A collection of projects
Tach - Drag Specialities
We added the tach after installing the cruise control.
|Here's the tach.||The resisters and diodes for the Tachometer adapter. The leads for the diaodes are softer than the resister's so they are twisted around the resisters and then soldered.||Here's the critical step. The ends of the diodes which have the band are kept separate and go to each of the coils. The non-banded ends are connection together and to a common lead going to the tach.||Here everything is soldered and the first pass of heat shrink.|
|The second pass of heat shrink is applied.||The two blue Posi-Taps connect the tach adapter to the negative side of each of the coils. On this installation, there are two wires attached to the one coil: one for the tach and the other the cruise control.|
Lowers - Buck's
The first non-Yamaha add-on to the bike - day's after it came home
|Here's the right lower installed.||Be careful to make sure that you move the bracket and lower as far forward as possible before turning the handle bars fully in each direction. If not, you might put a crease in the tank!|
