Thanks mike
I paid quite a lot for mine and doing all that work to the lever (thanks for the help with that)
I do have a boss but needed for other bikes
Seeing it took since 2011 to track one down and the chances  of just buying another one is approximately nil I think I will just keep it
175 & 200 Talk / 175 tire sizes/sources (or tyre for those other guys)
« Last post by TangoZulu on Today at 12:35:13 PM »
I was wondering if anyone has experimented with larger tire sizes for the 175 DT/HS. Maybe a 2.75/18 on the front and 3.00/18 rear? Why? Ummm, better traction, looks cooler? Just curious. Also, where are people sourcing tires here in the US. I see Heidenau makes the correct sizes (2.50/18F — 2.75/18R) in a "racing" tire. Dime City Cycles sells them for a premium. Other brands/sources?

A couple years back I sold a nos right shift kick start lever for $250 and then a few months later I sold a nos package that included ALL the other pieces needed to do the conversion for $300.

Adjust your price to take in consideration the missing pieces, those needing a re-chrome and then adjust for inflation/deflation/whims of the market and voila..... you have the worth!  :o

Maybe someone  could shed some light on how much a conversion kit would be worth cheers
350 Talk / Re: 350 GTR/GTO Wiring Questions

I agree with Brian's assessment and like his ideas for where to use the smaller/larger gauge wire on a harness.  I did notice that the wire gauge on the original harness was smaller than I thought, yet the insulation cover was thicker.  It amazes me that the original harness has 20g wire in some places, as Mike noted.  It looks more like the wiring on the dynamo is smaller than I thought.

Well done guys!

    Hi Mike,
                Will be needing a couple of harnesses myself shortly and have been looking at options.

       With a 5amp alternator and 5 or 6 amp/hr battery, the electrical system is marginal as confirmed by CL-100. Totting up the electrical load with everything on gives a max wire loading in the order of 7-8 amps, hence the 10amp fuse. In theory you could wire it all in 20awg or 0.5mm2  !!

    To keep the voltage drops down and beef up the system, I will use 16g for the main wires, IE, All black/red wires to the battery, earth wires  and the blue switched live supply. Everything else can be wired in 17/18g to give a useful upgrade. Some of the minor circuits IE 3w bulbs, neutral switch etc could be 20g. This compares well with previous replies

   I would have no qualms about using the current thinwall wires, they use a harder pvc insulation and should provide good abrasion resistance. The harness is well protected with sleeving, grommets etc. Just make sure none of the unprotected wires are rubbing against metal parts or protect with stick-on foam sheet.

   Did find the more sites I looked at, the more confused I became. Everyone has different ideas or use various wire designations and max current or wattage ratings, so put this table together :-

                AWG                    Area mm2                        Strands/dia                            Amps

                20                             0.5                                 16/0.20                             11
                18                             0.75                                24/0.20                            14

                17                             1.0                          14/0.30 or 32/0.20                    16

                16                             1.5                                  21/0.30                            21   

            May not be an exact conversion between imperial/metric but near enough.                     
         Hope this helps,     Brian.
