I have some news. I have it in both good and the bad kind.
I went to visit my donor bike today to see if it was using TI ignition and whether or not it actually runs.
Here she is in all of her glory
The bad news first. I have no idea if it runs. I connected up the battery and it had no lights, no ignition, no turn signals, nothing. I checked the main fuse to see if it was mayve blown to find that it didn't exist and instead someone had replaced it with another piece of wire to bridge the gap.
I had a look behind the headlight and I found a rats nest of stripped wires and unplugged things. I had a quick try at plugging it all back together (Because I've done it before) and there are so many missing wires I couldn't make heads nor tails of it without a multi meter (which was back at home).
Pictured is the rats nest. It was worse under the cluster and behind the plastic where there were stripped wires that had things spliced into them. I couldn't get a photo of that it was a little awkward to get the camera in.
The good news. It's TI ignition. I've decided I'm not going to bother trying to fix the wiring to see if I can get this to start I could easily spend as much time chasing electrical gremlins as I could dropping the engine and sticking it into my bike with known working electrics. So that's what I'll do.
While it's off I'll give it a quick going over makes sure she's in reasonable health, IE make sure it won't detonate underneath me.
Unfortunately the outside of engine looks to be in real nasty shape and I can't in good conscience put it on my bike, in that state. So I'll give it a good clean maybe a quick blast with the sand blaster before I give it a good ol' closed door spray and mount it up.
When will this happen? I don't know... It's likely to be a 3-4 weekend job and I want to paint my frame first.
So the current agenda looks like this:
Paint the frame (1 weekend)
Drop donor engine (1/2 weekend)
Clean engine (1 weekend)
Paint engine (1 weekend)
Put engine into bike and return the bike to registerable state (1-2 weekends)
So we're talking 1-2 months before being rego'd. Then the plan from there is to sort out the front end, get the headlights and cluster done. Then the rear end.
