 Post subject: 2006 Honda Ruckus Wiring Ignition. Only three loose wires
PostPosted: Wed Jun 01, 2011 9:47 pm 
Ok so recently I bought a 2006 Honda Ruckus from this kid on craigslist. He lost the key so he had a new ignition put in but he never go to wiring it in. There are only three loose wires but it looks one of them don't even need to be wired. The two loose wires I' am primarily concerned about are both red but one has green line on it and the other has a blue line on it. On the ends of them are battery connectors. The third loose wire is blue but it has a red clip that allows another wire to be pushed in or something like that. Here are the pictures let me know what you think.

blue wire is left alone

First off THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING my question unlike the other people wasting my time! Anyways what your basically saying is hook up the red wires to the ignition switch.

Also for you people who worried if it was stolen or something, I know it wasn't because the previous owner who lost the key was an OLD man and lets just say not all of his marbles were there, so he lost the key and bought universal ignition and he had to bang up the gas tank to fill it up.

Okay after some tinkering around it still won't start. But I got the speedometer gauge to light up so thats good! My problem is I don't know what the red/green and red/blue wires do. I understand they are for ignition but I am not sure how they hook up to the key ignition. The key ignition has 3 spots you can hook up wires to and the spots are labeled:
bat(so I hooked up a wire from their to the positive end of the battery), ign(I am guessing it means ignition), and sol(I am guessing it means solenoid). So I have been testing the red/green + red/blue wires on the sol and ign spots.

1: that ignition switch is not the same as came from the factory.
2: you have to hold the brake so the brake light comes on to use the electric start.
C: there is a service manual available at this link

Thank you for the holding the breaks tip and the manual. After wiring up the wires to the ignition and trying to start it, it still won't start but I am making progress because now it making some little noise from the main relay or load cut relay. So I am getting closer.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Alright so after fully charging the battery, filling it up with new gas, and having the ignition wired I attempted to start it up. The engine is cranking but their is no boom. So I proceeded to test the spark plug and it worked and showed a spark. Then I tried spraying ether into carbs while trying to start it but still no luck. Still clueless on what to do now?

Just curious if you've checked the air filter's condition? Is it clean? Also, check for any cracks in the intake tube. If you have fuel and spark your just missing air. Oh, it could also be an electric choke problem.

Ok so I checked out the air filter and it is fine, their is a crack in the air intake tube but I really doubt that is the problem, and also today I went ahead got it a new spark plug. Then I tried running it off of ether again with the new spark plug and it the scooter tried much harder and longer to start up.

I think the carbs might need cleaning. Any suggestions or other ideas?

A: the crack in the intake IS a problem.
2: clean the carb.
