New GG wiring

Looks like the new factory bike wiring has been cleaned up.

They really have the coil exposed for potential damage. A tree limb could easily snag the wire. Not to mention it being where mud loves to congregate.
Other than that, the wiring is at a minimum for sure. I would be tempted to ziptie a thin sheet of carbon, plastic, or aluminum to the downtubes in front of the coil for a bit of protection.

The photo is a top view with the tank off, not a front view, so cant say I can see what your talking about with the coil. Things are well tucked away imo.

OH yeah.
Sorry about that, I should have looked closer.
In light of my new found view I would say its very clean indeed.
I thought it was from the front.

Funny thing is that the photo got rotated and I didn't realize it until your post. After you said what you did, I realized that it did kinda look it was in a very bad location at 1st glance...haha...

GasGas keeps refining this model of run of roughly 2009+. In `13, someone figured out you don't need a traditional curved tube and big plastic radiator cap. A simple aluminum plug is all there is on top of the radiator now. They changed the heads for a new radiator hose direction. Not sure what exactly is different in the newer plastic gas tank as I still have the aluminum one, but overall it's nice to see the Kokusan ignition module laying flat, and the coil sideways and centered in the frame.
