ZN 1100 Regulator wiring help please
So I recently bought a 1984 ZN 1100 with melted wires between alternator and regulator/rectifier (RR)
When I got the bike home I noticed that the 6 pin plug that goes into the RR had been cut off and the wires were taped over.
The alternator tests fine and the RR tests bad and I have ordered a new plug and a new RR.
My problem is that because the plug was cut off, I am having trouble figuring out how to connect the 6 wires to the new plug. The ZN RR does not come with a pigtail because the male flat pins are made right into the RR.
The wiring diagram is not helpful as it is a schematic and there is no way to relate it to the RR or the plug as the RR has no pin numbers on it. If anyone has a photo of their plug or their RR that might show the how it is wired, I would be very grateful for that. I am new here but I will try to post a picture of my RR with labels that show how I think the wires connect. The left side is Brown, the right side is Black/Yellow and the middle is White/Red. But there is a 50/50 chance that I have the Brown reversed with the Black/Yellow and I don't want to blow up a brand new RR.
Sorry. I tried to upload a photo but it seems it won't work for me.
