    HELP!!! 96 SL 700 will not crank after top end rebuild. What am Ii missing?

    I am doing a top end on my SL 700 and I hooked the battery back up to crank it over and make sure everything is good and nothing. I have power to the CDI but not to the starter. What am I missing. It was working fine when I tore it down.

    I have done the red wire mod and I have attached pictures of that. Also there is no power on the orange busbar

    If you don't have the upgraded ignition, make sure the small ground wire is connected to the battery.....done that more than once on the 'cane.

    Isn't orange only powered when the engine is running?

    I did that at the ramp one day. Took about 10 minutes to figure out what was going on. Almost ruined my day!
