New here, new to mopeds... Just bought my first one :) It's a Solo Odyssey 40/1. Low miles, garage kept (mostly) and CHEAP because it wasn't running when I bought it. After a little TLC on the carb, air filter, fuel lines it starts and runs great! So all of the major stuff looks great, but there are alot of little things I need to get fixed.
So one issue I found was the Brake Light stays on all the time. The accessory switch works, headlight and horn work fine. I tracked the issue down to a ground wire(?) coming off of the brake lever. If I ground that wire to the handlebars the brake light goes off and works normally when the brakes are used or the lights are turned on. So I "think" that that little ground wire was originally connected under the kill switch. I can't see anywhere else it would be able to go. Which leads me to my second question: There is only 1 wire going to the kill switch. So I think this thing is wired to use the frame as the ground. The only wiring diagrams I can find are for the Columbia with the Solo engine and the 5 wire Bosch stator, and they both show a black ground wire that the kill switch connects to, and a white wire that the brake switches would connect to.
Can someone with a stock Solo Odyssey 40/1 or 40/2 take a pic of their Brake/kill switch wiring? Or, if you've had or seen one let me know if my wiring is OK, and I just need to ground that black wire to the handlebars. I have attached a pic of my current setup. Ignore the sad looking kill switch, its seen better days.
