This weekend i put my heart back in the body. the engine is in :) I upgraded the ignition system, i put on my seat tray and my fender eliminator :) you might be able to see the seat tray has a slight bow in it - just to accommodate the random possibility of the wheel bottoming out.









This week I will be rebuilding my wiring harness (keeping the stock one in tact for future use if required) mounting my battery under the seat and all the other electronic components...

oh and sourcing some more decals for the front fender and bikini fairing (electric orange decals to tie my front fender and bikini fairing in to my bike)

Hey guys,

Been working on the electrics on the bike - taking my time trying to get it just right...its hard keeping it neat under the hump, but it's getting there.

So all wires are run from back to front, hidden, and battery is connected, alarm has been wired in etc


At the back I have a key that will bypass the alarm unit if it were to fail...I know, I know it's easy to bypass but if you didnt know it was there one wouldnt know about it


Cables run under the seat/frame



The headlight bucket - SLOWLY getting there, slowly! Such a messy place to be :)


Oh and here is my headlight brackets to hold the bucket, nice stainless


I built a little bracket to host my Acewell and two switches, lights on/brights and a kill switch


I got my boxer metal rear sets on as well!
Clutch

Brakes


It is a bit messy but it all works! When the wire work is done under the seat it will look neater.

Next step (hopefully tonight) I'll run my wires through my left handlebar to get the horn and indicator buttons working and then run the two switches under my acewell to the headlight bucket as well...yew. Hopefully more pics to come tomorrow...and better ones.

Whenever I am doing electrical work,I use my batt charger set at 2amps,high enough to check the work,low enough not to fry things.

Looking forward to more updates.

Hey guys,

seat is done and mounted!

Never did anything along these lines before - being upholstery, but I had a crack and I reckon it looks sweet..and its comfortable with 60mm of super high density foam :-)













Next steps (and nearly the last)

I have to mount my rear indicators, wire the indicators, license plate lights and brake lights. Hook my clutch cable up to the bars, wet sand/polish my tank, rebuild fuel taps, paint and mount my bikini fairing and front fender....life's good.
