Remove old gasket material sucks but done. New gasket and replacement clutch cover installed
Starting to look like a motorcycle again. New Fly Handlebars installed. Rear Foot brake assembly back on. Wrapped the header and was going to install and start it up, but must have lost the exhaust gasket. Ordered and the wait continues.
I'm looking for a front brake cable and a rear brake cable for 2 different Fat Cats. Is there an interchange from another bike that will work? I'm guessing an xr200 or an ATC 200. Any suggestions?
Have you tried Motion Pro?
Motion Pro has no part number and therefore, do not have any in stock and will not custom build. Called them today.
Installed the Fenders and installed the aftermarket copy rear light. Aftermarket Rear Rack is bad design as it sits right on the rear light. Installed the Brush Guards and Battery as well as the Carburetor I rebuilt. This weekend she gets done, hopefully.
The battery according to the manual says 12V - 9AH. I just put a 9 in mine. The only real difference is the life between charges. I like the higher CCA of the 9, but since SC never really gets that cold, it doesn't really matter to me.
Header wrapped and exhaust installed as well as the heat shields. Waiting on the chain scrapers, which was missing. Need to put the finishing touches on the engine cylinder fins and then I can assemble the rest of her.
I picked up an amateur rebuild not long ago. The starter works if I bypass the starter solenoid. The broken key switch was wired in an "always-on" position. So, I bought a new battery and an NOS switch and still no fire. Looking at the bundle of worms at the steering neck, most wires can only go one way, but I have 3 green females and only 2 green males. I have looked at the wiring diagram but it includes a speedo illumination wire that, of course, is not on the bike. Is there an idiot-proof way to know if everything is plugged into the correct, color-coded position? And what is the likely culprit (faulty part) if the connections are right?
The devil is in the details. Used the Dremel to sand the fins on the cylinder head as per stock. Installed the Fuel Tank. Had to weld one of the headlights brackets and painted the last pieces.
Last painted pieces...
Anyone know where the stock location of the emissions decal goes?
The key switch wires.
The greens are grounds.
My bike has no speedo and has one empty female green and brown.
The black/white and solid black to key are the same color as the black/white and solid black to the left bar on/off and starter bundle so you could have them mixed up.
Left bar controls.
The key switch I have has 3 male and one (black) female. Is that right? If it is, then there is no way to mix them up.
Now that I think about it, I could have the black&white wires switched....
It looks like the blacks and black/whites and brown go to the same places on the frame side so you can't screw them up.
Yes there males G, R, Black/white
One female black
Check the fuse on the red from the key to starter.
Twin 30 amp fuses and one was blown. Replaced and it instantly blew.
Reversed the battery hookup (it was in backwards ) and it all works now.
What a rookie move
Thanks to cappt! Kept me from throwing in the towel.
Now, is there a plug-and-play LED headlight bulb? Someone earlier said it was an "H4" but I'm not schooled in the LED lingo.
Looks like the Chain Slider is NLA. Any secret sources for 52170-HB7-000?
She fired right up. Did the Header Wrap Burn-in and that's a sight to see. Smells like @$$. She's 99% done. Just need to add the rest of the decals as well as the green registration decal. She is missing the front sprocket cover so I need to source that as they are no longer available. Then a little bit of paint touchups and this project will be complete. Did a few rounds around the pool and she shifts great.
