Sure thing... It will be raining on Sunday here, so that will give me some time to dive into it. I have already drawn up a wiring ID chart, and I must say its going to be pretty freaking simplistic.

No fuses, no relays, one wire tail light. Keeping, stator and reg/rect and thats it. At least that's how is suppose to work. :) OO and no key!

OK, here is my basic wiring layout. Gonna get started on this tomorrow, so I welcome any input form the wiring gods.

The left/right controls will both be handled with a single multiple conductor cable, more then likely 6, but maybe 9 to leave me some room to use the other buttons if I need them. That lap button would be a great nitro button.. lol

OK, just a quick update on the build. This will probably by my last update for a week or so, as we are leaving Wed for the Gator Nationals.. :evil: Won't be back till Monday.

So I finished up the battery and components box and mocked everything up (reg/rect, battery, starter relay, M-Unit, M-Lock, and a spot for my custom igniter. I used all my old components for mock up purposes and will be replacing later. Now I just need to pull the box apart and paint it before I start running the wiring permanently.

A quick note on the M-Unit and its mounting arrangement. I originally planned on mounting it on its own tray horizontally across the top of the battery box facing up. However, the unit has a built in alarm w/tilt sensor and for that to work it has to be mounted vertically like you see it now. How effective it is has yet to be seen, but figured if it has it I will try and use it.

Also, you may have notice above that I added back in the starter relay. The M-Unit starter relay is rated at 40A and recommends using the factory relay for some motorcycles with larger draw. So I figured I would use it to make sure I didn't have an issue.

Lastly, that the M-Lock is mounted at the bottom of the tray in front of the M-Unit. You can see it in the first pick. It will sit behind the side cover and be completly hidden from view. A quick pass of the FOB should fire her up. (in theory) We shall see. .

Thanks..

OK I lied.. lol

I got these in the mail yesturday, sooner then i thought and as I had a difficult timing tracking them down I thought I would post the info in case anyone else doing a build or adding rear sets needs them.

These are Metric (M-6) Hex Bar Turnbuckles. They come in various sizes and are like 5 bucks a piece. I got them from Midwest Control Products. Fit, finish, and function is prefect.

As said by many others, your bike looks awesome!! I don't know if I missed it but would you include some info on how you prepped and painted your motor which also looks the business!!!.

Great work,

Hey Jack, damn nice bike. We are both doing the same mechanical type of work on nearly the

same bikes but in totally different ways. Nice to see a different perspective on things. Your

work is much cleaner by the way. I don't know how I missed your build up to this point. Great job

taking this KZ into the 21st century. Id say I cant wait to see her done but I don't want to spoil

your fun. Cant wait to see the crotch rocket kids walk by this one and say "What Tha" and you will

have to wipe drool off it.

Would really like to know more about your wiring project for I have a J model engine and Moto Martin rolling chassis that will need all the electrical and a bit stumped on getting that started. I finally got my donor motor but need to get the electrical side of things worked out before going any further.

Blue.. thanks for the kind words.

Media blast, high temp engine paint and bake! The covers are just media blasted at this point, while I toy with the idea of polishing them. But they may end up painted as well.. lol

What would you like to know? Anything specific? I will document as I go along for sure and will help out the best that I can. So feel free to ask away.
