The links slide over a teflon tube and fit together.

I'm using an uncoated, polished, stainless inner cable, since I need to solder on the cable end fittings.

Getting close to wiring up the bike.

Unfortunately, I know very little about wiring. Will definitely need some help.

I bought this used stator. Hope it wasn't a mistake. The blue wire that goes to the neutral light switch is messed up.

Looks like the blue wire is burned where it goes through that notch in the trans cover. About 1/4" of the wire housing is gone, and the copper wire is broken there (under the blue tape). All of the blue wire in the photo is hardened. Feels like it will snap if I try to bend it.



Plan is to replace the entire blue wire. First problem is, I have no idea what size the wire is. Guessing 22 gauge. Better get some kind of chart or sizing tool.

The grommet that holds the wire in the notch is NLA (p/n 90480-01148-00). Will have to figure out another way.

I wouldn't say comfortable, but I've soldered a few (literally) wires before.

Also need to buy a soldering pot or crucible for soldering the fittings onto my custom cables. Never used one before. Still looking at soldering techniques for the cables.

Eh? I'm an El-Tech by training and never even heard of a benchtop version! Thought they only did that in big factories.

I've done cable ends with a regular pencil iron. I made a brass fitting from a wood screw, drilled the cable hole, countersunk on one side. Pull the cable through, snip it a tad long, birdcage it, solder the big end. Think of making a rope ladder, but more precise.

Got the cable adjusters from Germany. Only place I could find the right size adjusters in stainless. I previously made some titanium adjusters (for the carb cables), but trying not to make one-off parts, if I don't have to. These stainless adjusters are so drilled out, they're very light. And stainless can go into the nitriding oven.

Mocked up the YPVS cable housings. Looks good and custom. Will throw on some blue anodized nuts for a good match.

Found this chart, and will take a look at the blue wire construction, and see how it works.

soldering is kinda like welding, you are heating up the pieces of metal you are soldering so the solder melts and adheres to them. melting them solder onto them just results in some bullshit. just watch a YouTube video and you'll get it. the key is to buy a half decent pen with the proper tips for your application, and get shit JUST got enough to solder. the better the soldering iron/pen, the faster you can heat the metal up, the less induction you get traveling up the metal, and fucking up your Christmas.

also, clean the tip when it's hot. I use sand paper. clean tips mean fast heating. put tip in and spin fast, then wipe off with a rag. that's my style. probably better ways.
