I'm trying to keep things tidy with the wiring its a bit of a nightmare to keep it neat with things still happening with the build so it will all be tidied up at the end.

Running the wiring under the tank.

It looks like this inside the headlight.
Image

I found a new Can-am ignition switch in my collection of bits so went with that. I couldn't think where else to put it.
Image

I could find the red wire. In the end i found it folded back taped up in the loom for the switch. Very odd.
Image

Cable ties are temporary it should all look neater in the end.
Image

Looks a mess. I have a feeling this is "Mark 1" wiring loom.
Image

Space is tight trying to get it all to fit in is a pain.

The Daytona digital speedo complicates things a little more. Extra wirings and finding somewhere to put the pickup for the speedo. I have been thinking about this quite a lot. Do i put it on the front wheel back wheel or front sprocket. I'm going for the rear wheel.

Putting it about here. I will make an adjustable mounting for it. Or do it go for the easy route on the front wheel i just don't like the idea of running the the cable down the brake hose.
