Just cut some slots in the bottom of the switch blocks and run the wires underneath the bars. Seriously, drilling the bars and feeding wires through them is a pain in the ass - especially when you want to change them again.....which you probably will.......

Thanks for the tip! Wasn't looking forward to drilling especially if I switch again.

Got the superbike bars mounted upsidedown. Looks pretty good. The wife isn't so keen. She says it looks like a crotch rocket now. Thanks to hillsy's tip, I notched the controls to avoid drilling. Need to notch the right side a little more though.

I need to get better pictures tomorrow.

Got it cleaned up a little with some help from the youngest. Hopefully she'll appreciate this enough to want it someday.

I also noticed that the steering stop is either broken or purposefully allows more turn to the right. The horn button will hit the tank when parked on the kick stand.

Picked up a used set of forks with the springs on the inside to clean up the front end.  My gators and dust seals on the stock forks are falling apart.  Also waiting on a replacement front brake switch and throttle cable.

Verify your voltage levels with a decent multimeter. I ran a WPS for a while, but they're cheap and not very fault tolerant. That type of voltage regulator isn't always up to the requirements that LI-ION demands. So long as you're topping out at 14.5V or less, you should be OK. Give it some revs and if the voltage holds steady, you should see a good life out of it.

Thanks for getting me to check the battery. Should have checked earlier the stator output. Seems to be flat. No voltage. Nothing on pink or yellow. Battery was at about 8v. Picking up a charger. Need to check stator. And the wires in between.

Would a 360 stator fit?
