I had a friend of a colleague join me in the workshop this morning. Neil Sharp is a proper auto electrician. Perhaps surprisingly he wasn't brought-in to fault find. Not yet. I needed to get the battery cables made-up and rather than buy them in and then find that they are all the wrong length, I'd asked Neil to do it on the car. Neil, being a pro, felt that it was a good idea to (a) fit a big fuse and; (b) use 300amp cable for the first leg, on the basis that if I ever engaged the starter and the reverse at the same time it might need it. It looks whopping and is a nightmare to get tidy but who am I to argue?
In theory I should be able to test the bike-side of the loom now; see if the throttle bodies will cycle, the fuel pump will energise etc. I didn't do it yesterday as I had to knock-off early to do some other stuff and then get to dinner with the in-laws.
Just to re-state the point, we are some p-clips and conduit short of a tidy job.
