That 500 mile wait is brutal but worth it. I keep looking at your bike and wondering why yours seems to have such a smaller bundle of wires dropping down at the rear of the engine (from the back bone down). My bundle is huge and yours looks fairly small. Did you re-wire and re-route some of the wiring? Mines just a basic wire tuck. Love the paint, REALLY makes me want to get custom paint. Your running 4 over fork tubes?

I rewired this thing a few years back. Took out most of the connectors off that sit under the tank. Bundled all the wires together and re routed them to sit under the tank them come out on the left side and into the battery compartment. Moved the computer into the battery area as well. I’ll try to get some pics up for ya.

Yeah I’m running TC Bros 4 over forks. Will probably switch to 6 over next year. Love them. I recommend getting custom paint on the tank. Sets it apart big time.

I hear you as soon as I finish my 120hp build it going hard to keep it in the rpm range for break in. My Electra glide I had to keep under 3k for the first 500. It wasn’t that bad Cause that was like 70-75 mph in 6th gear.
