Rear section wiring of lights and indicators wrapped up and connected.



Front control and indicator wires fed through bars. Odometer/tacho and warning and indicator light wires out through bottom of upper triple in 2 bundles.





Making a bracket for my 2 gauges (Water temp and Oil press) out of some 3mm aluminium (or is it aluminum?) sheet.



Big holes are 50mm and fit on forks between clip on brackets and upper triple. Houses 2 gauges, a fan temp over-ride switch for electric fan, and choke.



Below it will be a n aluminium box welded on to bracket, with space and entry and exit ports for connectors and wires bundles. Choke cable goes through it.



Assembled, but yet to be welded, sanded and painted.

Spent all morning practicing TIG welding spare stainless scrap pipe. Decided things were not going to get much better, so took a punt and made some tack welds on headers /connecting fitting, and mufflers after setting everything on bike where I wanted them.

Not very pretty but TIG welding is hard enough without having to get down on the floor to weld on site.



Purging pipe assembly with welding gas.





Managed to weld 4 joints without burning a hole in any of them.....Success!



Everything fitted...Bonus!

Wow, nice work, and the mufflers line up with the frame loop, good job.
