The wiring loom connectors under the tank on my 73 interstate is a bit of a mess and interferes with the twin carby slide cables. what is the best way to tidy this up?
Yes I used the threaded insert for the old head steady rubber as an earth point.ntst8 said:One query, the earth wire that used to connect to the old headsteady is presumeably the red wire on the left of the second pic?
If your bike is standard with points/zener/rectifier its probably easier to take off the old loom and use it as a pattern. If you have a boyer/podtronic or similar setup its easy enough to make a new loom on the kitchen table with the odd visit to the garage to get lengths/postions correct with the final fitting on the bike - thats what I did.dgwilson said:So what is the best way to tackle a new harness?
Do you strip the old one out and use it as a length guide, or loom the wires up according to the wiring diagram. and hopefully swap over in an afternoon. I want to keep riding while I make the new loom if possible.
I used Vehicle Wiring Products in the UK they supplied all the wire, connectors and PVC tubing, the only wire colour they didn't have was light green/brown.Stuart SS said:Is there anyone .. dealer / trader that can supply original colour coded wire/ cables to rebuild these things?
