You should have wiring already in handlebar switch? Does it have ON-OFF position on right hand switch/throttle housing or is it USA type? (blanked off)
I know I'm going to have to dig out manual to check but tail light should be on handlebar switch input not output side

I dropped the seat pan off at the upholsterer, he put some foam on it and I chose a material to cover it in. He also quoted me $440 for the work, I was hoping for less but his work is reputable. Also haven't finished the wiring yet as I have been working on some other projects. I have a few fiddly jobs to do on the bike while I wait because I can't pick the seat up until next Tuesday. Hopefully I can do my first test ride then.

Got the seat but it didn't fit on the bike because I didn't allow for the thickness of the material when I made the pan, I bent the tab that sticks out the front down lower and now it fits.

The tail light comes on with the ignition and the hi low beam is back to normal. No stealth mode :( Only problem is with the rear brake return spring, its a bit saggy so it doesn't pull the lever back up so the brake light stays on even after my foot is off the brake. I will add that spring  to the list for the next lot of parts to order.
I am missing a bolt to hold the caliper on but the dad of all trades has already put one in the post.

Getting close to the end!

Nice work, hop you put the fender back or a brace on the front, makes a big difference in handling.

Those 'pods' are going to try and turn 'inside out' as they severely restrict airflow over 6k even on a CB/CM400
