Hey guys. Im working on my new 87 trx250 and I need some help. first off I know this is probably a stupid question but do I need a battery to kick start it and can I use a car battery? Im assuming its a 12v system? Im just trying to see if the engine will even run before I buy a battery. my next problom is at some point some one must of tried to steel this thing because the key ignition is missing.there are four wires that went to it. a heavy red, heavy black, a small green and a small black w/white stripe. Im thinking ill need to do somthing with these wires to complete the circuit before ill be able to kick start it? so any way if any one can give me some advice to help me get this thing to spark that would be great.
