Ignition switch wiring help? 6 wire to 4 wire switch?
My bike has had a bit of a "wobbly" ignition switch. It's a Gen 1 2002 model. I ordered a new lockset (auction site) which came with an ignition switch, petrol cap and seat lock. Great I thought.
I tried to do a swop over of the ignition switches but found that my original 2002 switch has a 4 wire and a 2 wire (6 wires in total) wiring set up but the new switch only has the connector block with the 4 wires.
I'm in no way an expert on these things but the new switch connects to the wiring harness and allows the bike to crank over but not to start. So Im guessing the additional 2 wire original connector block must send a signal to something that allows the bike to spark thus allowing the engine to run?
I don't have a wiring diagram at the moment so can anybody please give any suggestions to what I might be able to do? I'm struggling to find a 4+2 (6 wire) new ignition switch and I'm at the point of being nervous to go out on the bike in case the old switch calls it a day and leaves me stranded at the side of the road.
I've had a bit of a search thru the site but cant find anything that could get me going in the right direction.
Thank you in advance.
