Starter Relay Connector on a '94 ZX9R

Hi folks, I just acquired a '94 ZX9R that the PO butchered the wiring on. They fried the starter relay, and rather than replacing it, they tried to bypass it. I got a new starter relay, but they took the connector off the wires, and I don't know which wires go where

I see in my diagrams that it's just the big white wire, the black/yellow wire, and the yellow/red wire, and the of course the big positive battery wire and starter wire. Can anyone tell me or post a picture of their starter relay connector so I know which wires go where? I've looked high and low and haven't had any luck.

Thanks in advance!

well, for the most part, all kawi wiring systems are the same. this is a car solenoid retrofit i did on my 2000 ZX7R.. but the wiring hasn't changed. and the wiring should be the same on your shit as well.





so, looking at it with the fuse cover at the top

_ _ Y/B Y
_ _ (X) W


white is power out to the bike. yellow is starter solenoid control power. y/b is ground.

Shweet! Just what I needed! I'm guessing my yellow/red is the same as your yellow wire. So nothing's supposed to go in the 4th connector, I take it?

nope that is just kawi being "cheap" using a 4-pin connector so they don't have to special-order a 3 pin one.

they do that all over the electrical system. bet theres 5 wires in the 6-wire connector for your keyswitch as well
;)

It turns over cause they just put a button between the positive terminal and the starter wire. I'm just not sure the ignition is actually on, cause it won't fire. I'm also not sure the fuel pump is running.

I think the only thing they butchered is the starter relay wires, as everything else looks intact. Who knows, though. Figured I'd at least try fixing the obvious stuff, and if it still doesn't work, there's a full harness on eBay for $50.

you might want to just pick up that harness if the price is right.
unless you take the harness apart, how do you know its just the relay?

That's true, there could be more problems elsewhere. However, it could also be in the ignition switch, kill switch, kickstand switch, etc. The only way to know for sure is to just bypass all those bastards. I'm gonna start there. And if it turns out that I have one or two bad wires in my harness, while $50 is a decent deal for a whole harness, it shouldn't be difficult to mend or bypass bad wiring. That being the benefit of working on a bike instead of a car. :D
