Default Re: ignition system problems

I got a new cdi and put it in without checking the connections. Still didn`t work. So I checked the voltage with a multimeter on all the wires coming from the Magneto, after struggling to get the magneto plate open (stripped screw), and checking the magneto and wire connections to make sure they looked good. Turns out the black wire was fried because the copper wire pulled apart internally leaving the plastic case intact. I replaced the wire, 18 guage if anyone was wondering. and put new connectors on. the ones connecting the wires are known as bullet connectors. I`m not sure what the loop one that hooks up to a bolt in the magneto is called cuz i dug it out of a spare parts box. So my bike is running now.
