Well, Dropbox account, uploaded photos and then tried to copy a link but just receive a circling ring on and on, so some problem remains. One step closer though. I just bought a new laptop but not finished set-up. Maybe the extra horsepower will do the job?

Apologies and thanks for tolerating the sidetracking.



Main wiring plugs under the dash:
The plugs, viewed from the font of the bike, looking toward the rear are identified in the Clymer manual left to right as A, B, C, D, & E.

Plug A is a six pin. Pins are numbered in rows starting at the top, left.
1- Yellow/Red
2- Black/White
3- Brown
4- empty
5- Blue
6- Black/Yellow
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Plug B is a nine pin. Pins are numbered in rows starting at the top, left.

1- Brown/White
2- Black/Yellow
3- Red
4- Grey
5- Red/Black
6- Light Green
7- Green
8- Yellow
9- Black

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Plug C is a six pin. Pins are numbered in rows starting at the top, left.

1- White
2- Black/Yellow
3- Red/Yellow
4- Brown
5- Black/White
6- Red

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Plug D is a nine pin. Pins are numbered in rows starting at the top, left.

1- Red
2- Red/Black
3- Green
4- Black
5- Black/Yellow
6- Orange
7- Red/Yellow
8- Blue/White
9- Grey

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Plug E is a three pin. Pins are numbered in rows starting at the top, left.

1- Light Green
2- Blue/Red
3- Black/Yellow

ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!

Any moderator within reach of my keyboard!!!!!!!!!!!

STICKY this thread here, or in "How-to's and Tech Guides!"

Good work, Normk; thanks!

I would second the comments of Damocles. This is valuable information Normk has taken the time and trouble to provide here. It is appreciated!

My son tells me that he may have a solution to my problem of having Drop Box images show up in my posts rather than simply showing the links. That may solve that annoying whining noise you hear from time to time. ;-)

I thought it might be useful to post the VRR pin out with a bit of explanation. I will try to post a photo/sketch later to see if that works.

Gen1 VRR (Voltage Regulator Rectifier) is located under the seat with the plug directed to the left side. Facing the plug, there are two rows of three wires, one row above the other.

Top row 1, 2, 3
Bottom row 4, 5, 6

1- White- power output wire to system +
2- Brown with white tracer- voltage reference or sense wire to wiring harness
3- Black with yellow tracer- ground wire to common ground & frame

4, 5, 6 - Yellow- stator output wires which bring AC from the stator. These can be in any position.

I will write a detailed charging system analysis and post to a separate thread. IME, these descriptions help to diagnose by increasing understanding.

A little this and a little that, back and forth

"Well, that's quite a switch!" Tom said electrically.

Tom

Overcame your resistance, I see. ;-)

Charge! I have a battery of electrical puns. :)

"But, what is that switch in the link intended for?" Tom toggled...

Tom

There must be a multiple clip board turned on because it was supposed to be an updated link to the Gen1 wiring information. Sorry for my confusion.

The switch is for a CDI coil tester which I posted elsewhere. I made three of them yesterday, two for technician friends. It used a resistor to limit capacitor charging rate, a diode in series with that to 1/2 wave rectify, the DPDT switch alternates connecting a capacitor between (normally closed) 120 Volt AC and (normally open) a pair of jumper leads connected to the CDI ignition coil. Hook up to coil, hook up spark plug or spark checker to coil lead and ground, plug in tester to AC, wait a few seconds then push button and see spark from spark plug or spark checker. Repeat.

I thought you were making electrical puns, Tom.

"I'm shocked that you would think I'd ever be less than entirely serious", Tom said in an electrified tone.

By the by, a good job on the pin-outs and pictures. I really should get going on the Gen2 harness but I'm afraid if I did I'd lose steam on the oil pressure experiments (as if I'm moving out on that, even).

Now, I'm going to do a wee shuffle and pull these posts into one post.

I can't understand why no one has offered to take some photos of the bike wiring. That would get things going. I understand the time and energy balance so wouldn't want you to divert from the oiling project as best to get one completed rather than to have two in moth balls. I can likely find someone around here to strip off the Tupperware and that would likely be the best as can do the wiring color and positions easier directly.

Aw, let's let it lie for a bit. I have the Gen2 and an extra harness. It won't take much once I get started on it and all the pictures will be in the same lighting and such like that.
