So it's time to get this bike on the road since I've been blowing it off for something like twelve years or so. I already did the headlight assembly last fall and now it's time for the back half.
I picked up two license bolts that have LED's built in and a license plate frame that has a running light and brake light in the top and bottom of it.
I picked up a Hitachi style connector so I can have a quality plug that will last..
Looks a lot like a OEM set up on a modern bike. you do need a special crimp tool and I've had one of these for a while. Here's the web site that offers connectors and tools, electricalconnection.com
Me not knowing that I'm have a picture taken of me from my nine year old. Yeah, I always kind of look pissed off.
The garage troll always has to get in the pictures!! :)
The new plate assembly, the top plate bolts are the LED's for the plate lights.
Nice wiring mess with tons of heat shrink. I used small zip-ties to hold all the wiring down to the back of the plate bracket. Nothing worse than a sloppy wiring job==NOT on my bikes!!
I have ten wires that need to be reduced down to three and it has to be a clean lasting job.
Down to three and only needing one large tube of heat shrink to tidy it up.
other half on and ready to go.
RD400 warm-up on the choke.
Running as clean as a two stroke can! :)
