I would be interesting in seeing a pin-out of exactly how you hooked-up you Acewell to the existing harness wires.

Plug wire look nice, but you might want some insulating boots over those crimpped ends if that is what they are.

More progress today, and picked up the tank FINALLY!

As far as the pin out for the acewell. What I have so far is standard switch/power/ground to the one harness, and so far oil and neutral are direct hookups to their respective wires. Will let you know how the turn signals turn out... so far things have been a little finicky.

I think I may have enough done to start the girl up tomorrow. I'm moving soon, and so unfortunately this newly completed bike might be in storage for some weeks while I figure out how to ship it to argentina!?

Wish I had more time, I'd redo the wiring harness from scratch.

Here are some pics:

A great day has arrived.

Yesterday was epic.

Pretty much finished the build. Got the wiring done, put in fluids, cleaned up the brakes. Zip tied on a bit of cardboard to stand in for the seat and fired her up.

Had a few small issues to resolve:
  • Bad tip sensor… chucked it.
  • Gas out of carbs… hit with hammer.

Sounds great, and rides awesome. There is some ignition issue or something that has cropped up, but I managed to get a good long first ride in. Man, building something up and then riding it around is amazing.

Seat, grips should arrive soon. Woo!

Of course pics:





All the pictures are here, and there is a vid of it running: https://plus.google.com/photos/10977...95463240538049

It looks like you have done that bike proud! I never saw a bike that big in Argentina. How is that going to work out?

Hi Robert,
partially dismantled in a sturdy wooden crate? If it's part of a family move talk to the shipper about crating requirements. My last big move was a professional job and I had an interesting discussion with the shipper.
We can't take paint. Or welding gas tanks. Or that propane tank.
That propane tank has no valve and has been empty for a decade.
Nevertheless
That's f**king stupid.
No, that's only dumb, what's f**king stupid is we can't take your fire extinguisher on a vehicle that's mandated to carry one.
And that was a move within Canada.
So don't tell lies but be careful what you say.
Steam rinse the gas tank but don't mention gasolene
Refer to "vehicle parts", not "motorcycle"
And have a great time in Argentina.

I can't believe I forgot to post the final result!

It's been done for a couple of months now, unfortunately I only got to ride her for 2 weeks before moving to Argentina. I'll be back for her though

Looks great! Did you get that Acewell working completely? If so, please post in our product evaluations, and possibly include a pin-out of wiring.

Oh yeah. I got everything working but the gas sensor, I have the tattered papers around somewhere I'll try to dig them up and post info about it.

Also have a project page on my website now.
