In the process of trying to figure out all the wiring! A couple questions hopefully someone can help with...

What wire is in this picture? It's in the front of a met harness
Image


Interested also what are all theses. I think they are part of the gauge just not sure what they do! If someone could direct me someplace that would be awesome!
Image



A whole mess of wires because of the old gauge. Really wish I knew what I could get rid of!
Image


Looks as though the lightbulbs don't have a ground cable they only have one cable so they must be grounded to the base... Also will I need a 552 flasher or what kind of flasher?!?
Image


She's almost already!!!

Couldn't fine the right piece I needed for the gas tank so had to do my own thing....


Image

Finally graduated from College yesterday

Image

Woke up early this morning and got some work in!

Image

It idled great but every time I tried to give it gas it died on me. Finally covered up the intake and it got going and then ran great! Pretty sure I am running pretty lean right now, Going to cut the intake down a bit. I am running a 38-78. which is what I am running on my metro and it runs great!

Sooo I've been super busy lately... just moved into a new place and thankfully now I have my own garage!!!

Image

Finished up my Met which turned out awesome and finished up a couple more projects and finally settled down on the Express... I tried adjusting the Air/Fuel Screw and still no luck... Decided to upjet to a 80 MJ still bogs though... I finally covered this hole...

Image

After I covered it the bike idled right up and i could give it gas and it took off! Can someone tell me what this means lol.

Also I put the plastics and I think i wired everything up. However I blew my 10 fuse so I can't tell yet... Hopefully tomorrow I can get some new fuses... I am so darn close to being done... hopefully...

This summer I couldn't figure what was up with the carb but it worked ok as long as I had this hole plugged basically.

Image

Couldn't decide if I liked the look so I decided to stretch it...

Thanks Jedi!

Just spent some more time looking over the stretch my guy installed and its janky!

All of the weight of the engine and the rider is resting on this part of the engine.

Image

I texted back my mechanic and came up with a new design that will hopefully allow it to sit better. The red would be support for the stretch and the pink would be a shock mount.

hahaha, One of these days I will get them lined up. The order has changed a lot sold a bunch and picked up a couple new ones, Always getting a good deal though. The most I have spent was 1,100 on my Met-Ruck which I got from Conn. I have picked up a ruckus from Indiana for 200, a Ruckus from CO for 150, and a Met II for 190.

Ive been busy with first year of teaching, Been working on a friends Met-ruck and possibly rewiring mine and trying to get the express back to get rewelded....Being winter I am not missing out on any riding. A couple of questions

1. When messing with the wiring I broke off the temp sensor near the spark plug. Is that necessary for the bike to run? Or can i just cut the wire and be done?

2. I am also wondering about switching to an aftermarket Carb, If I do this can i completely cut all of the wires going to the carb and call it good? Trying to get a super clean look. Thanks in advance!
