I started to install the complete new wire harness. In the middle I stopped and decided to remove it. I am redoing this bike with some custom work, so I decided to do custom electrical system as well. I found this piece and was very impressed with what it could do.

Just one more set of pictures for now, During the engine rebuild, Larry installed a complete set of Stainless Steel Allen Head Bolts for the entire engine. Paying attention to detail, I thought I would follow. I bought a complete Stainless Steel Allen Head engine mounting hardware set.

It seems the picture of the hardware set isn't the one I used, I should have put on my glasses before I hit submit, anyway you get what I was trying to do. Thanks all for following. I am currently making brackets to mount the rear sets. will be back as soon as I have more. look up the M-unit blue , read about it, watch some videos about it. it is a great piece.

Looking good.
I have been intrigued by the M unit and other Motogadget stuff. It looks like a good choice for custom electrics, or full replacement system, and it comes without the stigma of a cheap price.

I am currently trying to build brackets to mount 2003 GSXR 1000 rear sets onto my frame, has anybody else done this? if so can I have some pics to see the spacing. Especially the right (brake) side of the bike. The main engine bolt seems to interfere with the brake master rod. I can make spacers as well but I would like to see if anybody else had the same problem, and how they solved it before I get crazy. Thank you for all the help.

I have had some time to try to design a bracket. I made a bracket to mount the rear sets, as I'm looking at the frame and ready to mount something hit me. After I mount the header will the brackets fit? So I mounted the header, and the bracket does not work, so back to the drawing board.

This is the header I want to use. It will have to wait due to the price.

So while I try to figure out how to mount the rear sets, I am going forward with other parts of the project. I finally found a rear rim, its an 18" X 6.5 so now I mounted a 200. The old tire was a 160 with a couple of plugs in it.

Come to find out the mounting holes for the risers smaller then the mounting bolts. I have to take everything apart, drill the holes bigger, then reassemble.

My pipe has been ceramic coated and polished. Does any body have information on what is the best way to mount? In pieces or as one unit?

I have tried to install the pipe onto the bike, hard to get all four pipes to align with the exhaust ports correctly.

Could try first removing the header pipes from the collector, and installing each header pipe individually just barely tightened enough to align it within the port (without mashing against the crush washer) in hopes of allowing each header pipe some slight move-ability. Next separate the collector from the muffler (to make the collector easier to handle) and insert the "moveable" header pipes into the collector. Then tighten the header clamps into the exhaust ports snug enough to compress the crush washers. This should leave the header pipes torqued into the exhaust ports and fitted into the collector for a basically completed installation except for the muffler. Lastly, attach the muffler to the collector, and hang the muffler (fashioning a hanger bracket as needed).

I have long enjoyed using a small rubber motor mount between the muffler and hanger bracket, which eliminates most of the muffler vibration from transferring to the frame, and which makes a very noticeable difference when riding.






Good Fortune! :)
