This years project
« on: October 18, 2018, 12:37:33 PM »
This winter I am making small improvments and correcting any jobs I have rushed in the past, these include replacing all the nuts and bolts of the fairing mounting hardware, with titanium items, titanium bolts and slide pins for the front brake caliper, and a fairing mounted dash. I have new switchgear fitted in chrome, they are a bit smaller than the originals so I can play around with the spacing of the leavers. A new front and rear light are going in and a belly pan is going to be fitted

The rev counter is daytona, the speedo is just a cheap generic job, and the boost and the air fuel ratio gauges are aftermarket items

Nice one, Joolz! That's what I call an instrument cluster! How's the "cheap generic" Speedo working out - smooth, sufficiently accurate? Keeping warm as usual, I see  :'(

The generic speedo seems pretty good and tallies to the car speedo well (mrs followed me home one day) the cluster does look good, although Im having a real problem with all the wires in the headlamp shell and havent even bothered connecting up the new switch gear, its a bit of a wiring nightmare and Im not good with jap electrics far too complicated. Oh yes its lovely and warm in my "workshop" :)

I had a lot of problems incorporating the handlebar controls into the standard loom so I started from scratch and made my own loom :)

Very clean and tidy-looking loom  8) Are you running an aftermarket coil?

Yes I use one of those generic high output coils from ebay, not too expensive and seems to work ok

Anything us mere mortals with bog standard engines would benefit from, or not really worth it? Iridium plug is as far as I've gone, spark-wise.

I dont think the high output coil will benefit much, but its cheaper that a new coil from Honda :) Iridium plugs are a good idea though
