Well, I've got the Veypor all hooked up and working. I'll have photos of where all the wiring runs and how to set it up. The Veypor VR2 will be my RPM, speedo, tach, gear indicator, and on-road dyno tool.

I also purchased an LED bar from eurostreetfighter in Florida which should arrive today or tomorrow. I'll be using this to replace all the trouble lights in the stock tach. I just have to sort out which wire goes where. I think I have all but 4 wires sorted. Should be a VERY clean and small setup compared to the stock blob.

I've also purchased a set of Hella FF50 driving lamps for $40 on ebay which I'll be replacing the stock headlamps with. SO, my entire front end is going to be shrunk way down and I might make a custom headlamp fairing to tidy it up. I'll have pics and a report tonight if I get a chance to dig into this project.

Oh, I also bought the HUD for the VR2 so I might give my wife the Sportvue unless someone wants to buy it. External buttons and a billet case for the VR2 as well to complete the kit. I'll get the lap timer next trackday season.

I plan to take procedural photos as well. I just hope I get the damn LED wiring right. Too many unlabeled wires in the wiring diagram.

Well, I got my carbon fiber GSXR fender today in the mail, but still no LED bar... I'm hoping it'll arrive later this afternoon via UPS or tomorrow morning as this is the only thing holding up this project.

www.europeanstreetfighter.com is the company I bought it from. They've got a lot of cool stuff, but their site and billing isn't the greatest.

It mounts to your visor via a sort of clip that you have to apply to the shield. However, you can easily remove the HUD pod from the clip. Suprisingly enough, I haven't had it fly off my helmet, even at 140mph. Only downside to the HUD is that it can and will get water inside, so I'm planning to waterproof mine when it arrives by using some gasket material or something around all the joints.

Ok, got my Motogadget Motosign in the mail today and it is a beautiful piece of German engineering. Very well-sealed black-anodized billet aluminum case with very vivid LED backlit icons. The only downside? The wiring instructions are in German, lol. SO, I'm going to have my father translate the colors for me and start the stock tach wire identifying.

Took off the stock headlights, guages, and mount. I cut the headlight wires about 8" from the ends so I can keep the stock plugs and wiring. Going to work on getting all the wiring done and working tonight, then move onto creating a nice aluminum bracket for the headlights and guages. Should look simple and effective. Headlights are going to be a LOT smaller than stock and stacked on top of each other.

Patience, Padawan! In the meantime read up on the wiring I'm doing in the troubleshooting thread.

I once knew a girl named Patience. I'll bet she brings new meaning to the term 'having patience' nowadays.

Ok, got my waterproof connectors so I'm going to wire it all up tomorrow afternoon. Should look sweet once I get a chance to make the aluminum braket for the headlights and Veypor.

I got this all done last night at 5:30 am. I'll have photos later today! Looks brutal.

Should have the billet case for the VR2, and the external buttons for it on monday. The rest is done though. Also need to get a temp gauge for the water temp. I'm thinking I might be able to wire that into the stock wiring... The only downside of the new headlights is that there is no high beam or passing beam functionality. That I'll have to work on. I'll probably add a fog lamp as my high beam so if I ever get stuck in fog I'll be able to flip back and forth from driving lamps to fog lamp.

Photos on this thread are out of date right now. I'm going to eventually sort through all my project photos and recreate my albums on my website to better group projects and maybe take an updated set of photos when I redo my wiring and misc maintenance over my next break.

Oh, and if people want a how-to, this and t595.net are probably the only places I'll do it. Typing out everything I did will take a long time so I'm going to put that off for later. Holy crap was the wiring a trip to figure out.
