Work on the Paso has been progressing slowly, I just have not had much time to update the posts, so here is what I did last night:
I was very worried about the wiring since it has an aftermarket ignition switch and even cut off the ring around it on the top triple clamp. Then there's the fact, it has no factory dash. Just an aluminum plate with foam glued on, a tachometer and oil temp gauge. And a row of idiot lights (unlabeled). But so far aside from the dash, the original harness is intact and unmolested in good condition.
As for the instrument problems, I found this unit from Trail Tech. It has speedo, tach, odo, ambient, engine temps, shift lights, warning lights and indicators lights, all customizable. And surprisingly affordable...cheaper than trying to ebay a bunch of old Paso crap that likely doesn't work anyway. The company was helpful getting me the info I needed to ensure I could adapt it, but would not ship it to me in Italy. Kind of a pisser, but Amazon to the rescue! Cool piece of kit which I hope works as good as it sounds on paper.
I knocked out a simple Stainless bracket to incorporate the ignition switch and the new dash. The angle looks about right, but once I get the tank back on it and can sit properly I have room to put a break in the bracket and angle it upwards if needed. But so far looks like it will be just fine…I have not put any indicators lights in yet. I am almost done with rewiring the bike. Still need to sort the mess that was at the back of the dash.
