    Sl 900 cdi upgrade wiring?

    I just installed my updated stator kit on my sl 900. It was pretty straight forward, except, I cant remember which color wire went next to the red one on the reset button. I remember pulling one of it seems. I have a grey or blk/yellow to choose from. I also had two black wires with rings on the end left over (one from the stator and one from the cdi), that I taped off, is this correct? Thanks, Seth

    Reset button (aka circuit breaker) has a single Red wire feeding power from the battery positive heavy wire, via the start solenoid post.

    The other tab on the Reset button is for a Red/Purple wire that feeds power to the terminal board.

    Thanks so much. I had both of the red/purple wires on the circuit board. Are the black wires not needed anymore?

    No! The update kit only eliminates the black wire that goes directly from the battery to the e-box. You need to keep the ground to both the CDI and the stator.

    OK, I cut the black wire from the negative post, but there was a black wire from the cdi, and one from the stator that both have a ring connecor on them. They were not on the old ones. Does anyone know where they go?

    They rings go on the allen-headed bolt that hols the coil pack and starter solenoid down. (On the top half of the e-box)
