Well, that was fast. The M.button came in the mail today, faster than I expected. Props to the good people at Jemparts.se for the fast delivery although I must say that their customer service and communication skills leave much to be desired. Anyways, I can now proceed with the Great Wiring… Fortsätt läsa M.button, M.unit, M.showtime
With the CBR in decent shape, I’ll keep her on hold for a while and attack my second project: The KTM 690 Enduro -08.

I however suspect it’s the wire harness that keeps bugging me…
Being the enthusiastic guy I am, I didn’t have the patience to order a relay or resistors off the internet so I went to a store and got me a relay which according to the salesman will give me both plug-and-play installation and the correct flash frequency no matter what kind of turn signal I use… Fortsätt läsa Flash it!

Like for example soldering the wires to the crimps because I don’t trust them enough. That’s what I did today when I installed the electrical section of the TomTom RIDER 400 bar mount… Fortsätt läsa And she’s done!

Today I got another idea when I found a set of turn signals I actually intended to use to repair my KTM. Fortsätt läsa Light from the side
Nothing can replace practical knowledge but sometimes a bit of theory can help you on the way. I spent the evening reading “How to troubleshoot, repair and modify motorcycle electrical systems” by Tracy Martin. Just reading the title took me half of the evening… I finally finished it (except for the part about own projects) and I think I’m starting to see the light. Fortsätt läsa Electrical, eclectical
