You do not need the battery,rectifier,solenoid ,gauges,lighting,handlebar switch or any of the wiring to get the bike running/riding.It can all be removed to lighten the bike up alot.The battery is for the e-starter and the lighting only...There will be a killswitch needed though to shut it off if you do remove it all...Its easy to do....The wire harness plug coming from the start button hooks to the harness plug coming from the coil or engine case cover to become one.....

The engines have a magneto and pickup coil similar to lawnmowers,weedwaters,and blowers to start up and operate.........If that engine didnt have a starter/generator combo it would have just a killswitch like a cag...........................Peace

Change the plug....NGK BM6A is good.

Boost induction doubles the intakes atomized fuel charge to pack more into the cylinder to make power..It helps with bottom end takeoff and midrange punch...It does very little for the top end gains but is good to have...............Peace

Hey, I am new here and I was wondering if I could get my bike moving with a battery and no other wiring. If so pls respond or send me a wiring diagram.
