I need to know the polarity for the pickup coil wires. They are Yellow Blue together, and Black Green together. Thanks

Re: Need to know pick up coil polarity

This is a dual pick-up I think ? - but black is -ve and yellow should be +ve, these two are used on single pick-ups found on later bikes. On these bikes green is normally a +ve and blue a -ve. I'm no great electrical wizard, but have carried out some electrical work on my bikes.

Re: Need to know pick up coil polarity

Those coloured wires tie in with my understanding of the GSXR colour coding a -ve and +ve on each pair of wires. If the engine is in the frame you could test by putting a multimeter from +ve to a known neg. eg engine case/frame ...as long as the battery is installed and ignition on.
I've had a look in my Haynes manual and your wires are the same as the early GSXR with the dual pick-ups, so looks good I reckon !!
