top class wiring
« on: June 06, 2018, 05:53:18 AM »

Battery seemed to be on it's way out so last week , thought I would check it out .
Took reg off and low and behold , find this  :o
Changed it over to some decent connectors , checked stator (all good) and threw in a new reg which was just sitting around in my spares box .
Wonder if LX owned this bike before me  ;D
Quote from LX_SS after he dissed my connectors and said they were "overkill"  ;) (only pulling your leg)
"Nope not at all, thats still too good.
I request both wires placed in blue-tak and stuck against the frame. Nothing else ........"
Anyway , before and after .

Unacceptable spitty, you must not use those connectors, they reduce failure rates and offer superior protection.
I request you remove them and go back to blue tak otherwise i might have to contact the chinese authorities :-P

Yeps  :o
That's part of the reason the new reg went in .
I will check it periodically to make sure it's OK but the stator is fine and with the wires just twisted together and taped , it wasn't pretty .
Edit...I also shot in another battery ground . You can see it in pictures with the red heat shrink on it .
You can't have enough good grounding points on these bikes with electrics from hell  ;)

It's a DEUTSCH connector . Expensive but we use lots of them in work , wink wink .
They are the best connectors I have ever used TBH .

Some of the techs where I work are using them for devices in an operating theatre. The AMP brand ones stay dry at 3 bar.

As long as you put electrical grease in them , they will last forever .

Wow Spitty, that looks a heck of a lot safer now, good job.

I actually had a similar incident a while back on my Honda, someone had bodged a car 14v starter relay into the harness in exactly the same fasion as that wiring was on yours.

Probably not as safe as LX's lash ups  ;D but it will do .

Red heatshrink on a black ground wire, now thats more acceptable for bad color coding.
*golf clap for spitty*

now just change the connectors back to blue tak and your getting a pie in the mail. *warning pie may not be fresh on arrival*
