Our E-systems are only half there when they're new, I would'nt mess with it if I didn't have to.

State laws will dictate bare minimum. You need a headlight in all states. Some states don't require turnsignals.
Instrument clusters you don't need if you are going for the clean look. I'd stick with some sort of speedometer though just to avoid tickets though.
If you are eliminating the fuel gauge (with the insturment panel) then of course you will want to know the range of your bike so a speedo/trip in handy.

you can remove the entire harness leave the stator pluged into r/r and r/r onto battery + earth, leave i.c. pickups conected to ic, now take a look at the wiring diagram in the manual, conect the two coil wires (front and rear) from the ic box to the + terninal on there respective coil and a ground wire from - terminal of coil to the frame, and a +feed with a switch to the ign.terminal and retarder terminal (these can be linked) on the ic box, all you need now are wires to triger the starter solinoid and she will start.
now just select what equipment you want to keep on the bike and run descreet wires to each using the wiring diagam in the manual.
