Once again, sorry if this sounds really stupid, but how do I know if it has an immobiliser or not?Huh? My bike is a 2000 900Sie if anyone can help.

The immobilizer showed up in 2002 on all FI Monsters (S4 all the way down to the 620)

First test fit of the painted cowl! Needs a slight adjustment on the mounting holes, it's shifted ever so slightly in one direction. Overall though couldn't be much happier. Now if that damn connector would get here I can finish this up...

Here are some pictures to tide you over.

Looks great!!   waytogo

Maybe a little trim around the bottom of the windscreen to keep both it and the light housings from getting scratched by vibrations?

Haha already trying to track down some rubber stripping Smiley If you have a source don't be shy about it  waytogo Looking for something rubbery, not the plastic door trim you find at the auto stores.

I've used rubber tubing from the lab, but not for protecting visible surfaces.

If I find anything, I'll post up.

Snag a piece of silicone tubing off ebay intended for vacuum lines.  Slit it in half Smiley

Bike looks good!

Tapping my nerdy younger days I picked up a piece of neoprene fuel line from nitromethane R/C cars at my local Hobby Works (www.hobbyworks.com). Should work like a charm and hold up nicely to UV and vibration.

Fuel tubing worked great, didn't snap any shots last night as it was dark in the garage and snow outside this morning. Pics pending.

Good news! Tyco connector showed up (12 days from Germany for reference). Don't have the bike at the office to triple check but it looks like the right one to me.





Should be able to get working on the harness this week in the evenings, pictures will show up as progress is made.

The pins are pretty tiny and close together, this will test my soldering abilities.

Here's the harness schematic as it sits right now... 99% sure everything here is correct, if you see any errors let me know.

THIS SCHEMATIC IS WRONG. 99% my ass lol. Page 6 has the correct schematic for fuel injected bikes.

I gotta say that diagram inspires me to make a similar one for the Motogadget... Or better yet, a generic one.

The downside is I have an older (01 monster) and without first hand experience with the newer wiring, I'm hesitant.

I can't see it being THAT different from the Trailtech one, should be relatively easy to transfer the design.
