    Little update. Oil tank and oil lines in and buttoned up. Decided against using the bling metal braided ones I have after looking closely at the routing and hearing the stories about it wearing away anything it touches.

    Sourced some correct grade hardware to mount the footcontrols, and primary cover hardware.

    Still waiting on electrics to arrive, TC88 ignition, Motogadget M unit and Speedo, wiring etc.Doing some rough sketching of wiring loom at the moment to visualise it. Can't find a fuckin neutral contact for the life of me so will likely be using one stolen from an old FXR loom. Crank angle sensor and oil pressure switch installed. Can confirm the plug for a 2014 CPS is the same as a 2001 CPS, not the same length though.

    Stock dual disc front end on for rego purposes.

    Making up a mount from regulator. Im using a dyna charging system, stock Dyna RR mounts off of tabs on the downtube. I'll be making a little angle mount to get it a bit tighter off the stock style FXR mount.

    The XR1200X's came out with these as standard front and back. For a Harley part they get pretty good reviews from the early model XR1200's owners who upgrade.

    very nice.does this have provision for individual fuses per circuit or a master fuse ?

    Its per circuit, and shorts or faults are isolated to only that circuit/s (with a flashing LED on the circuit to help you pinpoint), and you can also see a digital read out of amperage drawn from each circuit via bluetooth on your phone. 
    It has a tonne of functionality with all the relays controlled digitally, so flashes, alarms etc can switch setups 

     Ill still run a seperate standalone 30amp fuse between regulator and battery as well though.

    Here's a cut n paste of some of the features:

    Features WITHOUT smartphon and m.ride App
    Complete digital control using buttons possible with 4 or 5-button operation.
    Complete replacement for the fuse box. 10 independent circuits are digitally monitored and switched off if there are faults. After the fault is rectified, the safety function is automatically reset.
    Integrated alarm system that can be installed in any position.
    Integrated, digital flasher relay that is load-independent; automatic switch-off optional and can be set; m.wave mode can be selected.
    Integrated hazard warning light.
    Turn signal can optionally be set as a positioning light.
    Integrated parking light and Hi-beam flashing.
    Lo-beam and Hi-beam (up to 200 W switched capacity) can be controlled using only one button.
    Integrated, digital brake light modulator; flashing mode can be programmed.
    Acceleration-controlled emergency brake light (automatic warning signal).
    Integrated starter relay for the starter system with solenoid (up to 30 A switched capacity).
    Intelligent and configurable management/switch-off of power consuming devices so that the maximum starting energy from the battery can be used when starting the bike.
    Integrated, digital horn relay.
    Two configurable additional outputs AUX1 and AUX2.
    Diagnostics function for assigning inputs, outputs, the circuit switching status, short circuit diagnostics etc.
    Current measurement enables faults to be detected on all lights suchs as headlights, turn signals, brake lights etc.


    Features WITH smartphone and m.ride App
    Encrypted connection via Bluetooth® LE (Low Energy) for manipulation protection and lower smartphone and m.unit blue energy usage.
    Keyless Go (the on-board electrical system is switched on when you approach the bike with your smartphone).
    Alarm events are sent via Bluetooth® to the App (with date, time, vehicle on the floor etc.).
    Alarm system mode and sensitivity can be adjusted.
    The on board voltage can be monitored in the App.
    Diagnostics on all inputs and outputs; current, voltage and device temperature measurement.
    Real-time audio fault messages issued via the helmet headset.
    Outputs can be switched manually via smartphone (except for starter).
    Firmware updates provided anywhere via smartphone and App without removal.
    Setup menu can be configured anywhere via smartphone and App without removal.
    Speedometer input for comparing the vehicle mileage with m.ride can be used for vehicle management with automatic alerts for maintenance tasks, the condition of the tires, chain, brake pads, oil, operating fluids, spark plugs etc.
    Logbook for recording journeys and displaying the vehicle status, alarm events and maintenance tasks.
    Parking position display and Ping! for help locating the vehicle.
    LIN bus connection for connecting to compatible motogadget products at a later date.

    jeez , thats a handy bit gear plus fault finder and locator are a bonus..do you mind,how much was it and where did you find it ? .cheers

    I got mine through Hurtle Gear, but you can get em off eBay and random places a bit cheaper. 
    Mine was 550 for the blue, cheaper for non bluetooth

    Making good process on the wiring, obvious had to wait for more tools to arrive, ferrule crimper being the super useful one. 

    Hand controls + front indicators are on a single 12 pin Deutsch DTM plug. I made a little bracket that the plugs mount on under the tank away from everything .

    The dash wiring is crazy small stuff (26 and up guage), very challenging but DTM pins and heat shrink 

    I'm modifying a new 01 ignition loom, repositioning plugs, re doing plug combos.

    Tins have been picked up for a crazy paint job.

    slowly but surely,cant rush good things.dont we all love fine wiring and limited access.
