    Well, I have been doing all the final placement of the wires and all the shrink tubing on all JST connectors, so far this is what it looks like, Oh and my 40 amp re-settable breaker took a crap on me so I found this bad boy at a local boat parts supplier, had to mover some stuff around but I think it works well![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    If it wasn't for the fault light option I got with my ESC I would have never known that the breaker was bad until it died on the road somewhere! Money well spent! :whoop::old2:[/QUOTE]



    Here's a few shots of the wiring along the lower frame rail, just about done now all I need is my right hand pcb to get here and it will be done!:chopper:

    This was the hardest one to route since it's in between the shocks and oil lines, took a little time but worked out well!:old2:

    "If it wasn't for the fault light option I got with my ESC" What are you reffering too? I thought all the TH modules are the same?

    The fault light option with the ESC system uses the low oil light on the speedo for double duty, low oil light or charging system problem. Pretty damn kool if you ask me:old2:

    I read about it, must be piggy backed through the wiring, since all the TH modules are the same. (I think)?

    [​IMG]I just finished installing the faulty pcb right hand switch out last night, took it out for a ride and everything works perfectly! [​IMG]This is an awesome system and would recommend it to everyone! And yes that fault light is bad ass! It is so nice knowing as I am riding along that my charging system is working properly! Peace of mind for sure, and only for an additional $75! Money very well spent for sure! I am so glad to be rid of my EHC and not be wondering when it's gonna crap out on me, this is the best upgrade that I have done yet![​IMG]

    The ESC and RIP both use the TH-MHC as the control module, they just add all the connectors to plug and play to the bike.

    :whoop:I don't know what the hell is different or why it runs better but the damn thing is bad ass! I was at a light last night and this dude next to me looks at me and says, "That bike is beautiful and sounds unbelievable!" that was nice to hear instead of "hey do you need some help!" Lol! :oldlaugh: Also it starts like never before! When I hit the run/start button now it spins the motor easily! I am not using a tender at all and as soon as it fires up the fault light slowly goes out telling me all is good! I love that option, knowing that my charging system is good is pricless!:whoop: Now when I through my leg over my bike and turn the key on I don't have a doubt that it's gonna fire up and work perfectly! Another issue is not worrying about my headlight failing at night, the ESC comes with a complete new harness all the way to the headlight and has a ceramic plug in for the headlight! All in all I would recommend this system to you all, having the peace of mind knowing it's not gonna crap out on you is awesome!:old2: I am leaving for Street Vibrations this morning and have no doubt it's gonna run great!:chopper::cheers:
