Tomos CDI Help

I picked up a Tomos Targa today for free, and I got everything on it running except I don't have any spark. That's because the CDI wasn't hooked up properly. I took it off from what they had it connected with. There's a plug, which obviously goes to the male plug, and then there's a wire w/ an "O" clip on it and a stripped wire, they're both of the color brown, and I have no idea which wire goes where. Please help, if you need a pic just ask, I'll be more then happy to go out and take a picture for ya.

Thank you,

brown wire is your ground, at least it is on a puch

the "O" clip should go under a bolt or screw and sit on bare metal

not paint

yep, the brown wires are ground. one needs to go to the frame, the other to the wire harness from the tail light i believe. tomos runs their ignition systems thru the tail light so make sure your bulbs are good.

Thank you very much for the posts, I'll try that and see what happens.
