Several changes

Hi Chaps,

during the past few days I have done some changes.
Eliminate protectors and add new indicators.
Indicator brackets from Rizoma
Indicators are by Koso with Ducati wire adapters.
Totally plug and play.

When removing protectors you need bar end caps.
Bar end caps by Desmoworld Germany.

Frame plugs installed also by Desmoworld.

JMT red battery installed.

More changes to come soon.

Have fun regards Stephan

Would you mind taking a good picture of how the indicator brackets are mounted?

Paulm900,

Just curious- what didn't you like about the handguards?

Zippy, you are right.
0,75 mm2 wire = 10A. I will change back to 10A.

Last question: you kept factory high beam fuse slot but upgraded to 15A? Want to be sure you didn't mean you added a stand-alone fuse in the empty slot in forward fuse box.

Nice job. Love bi-xenon projector, too.
Gatdammit.
Zippy are right about not changing the fuse.
0,75 mm2 wire = 10A. Maybe it will work with the 10A fuse. Try.

Handguards

Hi,

They did interfere with my hands on the side.
I like riding with my hands right at the end of the bar.
Also for me they look to bulky on a slim bike like the Hyper.
But all is reversable if I should change my mind.

Cheers Stephan

naked hand levers

now i know why ducati tried to hide the levers with handguards, they don't look good naked... like an overgrown appendage now that the hand levers are exposed, you might want to consider changing them to sexier after market ones

That clutch lever looks pretty much like the one my first bike had forty years ago, come to think of it, it's the same as those fitted to 6 of the 7 bikes currently in the shed, the exception being the Monster with it's adjustable item. On the up side, the design is well proven as functional.

I spent a lot of time doing a clean wiring job.
Spliced into highbeam and ground just aft of headlamp junction plug at back of lamp assembly.
They worked as intended. I then coated jumper connections in hot glue and taped area up good.
Upon finishing, I tried the lamps one last time and nothing. The display was dead and none of the lights worked and I assumed I had drained the battery from running the lights so much. Oh, the start-up servo movement wouldn't fully cycle either.
Trickle charged the battery overnight. Display/lights still dead. Turns out I had blown the display fuse (#2, Fwd Fuse Box).
Replaced fuse (10A) and everything works except lamps. They have so much protection in the circuit board I can't imagine I smoked them, especially off the battery.

Was it the glue? I know it's an insulator but all connections were in place and sound, even soldered lamp wires before adding to splicer. I have to buy a new meter before testing circuits.
