Hello. I'm looking for advice. I have a LI125 III. I have a new (2018) Varitronic Ignition. I'm confused as to how to wire this up. My kit came with a wiring diagram printed on the back of the cardboard packaging. I also have a diagram which is printed on paper. The two diagrams are not completely the same. And these instructions are translated poorly which adds to my confusion. My main point of confusion has to do with the single wire that goes to terminal #1 on the coil. I need to know what color that wire needs to be. I have 4 wires coming from my electronic ignition. BLUE, YELLOW, RED & RED/WHITE. In the diagram printed on the back of the packaging, they list wire 1 as RED/BLACK. (Note: This diagram also lists wire 4 as RED/WHITE) In the diagram printed on the piece of paper (found in the kit) wire 1 is listed as RED [thee BLACK is crossed out]. Wire 4 is listed as WHITE [red is crossed out] This is what I have so far... The old electrical harness in the grey tube contains a PINK, VIOLET, BROWN and twin GREENS. I see that the wiring diagram states that the twin GREENS are not used. PINK, VIOLET & BROWN go to terminal 3 in conjunction with the YELLOW wire from the new electronic ignition harness. Its clear that the BLUE wire from the new harness goes to GROUND and also connects to terminal 2 on the regulator and terminal on the coil. I don't have a battery so I don't need to worry about terminal 4 or B+. So that leaves me with two wires that must go to terminal 1 on the coil. But which one?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
So, I've been riding along, 20 miles or so on rural roads, hot day. Get back into town and get caught at stop lights after stoplight. I normally goose the throttle slightly when stopped at idle, habit of old days, and it just dies. No coughing or stuttering like lack of fuel, just stops. Starts right back up after a few kicks, drive 4-5 blocks, happens again. Does it a total of four times in a two mile stretch. Got home and poked a borescope in the plug hole, no signs of seizing on the barrel. My thoughts are ignition related. Plug looks good, spark gap is OK. Nice blue, but not so fat spark. Compression checker shows 115psi. I'm gonna check the points gap, but looking for other ideas? Li150, no go fast parts or anything, completely stock.
