So I set off to install new Yamaha R6 handlebar controls on my CX and thought to myself, why not build a complete custom wire harness with minimum wires needed. The harness would need to:



1. Keyed ignition

2. Push button start

3. Kill switch

4. Turn signals

5. High Beam headlight

6. Brake light



Anyone have any experience with building custom harnesses? I found a few diagrams around the internets but none are specifically for our bikes (as with most cases). So before I go off doing anything drastic I figured I'd get as much information/details/tips from you guys and gals as possible. Here is a minimal harness I found for a CB:

here's the wiring diagram for the GL500 from the FSM.







(edit - just noticed that's for the GL500I. Oh well, same deal. The FSM has the diagrams for the 500I and the 650, but not the standard 500. Must be close enough)

Biggest problem is finding the connectors.

Good thing there is a radio shack near by. I'm thinking this project through before I start. I may keep the original harness for now and just focus on swapping handlebar controls. At this point I want to get the thing on the road!
