I have a 1982 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim that I restored and plan on doing a cafe build with it. I want to go minimalistic with the electrics to clear up as much space around the engine. I want a sleek look in which you cannot see any sort of storage box for the electronics and definitely no loose wires. I like the look of an engine and carburetors and nothing else under the seat. The electrics the bike currently has are blinkers, brake light, headlight, horn, oil level sensor, high beam indicator, turn signal indicator, and a neutral indicator. I want to maintain all this if possible but with all new brake lights, blinkers, headlight, speedo (I want a speedo that has a light in it for night riding), and indicator cluster. The bike's old electrical system utilizes the headlight housing to store all of the wire plugs, could I possibly splice new wires directly to the harness to bypass the old plugs? (this would save a lot of space) Would I have to buy a new wiring harness to support new lights or could I just strip and connect each of my old wires to its new corresponding item, e.g. put on a new headlight and splice the new wire to the wiring harness? (Also I don't know if I buy a new headlight if it would have the same plug as my old one) I know that the indicator lights are a simple bulb so replacing the indicator cluster will be a breeze, but I don't know about compatibility with headlights, brake lights, and blinkers. Also, the bike has a regulator and a rectifier that are pretty bulky, but they work fine. Should I just try to find a place to tuck them away or upgrade to a modern single module and how will that work with compatibility? The wires leading to the regulator have plugs, how would I know if a new module would have the same plugs? The system also has many relays, is there any way to upgrade to newer, more reliable, and more compact relays? Thank you for any help, I know this is a lot and probably confusing.
