If the idea is to minimize wiring, then you need to do up a custom wiring diagram and start crimping and soldering.I did mine for my XS650. It's not hard. You need the ignition to feed power to the coils, but beyond that just remove the starter motor (or leave it on - you'd need a block plug to keep the oil in the engine most likely), cables, solenoid etc.The starter motor circuit however is about the simplest circuit on the bike. Again, to 'simplify' you need to start from scratch and get rid of anything silly like safety switches on the clutch lever, side stand, auto-signal light turn-offer things, buzzers for the signals (perhaps the signals themselves as well).My XS has a single toggle switch (no key) to turn it on/off and runs on a single 10A fuse.
...But I can get rid of the solenoid? All I need is to get power to the ignition for the coils. Does it take a different charging system to covert to kick only?Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
For the record I regret removing it from my cafe. Mostly since I built the 750cc rephased motor. It's a beast to kick over unless it's running perfectly. So if you want to get rid of if, make sure the engine runs perfectly first. You'll be kicking yourself trying to get the engine running without the electric leg if it's not tuned and running really well. Mine starts first or second kick which is fine for me. But when it gets in a mood, or floods or whatever, it is a pain in the ass. Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON
