Finally tackling the CL70 wiring.

I mentioned in the intial post about the CL70 that it looked like someone had been messing around with the wiring.  I was able to get the wires in the battery box fairly straightened out and installed a new battery.

I got it running but it would intermittently cut out. I found that if you grab the main wiring harness where it comes out of the frame before going into the headlight bucket and shake it like a crying baby, it will fix it temporarily.  That generally means one of two things: loose connection or a bare spot in a wire.

Time to break out the service manual wiring diagram and open up the headlight bucket.
Oh wow, this should be fun.
