Hey All

I'm new here. Just thought I'd drop in and introduce myself. My name is Matt. I live just east of Cincinnati. I've got a 2004 Gettin' High with a 100" RevTec and a 6 speed. Currently in the process of re-wiring the bike. I came here in hopes of finding some info/diagrams, etc. Previous owner didn't take care of the bike at all. It looks like the bike had some wiring issues before because there were wires spliced everywhere on the bike. Anyway, I've pulled all the wires out of the frame and I'm ready to start fresh. I emailed Redneck and asked about getting a general diagram or some other info about how they wire these things, but I haven't heard back yet.

Anyway, glad to be here. Looks like there is a wealth of info here.

Here is a diagram that I used on my bike..just start with this circuit and one wire at a time, unless you are planning on buying a harness, single wires are easier..I f you have any questions, just ask.....you have some talented guys in the forum..
next would be the starter circuit..if you are interested, i could post it too..

Hey, thanks for that. I'll take any info you can give. I'm mechanically inclined, but this is the first time that I've ever re-wired a bike. I just want to make sure I do it right. My plan was to do single wires in case I were to have a problem down the road. It'll be much easier to trace it and replace it if I have to.

Highly recommend the the harness from Scooters. Comes with everything you need... Each wire printed with where it goes. Just cut to length, run the wires, add the terminals (provided), solder and shrink wrap. Great harness if your not sure of what goes where.

Is the harness fairy easy to pull through the frame? I have never used one but you mention that the wires are extra long, sounds good...

Just saw this. I've been out in the garage pulling wires through the frame. LOL! Anyway, I've got everything run but the headlight. That'll have to wait until tomorrow. I'll definitely check out that harness. I didn't know they made one for these bikes. Thanks for the info. Much appreciated.

Yeah, It's killing me. It's been sitting in the garage since the end of summer, not running. I put it on hold to remodel the basement in the house, but since that's done, It's time to get her running again.

There is a method to the madness.........I think.....

The link shows our basic harness. We built the harness around a very similar bike to yours. We used to build 4-6 a year for a local guy that resold them. We use a car start style key switch to eliminate switches on the bars. We supply a toggle for hi-lo beam and wire the lights through the starter relay to reduce electrical draw while cranking. It is very versatile and will work with hand controls that have switches you just have to follow the instructions and lay out to match your bike. Here is a link to the instructions.

Ok, so I'm all wired up, but I've got a slight problem. I'm using a basic automotive ignition switch like this:



I've got 12v on the "BAT" terminal. The lights (Headlight/Tail light) are on the "ACC" terminal, the Ignition is on the "IGN" terminal, and the starter is on the "ST" terminal. Now, when I turn the key to the "ACC" position, the starter engages. If I turn the key the other way to the "On" position, it doesn't engage. I didn't rotate the key to the start position to see what it would do, but I'm assuming that it will engage the starter like it should. So, in a nutshell, when the key is placed in the "ACC" position, the starter engages. What did I do wrong???

(Also, the starter wire is a single wire, run by itself to the starter. It's not tied in with anything else)

Ok, so I made a post earlier today, but it said it had to be approved by a moderator before it would be visible. I'm assuming because it had a picture in the post........

Anyway, I'm all wired up, but I've got a slight problem. I'm using one of those automotive ignition switches that you would get at AutoZone. I've got a hot wire (fused 30A) running up to the switch. It's connected to the terminal labeled "BAT". I've got the ignition run to the switch, connected to the terminal labeled "IGN" I've got my lights wired to the "ACC" terminal. ( I only have headlight and tail light. No turns) I ran a wire from the starter (small connector) up to the switch, and it's connected to the "ST" terminal.

Now, when I take the key and turn it to the "ACC" position, the starter engages. If I go the other way to the "On" position, it doesn't engage. I didn't take it to the start position, but I'm going to assume that if I did, the starter would engage. My question is this....... Why would my starter engage when I turn the key to the "ACC" postion? What did I do wrong? I'm sure it's something simple, but I'm standing here scratching my head........

Does the switch have the spring..or start function..to engage a starter? if so...Do you have an ohms meter?.....place it across two of the terminals and try to find the two that give the reading when you turn the switch the engage position.....and use those,you just have your wires crossed..

Yeah, it does have the "spring" start function to engage the starter. The ACC is the other way on the switch though. What I mean by this is, if I'm sitting on the bike ,and I want to turn just the lights on, I'll turn the key forward (This is the one that engages the starter as of right now, but shouldn't). If I want to start it, I'll turn the key backwards. I do have a meter. I'll check it in the morning. I'm working night shift this week, so I'll have all day tomorrow to mess with it. I won't rule out that I've got wires crossed up too. I'm pretty sure I don't, but I'll def. double check.
