Well? You had a whole weekend, why ain't it done yet?
Waiting for exhaust pipe parts at the end of this week
Wire till your fingers bled?
I have figured it out but will wait untill i have the frame back from poweder coat so i know how much wiring to add
Looks awesome. You got some skills. Would love to be able to do something like this in the future.
Look in the owners thread. There's enough info in the six build threads to get a degree in dirt bike.
Go take some hobbies welding lessons and you'll be golden.
Or, (shameless plug) pay me to build it for you.
Fair enough.. I've welded a little about 20 years ago but have been interested in getting one. I'll look into some classes. Thanks for the tip.
If you find yourself in Sacto, I give free "intro to welding" lessons.
Just the basics, enough to take up the torch on your own afterward.
Thanks for the offer!
Thanks slytheslayer its not so bad. This guy has some realy good info about welding. Watch his welding videos http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com/how-to-tig.html
Well i was waiting for about 2 weeks for pipe bents and pipe to come in and somehow i either forgot to order a 2 into 1 murge collector or they didnt send it. So more waitiing.
In the meantime I fabed the gear shifter and the rear brake petal
i see you have an ABS 500.
you gonna rip out the LED light that shows "ABS", or just cover it with tape lol?
on my crf500l i just bent the stock crf250l rear brake lever to make it fit around the engine, but welding up a new one also works.
One can open up the speedo unit housing and desolder the ABS led. BTW that's the only difference (the missing led) between the abs and non-abs model speedo units.
Yes i will tackle the abs bulb when i get to that later i was thinking of cutting the wire that feeds power to the LED
A lot cleaner to desolder it. i have one open in front of me. I did the reversal. It was advertised as an ABS version so I bought it, but it seems to be from a non-abs bike.
BTW, this is a bit modern unit, so no dedicated wire for the individual lamps, but communicates with the ecu via a serial bus and signals sent digitally - so cutting the abs warning cable does not work.
Edit: rechecked the wiring diagram, and you're right. Everything else but the ABS is via the serial bus, so your method of cutting the cable would be feasible too.
To michaelkozera: I see that you installed rear spools on your bike. Did you drill the rear swing arm as i see that B&B makes a kit that is incorporated into the chain adjusters but at $80us thats a little expensive.
I drilled holes. I also installed lock nuts from the inside of the swing arm.
80$. Holy #%$^@&@. Yeah i payed like 5$
Do you have any pics?
Finally got the exhaust done
