Can someone explain Tomos bullet wiring

---- Corey B ---- /

Got it running and took off taillight/fender to see how it looked and it wouldn't start again. Then eventually it did start again but rough and when I press the rear brake it shuts off. What's up with this cluster fuck?

The tail lights brake light might be wired so that when the bulb burns out it let you know by shutting off.Hook the tail light back up and if the bulbs are good,it should not shut off when the brake is pressed,unless the idle is set to low and/or you have an air leak.

ceramic resistor in tailight cracked, it is under a plastic faceplate on the bracket. more likely hooked up wrong or bad ground. take the bulb out and flick it with your finger see if it wags.

A tomos bullet will have two wires coming from the engine case. One black, one yellow. The yellow one does all the lights, the black one powers the coil. The lighting circuit has nothing to do with the ignition circuit on this bike, so the tail light has nothing to do with the bike not running well. Post some pictures and list the things you have done to get the bike to run.

if it was an a3, point set and ht coil is a bosch, john, it has the safety override.

To kill I flip the switch to Run . Lol

3rd is that damn switch which was installed prior to me buying the Ped
