I recently got a good deal on a beautiful 98 CN 250. The bike had sat for a while after the death of its owner/ primary rider. A couple years after her death, her husband sent the bike to a local to him Honda service shop to get it road worthy again. It came back to him running, but over heating, and with a terrible front end wobble that had never existed. The guy went back forth with the shop for a few no this, and finally grew tired of it. That's where I come in.
He shipped it from Maine to Ky and I now have it. Well, I immediately found the cause of the wobble, the front axle nut was ¾ of the way off the axle. That was an enormous red flag, so I started digging through to see what else was amiss.
I can say that the shop needs to be burned to the ground.... The one thing I need more than anything is a wiring diagram. I tried the library here, but sadly those files have expired or something g as they do not download.
I am trying to GI d a hot wire that is only hot when the engine is running. If anyone can help either with the manual/diagram, or by telling me where to find such a wire, I will be forever grateful.

I was on a similar situation with my scooter when I was trying to figure out a short somewhere, at the end after digging around with the multimeter, I ended up doing my own harness from scratch with quality 12g cable, no more electrical gremlins since.
I would, but damnit....its almost ride season!!! If I can get this one thing sorted, I can rebuild the loom this coming winter. I've got an 86 Helix as well as a parts bike (now..was stolen and dumped after they trashed it...RIP Felix) but supposedly there's subtle differences there, idk. Without a manual it's hard to tell.
