Nothing to add on wiring for the moment !

Picked up a KTM 300 2smoke to part out if not build for fun always wanted some form of dirt tracker ???? Also picked a 84 nighthawk 700c with a blown motor to the point the 2nd cylinder connecting rod is sticking out the back of the motor lol so I'm parting it out to a few guys here first . its a shame because its a very clean bike with a title . anyways I'm keeping a few parts , like the shocks ....

There a few other small things that might change ! The nighthawk has a neat lil gear indicator I might have a look at to see how it works will see ... Here's a pick of the nighthawk s motor....

OK so befor I try and fire the 500 up again I would like to make sure I have the RR right its the only thing I'm not 100% . the RR is from matt ( SPARCKMOTO.com for Honda 4s on my Yamaha 500 !

Honda R/R = 3 yellow wires Yamaha wires = 3 white So that's a no brainer
1 green
1 red
1 black
1 white

As for the Yamaha plug = has a green,black,blue,and what looks like white all in plug comeing from the motor including the 3 white to 3 yellow on the RR .
on my Yamaha wiring diagram says this = Green =AC generater
black = ground
blue = main switch
white = ???
So after talking to matt on the Honda RR works like this ....

3 yellow = 3 white ( Check )
black = voltage sensing ( power sources that's always on )blue or brown on Yamaha
white = is power wire that leads to exciter for alternator
red = ???

Right now I have the wires like this 3 yellow to white
1 black to key on
1 green to green on plug to motor
1 white to white on motor
1 red to power ( + on battery )

So sound right , seems right but not 100% any help out there befor I try and fire this up ?

Well its fired back up after a small problem with the lighting wire , didn't have a lead to the key right . Now just need to make sure its charging right reset the carbs and few small things and hope to have it out on the road again to see if alls good !

I reject your reality, and substitute my own!
If I still had ready access to mine, I'd be some help, since I did the Honda R/R on mine as well.... But I don't, so I'm not.

Wooohooo, hope all goes well. Been a long haul but looks like all the bugs are worked out now.
It did mike thanks ! Just took it out around the block and charging seemed to be working altho I think I need to change the gas ,change rear spocket, look over points,and take it back out soon as I find a spocket need to go up a few teeth . From a dead stop its a dog but once you get moving it has no problem ! Has a stock RD400 rear and stock XS500 front good for speed bad for around town lol
