    Riva CDI quick question

    I was installing my Riva cdi in my GP1200 and everything was going good until the end. My question is, does the purple wire coming off the CDI hook up to the light green wire?? The instruction manual leaves a lot to be desired. Lastly does that green, female end, wire not hook up to anything?

    Metal I got a box in the garage I will check tomorrow the green wires are for the charging coil I do not have A riva CDI but I believe I can at least tell you where they go on an oem. Maybe J-Me will jump in he has lots of Riva experience.

    Both greens are used, purple is not.

    PDF is available on Riva's site under performance products installation instructions.

    Okay, I will zip tie the purple wire and not use it. Now I need to know where thoese green wires plug into. Hopefully bill will shoot me a photo. I will check the service manual in the meantime.

    Greens are from the lighting coils. Also goes to the rectifier.

    I got it all figured otu but my one question is does it matter which green from the lighting coil goes where? There are 2 greens. My thought is no.
