1. Awesome. I'll cut those back to the ECU
2. Is the alarm system tied into the ignition or an immobilize at all? For example if I traced all those wires back to the ECU and cut them?
3. No heat shielding. Basically just to get rid of things that aren't needed.

Never had to deal with the alarm wiring, probably a question for @MacBandit

A tiny bit of plastic isn't going to get in the way or affect the weight in any measurable way. If you did cut it, I'd be concerned about water (if you race in the rain) or other road junk/rubber getting flung up into your battery tray. After all the crazy weight-saving sht I've done to my bike, I still have a stock battery tray.

My suggestions are only practical:
Keyless gas cap
Woodcraft ignition bypass; having to remember to take the bike keys to the track sux. Forgetting to take them sux more.
My self and other track riders have all had piss poor life from batteries. Not idea why trackbike uses little power. And the bike lives on a battery tender. Still every 18 months it starts running like crap and eventually on 2 cylinders. A fresh battery cures it.
I relocated the rectifier from behind the engine to up on an aluminum bracked i mounted Off the ram air duct. The goal is to run cooler and less chance of failure. And if it does fail it is stupid easy to disconnect and swap out.

None of these are sexy but they are serve the purpose of keeping me on track with minimal effort.

Are those pics taken at the ridge? Asks the guy from houston.. looks familiar.

- Keyless gas cap is ready to go
- Woodcraft ingition bypass has been installed
- I have a lightweight battery that has worked good so far
- I do believe I need to relocate the rectifier, I'll have to recheck

Thank you for the suggestions! and yes those pictures were taking at the Ridge. Awesome track.

A little update. I spent some time at Paul's shop and with his help we got the Attack triples and rear link installed. He also showed me how to change the fork oil (we did fork seals while we were in there) and shock oil.

After I got home i went to work on installing the R6 Brakes and Brembo Master

Sanding down the rotors


Installed with correct spacers


Brembo Z04 brake pads


Brembo 19x20 master
[/url]

Fresh fluid and a nice short run


Next in line is a red sub frame and continuing to work on the wiring harness.

That last pic reminded me that the "7" on your master isn't torque spec, it's how many clicks from full out I had it set to.

Good to know, I've already adjusted for my liking.

Hello all your restless quarantine folk! I made a bit of progress on the Daytona this weekend. Fitted the read subframe, tank and superbike tail. Swapped the fuel pump and installed the new keyless gas cap. Still working on the wiring harness. I have a track day in 10 days so at this point i feel like my strategy is if anything isnt plugged in, its good to cut. Thoughts?

Superbike seat. 517 isn't my race number as I'm still a track rider but its my birthday (May 17) for picture sakes


New 1/4 gas cap from UKRS

Don't cut yet - tape it up, tape it off. It's a lot easier to plug in some forgotten item while the harness is still intact! Give it a weekend or three, make sure nothing's gone missing.

That's the best advice I've seen on here in a while... Being British there is just way too many things that can and might go wrong. Tape is cheap and easy, and will ensure that your not forced to buy a whole new wiring harness when you get a little happy with the knife...
