those pipes put the "racer" part in cafe racer. nice looking work on the bike and the welds on those pipes are perfect looking (to me but I can't weld for shit, so I'm always impressed with good looking work)

Update May 18

Recently bought a compressor, so I got a small blasting kit

The kit's not very good for big stuff but works just fine on these calipers

Most likely going to paint them black

Anyone know what this relay is for?

On the wiring diagram for a monster (I am using a monster loom) there are 2 relays

General relay (yellow one) and indicator/flasher relay (large black one)

However my loom has three relays and we don't know what the third one is for

The top one on this picture



It has 3 x red/black and 1 x grey wires

bottom one on this picture



Top one this picture



Can't find anyone that know what it's for

Any of you guys have an idea what the heck is going on?

Finally got the bike to the zorst man

Really pleased with the outcome


Pipes look great! I think you've got that angle spot on. Are you going to polish them? Would be nice to show off those welds. Do the whole system if you are.

The engine looks awesome in matt/satin black. Satin black on the wheels too maybe? (Might look a bit meaner than gloss) What colour are you going to paint the frame? There's a lot of red going in all sorts of different angles (frame, swingarm spring) if you keep the swingarm red. Satin back for that too perhaps? Or you could polish it and then it would go with the pipes.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks for your ideas buddy

I am going to leave the colours as they are and concentrate on getting the project finished

Once the bike is up and running I can stand back and see what I have created, and modify it as I go along

I have already spent a long time humming and hawing about colours etc

Just get it finished and see what needs changing then

I think the relay you are asking for identification is the starter relay on the monster loom.

I have from time to time life my M750 seat up to disconnect and reconnect that relay when the bike wouldn't start (no noise or anything) but lights came up. If its a OEM relay I suggest to replace it bc it's bad!
