    Engine kit arrived, Christmas came early for me! I will start checking out the kit over turkey time, cleaning it up and getting ready for installation. Most likely have the exhaust Cerakoted to protect the pipes and get a little better performance.

    Started going through the bits and pieces from the engine kit. Looks like everything is there and appears to be in good shape. Started cleaning it up a bit and giving some thought to the wiring mods I will need to do. Here's a pic of the engine.

    That's for sure Martin. I am looking through the diagram at what are the usual suspects to eliminate, Sidestand sw, Tipover sensor, O2 sensor, etc. Seems like the entire turn signal/side stand relay can be eliminated as long as you bypass the instrument cluster neutral light ground to the gear position sensor.....more research to follow....looks pretty similar to the others I have done.

    Man, that must be one angry toaster!

    As I work through the wiring harness, I am willing to bet about 30% of the wiring can be eliminated. Just keeping the core engine functions/sensors along with starting circuits and lights.

    No sweat, let me see what I come up with as far as leftovers and I can send it to you. I may end up using some wire to extend the harness to the front for the gauge cluster and switches. Its that or I break out the "wire stretcher"!

    Need to pick up a tool to depin the wires from the connectors and get things rolling on the harness. Didn't you recommend a tool somewhere here on the site? Can't seem to find it....
