A few pictures of the 12 V wiring process.
I started off by moving the 12/24 V converter to the back of the bike, as it frees up a bit of room in the front and makes it less of a spaghetti junction. I really need to get a rear hugger made up... Saw one for the RGV250 but was for a slightly bigger tyre and wouldn't fit on the RG.
You can also see the auto relay on the left under the controller. About the only remaining spot for it
I brought all of the wiring up to the front and installed the lanyard and kill switch on the right hand side. I needed a thumb-operated kill switch so I got one from the wreckers. Off is on and on is off
Brand new after market part too... The LHS switch block was off an old Yamaha 175 but works good enough for me. I'm mainly interested in the horn
The Horn was a $15 job from the wreckers and I found a spot for it on the front fairing support. Good enough. All the wiring is up here now, so my fuse block can sit directly underneath the cycle analyst.
The new TTX-GP rules are out and they require all non-power LV circuits to be fused, so it's just as well I decided to do this. Plus if I ever want to road register it, it's all ready to go. They also require a big red stop button and a flashing light visible from 30 m away
Ok, so the kill button is no problem - I'll just tap into the main contactor circuit and put it in series with that. But the flashing light?? Visible from 30 m means it needs to be like a camera flash. Do they know how annoying that is going to be??
Anyway, I also rode the pushbike up to Di Lena's steel and bought a bunch of angle iron for the crate. Getting it home was fun - duct-taped it all together and carried it home on the old lady cart I found last junk week. Got a few funny looks as I rode up Scarborough Beach Road
I have done this before with a load of mesh I found:
The screwing and unscrewing was getting tiresome, so this was a better option and a bit stiffer too. I will arrange it so I simply bolt the side panels onto the protruding bolt stems. This way, if Hyena needs to bust the crate up and have a ride all he needs is a 10 mm socket
