lol so much work to remove a key....
if (C) works, you won't need the resistor at all as you get the full 12V to the CDII asked the same question Svenseman, here's the resonse I got:
"Connecting it in parallel as in C makes it work, in series it apparently doesn't. Dunno how it works but it goes along the same lines as bulbs - if you connect bulbs in parallel the bulbs have to be the same as the same input voltage but if you connect them in series you divide the input voltage by the amount of bulbs (which are acting as resistors) and that gives the voltage each bulb needs to be.
So in parallel if it was 110v input the bulbs would all be 110v no matter how many you use, in series if you had 10 bulbs with the 110v input the bulbs would each be only 11v."
That kinda stuff is getting over my head to understand how it works, I just want to be able to do what needs to be done to get it running at this point.
I work with electronics and I strongly believe either A or B will work. If you were to try C and it was wrong you would blow a fuse, but if you are wrong with A or B (which are really the same thing) then nothing would go wrong, it just wouldn't work.Ok, I'd be inclined to believe you and try A/B first.
One question though, is there any danger of frying something if I try the wrong one first??
I knew Doug would chime in here.You only need one resitor.
Orange/red...just a switch. power...ignition
brown/grey...just a switch....lights
black/white & orange /yellow...is the only one that needs a resitor...1/2 watt, 100 Ohm...and you can trace wires all the way back to CDI...and just snip the wires... can be done an inch from CDI...just solder one end to black/white wire, and other end to orange/yellow.
yeah, its no big deal. All that circuit is, like most post 2000 Zuk's( maybe before too....not my knowledge base)...use resistance as a way of knowing something that should be there, is there. In this case...its so the ECU knows the keyed ignition is still there and some fool aint trying to hotwire the bike.I knew Doug would chime in here.
So you'd only need two switches then right? the one in question would be always connected.
