treats 12v lighting coil

i'm slightly confused by it. there's a yellow (power) and green (ground), but what is the short wire with the butt connector for? the only thing i can think of is the green is meant for an external ground, and the short wire is for an internal ground to the points. thoughts?

What does Benji have to say?

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

Yeah first I would ask benji, but it looks like that coil is split wound meaning low voltage is green and high voltage is yellow with the ring terminal with the 2 wires going into it is the actual coil ground. But hey, I'm just guessing...

yellow headlight, green tail light, butt ground? I still gotta hook mine up

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

hmmmmm....my 12v coil has only one wire

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

is that a light coil or a mag coil?

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

Well yeah. The short one goes to the points, one is for power, the other is a ground. Usually newer coils ground straight through the stator, so there's no ground wire and just two wires (points and plug). That's on my 103 anyways.

What's this one for? Is it the internal HT coil powering an external puch-style coil?

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

it looks like the mag coil on my minarelli.the butt connector is ground, the blue wire is for the brake lights and the yellow wire goes to the condensor then to the external coil.

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

Its a lighting coil. Yellow-Headlight, Green-Tailight, Ring-Ground......

Re: treats 12v lighting coil

just tested it with a multimeter and drill. yellow is high voltage, green is low voltage, ring is ground. props to everyone that guessed....which was pretty much all of you.
