It's in the plans don't worry I am not a fan of that either but it's been low on the priority list.


Just giving you a hard time :gayfight:

Can't wait to get out on track with you!

Looking back through your photos I noticed you have a large bundle of wires(throttle side) out side of the frame rail. Run that stuff inside the frame rail behind the radiator. You don't want that stuff getting destroyed from a simple low side.

Never thought about that, I got lucky they didnt get crushed last time but I had frame sliders on. I am getting rid of them for next year and going case savers.

Ill be ditching the stock sub frame for on from Justin a Trackside parts, so I have been planing to tuck the ecm and PCV with the auto tune under the tank.

I recommend selling the PCV and simple flash the ECU. MDM can take the map from your PCV and flash it right on to the eco, as well as the quick shifter. Less to go wrong. The ECU will remain in its current location with the new sub frame. you don't have enough room under the tank for anymore than what is currently there. Also consider ECU's don't like heat.

Got these wires tucked tonight and started on the other side but needed to unpin the harness and it was starting to get cold.

I plan to get rid of the clutch switch. I would imagine connecting them together would work.

After reading some more I guess the rectifier gets too hot in that position, but I cant see how as it gets more airflow there than in the stock position with the armor bodies fairings. I have a new harness but Ill buy a spare rectifier as well just in case.

As far as the tune goes, the stock 02 sensor wires have been cut on my factory harness, I planned on getting a tune from BAUCE Racing Anthony didnt seem to think it would be ok just to leave it as is.

That is the typical placement for the rectifier. After her flashes the ECU the O2 sensor won't be used.

Fuck the autotune. Causes more problems that its worth, because it doesn't know if you're in the low or high throttle map..

I was able to figure how to connect the power wire from the harness to the fuse block, relay, and rectifier by using two lugs and a marine power block that is tin coated copper.

I am waiting on the block off plates and high temp heat wrap before finalizing everything but I tested and the bike does turn over and no codes on the dash.

I didn't have too, once I opened up the harness the main power feed wire and the r/r wire were broken at the connect so I figured I'd reroute some stuff and move it all inside the frame.

There was no good way to connect them back like factory with a quality connector so a marine 100amp power block was the only way to go and allow the wires to get airflow.

2 six gauge stud lugs fit perfect. I'm going to but aluminum heat shield on all of the wires as well.

I have a spare uncut harness as well if this didn't work.

After a few beers and some head scratching I have come up with a better solution and some more rerouting of wires to make it much cleaner.

Also installed my block off plates and pulled the exhaust servo off.


Only things left to complete before April 17th at NJMP are get forks and shock back from Mike at MDM, install new subframe, finish up wiring, install new chain and sprockets and buy a new helmet.

Have you serviced all of your swing arm and linkage bearings while the shock is out?

Pulled all the sleeves and greased the needle bearings with some fresh mobile one.

rewired and wraped the wires in kevlar insulated aluminum wrap.

No more power block, Relocated fuse block and finalized all wiring.

Waiting on my suspension now and to take the bike for an ECM flash. April 17th is coming fast.

Suspension is completed and I will be picking it up from MDM on Friday. Went out to change the steering stem bearings and I was sent the wrong ones. If anyone knows someone with a few spares I would be willing to drive to Nj or Ny to get a set to finish this weekend.

I just want to say you're doing some good work. Your apparent skills seem very well suited for projects like this, and successfully thinking outside the box is what really stands out. Good on ya. Gotta love it when a plan comes together. ;)
