Wiring Loom/Harness

Hi Guys,

After spending lots of time and money on my Vulcan 750 its now come to this!

There is a major short in the wiring loom causeing the bike to try and start on its own or a complete and total loss of electrical power.

whoever had the bike before me has arsed up the loom no end by cutting in to it and putting in "scotchblocks".

So,, has anyone any tips for putting in a full new loom, I have already managed to get one from the US it should be here in the uk in the next few weeks

And yes, I already heard that one "scrap the F***er", lol

The wiring harness shouldn't be too difficult to swap out. Tank will need to come off as it runs under the tank, over the airbox. Other than that just trace all leads and plan before actually doing anything. Easy peezy.
