Today was Husaberg project day.

I finally wired in an ignition switch. For those of you who don't know, the Husaberg is a race bike. As such it lacks things like an ignition switch and steering lock. I sourced the switch from Suzuki - the 2004 DRZ400 has a great ignition switch. It's 3 position: OFF, ON, PARK, with 2 circuits.

I used it to disable the starter. It works. I plan to use the other circuit to disable the fuel pump. I'm sourcing the connectors but it should work also. It will simply turn off the pump and the engine will die.

I fashioned a dashboard out of 1/8" aluminum. It mounts directly to the top triple clamp and covers the area between the headlight mask and the triple clamp. My ignition switch mounts there on the righthand side. On the left hand side is a single powerlet.

I am in the process of converting all of my indicator lamps to LEDs. I found some high intensity panel mount LEDs that only require a 5/16" hole from http://www.radlites.com/led_body_mounts_lighting.htm.



They are bright! I will install a series resistor to dim them a bit.

I also reworked my turn signals. I fashioned some mounts out of 1/8" aluminum stock to mount a set of Hyperlites turn signals http://www.hyperlites.com/turn.html

I will have to install a couple of 100 ohm/2 watt resistors to load the flasher relay. Otherwise they are excellent: bright and look great.

I also completed wiring in a relay with fuseblock. I sourced it all from Jim Davis of Eastern Beaver. www.easternbeaver.com. Good stuff, quick turnaround even though he's in Japan.

I'll post some pics of all this goodness when I get it done.
