the rear drives vent into the swingarm. no need for an external one.

Yeah, I know. But the previous owner did such a nice job brazing in a vent to the filler. That vent was cheaper then a replacement filler cap.

I made up a quick steel mount for the light.

I will either rework it to make it look nicer or make another out of aluminum.

Here is the license plate and tail light mount. It's hard to see, but there are two 1"x1/16" bars supporting it from the bike. I tried one bar and it flexed too much, so I triangulated it with a second bar.





Here is how I mounted the Benelli tank. The bracket is for mounting a light on a Harley fork.

Finally got the rear sets sorted.
I cut down the shifter and rear brake levers, ground them down and drilled and tapped them.

I bought the DCC linkage kit. I need to cut the polished aluminum tube to cover the all thread and paint the old brake and shifter.

Got a question.
What is this white thing?





I have this resistor below for the starter, but there are only 2 wires, a ground and a hot from the battery.

Is there a good reason you have mountrd the shift linkage underneath the footpeg? Tarozzi rearsets normally runs on the upper side giving more space to the exhaust.

I'm not sure about the break side, it may be the only option running drum brake? And it may not br an issue depending on which exhaust you go for

Black box Looks like a relay, for the mainlight maybe? Schematics show you close the relay applying a hot wire to the coil

So,
The white thing.


Z- is to the green wire next to the main power on the starter solenoid. With the blue connector.




X- goes to the main red wire on the stator.

Y- to the push button starter.

The black one doesn't seem to serve any purpose.
I don't have the headlight hooked up yet, how do I wire that in to the relay? I want it always on, no switch and right now no high beam.

I put the shifter on the bottom as it did t matter when I mocked it up. There is plenty of room. I plan to use this exhaust but with different muffler cans.

I think it is better on the bottom, it won't be in my way.






The brake side is different. There is no way to put it lower as it will foul the brake shaft. I need to change out the bolt with something that will not stick out as much.
