So not touched for ages, and only ever started with a frame, in lockdown so been of faceache all day everyday to stay in touch, low and behold this loom turns up with switchgear for £40 posted, well to say I’m happy is an understatement. Had a few texts with Mutts as I’ve got the iggy and pd that he wired up so I know (fingers crossed) what to do to get it wired up. Hopefully then I can get the brakes done and start stripping to get some colours on it.
Quick update, 3 hours splitting the Canadian loom today, made a sub loom to change the handlebar controls to uk spec. All the wiring sorted now. Was a bugger to get it all to work how it should but worth the hassle.
Russ now you’ve sorted the loom can you advise how to do it I have one to do,cheers 😀
The only problem I’ve encountered so far is I’ve split the live to the clocks and rear light and main beam to 1 wire so the fuse for the tail is now defunct. It’s pretty easy but I’m using non standard lights etc.
Not a biggy as been tidying cave to get this benched up. Cut the helmet lock off so seat now fits as shock got in way. Hopefully in the cave a bit longer tomorrow. I’ll shape it more to surround the shock before it gets painted.
Spent a few hours this morning reshaping the gsxr yokes to accept the LC ignition and clocks, still need to make a couple of spacers but happy it’s another job ticked off the list. Will get some better risers welded on and some lower renthal bars.
So the gsxr forks needed chroming, dropped on these rgv ones that didn’t. The outers were a bit scabby so had a thou or too whipped off to make them smooth again. Was going to do them white but seen someone doing that and I’m not 1 to copy so having eyed them up with the painted muddy I think I’m going mirror polished instead.
