What motor is this???

The green one is GND and it must be connected to GND, the black side goes to the CDI.

Mac, it's our alltime favourite chinese generic gy6 ...

Heres the cdi. I'm sure that's the positive?

Are you asking if you are sure? Then surely, you can't be positive. If you were positive that you were positive then you'd surely be sure.

Sorry. Never seen a GY6 in real life.

Starting a sentence with "I'm sure..." and ending with a question mark is confusing to the reader. But I will assume you were born on February 16, 1987.

Ya... I'm slipping.... But hey...I also have never seen one of these china motors before....

I had something to say but ended up deleting it and went with the above... More or less... We have been getting a number of these "odd ball" parts question that don't have the common association of the clones we're used to around here... But needing more info right off the bat on stuff like this... Especially when it's generally questioned...

I'd almost think we would need a seperate section for all the china karts and there associated parts(frame types, motor types..) not having a commonality with the NA made(styled) types

Just read something on this..on my fzr 600 diagram black is ground and other colors positive check out diagram for motor you are using

Uhm ..
1) OP is gone (that's why he deleted all his posts)
2) the question is NOT about wire colors but terminal markings
3) terminal markings are unlikely to be found in a wiring diagram
and as a personal note:
4) comparing a quality made motorcycle (Yamaha) with a generic chinese crab eninge (gy6) is blasphemic!


Oh OP is NOT gone... strange...
cls the green marking still is the ground terminal on the coil ;)

Cls, I will apologise on behalf of certain member's harsh comments (I keep telling them to be nice to noobs :mad:)

No, this is not an english class; yes, we are here to help (well, most of us)...

I assume you're having issues trying to upload pics? see if this helps...
