Any labels on the pins? It looks like it could be the voltage regulator.
Same symbols as this




Here is my reg/rec



The wiring is/was a mess. I am almost done. I got the rear light and rear brake switch done and the rest I understand. It is just that on resistor, it must be fore the headlight. All I have left to hook up is the headlight and the front hyd brake switch. I broke the wires on the other one and bought one with a brembo thread.



I have brembo master and calipers but the junction block has Nissan threads.

One last question (for now).
I have a mini switch that I want to use for the start button.
With that white resistor or relay, can I use the small switch with thin wire safely? Or will I melt it?

The switch now uses a pretty heavy wire compared to the new switch.



See above. The thin wire is like 18 ga. The heavy black wire is to the existing switch. It goes to the Y on the white relay

Btw

Here is my wiring sketch

You should be OK, but I'd test it just to be sure. You should be able to activate the relay by connecting directly to a battery. Use a multimeter to measure the current. Anything under 3A should be fine for 18 gauge.

Looks nice with the rear sets, I see there is plenty of room with the exhaust you have chosen. I have Lafranconi Competizione with a LM1000 middle section and there's no way I could run the linkage like you do. Really inspiring to follow this Guzzi!

Rusnak...where did you find that tail light?
Amazon. $18 with free prime shipping. I will try to find a link to it.

It was cheap enough to take a risk that it wouldn't fit.

I mounted the light over the weekend

Used some glue and rivets

I put an crap load of tape on the drill bit to limit the depth as I am someone who would drill right thur the seat and poke out the top side.











I ground the bracket to give it some teeth for the glue to stick to.

I regret not thinking ahead and painting the raw steel bracket before I attached it.

Have not made huge progress that can be seen in pictures, I spent way too long figuring out the wiring. It was a huge mess, I am not finished, but close.

I also had some work to do on our normal street bikes. My wife and I went on a 3 day trip thru the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia over the weekend for our anniversary.

I did buy some mufflers and exhaust wrap that I have yet to get installed.

How do you use this type of hanger? I had these hangers on a old exhaust and I swear there was either a captive nut or a bolt behind it. I have no clue how I will tighten a nut there as I don't think a wrench will fit and the nut will have room to spin

Also, I am waiting on some wiring loom cover that I ordered. But anyone have an idea on what I can use to cover the bolts on the starter?
That is a always hot lead from the starter

A carriage bolt from the muffler side would probably work to attach to a bracket for hanging, or a square nut on the back side of the right size should prevent it from spinning as well. McMaster also sells these nifty channel nuts...

I have a issue with the tank.
The petcocks too close to the heads to turn them off. I can cut them, but it will make it hard to turn and I am worried about heat.

I wouldn't be worried about the heat, my petcock is just as close as your if not closer on a CX
But I would turn it a little to have better access to the petcock
