Ok……wiring is definitely not my strong point……..I can tig weld two razor blades together, but can’t solder worth a shit, have always gone to the local hardware store for blister packs of crappy connectors (thank God for britishwiring.com for their complete Land Rover harnesses….they make it easy), and have wiring tools that I think may outdate me……see below.
The Triumph Desert Sled requires a complete “one-off” wiring harness that I’ve been putting off doing for weeks……….no……..months. Battery-less system, Pazon ignition, Boyer Power Box battery eliminator, only one 12V coil, no key, just a kill switch………lots of connections.
The under-tank set up.
I’m not going to give a step-by-step on how to do this…….it’s actually pretty simple. What I want to do here is hopefully help others with a recommendation for a really slick kit that will make wiring up your custom built motorcycle a breeze. A couple of months ago Bike EXIF posted an article on how to wire your custom motorcycle:
It’s a very helpful piece. One of the suppliers recommended in the article is Vintage Connections. They sell everything you need to complete your motorcycle wiring, including high quality tools. I bought the set above that will wire several bikes and their recommended crimping tool, single bike kits are available.
This kit made the Desert Sled harness a piece of cake to construct……….I still had to figure out how to make it all work together, but once that was done I just had to start cutting and crimping. These are super high quality kits that take some of the tediousness out of wiring, and will make you look like a wiring hero!
No more hardware stores, old tools, or fighting with solder for this kid.
