Diode Starter Solenoid

M900 1997

Out of curiosity, what exactly does the diode do? I read it only allows the current go one way to prevent and electrical damage; its a carb bike , no ecu ; would it short the starter switch of you left it out?

I put in a superseal connector to replace the plug

I did cut back a good chunk of OE Loom wire but it was still a mixture of black copper strands in places

particularly the link in post #30 to Lucaz's explanation elsewhere.

Just my opinion but i think Its a bit of a Ducati bodge up job. If they'd specced the wiring correctly (battery starter wires) then it shouldn't be needed. At least ive never seen one on any other bike.
