Thanks to some of you who have helped by offering your spare parts, we've been making good progress on the project for Carlos:

So I bought a project last night!

Most of the larger items needed have been sorted, or in the process of working out details. We're amazed at the willingness to help that's come from some of you. When your parts arrive, I'll be sure to post pictures and show our progress as it develops.

We were up till 5am yesterday buying parts such as mildly tweaked seat frame & headlight from Ebay UK. It's exciting to see the project move forward.

Here is the list of the primary remaining items we're still short of in case anybody has any of these, let me know. Paypal is ready. :)

(1). Top Fairing Cowl (Can be damaged or cracked, as long as it's repairable).
(2). Instrumentation Harness (Sub Harness Front).
(3). Gear shift Arm & rubber dust cover.
(4). Rear Tail cover assembly.
(5). Rear tail cover lock assembly.
(6). Headlight mount insert washers (x3), headlight bulb sockets (x2), sealing diaphragms (x2)

Other items like seat gasket, bolts, etc. we'll just buy new from Honda or Stainless fairing Probolt set. No point in trying to find the small stuff used.

Looking forward to getting all the parts now in transit to Japan and beginning to make this project take shape. Any help with the above much appreciated.

Thanks for the quick responses from nobody & Jondog9.

Looks as if we'll have the solo seat cowl assembly, lock & instrument harness sorted. :)

Still after these if anybody has them sitting around please:

(1). Top Fairing Cowl (Can be damaged or cracked, as long as it's repairable).
(2). Gear shift Arm & rubber dust cover.
(3). Headlight mount insert washers (x3), headlight bulb sockets (x2), sealing diaphragms (x2)

I'm just posting on the off-chance someone has got some of these. If not available used, then we'll order these along with other small parts from Honda next week. :)

I have a somewhat repaired and sanded upper fairing if you're interested.
Thanks, if you have a picture that would be great. The repair would need to be invisible from the back though.

PM me if you'd like - picture would be useful please.

Hi buddy, no, it's no 14 on the schematic. It's listed there as a seal. (Shows $3.31).
Not sure if nobody included this with what he's sending.
Thanks for the pm.
I checked the parts fiche for the seal, if it is what I think it is it is a small strip of foam (looks like weather stripping) seated on the inner lip of the cowl cover.

It is attached to the cowl and like the two others I have to compare them too they are very thin and wear very quick.
So yes I guess I am sending it but for $3.31 I would replace it or spend a couple of minutes and cut out some self adhering weather stripping to fit because that's what it looks like to me.

This is what I think #14 is on the fiche...please correct me if I'm wrong.

Or do what I did and not even notice it...;)

On mine, I have a rubber seal that fits all the way around the perimeter of the hole in the tail cowl and protects against vibration and scratching by the lid assembly. If it were cut as a section it would look U shaped.

The seal is part no 14 on the schematic. I'll order one new from Honda.

It's not very good, as it always comes off a bit, but just about holds in place with very thin (glue only, basically) double sided tape. Better than not having one though.

YtseJam, thanks for the sticky! :)

Ah, bugger... :(
The part number for US models seems to be different than Carlos' 2005 (EK) model.

HARNESS, FR. SUB WIRE
32102-MCF-640

US model on Ron Ayers says:

32102-MCF-670

No idea what the difference is, but I'll take a look at the connectors later and see if I think it could work. What do the white connectors attach to, any idea? Running lights perhaps?

We also have a US speedometer, which is in MPH not Km/h, but I have a printed circuit board from a Japanese model (km/h) with only 60km on I found on Yahoo auctions.

This harness you have might still work, so I'll check later. Supposed to be starting teaching my daughter to read today so I'd best get to it.

I don't know what the square grey two prong connector right next to the large connector that plugs into the front harness is.
The rest are turn signals, baro, and instrument panal.
Could it be for SP1 temp switch that goes to the radiator?
If that's what it is, just seal it off...?...

I went and had a poke around my bike. The European model with switch to turn on headlights on & off (Mine) has different connectors to the (EK) 2005 model's - whose headlights cannot be switched off, same as N. American models...

It looks to me as if the connectors to the main front harness on your's are the right ones for the project bike's.

I took some pictures to show the connectors on the harness. Don't know what that 2 prong connector is specifically for, but your's matches the bike's. One of the pictures should show colour codes. I expect they'll match with your's.

The white single (green/?) wire connector with white connector junction beside each indicator is I'm guessing - for running lights, I don't know? I'd expect there to be a -ve wire too if so but I only see one wire to each on your harness. Anyway, that may be the only difference between the EK model's and your's.
Wouldn't be difficult to resolve that so the running lights on the top of each headlight work, although it's not even tested in Shaken and isn't really necessary - so not too bothered there.

If the colour codes match on the main block (Which would be expected), I think we could use your Harness jondog. :)

Here are the pictures:

Grey plug next to the large connector is the BARO sensor plug's other end. It fits in the this Grey plug



Europe models don't have running lights inside the turning lights so no third wire on the orange and blue plug.
The other big 3 wire Grey connector near the dash's connector, is for the BARO sensor.
And the white ones are for the position lighting above the headlights :)
