wiring scares the crap out of me.. I would love to clean up the mess behind the headlight as well.. but anytime I touch anything to do with electricity I run the risk of letting out all the magic blue smoke that makes it all run

It needs cleaning up. I have a switch setup to turn the headlights on/off (I turn them off if I'm trail riding) and I have an auxiliary LED light that is switched also. I plan on adding heated grips. I also have my GPS wired to switched power and I have a powerlet socket...

What easy to add (and small) connectors do you recommend (that are also weather/water proof)? I have a weatherpak connector in the bottom of the pic, but it's way big. I would like something smaller, that is easy wire in, but is resilient.

Suggestions?
thats postively tidy compared to mine :



why bother with waterproof connectors? they are all big as far as i've seen. Most of the harness is molex connectors so thats what i used with my fuzeblock set up

I would hit up the guy that runs Eastern Beaver.

I ride my bike pretty hard, but spend a lot of time trying to keep it looking special.

It's now 8 months old and I'm getting all these little brown flecks across the side of the engine, the hubs, the swingarm, etc. They look like dirt, but they aren't.
I've tried truck wash, CRC, Lanolin, Degreaser, petrol, brake & clutch cleaner, rubbing.
Is it tiny rust bits? Some metal chemical reaction?
The don't come off and there's hundreds of these tiny discolorations everywhere.

Anyone got any ideas?

Could someone offer me some insight on wiring up the brake light on my 09 FE? I thought the 2 pin connector below the battery was for the rear brake light switch but I must be wrong, one wire is brown (ground) the other is blue/yellow (hot). obviously completing that circuit results in a blown fuse. I found the front switch connector and it works fine but I was hoping to just use a switch on the rear, no front.

TIA
Dave

The rear brake light plug is hidden well. It is underneath the wiring harness going toward the front of the bike on the left side under the seat. Completely out of sight unless you dig under there looking for it. At least that's where mine was.
Pic shows it after I dug it out, it was under that other connector, I had to pull those up and out to even see there was anything under there.
Plug your switch wire into there and voila! Brake lights.

I found it! All bundled up with the main wire harness in front of the shock reservoir. Man they stuffed a lot of wires on these bikes.

Mark - Are you converting this to a race bike, or will this be a backup?

I hope I don't regret this! I have a new CACycleworks that I took to Baja as a spare. So far with about 3500 miles, mine has never shown any sign of failure and I've had it hot on single track some.

If someone needs one immediately, I'll take what I paid for it ($129) and you pay shipping.
