Remove junction box and re-wire

I'm sick and tired of the electrical system on my bike. Im looking to remove the junction box and re-wire the whole electrical system. I would ideally like to wire the bike up with as little components as is necessary for proper operation.

What is done for the removal of the junction box? Has anyone done a write-up on this?

For those of you who have done this; any tips?

I've done it..... I believe Slim has also....in fact I believe he has posted electrical drawings in the forum....

Tips:
AGM Battery
MOSFET R/R direct to battery
Solder stator wires (toss the bullet connectors)
Add relay to power ignition coils direct from battery
Add relay To power horn direct from battery
Add relay to power Headlight direct from battery (you can wire the low beam right through the NC contacts and use the high/low switch to energize the relay for high beam... full power to headlight and if the relay fails, you still got low beam)
you will also need a fan relay
convert to HID headlight
convert lights to LED's
replace stock horn with air horn

I did exactly as Dariv did... to add, I swapped out the stock ignition control module, coils, ignition switch, hand controls, and a heck of a lot more.
