    Chic Delta wire connectors

    Where does the white oil level sensor wire go?

    Hi I have rebuilt a Vmax from 1986 and everything works great now, except the start switch won't work. All of the electrical are connected where it belongs except for the white oil level wire, I can't figure out where it's supposed to go. And I can't find my Haynes book either, so any...

    Fuel Hose Wire Clamp

    Hey everybody, quick question. The fuel line that feeds the fuel rail on the carbs has a special wire clamp on it that's unlike any other clamp on the bike. Well, I must have lost part of the clamp when I took the hose off, and now I can't get it to tighten down properly. I'm thinking about...

    late model wire harness

    I need a 1990+ wire harness, the newer, the better. I don't want one that's been modified. If it had the stator wires soldered, that's OK, but would prefer one stock. Thanks.

    ID of wire harness

    Okay, I have a wire harness, how can I ID it? I want to know if it's for the 1985-'89 or the 1990-'07. I know the early has two pick-up coils & the late has one. Anyone got some pics that would show me or can you give me a description of what to look-for? Thanks.

    Replacing front turn signals with two wire assembly? How?

    My How TO: Wire up a VBoost On (stock functioning) and Fully open all the time switch

I enjoy my t-boost switch to activate it at 3000rpm instead of stock ~6000rpm sometimes also, But I REALLY like the always open option- unplugging the connector when the servo motor is at the right position so vboost is deactivated...
