Hey guys,

Wiring up a security system on my SR50 and hit a small snag. I dig the red wire/blue wire debate and cut the green/yellow wire - but my scooter still starts!!! From what I could work out from the manual that was the positive leading up to the start button. I obviously cut something else, perhaps the lights to the dash or something :(

Anyways, I now notice there are TWO runs of cables leading up to the dash - one wrapped in tape (easy to get to and the one I was working from) and one encased in a solid tube... I take it there's another green/yellow wire within that...?

P.S. If it helps anyone else the systems all say to flash the tail lights, since bikes obviously don't have a hazard cable, but I've instead implemented my own hazard setup. Simply hooked up a pair of diodes to each indicator and then shorted them to the security system - thus it can flash both left & right together but when indicating the left/right will still operate independantly as normal. Tested and worked a treat.

My original huntch, before settling on green/yellow, was the yellow/red...

So...

I've now cut that...

Starter is now dead - phew! :banana:
