kevin Smellaflange /

grey is exciter 6v

brow tail light maybe 12v

the bike might be 6v & 12v @ the same time on the same bike...it depends on the model

Re: 1979 Motobecane 50V Magneto Wiring Issue

My question is where does each wire need to be connected.

Thank You

Maybe this will help your confusion :

I would think other than the wires from the light coils , which should be self explanatory , the wire from the ignition coil , along with the blue from the condenser and a grey wire from the HT coil would be connected to the points .

Yes the others are pretty self-explanatory. It was in pieces when I bought it so I didn’t get to see how it came apart and no pics I have seen show a clear enough connection to the points. Damn that’s a tight fit getting all three wires hooked to the points!
