This is why. Know I haven't posted in a while. Apologies. Work has been insane lately and tonight is the first night I sat down to work on my cafe project in a while. Tonight was "Strip the shitty wiring out so I can do my own" night.

After seeing this..... all I could think was "This is gonna be a long night."



Got it ALL THE WAY down to the running BARE essentials and will redo the wiring from there.



I don't know who or how many people have touched this bike but I found 2 killswitches, 5 wires soldered into each other, other wires that were stretched (as in 2 foot of wire ran just to connect a wire that could have been connected 2 inches back) and a spaghetti wiring HELL.

But at least I made progress.

I'm going to bed know. Hope everyone has at least got out to ride once or twice since the weather has warmed up.

Have a kick ass weekend

seems lik you are on the right track. A word of advice - use a lot of shrink tube and tape, you will want all your hard work to be water resistant if not waterproof.

good luck

yeah, that'll clean it up nicely too. i gotta figure out what kind of lights and turn signals i want though.

Anyone have any recommendations for a nice big headlight (like the stocker? my mount is broken) and turn signals that stick off the forks?

Was that wired by a kid?
Considering it's had a very large amount of owners (somewhere around 6) i'd say there is likelihood that many people have attempted to wire it lol.
