Need Help on Ignition Wiring
Went to FINALLY start the build bike and it was a no go...got fuel and no spark. This is an ultima setup (motor,harness and "stock" ultima ignition)". This is my first build so im learning as I go..I have all the wiring in frame where posssible and all the wires covered with wire covering to give a clean look (and make it a BITCH to get to! lol). Well after some trouble shooting I found out I have no power to the module. The wiring HARNESS diagram shows a wire (white/black) from the harness that says it goes to the + side of the coil. The IGNITION MODULE wiring diagram says to "find the "white wire that has power going to it when BOTH the key and the run/stop switches are on" It states that "some MODELS have only a single white/black wire" It then says to "attach this AND the white wire from the ignition to the coil+......
My MODULE has no white/black wire. It DOES however have a white wire. Now the wiring HARNESS does have a white/black wire it shows to run to the + side of the coil....(no power though going to it at any point though.....)
I have NO wire from the HARNESS that has power going to it when BOTH the key and run/stop switches are on...( I am not using a run/stop switch. I have a WCC Pollock brand switch that has off,run and start)
My question is this...since none of my wires have power when BOTH are on can I just run a wire from the "RUN" post of the switch to the the ignition + side? When I do this I then get power to the ignition module anytime the ignition key is in any position other than "off"
Thanks folks for the help ( i hope!)
