    More wiring work. The order for specific connectors I put in through the dealership 6 weeks ago.... turns out they hadn't been ordered after all. Hopefully here this week then I can finalise the harness.

    Fairing brackets fabbed for quick release 39mm clamps work well, but will be having them redone properly.

    Sorry JR but that fairing is what I imagine Darth Vader's foreskin looks like. Not that I have spent a lot of time pondering what his penis looks like, it just popped into my head when I saw the photo.

    Maybe you could get number plate DARTH4 for it. I can imagine the look on peoples faces when you tell them it is not the fourth number plate in the series but in fact stands for 4skin.

    Seriously though if you are worried about the SS or Ti bolts galling use copper slip. This is compulsory for all SS bolts in our workshop.

    There's some deeper issues there that don't need to be explored on a bike page, but I appreciate the feedback regardless haha.

    Maybe I should swap the bassani for a Thunderheader to match that theme?

    You 100% have to install a Healtech Quickshifter!  Best money I have spent on my bike in years...

    About 100ms atm.  90-100 seems to work good + a 20ms delay to the ign cutout which is pressure triggered so it lets you load up the tranny before the actual 100ms ign cutout/shift kicks in.

    Massive Rookie error... testing all the wiring on the motogadget, all switchgear all good, but switch for dash isn't working... Obviously that was the 1 switch I didnt test, and the 1 loom that is connected smack bang in the backbone. So plugs depinned, slid back out, and i'll wack a new switch and wires that actually terminate somewhere servicable.

    Other then that, the Motogadget's working well, even after I direct shorted the battery onto it haha.

    Haaaa No issues with me Tussock, I don't do drugs. I always tell my mum that I am this silly because of the drugs she did back in the sixties when she was pregnant with me.
