Thank you, One question though. This bike is a pull start not electric start and I don't think it's a super bike. Is it the same wire diagram?

It's a cateye and another name is superbike. It does have a electric start to. Now I don't know if it has a battery (can't tell if there is one in the battery box) to work the electric starter or if it's been removed but I do see the wire going to it so I would think it's there. It's right behind the pull starter. So the wiring diagram should help you out all though the color of your wires may be different.

If you do have a battery give the electric starter a try. The button is on the right handle bar. But you need to hold in the left brake lever to hit the safety switch that in it.

Thank you for the info. The battery is in there but it's dead and it looks like the starter is there. I will give it a charge and see if it holds then try it out. I'll let you know how I made out. Thanks again!:thumbsup:

:thumbsup:Update:thumbsup: All the wires are sorted out. I got Everything working....Headlights, Directionals, Horn, Brake lites. Bike runs great. The starter switch is good but the starter is gone so I do have to replace it. Then on to the clean up, body work and paint. I will post some pictures soon.:)

You don't need a battery or wiring to make the engine run, but you need to run the small coil wire to a toggle or kill switch and the other side to ground, so you can ground the coil when you want to turn it off.
I always, check or replace the plug and check for a spark and check the gap around .028" will work for starters. If you have a good spark, you can move on. Make sure all your bolts are tight. If the pull starter works, open the piston with the hole, in the carb, put a teaspoon of gas there or in the plug hole and pull start it to see if it pops or fires and or runs.
You have a 49cc Zenoah piston port copy engine, with a copy carb of a 15mm Walbro WYK pumper carb. Need to push the bulb a few time to get gas from the gas tank, needs a choke when cold. I have all kinds of new parts for that engine, cause I have a seat go-ped style scooter. I put a billet alum manifold with boost bottle fitting amd a WT-813 Walbro w/ acell pump for great starts, designed for your engine, and then a V-stack w/ choke cause the 813 has no choke plate, and a Jet Pro racing exhaust, it wants to pop wheelies & it only weights 48lbs. A Cateye is probably closer to 100lbs. You need an X1-X7 HP Fatty exhaust.
