Yeah, OK, I found it. Pretty disappointing. I already have a diagram, i'm looking for actual pics. Oh well.

Hey jdotfite, can we use the radio shack relay part# 275-0218 rating 10A and not 15A like pclh-202d1s?

*Update* Fixed the two issues (missing black wire on left controls and ground added for 3 wire flasher) thx dcee1. I know I have been slacking on the other diagrams, I apologize. I will try to get those up asap. For now, here is the update:

I have been working on a wiring diagram for the past few weeks. It is a work in progress. If you see a mistake or have a comment about it, let me know. It made swapping a whole lot easier and I think it will help a lot of people. The diagram covers everything, CDI, rectifier/regulator, stator, left/right controls, relay for stater, solenoid, ignition, auto-choke, coil etc.

The diagram is for the 11-pole upgrade with a 5 wire CDI, but should still help people with a 6 or 8-pole. I will follow up with a 6-8 pole diagram. You just need to change a few wires. I personally recommend upgrading to an 11-pole, especially if you are running the stock headlights. I do want to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to explain wiring on the forum. I wouldn't have been able to finish my swap without that information. I have finished 4 swaps now and I have learned a lot in the process.

I wish a diagram like this would have been around when I first started! It would have saved me a lot of headache and frustration. :headbashing:

FIXED! :highfive:

Sorry about that. It must be hosted somewhere else, because I am still receiving questions via email on a regular basis. Still looking for feedback - mistakes/changes/etc.

Thanks,
Justin

this is on a gy6 using your complete wiring instructions. Everything worked great when it was first completed, and I rode it for a few months to test everything (and didnt want to stop to finish it ha). I took the harness off and loomed everything up and when I re-installed it, it wouldnt start. I went through and found the starter solenoid wires had been pulled out of the plug. I fixed this, and now it cranks fine and the little LED on the cdi box lights up. Still not starting. I then proceeded to find the ground wire on the ignition coil had a small break in it. Fixed that and tested the ground, its good. I pulled the spark plug, and when grounding to the head, no spark. I checked the coil manually and it works, and the plug will arc. I know this has to be something minor because all I did was loom the harness. I also installed a new 11 pole stator (previous 11 pole failed when i had a sketchy ground which has since been fixed and tested). The wires were different colors on this stator, but i used the old one's wire locations to determine the wiring order, and it seems to work since the cdi lights up. Now all I can figure here is either the cdi failed or shorted out, or I am overlooking something stupid, which is what brings me to you guys. If something seems obvious, please make suggestions. btw everything is soldered and heat shrank, it was just tough to pull the nylon braided looming over the wiring which is what caused these issues in the first place.

thanks a lot

turns out I was sent the wrong stator(one with the yellow, pink, and white wires), instead of the three yellows. These stators will not work with this wiring harness just so everyone knows.

Anyone know where to get the left and right ruckus side control plug? The part that plugs into the harness itself. At least anyone where in the US.

Get a fresh GY6 harness from Fleabay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CHINESE-GY6-150 ... c9&vxp=mtr

and you should be okay. Or if feeling thrifty, from a local scooter shop. It has all the connectors you need. GY6 harness has exact plug for left side control and right side. Also includes a straight connection from Stator to Rectifier and CDI if doing a swap. Beats butchering up stock harness. Hope that helps.
