Back at it tonight... This may be my problem. I'll report back once I get a resistor or ignition switch.

--------------

Series a 100 ohm ¼ watt 5% resistor between the orange w/ yellow stripe and the black w/ white stripe. Series a key or toggle switch between the red and the orange or just splice together. Splice the grey and brown together.

Thanks to the guys at TT

Edit: apparently it's anti theft to prevent hot wiring

Well, no luck selling this, so I decided to register it and get it back in action. I'll update here periodically. Feel free to post suggestions or tips where you see fit.

First on the list is to remove the engine and repair and strengthen the frame. Any suggestions on where or how to brace?

Next is to work on proper engine mounts.

Currently the carb doesn't clear the backbone and sits at an angle. Also, there's little to no room for a filter(pod). Mini pod?

Maybe this is why no one else has ever tried it?? :rofl:

Have you considered trying to redesign the carb to head manifold? Either that or fire up your metal saw and don't stop cutting until you have enough clearance... and then fire up your welder and don't stop adding metal until you've replaced all of the strength lost in the first operation.

Is the 650 frame just taller in this area than the 350?

I think the 650 is taller and longer...
It was quite a job to squeeze the engine out... wasn't much wiggle room.

Wouldn't it be easier to buy a used bike with a trashed motor and swap yours in? This frankenbike will never be right unless you have awesome welding, fabrication and integration skills.

The bad idea bike keeps on rolling!
Got the frame back from a local weldor. Fitted the forks and front wheel back on tonight. Back wheel and engine scheduled for tomorrow. Still need a bar across the top for the top engine mount. Then electrical and the rest. Will update later.

glad you do not give up the fight! :2_thumbsup:
however, in order for the bike to come alive the right way you must beef up the electrics to withstand the life-starting lighting zap of that proper stormy night :dirol:
