    The motor is in. Sadly now it's wiring next.

    I hate wiring.

    This works which is good but have not a clue how to engage the starter motor.

    Maybe I will just do the fuel system. Lol

    Work backwards. Connect the starter up to the starter solenoid. Connect the other side of the solenoid to the battery. Use a screwdriver to short across the solenoid to start the engine. Easy peasy!!!

    Well, there's more to it than that. You need a hotwire from the battery to the ignition coil.

    I really miss the old days.


    Edit: This hotwire trick saved me when my 1970's era motorhome had an electrical short and blew out the fusible links. I just hotwired it on the spot and drove it home. It was a trick I learned from my brother when he would take the family Plymouth Belvedere for a joyride. With me in it.

    Wiring on these newer fuel injected bikes can be somewhat overwhelming. Take a look at the wiring diagram and eliminate anything you dont need from the diagram and see what is left. It took some time for me too as my harness had been modified previously (not by me) and I had to also figure out what I had and what was needed to get it to run. Take your time and like Darwin said do one step at a time where you know its needed and knock off all the little things one at a time.

    Thanks guys. I've taken my own advice for now and started on the fuel system. A second hand genuine pump assembly is $500 plus and a new pump is well over $1k. So plan B. They run a dead head system at a constant 3bar pressure. Well that's easy.

    Fuel tank

    Filter

    External pump

    1:1 adjustable fuel reg with gauge

    Bleed fuel back to the tank

    Rest to injector rail.

    Cost ~$200

    Wow, that's pricey for OEM stuff. Ouch!

    External pump with a reg is the way to go - they're a dime a dozen and some are pretty darned good units. The one I'm using in the MR was a kit someone here on MBN put up for sale years ago and I snagged it at what I recall was a decent price.

    I believe I'm doing the same setup you're talking about - pump to reg, overpressure is pissed back to the tank and the pressurized line runs to the injector rail.

    Thus far it's worked well (and now that I've said that it's gonna leak or quit or catch on fire or....)

    If memory serves it's already done all those things.

    Mind you the odds of you finishing your dash before my wiring is done is weighted in your favor.

    Not a huge amount to update. Collecting parts for the fuel system and gave the shed fire a workout.

    It's been a complex few months. Feels like a long time ago the plaster came off but still working my ass off to catch up on the bills.

    Lost a mate of 27 years the other day. The bells of mortality chim when your looking the other way.

    Anyway. Cooling system is done on the new motor. Few more pipes than the old motor so some reading and understanding of the new setup was needed. The oil cooler also needed some small changes but nothing big. Bit excited as the fuel system will be next that will enable a test start before the great wiring extension. Best know it runs before throwing anymore changes into the mix.

    Hope you are all doing well and enjoying your Xmas/new years.

    Yeah, I'm ahead of you in wiring my Kid's ATV, but it's simple compared to what you need to tackle. I wish you luck.
