The ignition circuit is a separate self-contained
circuit with no fuses and no connection to the other electrical
circuits on the vehicle. It has a separate charging coil
in the stator (Green & White wires).
The ignition switch contacts are OPEN when
the engine is RUNNING. Contacts are CLOSED when switch is
turned OFF, this allows the system to discharge to earth.
When fault finding, if there is no spark then check the
"green" and "purple" wires to see if
there is a "leak" to earth. Unplug stator &
CDI, check green to earth: Ignition on = no continuity.
Ignition off = continuity.
A "Resistor" type spark plug and
a resistor plug cap should always be fitted.
This circuit does not require the engine
to chassis earth. But if that earth lead is missing it is
possible that trying to use the starter motor could force
excess current through the CDI and damage it.
Always prove you have a good engine to chassis earth connection.
