Iam rebuilding a 1983 BR 200E.I've rplaced the cables,brake shoes,rear axle beraings and seals,all three tires with ITP Mud Lites. I can't get the starter to work? I checked the starter and it's good,I checked the starter button and it's good. I replaced the starter solenoid IMG_8090.jpg  ,but I still have nothing? I see in my Clymer Wiring Diagram that there is a neutral switch ( I guess so you can only start the motor in neutral?). Is there a way to bypass this switch,as I think it's the problem with no power going to the solenoid ?

Problem solved! The power wire (Red) had a few opens in it. I just replaced it with new wire and it working perfectly now.

Thanks,I used to ride these when I was younger. I'm finding most of my parts on E Bay. The wiring on these is so old and brittle,it would almost pay to just build another wiring harness.I think I'm gonna run Honda GN4 oil in it since it has a wet clutch?

GN4 is good oil and JASO MA certified for wet clutch applications

Took it out for it's first run since I rebuilt it. Ran fine no problems at all. I really like the ride I get with the ITP Mud Lites. They are 6 ply and I'm running them with 2.5 psi. IMG_2790.jpg
