Gen1 Rebel - Wiring Gen2 CDI
I have an 87 rebel i'm restoring. It has a severe hesitation (almost dies) at low rpm/low throttle (about 1500 rpm-ish). Idles good and accelerates great, once past the hesitation. I think i have a bad coil or bad CDI. The hesitation has been there since i got it. Since i got it, i have done the following and the problem still persists.
Replaced jets in carb.
Replaced accelerator pump in carb.
Changed engine from 2005 rebel. (This is because the previous owner destroyed the exhaust manifold bolt holes and the oil drain bolt). I used the stater from the 87 and carb manifold from the 87.
After doing all of this, it still runs the exact same.
I did notice that the cylinder on the clutch side has a week spark compared the the stater side when turning the motor over with the starter with the spark plugs out of the motor against grounded against the head. I think the problem might be a weak coil or bad CDI. I have the CDI and coils from the 2005. I'm going to swap both of the coils and CDI. Looking at posts on this forum, they are wired different. The Gen1 has two separate ignition coil wires and no kick stand wire. So I need to send one of the black/yellow wires to ground and the other to both coils. Easy enough.
Here is my question...
Which yellow/black wire goes to the stator side and which one goes to the clutch side. I can trace it with an ohm meter, but I don't want to buy one just to use it once.
