    I doubt anyone here will have such an intimate knowledge of their 790 as you bro. Dang.

    Ok, dumb Q: Why isn't your shock in the same plane as your wheel? Is it the angle of the photo or is something askew?

    It's the perspective somehow, had to raise phone above head to fit it in.. looks better in real than in image

    Edit. Wheel might be in angle as it's just hanging there..

    Or perspective..

    Your work here is done :lol3
    Great to hear, that would be a convenient bundle with airbox also concerning shipping overseas.

    No doubt. It's just that gasoline is quite different compared eu vs us .. or at least this is what I've heard. That's why I decided to tune at local dyno shop. :dunno

    @Noyah @a.c.e.

    So what's it going to be? We already have orange frame =)

    Only half joke - it could be a trigger for me to renew graphics if they were designed as a tribute to 1979 model but looking nice and modern (like we '79ers).

    If there's any 'artist' with spare time, software and templates give it a shot.. I'm too much of an engineer to do art work - could photoshop a sticker with '79eR at max :type

    Got all bits to extend tft wire now
    Screenshot_127.jpg

    I had piece of 18x0,75 Ă–lflex and another piece from 7x0,75 to get all wires marked different (the numbers are slightly different between 18x and 7x). Need 22 wires in total, also original wire is 0,75mm2.

    Knicks knacks, just when I learned how to do it - it was finished. Seems to sit pretty tight, expecting to be as good as original.
    Screenshot_124.jpg

    Also ordered some of those Sopoby connectors and put one loop as test using a heat gun. Surely would be easier for only two handed person to use these instead of solder + shrink tube.
    It seems to act the same as when soldering and reaching the needed temp and see tin spread all over. To be honest the joint does look very good.
    Screenshot_126.jpg

    Obviously I wanted to see where / how it brakes and it seems to act the same as soldered. Wire did not detach from joint but extended a bit and was cut next to joint. Didn't measure the resistance but should be ok as wires are in direct contact to each other and just 'glued' together with tin inside the tube.
    Screenshot_125.jpg

    Next I need to make a chart of wire colors of tft connector. Tried to look for it in the rep.manual but electric scheme is so blurry that colors are difficult to read and it's easier to write down than crawl through it all to find each wire.

    Also I need to order male pins for headlight connector, totally forgot and just ordered housing. I will convert hl connector to exc type so I can switch masks between 790 and excs and extend wire to keep everything neat.

    Looking forward to this extension. I'd still love to relocate my TFT to the bars, so I can free up the entire area for the tablet.

    I think you can move it without extending the wire if you keep other stuff behind headlight. That was also my goal at first but then things somehow got out of hands..

    To remove wires/pins from tft connector it needs to be unlocked first - after all the pins back in position it can be locked from the other side by pushing those two white buttons in.
    Screenshot_130.jpg Screenshot_131.jpg

    Some positions are plugged and that leaves 22 pins in use. Positions are numbered 1-34.
    Screenshot_129.jpg

    As slightly color blind (light red-green blindness) I don't really like color coded wires so I tend to be extra cautious with them. I removed wires one line at time and mark those as group and made a chart with plan what color goes to what number in extension. There was at least two wires with exactly same color, probably coming from same spot but I made a mark to one to keep them exactly oem order.
    Screenshot_132.jpg

    'Soldering' was super easy with these connectors and heatgun. I took about 10mm insulation open for wires and twist them together so that it left about 5mm for solder. The only thing slightly bothering was that tin sometimes spread along wire no matter what I did, it stopped to red spot (that's probably why they are there) and should still be perfect.

    For no reason at all, I put shrink tubes on top of each connect

    Now I have ~50cm longer cable for TFT and need to get some shield tube on top to begin putting things back together.

    Damn.... That's a lot of connnections to get right. If I tried that my bike would probably never run again. Nice work!

    I would be more comfortable splitting the cases than doing that. Your photos should be censored Ramirin too scary.

    I got the polarity wrong installing the rugged amps mount. Only 2 wires. :lol3
