i say figure out what you really need..remove excess then route them where you think you can hide them and relocate...shorten/lengthen....solder....heat shrink....

I am possibly the untidiest person every when it comes to electrics, my soldering is ok but nothing i've ever done electrical has failed yet, but check out the mess behind my screen, when i do the remote ignition and starter i'll attempt to sort it all out, specialy as i got the rear electrics under the seat unit looking quite nice. my opinion is if nobody can see it on the move then fuck it as long as it works

Yeah, I don't intend to use any kind of screen, so I'm unsure of what mine is going to look like. hehe.

hey, im in the middle of fightering my gsxr, and this is the same spot im at right now, hiding the wiring, i took and extended all the wires to my fuse box so i can put it under my seat, then i took the tank off, and i have to extend my guage wires a little bit, but then i will be able to run all of my wires under my tank, and they will just come out up front and go right to the headlight and guages, i can post some pics when im done, hopefully it will be tonight

ok, heres a series of pics i just took to try to show you guys what i have done so far, these first 2 are just showing where i added wire, also how i got my fuse box inside my frame, cause the wires that run to the fusebox on a 01-03gsxrs are outside the frame, so you have to cut them and re-wire them on the inside to get the fuse box to the inside of the frame, or maybe you could move the motor a bit, also these still need the heatwrap put back on them, the red wires are the ones i added

heres some pics where you can see what i did with the wires, i put all the connectors between the airbox and the frame, and ran the main harness over the airbox, the tank will still sit on there just fine, also you can see i dont have my headlight or guages hooked up yet, im going to extend those wires also so i can keep the connectors where they are, it makes it easier to take all the heat wrap off before trying to do this stuff, cause then you can see what goes where easier

these pics show the finished product, (of the wiring at least, im far from finished, lol) nothing is bolted down in these pics, just kinda mocked it up so i could get some pics of how it will look, i think it looks pretty good, and i know my garage is a mess, maybe some day, if i ever get to ride this bike again, ill clean the garage to, haha, what do you guys think?

it really didnt take that long, the cutting and soldering and taping took about 2 hours, but i also didnt know how to solder when i started (and if you took the tape off, you would notice i never got very good at it) i would say with removing the tank, seat, and all the tape and heat shield, then everything else, it could easily be done and put back together in 3 to 4 hours or so, it took me longer cause i spent a long time looking at it wondering how i was gonna do it

You should see how long it takes me to sit and look at something and figure out how im gonna do it. Look at the pictures of my bike and youll realise why it takes me so long....lol. I just sit and look at it and im like damn...ive got a headache im gonna go take a nap. One thing that has influenced my thinking was smoking pot....i always got the most awesome ideas when i smoked but other than that it never did anything to me....hence the reason i quit.

Pot gives me a lot of good ideas but they're never complete, and I have to figure out something later.

Like when pot told me to buy this huge oven I have... Eventually I'll figure out what it's for :D
