Wow, thats awesome! I understand, but you're an engineer and probably did things much more thoroughly than I ever could!

Nah, doesn't take an engineer....lots of guys have done this. You just need to plan it out and stick to the plan and go wire by wire. It gets a little hairy at times....but just go wire by wire and you'll push through!

wonderful job! Congratulations!!! But I didn't understand where you hid the wires between the seat and the tank (right side). Got any pictures?

10 year old "thread", last post was 4 years ago, so it may be awhile before you get an answer.

Cosmo was my inspiration to do this on my bike. Twice. (on different sporties) The way I did it was to completely deconstruct the OEM harness by cutting off every connector approximately 6 inches back, and then run entirely new wire from there. I have 6 holes drilled in my frame, 2 just behind the neck on either side of the back bone, 1 just above the air cleaner facing down on the backbone, 1 just above the rear cylinder facing down, 1 at the bottom of the backbone above the rear engine mount, and 1 at the rear of the backbone just below the subframe that extends back for the seat and to the rear of the bike. ALL wiring is inside the frame. I can take my seat and tank off and the backbone is completely bare from any wire except where it comes out of the holes. It's tedious. Took me 4 months the first time, and 3 months the second time. It takes about 600 ft of wire, a lot of heat shrink, and a LOT of soldering. A factory electrical manual is not only helpful, but essential. Hope that helps.
