An Intriguing concept as I want to build the complete or part loom for my project .
Is there anyone .. dealer / trader that can supply original colour coded wire/ cables to rebuild these things?
I am in Australia. I have never found a trader that has this luxury at hand.
Earth Points ~ As long as there is a solid earth point and link from the frame to engine it does not matter where the standard/ original earth point is.
The best way to approach a rewiring job is to have it laid out on the workshop floor and consider each section as you go. It is just too hard to try and in particular, to match it up in length while mounted.
Always be generous in lengths. If the original section is 12" , make yours 12 1/2" , or 13" . I tell you it is a right bitch to find you have made it too short !
(Consider even adding several extra ( 3mm ) cables. Even if they run the length of the bike, they may prove an asset later on. )
Additionally ~ plan your project. Ask , can it be improved? Would circuit breakers be a better deal than fusing. Would relay/s be more effective in lighting?
BUT definitley ditch that ~~~ multipin block under the fuel tank. Either eliminate or modify it !
I guess this comes easy as I spent many years in the auto electrical trade, (before I decided I detested it ! :lol: ) But I always did enjoy designing and rewiring complete vehicles.
