Wiring for 89 Ninja ZX750 H1
Hi all, I just bought an 89 ZX7 with some electrical issues. It wasn't till right after I paid for the bike that the problems started when I tried to start it to ride it home. When I pressed the start button, the small wire going to the solenoid got hot and started to smoke. I ended up putting the bike in a van and brought it home. I think someone may have used a solenoid that is for a different bike which is why some of the wires have been mickey moused. It appears that they ran their own wires from the start button up on the handlebars to the solenoid rather than going through the wiring harness. I have cut off the "added on" wires and reattached the stock green connector to the end of the wires on the start, off/run buttons, but do not see where to plug it in, I just know that it connects somewhere near the front of the bike by the length of the wires. I also do not know where the small wire for the solenoid goes, I just know that it must connect into the main wiring harness somewhere. Is there a manual or pictures on the web somewhere that would have actual pictures of these, the connectors, and where they plug into rather than just a wiring diagram? Wiring diagrams confuse me and I have a hard time trying to figure them out. I would like to ride the bike before the summer is over. thanks in advance.
