Yay! Wiring up the hobbits lights, kill switch, horn and on/off switch with an aftermarket CDI is real fun!

Re: 1979 honda hobbit pa50 custom

Okay, having a hard time with the wiring. This is the CDI I have;

https://www.treatland.tv/HPI-CDI-mini-rotor-ignition-system-for-honda-hobbi-p/hobbit-mini-rotor-210k094.htm

Can't find a diagram for the different colored wires from the CDI to adapt to the Hobbit. (I checked this website and could not find it for the HPI CDI.) Need to know what each wire from the CDI is, so I can adapt them to the old Hobbit wiring.

Thanks again! (edited)

Somehow I got everything to work. Is there any need to run the Rectifier to control surge? Sorry for the dumb questions, still learning. I'm currently running a Trail Tech voltage regulator from Treats for the headlight.

Added rear pegs and a round metal plate under the tank to put the number "79" on! This thing screams! Need to figure out a way to start it without a cordless drill?

I don't think a pull start will fit with my CDI. And yes, I'll clean up the wires

Re: 1979 honda hobbit pa50 custom

treats has a pull start for the mini rotor, i just linked the wrong one.
