Looking sharp Trek, very tidy. Out of interest, what kind of money does a new wiring harness set you back?

Thanks bro!  Yeah you need to talk w Sonrier aka Matt aka Sparckmoto aka Vintageconnections.  As I imagine its dependent upon your needs.

And I made two for Piglet and Cherry Bomb.  I was in no mood to do this one myself, at the time.  So very well worth every penny.

No doubt. Can’t imagine what kind of a headwreck making a harness would be. The one I pulled from my current 750 build looks to be in ok shape, but if a closer inspection reveals some nasties then good to know there’s a guy I can call...

Matt does awesome work.  He has levels from parts, to part harnesses to full factory spec or custom. I like his FB11 fuse block. You can start with that and thenold harness and clean the wiring up really well. Ive been running it 2 seasons on the GL and its solid.

The one I did for Eric is a stock replica. 99% of what we do is usually custom work, for custom builds. If you need a stock replica at something we can do, but we usually charge hourly rate on those. I do the custom work more often, so it's actually easier to estimate.

I didn't like the 4into1 kits.

So, I got the O-rings and float valves from Honda.



Found the rings on the fuel feed tubes were flattened and kind of hard. 

None were broken, but several did break when I removed them.



Fresh on the right, Originals on left were flattened.



Long as the carbs were out of the way I went ahead and retorqued head bolts and re-set valve tappets.

I was surprised it required about an 1/8th turn more to hit the 14.5ftlbs again.  On every head bolt.

Excited to get this set up. 

Powered exhaust vent.  So I can run and tune bike during these winter months.

I only got about $150 invested in this.  and I got enough flex tube to add a "Y" and a second muffler collector for dual exhaust when I need it.

I bought the 4into1 kits for my 750’s carbs but yet to install them. I went with Randakk’s kit for my last 750 - not cheap by any means but highly rated. How long before your 4into1 kit crapped out?
