I just replaced the wire from the bullet connector to the coil and got full voltage at the coil. This is a whole lot easier than pulling the switch and replacing the entire wire.
Hi Nyles

I just replaced the pink thru the firewall to the bullet connector, the pink is the resistor, the other will carry the full 12V. Pretty simple job once you figure out how to take out the ignition switch.
