WR500 - what am i missing
Totally newbie here,
I have bought a wr500 - 89 model I think, I know my way around a 21 stroke engine fairly well and can figure most things out but i can't figure out what the leads coming from the battery connect to inside the electric box. I think i am missing something but can't work out what.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

thanks. I have that drawing.
So one of the red wires conects to the stator relay or both of them?

I believe you are missing the starter relay...one of those red wires should go to the battery, the other to the starter. Also, there should be a small red wire feeding into the CDI (or perhaps into the voltage regulator? I don't quite remember) that mounts on the same stud as the battery wire.
Hope this helps.

Yes, what he said. Small round starter solenoid with rubber boot that holds it onto those two plastic pegs. Cheap on ebay.
