It goes to the igniter unit, near the battery.

another question i just thought of... when i run the connector/wires from the inside of the engine to the outside, will i have to take the stator cover off to? that pretty much requires an engine removal doesn't it?

Someone here, (maybe slimvulcanrider?), had a wire come off the pickup/pulse coil too.
He was able to solder it back on and save the cost of a new one.

It is an option if you can solder, or have a buddy who can.

didn't even think of that one! already got my new ones ordered though, so ill just do the mod on those. then i'll just have to figure out how to run the wires to the ignitor. the manual says to remove the engine and the stator cover, but i REALLY don't want to do that if i can avoid it. any suggestions?

It could be fairly difficult to fish them through.

I would try to tape the new one to the old and pull it through first. As long as there isn't a tight bend or its cinched down somewhere that might work.

You can't simply feed them thru. They fit behind a bend on the inside of the cover. You will have to take the cover off to route them properly. The connection end has a connection close to the battery box. It simply disconnects & plugs in the new one. You also don't have to fully remove the engine. Look up the "tilt" process. You almost remove the engine but really just tilt it enough to get the the bolts that are obstructed by the frame.
