3 way starter switch install?

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by yamaharichey, May 30, 2013.

  1. OK all you electronic wizards I need help. Just received a water proof 3 way off-on-start switch like on a car from Speedmoto. I want to put it under the seat and eliminate the starter on the handle bar and the key up on top. They did not send any wiring diagrams. So out the back is 6 wires, red, black, yellow with black, yellow with red, purple, and black with green. So where do I go from here? Please make it really basic cuz I'm old and easily confused when it comes to wiring. Thanks in advance

    That's alot of wires for on-off-start. Does it have accessory to the left?

    Hey, yamaharichey. You'll have to spend a little time with this switch and a multimeter, make a logic/truth table, kinda like this:

    ---------*red - black - yel/blk - yel/red - purple - blk/grn

    If you look at some of Jayel's schematics in the tech/electrical section, you'll find similar truth/logic boxes.


    For each position, you'll need to mark which wires share connections. For 6 wires, you'll be doing 15 continuity tests per position. Then post the results, we'll figure it out...
  4. No it does not have a left position only on then start. And for twomany I'm trying to understand what you're talking about I'll have to find a multimeter or someone who knows how to use one. I also sent a message to Speedmotoco asking if they have a diagram or could at least tell me what wires do what. thanks for the help.
