Farkling

Installing the Phoenix switch, 2730 and you don't see them, the V-1 and autocomm


The Painless fuse block is in place, beginning stages or wiring. I'm using one always hot for a spare power port for my Thomas Compressor that I carry in a saddle bag.


For giggles, I pulled the gas tank to see what was under there


Though the air filter is easy to get to, the fuel filter access is on the bottom front of the gas tank. sigh.


Pulled the cowling under the windshield to route wires from V-1 and Garmin puck (both will be on Big Mak shelf). The V-1 accessory unit will be mounted under the shelf where I can see it and get to it.


What an easy bike to work on and a joy when it's so clean. Getting to valves is prolly gonna be fun.

I picked her up Wednesday, she has 80 miles on her, mostlyl twisties going home the back way from Austin. I'll be thru with the farkling today as I really need to ride, but figured getting the radar detector on her was imperative and since she was gonna be tore down anyway....

Good thing I love doing this or I'd be insane (uh, nevermind) by now.

IT BEGINS!!!!

Congratulations Grif. I am so jealous, I can't stand it :o


Thought on the compressor. The emmisions canister is, at least on the K-R, on the left side of the bike in a really buried spot. Might be a good place to strap the pump...a la LT.

I saw it, the same on the GT. Really easy to get to with the gas tank off. I've never felt the urge to mount the compressor. It's so small I just keep it in the saddlebag.

One will be for the Motolights, the other for lighting unknown at this time. I know the switches are upside down. I likes them like that.

I'm wiring the fuse box trigger to the parking lights so it will go on immediately and want to control when the Motolights turn on. One reason for instant on is this kewl leetle digital volt meter that I'll be Frenching into a panel.
