Hey guys, I really appreciate you taking the time to read this and possibly give me some help. I have a 1979 Honda XL185s that I have rebuilt and am to the point of wiring it up. I picked up the bike for $50 and it came with no wiring. I wanted to do custom anyways. I am converting to 12v with an antigravity 4cell 12v battery, 12v regulator, along with new oem style CDI, new coil, new pulse generator, ITS ALL NEW and fresh. I am not running any lights, all I need is to wire up the ignition and charging system, kickstart only. Problem is my new reg/rec has different colors than oem with no instructions, the coil I have has an extra wire compared to oem, I’m running a simple two wire on/off keyed ignition switch, subtle differences that leave me confused on where to go. Long story shortish, here is a list of what I have with color of each wire Any help you could give as to where to go with what is much appreciated, I know a few are probably obvious and simple but I’ll list them anyways for full coverage. Ignition switch (in-line fuse coming off of red wire, going straight to pos on batt) Black Red Reg/rec 2 yellow Red Black CDI Blk with female blade connector Two green Red/blk Blue/white Blk/white Pulse generator Blue Green Coil Blk/yellow Green Alternator Yellow/white Yellow Pink Red/black
So I have a unique issue that needs input from other fabricators. So I'm designing this cell phone holder to mount on top of my cyclops rally light putting it in more of my line of site just above my trail tech head unit. Now I've come across this problem where I need low profile usb passthrough bulkhead type fitting that doesn't exceed .6 inches. It's a machined piece of aluminum that will be milled out to hold and charge my phone covered with a lexan sealed lid. Now the fittings I'm finding are typically running .818 in size meaning I would need to increase my thickness of material which I'm desperately trying to avoid.
Here's some pics of the double decker bike storage rack I made for my two 'kid' bikes. (TTR90 and BW80) (and yes, they really are for my kids) I wanted/needed to free up some space in garage, and be able to freely move them around as needed. Plus, the upper one is at a good height for service. Designed on Google Sketchup, fab'd and MIG welded at home. All 2" square tubing, except the sliding sleeve, which is 2.25" square. The lower legs and 'spine' are 3/16 wall thickness. The 'upper' level is 0.090" and 0.110" Plywood is 3/4". Caster wheels are 1/2-13 threaded direct into the lower legs. Pully system is 1Ton, worm gear hand crank boat trailer winch from HF. Approx 26" x 52" foot print, 6foot total height. Probably weighs 60lbs. I use my cordless drill to raise and lower the platform. Can use hand crank as backup. I load tested it with my fat butt, and Im 6'6" 230lbs. Enjoy the pics.
Hey everyone, I’m new to my drz 400 and have now spent a couple hundred dollars getting it to where I want it to be. Now I’m at the point where the only thing I need is a exhaust with a good flow, and was wondering if it would be possible to fabricate my own header and pipe , and simply attach the stock muffler on the end ? Thanks!
