My bike is down while I wait for a couple parts for the front fork. I decided to do some inspecting in the meantime and found the pickup coil connector wires getting ready to break loose (nearly half the strands were already broken on each wire). In the wiring diagram (clymer manual) it shows the pickup coil wires to be one white and one black with a blue line. This is true for the other connector that the pickup coil plugs into. BUT the pickup coil wires are both white. I pulled out the female spades from the connector to see if I could try and reuse them and make a fresh connection (I can't get the crimp undone so I'll need new ones). One wire broke quite easily. I did forget, however, to make note of which one goes to which side.
I'm assuming polarity is important here?
If I get it backwards, will I damage any electrical components or will it just not run properly?
How should I go about determining which wire is which since the color coding for this part of the circuit does not match the wiring diagram?
The engine has a slight miss here and there, mostly noticeable when you give any percentage of throttle. Not as noticeable at idle. Carb cleaning, tune-up (air filter/spark plugs), carb syncing, valve adjuments did not solve this issue. Could this be the source??
Can anyone identify this connector so I can find the proper spades? Going to bring it to an electronics parts store and see if they can help identify it.
