Here is some info on the pink wire, do some Google searches for more:Are you for real about cutting a pink wire???
Or rather than the first 2 gears being retarded,
would one be RETARDED by cutting the wire?..LOL :zzombie
The previous owner of my bike already disconnected the pink wire so I didn't have to fool with it.The pink wire connected to the ignition box of some of the later 900 bikes retards the ignition timing in the lower 3 gears to make the bike more user friendly, limiting the ability to spin up the rear wheel out of corners, and reduced wheelie tendencies. Disconnecting this pink wire disables this feature. The factory service manual shows this wire has no connection. On the left side of the motorcycle, behind the front sprocket cover, there is a neutral switch. If there is a single Blue wire coming out of it, then your bike does NOT have an ignition retard in the lower gears. If there is a 2nd Pink wire coming out of this sensor, then you do have an ignition retard in the lower gears.
