I'm (obviously) having problems getting the wiring on my 2hp/85' Maxi correct. I'm (at least) the 3rd owner and (at least) ONE of the PO's attempted some "modifications". I've searched extensively and can't find a "real" diagram for this model/year, the closest I can come is for a "Mini Maxi". (It appears) that this model has a voltage limiter/regulator that (according to the mini maxi diagram) goes to the tail light junction, but the wire is yellow (as in goes to headlight junction) attempts at putting it with either the headlight connection OR tail light connection results in pathetically "dim" lights and they both (head and tail lights) shine brightly without it connected. How "important" is this device?
Coming from the stator, I have a blue/green wire as well as a solid green, both are powered. When I wire the brake lights "normally" (leaving the blue/green off the block) brake lights function normally, but are very dim. When I add the blue/green at the junction with the other blue/green wires, the brake light is always on (as would figure because of bypassing the switches) . IF I put the blue/green in junction WITH the solid green, I get nice, bright, perfectly functional brake lights. What "harm will eliminating the "regulator/voltage-limiter" do? and what "harm" will leaving the blue/green wired WITH the solid green do as to have good lighting?
