uncluttering some of the wiring.

Well now that it's reasonably functional, I'll make a little effort to clean up the wiring enough to make a longer range foray into the hills "testing" the new sled. Up front, I have some real challenges getting the tacho wiring nested well with the rest of the gear, while also trimming a lot of the existing wires down since they are now wadded up a little too much. Before attacking that, I'll try to sort out the simpler area which is the aft lighting connections, and taking out some lengths of wire in the main lines off the battery, etc.

I'll use some pin connectors for the lighting so that the rear fender can be yanked off easily, and will also be using some cute connectors made by a company called "PosiLock" for splicing onto the (-) line originating from the battery:

Here's the snarl right now:


  1. this is just the kind of wire 'cluster' I like and soon it will be all pretty!

  2. That's a lot of wires!!! I simplified my harness completely, no more battery, no turn signals, they are not mandatory in Florida, no ignition switch, I think I am down to 5 wires total. I love it!
    I posted new photos on my Blog...check them out and let me know what you think...

  3. I'll let you know what I think: you should have gone with an XR600 wiring harness and stator if you're going to strip it down that much. And second, I din't know you were in Florida. I had assumed that you were in the Bay Area with Angostura.

  4. I will probably need to go with a Ricky Stator sooner than later...
