    Ignition switch

    looking at the ZR-7 ignition switch wiring diagram, the grey ignition wire from the cdi to the switch in the on position is connected to what? The diagram just has a - mark. Example: Brown (ignition) is connected to white (battery) in on position. White/black (battery) is connected to white/green (tail 3) in on position. Gray (ignition) is connected to - (ignition) What is - ? Ground? Any help appreciated.

    trying to hotwire one or need a switch?....ive got a spare switch and tank cap with key

    if your considering tapping off it for power do yourself a favor and tap off the battery with a relay useing a relay and a keyed on wire out of the fuse box under the seat

    Thanks for the response... I got the engine for a mini sand rail is the reason for no switch. Bought a wiring harness & CDI off of ebay. Engine turns over no problem (have handle bar switches connected temporarily) jumped across wiring for kick stand & clutch lever switch. The grey ignition wire according to the switch diagram is what I don't follow,...don"t know if it is suppose to connected to a hot wire, ground or what. Don't know what the - represents in the diagram. Bought the engine from a guy that wrecked the bike & he cut up the harness before I could get to it. The CDI I bought may be bad or the crank sensor, but need to be sure I have the wiring straight. Not getting a spark with the grey ignition wire momentarily connected to 12v & ground also. If you have a spare switch I would buy it even if only to ohm the terminals. That would clear up any question on wire connections.

    Don't worry about it.
    The grey wire is the live feed to the indicators.
    You can use it as a switched live if you need one.
