Well it's been a couple of weeks with some very late nights after work in the garage sorting the electrickery out. Routing & shortening the loom as it was too long, re-wiring the Digi-Speedo & all the gubbings, adding a simple ignition switch, cutting, soldering & joining it all (running & hiding everything inside the body), & then continually testing it, to make sure it all works  Shocked  .  I've finally got to where I'm happy with it, to the point I can now start finishing the build. Now got everything back so can get it finished...Exclamation

Electric box..









Timing marks made..






Ignition Switch drilled & locked in place..






Motor finished & in, Rear Hub & Mudguard on now electrics are sorted..






Front end all tested, will tidy up & start cabling tomorrow...

Your electrical work is the best I've seen. I too went with a simple ignition switch but put mine on the centre beam opposite the steering lock, making it more difficult to simply start and ride away can only be a good thing. Cool Cool

Hi fellas, thanks all. Gaz & Thackers, yes a simple switch should help & having the coil hidden away will help over-ride simply by-passing the switch. Not that exciting, but here are some more Pix of my progress so far...

Wiring & cabling from headset finally taking shape...



Head-set starting to take shape...



Throttle routed & connected...



Clutch & Gear cable outers cut & routed...

Cheers Daz.....It Runs at last cheers  cheers  Got a good run at it today, just gotta dial the timing in, bolt on the final parts & deal with any issues that arise Shocked Shocked Shocked.  The lights flicker at low revs now it's running & on AC, but I can live with that (was spoilt while testing everything via battery!). Will probably switch the horn & brake light over onto the DC feed to help them out...    









Had to add a Capacitor as the Speedo wouldn't work direct from the rectifier, 9V battery supply for the Speedo Clock will be velcroed to the lid..






Back-end..









Front-end..












Headset finished, just got to decide on grips..

looking good, coming together nicely.
did you use a spacer between reed block and cylinder. matched mine up and the ports are way out of line with each other, so made a spacer profiled to match them up, hoping this will work.

Cheers snails, yes this week hopefully - with seat Exclamation .
Cheers Daz, I'm all wired out now that's for sure  Shocked . Your work looks fine to me mate.. Wink
Boozee, not sure what reed-valve your using but I've got a mini atomic on mine. I just matched the reed-block direct to the inlet as there is plenty of meat on the atomic, & then had a spacer made so the Carb would clear the crankcase (TS1 Exhaust Gasket is a perfect template). My Barrel has a 6mm packer underneath as well which conveniently helps with the cable routing to the gear block.
Hope the pix help...

reed valve

Post  boozee on Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:24 pm

hi, ive got the mini atomic as well with a polini carb. i opted out of porting the reed valve manifold (got scared.) Very Happy but seems like the better option. job for the weekend i think. havent needed to space the carb out as the polini carb is a lot smaller, just about get cables around it.

Thanks fellas, John, I'm using a J125 one, because i've taken the seam & "W" bracket out, i didn't have to put a Ding in the cowling. I've made 2 little spacer plates that go between the bottom of the cowling & on top of the casing where they meet to allow for the barrel packer.
Here are some pix of it (nearly) finished. The rack is at the powder-coaters so just got to adjust the cables & dial in the speedo with the wheel circumference to get the correct speedo reading....Oh & then put the dreaded Beam on affraid ....MOT it & then good to go..Shocked
