 Post subject: Help with Gy6 Wiring (stock Harness)
PostPosted: Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:59 am 
I am very close to completing my gy6 build. I was using the battlescooter write up on how to wiring the gy6 using the stock ruckus harness, and have everything hooked up following their instructions to the best of my ability. My issue is that the engine wont fire... I believe I have a grounding issue and I am going to look into that when I get a chance to work on it... I found a couple other write ups on here but cant see the photos associated with the write ups since photobucket decided to make it impossible to view them without a paid subscription...

I didn't wanna start a new thread but need photos really bad to see what I need to do with the wiring. Seeing as how I have never done wiring before I need as much direction as possible and the battlescooter write up is vague at best..

What harness are you using?

Can you post pics of what you have already done?

You can look through build threads, (*ahem* pg17) and get some ideas, since many have posted that as part of their threads. There is no right or wrong way to do what's under the battery box. Just zip it in tight and put the cover over it. It might look like a birds nest, but that's why cover it.

The stock GET harness won't work with a GY6. There are shops that will modify it for you but I've never heard great things about doing it that way. But it can, and is, done. But bone stock no va, no beuno.

The typical harness is an ATR or Dan Maxx. Both require that you modify a whole bunch of stuff, the fuel pump, the CDI, the rectifier , the starting mechanism, etc. You also get rid of the ECU.

Yeah. That's the way of doing the harness I was talking about.

But do the usual, bust out the multi meter and make sure all those spade terminals are good end to end. Try the screwdriver across the starter solenoid trick.

Chances are it's a bad ground so check all those. Make sure they are touching metal not powder or paint. Make sure the front and rear frame are on the same ground... er grounded together.

Dunno.
