Ok so, A friend of mine has an 87. We discovered the cdi was bad so we put a 94 cdi wired right to the stator I believe for a few wires. Stator, magneto and rectifier are all from the 94. His headlight is dim, blinkers don't work and brake light doesn't work. Anyone know what else we need to do to correct this? Bike runs great.

You didn't wire it up right.



I have an '87 wiring diagram. Post the stock '94 diagram and you're frankengram and I'll take a look.

buy a volt meter, continuity tester and start checking each circut one at a time. wiring issues are not to hard to figure out but you will have to invest some time

Ok, we just wired the cdi up to the stator as it came off the 94. Plugged the rectifier in and she started up. I run an 87 so don't have a diagram for a 94. My advice to my friend was just to swap the harness off my 94 and whatever other parts we need to. I wasn't sure if there were some simple changes we could make. I will try to track down a 94 wiring diagram.



thanks

They aren't wired the same, so you'll need to figure out all the differences one by one and change the '87 harness accordingly.



It isn't rocket science and it can be done if you understand electricity, wiring diagrams and alternative methods of controlling a circuit. If you don't, you're better off with the '94 harness. It's plug and play since you've already swapped the stator.
