Here are pictures of the wiring upgrade to my 1100.
I attached closed loop wiring connectors to the 10 guage red positive
wire and the 12 guage black ground wire and attached them to the
battery. Note the harness for the battery tender.
I attached a 30 AMP, 10 guage
in-line blade style fuse to the positive lead using heat shrink over
I will use plastic conduit to cover the red positive lead later.
I left it off for now for clairty.
After installing the 30 AMP fuse
close to the battery, I ran both leads to the front of the bike routing
behind existing electrical harnesses and components for safety.
I used a 6 circuit blade style fuse
block and secured it to an existing harness using plastic ties.
I could have made a bracket to attach it to the frame but will leave it
like it is for now.
Note the relay just to theright of the fuse block.
It controls the 41/2" running lights I just installed on each side of
I used the top right circuit with a 20 AMP fuse for these lights.
To allow me to install more
electrical components I am in the process of gathering components to do
a Poorboy alternator conversion.
I just received his crankshaft pulley, crankshaft bolt and spacer, and
spacers for the radiator.
I will find a suitable alternator locally and make my own brackets
since I have an 1100 and his kit is for a 1200.
