that could be my issue. If not, then I'll move on.

2) The kill switch wire that they have in the diagram connects the coil ground to the frame. Question is, is grounded going to kill the bike, or not grounded? Based on the stock diagram it looks like grounded will kill the bike.

Other than those two things, everything else looks good. So I'm a little lost.

You sure that's a regulator? Looks like a rectifier to me.

That said, spark is completely controlled by your CDI. Make sure the yellow/black wire isn't grounded.

Sorry, you're right. Rectifier.

I'll make sure we aren't grounded and try again. So the CDI is only getting power via the battery (red) - rectifier (red - red/white) - magneto (white/blue). Then the magneto transfers the power to the CDI which send it to the coil?
