Here is what I'm trying to run

1. Heated Grips
2. 12v oulet for gps/phone etc
3. Aux lights in the future
The always on circuit gets a cable directly from the battery. The switched power gets a leg from after whatever switch you happen to be running for on/off. the ground gets run to wherever you want on the frame or even back to the battery.

Easy Peasy.



and wiring cleanup:

Well, when you put it that way. Thanks man. I think I'll be going with that.
Also, that is a ridiculous set up you've got there. I dont think I've ever seen pics of your ride. Got pics of it fully assembled? and what kinda sorcery do you have going on there?

Sure did man. I didn't or should I say wouldn't drill into my caliper. They have a cable that you can stick to the caliper, mine stayed just fine, but I doubled down with a zip tie. FWIW, I JB welded the magnet into my rotor where it is to this day also.

Sweet! Think you could post some pics brother? Also, do you remember or have it noted down what your calculated wheel size came up to? (i.e if you have the stock L front wheel)

I am going to go that route. Thank you!

Your not drilling in to the caliper but the caliper to fork bracket. It's only a 1/8" hole. No big deal.

Herro everybody!!

I just got an FCR-MX-39 skeleton, and it's missing a few parts. Mostly notably, the entire slide/needle assembly and the hot start. The rest I can pickup here or there, but the cost of those parts new are very scarey. Anyone have parts bin I can pull from?

If you have a small file you can file the bowl tab with the carb and bowl in place.
The more annoying issue is the stumbling or hesitation from just open to 1/4 throttle. That's the pilot. Too lean?
If it is totally necessary, I'll file the tab. I just don't want to do any mods outside of replacing the pilot and main jets, removing the snorkel and adding an FMF Q
I should have the smog removal kit tomorrow or tuesday so I'll pull the carb then.
