I also make sure the blue wire isn't exposed & doesn't come in contact with any part of the bike.
That spurs another question, if I didnt remove the white wire and did not protect it from contacting something else could that ruin either the magneto or CDI along with shorting out the ignition or would it correct itself once the white wire did not touch any other metal and the short was corrected?
