Hi Everyone:

I'm trying to get the electric start to work on my TRX300...I'm noticing there is no fuse..just the solenoid, new battery, CDI, Stator, regulator, all appear to be in working order...Is there a way to wire this without the inline fuse or fuses..missing wires..? Currently..I use the kickstart or just touch the hot cable direct to the starter from the car battery..runs well...Ignition key works..Lights only work when the engine is running....not sure about the start button on handlebars but the RUN switch works..so I assume the start button will function. I do have the service repair manual..but where there is no fuses, possibly missing wires too..not really sure....Where can I attach the small wires from the solenoid/starter relay?...I think one is ground and the other needs to be wired to the ignition circuit somehow?..Thanks

Start at one of the posts on the solenoid, the one that the positive battery cable hooks to. Run a wire from that post, through a 15 amp fuse, to the red wire on the keyswitch. There should be a black wire coming out of the keyswitch and it runs through the start button and back to the small yellow/red positive wire going into the solenoid. The small green/red wire coming out of the solenoid is the ground and runs through a diode to the neutral switch, which is on the right side of the engine near the bottom behind a metal plate.

The illustration below, shows the wiring diagram for the starting system. If you have missing wires, the wire that you need to run is highlighted in red. You may have to run the ground wire too, if it's missing.

Yes, there's definitely a fuse, unless it's missing. It sounds like you have some wires missing, but if I misunderstood, disregard what I said. My answer, above, was based on you having missing wires and I was trying to explain how to run wires from "scratch".

Yeah, I wouldn't advise it either. Get you an inline fuse holder and 15 amp fuse.
