Got to keep dreaming. How is this for a Yamaha triple. Best looking XSR900 I have seen.

Does it carry a warranty to match Antigravity's?

Looks to have the warranty covered.
I am going to give it a go!

The first few coats of metallic silver are on and looking good.
2 more to go, I think. Then one clear before I try the red vinyl for the details.
Not sure why the photo has a purple hue, the colour match is very good to the original Yamaha Crystal Silver.

I think I have said it before, but I really hate sorting out electricals.  :'(
Especially when the PO just cut the loom in 2 spots where it heads up to the gauges and pilot box. ??? :-X :'(
I have manages to get the new Koso gauge fired up, but the only idiot light I have managed to nut out is the high beam.
The neutral and oil pressure rely on the earth circuit for the light being broken to turn the light off. But the Koso gauge needs power to be sent to the light and has a common earth!!! Any idea on how to get it to work? :-[

You fit a relay in between, which you set up to trigger on ground and then simply switch plus over it. (Slight overkill, but electrically the easiest way.)

As you have seen my shed is at bursting point. Luckily my wife's cousin lives within walking distance and has agreed to me building a shed that I can store some toys = boat, caravan & motorbikes. The major issue is that I needed to fix up the storm water drainage. That meant digging a trench 30m long and 400mm deep to run a 90mm PVC pipe. That was my Saturday.
The fuel tank is coming along and the silver is really sparkling. The trick appears to be to do more light coats rather than a heavy coat. The original intent was to put the red detail on using vinyl wrap. Much easier on Youtube than for me being a novice trying to get it on without wrinkles. Think I am going to make up some masks and paint the red detail.
Spent Sunday afternoon sorting electrics. Turns out the neutral and oil pressure need a +/- signal not 12VDC. So I assume this means that the Yamaha earth switching will provide the required signal?? It has been working but not reliably, any one got any ideas??
The indicators are not working correctly either. I can get one indicator lighting up but not flashing and none of the others is working. I have the indicator cancelling unit attached but there is no input from the the speedo, could this be the problem? Can I just disconnect the cancelling unit?

DGR ride today, took the XS7502D, it went well until the last little bit. Started to jump out and back into 1st gear  :-\ I have never heard of an issue with 1st gear?? 2nd gear, there is plenty of information.  Any ideas???
Slab for the shed should get poured this week.
Started on the brakes, they have cleaned up well after half an hour in the ultra sonic cleaner.
Electricals are still giving me the shits! The tail light is constantly on once the ignition is turned on?? Indicators come on, but do not flash. When I swap the flasher relay into the 750 it works fine!! The indicators are aftermarket, so I am not sure if the resistance is wrong???
If anyone has any ideas, I would be grateful.
