Jim: Next time try B&E Electronics for the Molex supplies, they have a Warehouse in Calgary and one in Saskatoon, way faster and cheaper as well. DonG
I just buy mine from Greg Bender. <shrug>
Now why didn't I think of that! I just never thought of looking for individual components from Greg.
A bag of replacement molex pins and connectors arrived today, I got them on Ebay in the UK, pretty fast shippingPulling the switches apart over and over left the pins ragged and it was just easier to cut the ends off and re-crimp new pins and fit new connectorsI bought the removal and insertion tools as wellThese are the crimpers that are used, they have a ridge in the recess that folds he pin tabs over the insulation and wireNew pins crimped onOld connectors cut off, new ends fittedThese new connectors are just like the originalsAll back in one piece, almost like Greg Bender assembled it in the first placeThis supplier has all the Guzzi style connectors for the Tonti era, two pin, three pin, etc.
Jim, I noticed earlier in the thread that the headlight rim stuck out past the fairing about an inch or so. In your final photos the headlight rim is about flush with the fairing. The stock US sealed headlight sticks out. The European non-sealed headlight sits flush. What did you do to make it flush?Stephen Hill
The European headlight is also smaller in diameter. MG Cycle sells a reproduction fiberglass faring with the smaller diameter headlight opening, this is what I mounted on the 77 Le Mans. I then found a matching diameter all black headlight on UK Ebay to fit the opening. In my opinion the US version with the headlight sticking out past the fairing looks like a Minion from the movie Despicable Me!
The previous owner of my 1976 LeMans modified the bracket that mounts the fairing, so the headlight does not stick out. Looks fine, but it makes adjusting the headlight a bit tricky. Is there another headlight rim and or reflector that fits into the stock bucket and uses the stock fairing?Stephen Hill
I intentionally put the lego switch on my 850-T so you know I have serious mental problems. It took a lot of work tracing wires and emails to Greg but I finally figured it out. It's oddly almost as satisfying to sort out Italian electrics as it is to get an engine running for the first time.
It's oddly almost as satisfying to sort out Italian electrics as it is to get an engine running for the first time.True. But I think itís easier to get an engine running for the 1st time than getting the Guzi electionics working !! I do share your sense of satisfaction with beating a gremlin.
Legos are quite a bit better than what Jim's dealing with.
Nice project looking good, doing a California to Cafe project and wanted to ask if you could help me out with a couple of measurements so I can get my ride height set... What is the fork length top to center of the axel and the rear shock length, if you could share those numbers it would be a huge help. Going to start posting a thread once I start getting things back together in the mock up phase.
