    mystery yellow wire

    'morning all...

    quick intro: new (to me) '87. bought it a couple months ago off of craigslist and promptly tore it all down; and with the help of this forum, spent some money, managed some mods and am looking forward to some trail riding this winter (it's too hot in the summer here in tucson, az).

    discovered a yellow wire without a mate. did a quick search here but no luck.

    gave the '87-only schematic a once over and still no luck.

    any ideas?

    thanks!

    Have you traced each yellow wire according to the schematic?

    In most cases, the yellow wire is often the airbag. So unless you want the steering wheel to punch you in the face, you should probably just leave it alone.

    According to the manual - yes - that's for an '87

    The 1988 to 2000 model is here as well

    hej all,

    thanks for all the input, advice, and just plain funny comments. all very much appreciated.

    however, I think I figured it out. I have a post '87 CDI on the bike.

    thanks to Purple for providing the '88-'00 schematic with a yellow lead from the CDI that the '87-only schematic does not show.

    here's a better picture showing it attached to the CDI loom:

    thanks again!

    and for those of us which are visually impaired (i.e. we need magnification to see small pitchers!)
