Sanded & feathered the filler, and went over the whole seat unit with 120, 240, 400 grit then shot three layers of primer...

Next is 400 wet sanding, stopping, sanding then off to the pro painter for finishing
Will be accompanied by fairings & tank for touch ups

A great piece of kit; heavy duty and tidy. Had one on my last bike.
I use the unswitched circuit for a battery tender. One of the switched circuits is for his (Jim @ Eastern Beaver) H4 upgrade loom.
The other switched circuit is reserved for a future install of a rego. plate flip gizmo, a must these days with so many cages having dash cams; overtake on double lines flip your plate; speed camera and toll camera - flip, flip, flip.

3 Circuit

Cheers.

Thanks Muddy.

The credit for that nice paint job really oughta go to VHT though. The spray nozzles they use on their rattle cans work so well that they're darn near foolproof. They're super easy to use and they lay up paint so smooth and evenly that you almost couldn't screw up your paint work even if you tried.

I gotta remember that - I can get runs in anything. More runs than the Aussie cricket team playing New Zealand.

Discovered the stopper I bought didnt like my primer... or vice versa... more sanding, & filling done, last coat of primer & final wet sanding tomorrow before dropping off at the pro.

Inspected the frame for crack progression, (I knew is was cracked in the usual places) but discovered theyve gone too far, in fact the left side is cracked about half the way round the tube...! started prepping the cracks with a Dremmel.... Need to remove some more stuff to get access for welding... the question now is, total strip, weld and powder coat or quick fix... spring is coming fast!!!

Got a call from K-Tech - forks are done already, they only got them yesterday..!

Finished wiring both the Eastern Beaver H4 upgrade loom and the 3CircuitSolution loom. The headlight is so bright now it's the difference btwn night and day

If anyone is considering a 3CS here's a tip; order a custom made one IE with pos. & neg. wires long enough to reach the under seat storage.
I should have done so but didn't think of it until too late. The problem is that there's just not enough room behind the battery, or beside it, to comfortably fit the kit. And then there's the heat from the vertical cylinder.
After a bit of trial and error I settled on locating the fusebox and relay under the tank, to the side of the vertical head, on the l/h/s and the three connectors cable tied to the lower rear of the battery.

But regardless, they are both great kits.

Warning lights and instrument lights upgraded to LEDs.
Waiting on delivery of a thermistor, oil pressure sensor, some header springs, and an exhaust stud and it will be ready to go

Cheers.

Good tips mate - Im thinking of getting a kit - was toying with just building in a couple of relays myself though - Id also like to wire it so that the dipped stays on with the full beam but not sure thats such a good idea with an H4... Being in the same bulb it might overheat - must go google a bit
ETA - Yupp - H4s get shagged keeping both filaments on, oh well... probably be good enough with the wiring upgrade then


Good luck getting back on the road!
