The steering on that will be very "heavy" with that much lift at the rear.
Unless you are planning to drop the front of the track too and extend the steering posts.................

By maintaining it's original steering geometry even when lifted, it will not suffer in handling.

The yellow wires are for the lights, not sure what the white wire may be to as they typically used just yellow, red, black, and brown [ground].

Then you do need a new piston at the very least and should inspect the cylinder for any scoring or even chunks missing there too.
It can be hard to see spark in the daylight so even good spark can look weak.
I would start with opening up the top end and looking at replacing the damaged parts first.
