Ok so we finally finally, got er running today actually got to ride it around the block couple of time!! We were supper pumped, well coming in to the drive way it got laid on its left side and after that it didn't do anything , no lights no nothing, battery is brand new , dog one fuse is fine, and new we have nothing!! Now it's in parts trying to figure out what it is that's not making it start, PS he thought it was the ignition switch and we'll ours is I guess original so the wires were sodded on and not a fuse , so those got snipped in hopes to hot wire it but theirs 5 wires馃う and all videos are for 4 wires so now that's a problem took a tester to all fuses and wires there all getting power ,but the bike ain't doing nothing power wise 脽till
And we have 2 browns, one white and brown wire, one red wire, one green an black wire and one black wire help

Kind of hard to decipher that run on sentence but I gather you cut the wires off the ignition switch? If you tie the red and black together it should power up. If not check the plug on top of the starter solenoid, the thing where the dogbone fuse is.

Sorry about the prolonged sentence, just aggravated , black and red wire and together now , hooked up to battery, nothing, it's a brand new starter solenoid so everything is ok on that 馃槱

First check there is power on the black wire and red wire at the jumper. If no power check the connector and 30 amp fuse at the starter solenoid. You should see the 30 amp fuse plugged in to the solenoid.

If you have power at the red and black jumper check the black wires at the kill switch and start switch. Report back to the guys.

Black wire to kill switch has power to it , now were thinking about completely gutting it , down to minimal wires , no radio or anything. Just the necessities! So this shall be fun!

I wouldn't destroy the wiring when you probably only have one small issue. Did you check for power in the fuse box and are all the fuses good? Also do you have power at the start button?

The Honda standard wire colors are:
Red +12v all the time
Black +12V with the ignition switch in the run position
Black W/ White Stripe +12V with the ignition switch on and the Kill Switch in the Run Position.
Green Ground

Check Procedure:
1. Make sure the battery is putting out 12.7V
2. Find a green wire and make sure there is continuity to the ground lug on the battery.
3. Check Red for power
4. With the ignition switch in the on position check the Black for power
5. With the run switch in the run postilion and the ignition on check the Black with White Stripe for power.
