Great! That's exactly what I was looking for! Any suggestions for dealing with extra harness that hangs in front? I have a smaller headlight bucket, so I can't cram things in there.

I would say just fold it up and zip-tie it - maybe further back under the tank so it's less obvious

Yeah, this is where you come into modifying the harness, or seeing if Sparck Moto could help you out. http://www.sparckmoto.com/ <---Matt is from here (DTT), cool guy. 

But otherwise, just wrap it nice and tie it out of the way like Ninja just said ^^^  You need to RIDE that mofo this season!! WOO!

^^^ Sonrier (Matt) owner of Spark has great products and great customer service if you need it.  I prototype tested his FB-11 fuse block and used it to re-wire my whole bike one circuit at a time and eliminate a lot of the harness doing it on my GL1000. 2 seasons of riding later and it's still working great. He also now owns vintage connections so you can get all the bits you need to build a harness or you can have him build you one to your specs.

That fuse block looks great, I think I am going to get one for my GT500.

Ive wanted one of his harnesses but they're a little out of my budget. Once it's riding and everything else is out of the way to make it safe, I'll hop on it for sure. Function over form right now. Like you guys said, I want it on the road this season!

I will be redoing the electronics bay, especially now that I have access to a full machine shop, and his fusebox is number one on that list. Second is the regulator/rectifier 😁

He gives you very easy to understand instructions in hiw to wire things through it. My GL harness was wrecked completelty from a deer deciding to run into me sidelong so I had no choice but to almost start from scratch, that FB 11 made it soooo much easier for me
