Well it finally arrived the moto gadget M unit basic and M button which will allow me to run a single wire to all the front controls

This should be a huge improvement to the OEM wiring, next on order will be the Dyna 2000 system and that should be pretty much all the electrical side of things taken care of

Once I have all the components I will do a mock up in the electrical tray to see how everything fits before deciding on battery options

Iím hoping with all the upgrades to the charging and electrical that it makes using a lithium battery a safe option

Cool! I hadn't really planned it, but ended up ordering an m-unit too. Mine hasn't come yet, so I'll count on you to figure it out so I can follow your steps ;)

I have one more week before I get home, then Iíll be into it.

Pay just went in the bank so the Dyna system will get ordered today, Iíll have to wait until Iím home to purchase the wiring that Iíll need to run. I believe Iíll have all I need then.

Iím looking forward to setting it all up and running the wires once thatís. Done Iíll have to hit the rear wheel chain and sprockets ( which Iím unsure what actual wheel hub I have so getting the correct sprocket May be a little difficult)

Iím toyin with the idea of using the R6 brake caliper but that will require us to fabricate a new bracket. ( Iíll have to see if dads keen to give it a crack on the mill) just a pipe dream atm may just end up leaving the only brake caliper on.

I would like to find a rear disk thatís drilled out like the front two or have the one that Iíve got drilled out.

The more I think about it the more I have left to do :/ still have to work out how to mount the steering dampener as well.

Would love to have this project going by oct nov, so I can ride it during the summer

Looks like cool plans.

I used this site when searching for sprockets for my 520 conversion. It has measures for all the sprockets and lists all other models that use same sprockets. It was very helpful.

Well I ordered the DDK1-5C Dyna 2000 Ignition 2.2 ohm Coils with DW600 wire set.

It should all be at home when I get there, I believe thatís the final piece to the electrical system puzzle. There should be no issues with spark ( that is after I replace the spark plugs )

Those m-units are super nice. I use a basic in 4 button config but without m-button. So easy to wire and works really nice.

Well it looks like all the electrical components are here now

Now itís time to read all the instructions and wiring diagrams

Then hope I get it right

So Iím at a stale mate with this bolt. It the 12mm in the centre of the brass nut.

All my attempts to remove it have just further stripped the nut.

My socket set has 12 rather than 6 sides on the inside, so Iíve just gone to the hardware to pick up some impact sockets in the hope they will assist if not Iíll have to differ to plan C, get the impact driver set Iím hoping to save my pennies(but Iím not usually that lucky)

Iím having the same issue with the nut that holds the magnet in for the rotor stator

I hit them with WD40 and let it soak overnight, tried it again today then added more WD40 not really sure if itís having any effect at all.

Iím pretty sure the holes are threaded normally Iíll have a read of the workshop manual before having another crack, that will be embarrassing if Iíve been trying to turn it the wrong direction all this time
