Thank you Flame. Now I have to figure out how to wire all the lights and ignition. My stock ignition has 3 wires 1 red which is hot goes to post 1 on the new ignition which is obvious. 1 red with black stripe looks like its the lights,instrument and starter relay wire. the other is red with grey stripe accessories. I also raised the handle bars to clear the tank.

That's pretty slick! What's the total fuel capacity on that tank system?

Man after my own heart with the home made tank mounts to accept stock frame holes instead of welding them in place. Good thinking.

When in doubt. I use my fluke meter with the key on to wire up ignition switch. Meter tells me where wires go.

Yeah, first click position on switch should be ignition and lights, next is supposed to be accessories. Continuity check will show what's up
