How do you check motorcycle wires?
First measure the resistance between the primary wire that comes from the CDI box and the ground or ground wire. The resistance should measure around . 5 to 1.5 Ohms. If that checks out, you can then measure the resistance between the secondary wire (plug wire), w hich should measure in the thousands.
Which wire should connect first?
In any electrical connection sequence you always connect the Ground first, the neutral then the hot. BUT and here is the main part of this – before making any connections you must make sure that the circuit you are working with is not energized.
Do I Connect the black or white wire first?
When electrical wires are joined together the black wires must be hooked together, the white wires must be hooked to the white wires, and the ground wires must be hooked together. Otherwise, the circuit will not work, and will result in an electrical “short.”
Can I connect red and black wires together?
You can link two red wires together, or you can link a red wire to a black wire. Since red wires conduct current, they are considered hot. Red and black wires are both hot or line wires and should not be connected together.
