Looks like I might have better luck switching horses and seeing if I can get the '92 4wd one running first.
I started trying to figure out the ignition system on the 250 and realized I am missing a few more pieces than I thought. Possibly I have enough to make it run though. The engine side cover has not been removed so the magneto and internal parts should be intact. At least the wires are still extending out through the engine case. I have the CDI unit and rectifier, still bolted to the battery box, just not attached to the bike. I do not have the ignition key switch or the handle-bar kill switch but I can run without these, right?
All the parts that I do have are condition unknown as of now.
I had found, on here, a thread with simplified wiring explanations that I thought would be exactly what I need to check mine out but unfortunately the wiring colors don't match what I have so I am not any better off. The diagrams must be for a different year model?
I need to decide how much time and effort I intend to devote to this project and draw the line.
