Have not made huge progress that can be seen in pictures, I spent way too long figuring out the wiring. It was a huge mess, I am not finished, but close.

I also had some work to do on our normal street bikes. My wife and I went on a 3 day trip thru the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia over the weekend for our anniversary.

I did buy some mufflers and exhaust wrap that I have yet to get installed.

How do you use this type of hanger? I had these hangers on a old exhaust and I swear there was either a captive nut or a bolt behind it. I have no clue how I will tighten a nut  there as I don't think a wrench will fit and the nut will have room to spin

Also,  I am waiting on some wiring loom cover that I ordered. But anyone have an idea on what I can use to cover the bolts on the starter?
That is a always hot lead from the starter

A carriage bolt from the muffler side would probably work to attach to a bracket for hanging, or a square nut on the back side of the right size should prevent it from spinning as well. McMaster also sells these nifty channel nuts...

Got the exhaust wrap on one side.. Not as hard as I was expecting.

I made some quick brackets to attach the pipes to the rearsets.

I have a issue with the tank.
The petcocks too close to the heads to turn them off. I can cut them, but it will make it hard to turn and I am worried about heat.

I wouldn't be worried about the heat, my petcock is just as close as your if not closer on a CX
But I would turn it a little to have better access to the petcock
