Got the graphics (writing) off e-bay. Any colour you want. Got the Tuareg from Ruggeroads (reflective). Rest of the stuff I just made up as I went along.

Now that I think of it, I'll have to update my profile picture

Mmmm... kinda agree with ya there.

Then again, a mud-packed low guard can bring on a gravity attack pretty quick.

Spose its a "form vs function" thing.

Wiring harness help

HELP

OK, Ive decided seing Im keeping the old girl forever and after nearly 400,000km Im going to treat her to a new complete wiring harness to stave of any more electrical gremlims

My bike is originally a UK bike , 1990 RD04 XRV750L , been prowling , http://www.cmsnl.com/

It seems the wiring harness is NA anymore , bugger

HOWEVER

It seems all wiring harnesses are not all the same. Various other 1990 AT harnesses are available . eg

1990 UK - No - 32100MV1710 -NA

1990 Austria - 32100MV1660 - available
1990 Belgium/Fra/Neth - 32100MV1630 - available
1990 Germany - 32100MV1620 - available


Anyone got any ideas of the differences ?? I cant see any from the fische piccies

I think your best bet is to carefully study the wiring diagram for your bike and the target bike from which you can source the original wiring harness.

On another note, and if you have the time... why don't you try to rebuild your own wiring harness?

A lot of work it may seem, but it's not impossible...

If you care to PM me the frame number of your AT I can try to check the parts system for alternatives, if any... I work for the manufacturer no promises, though...

As Ireland is a wet place the main reason I fitted the high guard was to do the Paddy Dakar which involves some off roading in September so will be wet and muddy. Just don't want the front wheel locking up.

I find it grand. Still keeps the surface water away from everything it should and it doesn't vibrate or anything so no issues there. I kinda like the look to but it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Also my lower mud guard on my current AT was damage so easier just to fit the high one.



I'm thinking of doing the repsol colours on the new bike to but not until after the Paddy Dakar.

I'll have to check the Haynes manual wiring diagrams but I'd say the rd04 was like the rd07a in that the wiring was changed a few time during its time and each time it did they but a different letter on the frame sticker ie. model Xrv750r or Xrv750w. That letter is specific to the wiring diagram in the Haynes so look under you saddle and see which you have.

Maybe the difference is you guys ride on the other side of the road. JK. I've seen whole harnesses on ebay from breakers. Clean it up and fuhgetabatit.
