wiring heaven, where zip ties flourish.   I am working on repairing some loose connections, removing unneeded wires, and rerouting the harness for a cleaner look. In the photos the left side is cleaned up, on to the right side next. Did I mention I really dig zip ties. 

Also rebuilt the left switch, cleaned all the contacts and gave it a brushed finish. Just about 1/4 inch between the tank. Works like new now and should look pretty damn good once the bars are painted black.

Thanks for the kind words all, and the bookmarks!  I hope she turns out awesome.  I am like totally OCD, and pretty much going for it on the bike. Atleast as much as my budget will allow for now.  There will be much more that I want to do, and it wont be all polished and chrome shiny, just all business.  Lean and mean makes the girls cream. haha. 


Not too much to report today, still working on the wiring harness, should be done tonight.  Then its time to terminate all those wires  :o  I've seriously gone through about 1000 zip ties

quick update. I've been able to complete quite a bit of the wiring.  The main harness is basically done, but still need to terminate many of the wires.  All the components are mounted, sans battery which I am still waiting on.  The battery will be mounted all the way at the rear and will just clear, without having to remove the center /rear frame brace. 

All the wiring will be sleeved after everything is checked to make sure I didn't get my wires crossed (fingers crossed!).  I may rotate the ignition box 180 degrees so that the connectors enter from from the back instead of the front. 

I am going to be running dual taillights mounted off of the lower shock mounts on each side.  I would also like to fab these up to work as turn signals as well, to avoid having to bolt on another component.  Going for the clean-clean look. 

Second photo shows the ignition switch mount under the tank, fab'ed from angle iron.  This will be cleaned up and painted black.  Third photo shows the wiring under the lower triple tree as it go back under the frame/tank..  Should be a nice clean look once all is finished up.

I love seeing another triple. I'm dragging ass on the last few bits of mine, but it's still coming along.

Thanks for the comments.  I've been draggin ass too, mostly still just working on the wiring.  WAaayyyyy more work than I anticipated, but its coming along well.  After the wiring is done, just a few more bits.  The biggest project I need to do is figure out what to do for the seat.  First  I want to be sure all the wiring is done and working properly - priorities!!
