Hi,

Do you have a general reference of the 24 wires you had to extend. I am in the process of removing the tape but I am scared to cut until I have this planned out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Er no, sorry. It was a while ago now.

Basically you have to cut the wires to the fuse box and the relays that are mounted on the left fairing, under the infill panel. Then extend them back to the airbox lid. I just put a piece of tape with the same number on, on either side of the wire where I cut it so I knew which wires to connect to which. Just make sure you don't end up using the same number on two different wires like I did!

As long as you are methodical and take your time you should be OK. I'd never done this before and I managed it.

Good luck and make sure you post up your build for us to follow.

Well the final of the MCN/Carole Nash Built in Britain came and went on Saturday 16 February 2013. Unfortunately I didn't make one of the final three with my Daytona Street. It was won by the drag bike GSX-R, which annoyingly I thought might win. However I did award myself a "booby prize" as you can see below.

The bike which should have won was Shaun's Barbarian as he fabricated the whole bike in his garage, with the exception of the engine and forks, but he's going to make his own forks.

I'm not kidding he made the entire bike himself: wheels, frame, swing arm, etc. Even made his own master cylinders. Awesome piece of engineering and I like the looks too. Read his build here if that kind of thing interests you: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/shaun.w...Progress2.html

So it just leaves me to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for me. I really appreciate it and I wouldn't have got to the final without you.
