XS650: Simplified Electrics   Leave a comment

There are distinct advantages to doing this. Original looms had circuits, relays, safety devices, checkers and stuff that did their job back then.

Time, vibration, water, oxygen and irregular maintenance have all compounded producing electrical systems, already lacking good fusing, that will provide you with endless hours of frustration.

I rip them all out. Can’t be bothered with the drama. Make them new. Myself. With central blade fuse box. 1 for each circuit. I get a new system. Custom designed for whatever I need. Easily modified. New cables. New connections. Soldered. Crimped. Isolated. And I know what I have. Diagnosis become heaps easier.

First time you’ll freak. Second time you’ll wonder why.

Here is one of the best. An all rounder. If you can look at this and understand it you will know more about original electrical systems than most. It is elegant in its simplicity. Plug and play. Except for some peripherals it’s all there. Thanxs Jayel.

 

jayel - all original models - points/tci ignition - electronic/analogue charging - starter

Jayel put this together, earns a beer from me…everything really except indicators…for original charging systems and ignition

Simple to adapt for pretty much anything.

 

simplified wiring

doesn’t get much simpler than this…no battery, runs capacitor, permanent magnet alternator, twin coil, pamco, no real need for the key though-could put a second kill switch somewhere

The only thing simpler is total loss.

Good earth connections. Check your brushes. Maintain your battery. Fuses.

Note that if installing coated bars you may have problems starting. Check your kill switch earth connection. No earth. No go.

Enjoy.
