yea im going to have to look into that. my brain is hemorrhaging trying to figure it out with the stock buell wiring diagram and the wiring the previous owner did.
the stock wiring diagram sucks.

I'm especially having trouble with the ignition system: can i get rid of the ignition module? do i have to buy a different coil? do i have to by a different key block? i'd like to use as much of what i have as possible since i'm on a tight budget.

thanks to everyone for all the positive comments, definitely helps.

This is the simplified wiring plan one of my forum mates used on his bobber. He ditched the wiring harness altogether.

Thanks, I think that would work perfect. The only question I have is if that will work for the ignition? That diagram shows only 1 wire coming from the points/cam position sensor, I have 3.
And I will show my ignorance here, are "points" and "cam position sensor" the same thing?

I know the cam position sensor is a with 2 notches in it that rotates on the end of the crankshaft. There is a sensor that sends a signal to the ignition module when either of these notches pass by it. Apparently it is a "logic type signal", whatever that means. . .
could I assume that 1 wire is ground, and splice the other 2 and send those to the coil as shown in your friend's diagram?
Also, by removing my ignition module, do I lose anything?

Thanks again for the diagram, and thanks to everyone for any help given!

So I think I've got it figured out. I'm pretty sure I've found a way to use the stock ignition module with some mods to the rest of the wiring harness. I would've preferred a super-simple harness instead of running 10 wires through the back bone, but this should work on my tight budget.

I'm hoping to have all the wiring through the frame this holiday weekend, and then I'm going to put the motor in. I'm not 100% on the colors on the rest of the components (tins, wheels, etc) so I want to see how the motor and frame look together first. Still have to powdercoat the motor mount bracket and screws . . . god there's a lot left do . . .

So figured out the wiring, I think, and put it all through the frame. Got the motor in. In retrospect, I probably should've put the oil tank in first, but too late now.

My compressor is out of commission right now, so no sandblasting or powdercoating until I get that fixed . . . all I have left is powdercoating everything else on the bike . . .

Haha. yea, I didn't really think about that until it was way too late. I'm probably going to do a lot of the rest of the parts in black to offset the red and gold Ironman look!

Thanks!
