When I did it I had the whole bike apart and the engine "out" of the frame. I tucked the wiring inside the frame for a cleaner look, and its easier to understand where the firings line up with the front fairing kinda of zip tied in place. Hope that helps

Getting ready to hit the welders tomorrow! so to ramp up getting the new shock mount ready to go, i decided yesterday to make some templates out of cardboard. This way i could figure out the curvature of the SSSA.

The shock mount is going to be welded to the top. But because of where the center of the actual shock is in comparison to the top of the SSSA, I needed to be careful as there isn't much room for error. The goal was to keep the shock in the same position as the OEM swingarm.

After i made the cardboard cutouts, i bought a sheet of foam core, and made a couple more templates using that. The foam-core is about 1/8th, and is roughly the same width as the aluminum that will be used. My garage was friggen' cold tonight, so even marking the SSSA for where the plates needed welding was a pain. Even my scroll saw that i was using to cut the foam-core snapped on me.

Once i get it back from the welders, I will take some shots. Hope everything works out!

Technically you can relocate the wiring behind the frame, there is enough slack to do that, although in order to do it you'll need to remove the wiring harness which requires engine drop. Or you can remove the mounting clips and once you have the fairings on you can just snugg it behind the fairing.

Thanks! Thats what i thought. The electrical seems like it has a bit of slack, i should be able to do something with it once the weather warms up a bit.

engine drop isn't too hard either, take 2hrs and you should have the engine low enough to get the wiring out and moved over.

I dont think im mechanically prepared to drop the engine yet. something of that nature kinda makes me nervous.

there really isnt much to it, remove radiator, remove headers + exhaust, place jacks under engine, strap frame, unscrew bolts, lower engine... not much, 2 hrs of work... if you're doing SSSA you can drop the engine, sssa is more difficult

I had an issue with my air box but u might not. The one thing I learned from my mistakes is label everything that comes off anything your taking apart. Everythings goes together much easier that way. Ziploc bags for the win!

I didn't drop my engine at all when I did my swap...After I got that rats nest of wiring off of the stock front stay I just looped it through...Took about 5 minutes to get it all through and another 5 or so to tie it up

Just a bit of advice. Before you start mocking up the fairings, mount the headlight. The headlight takes up a good bit of room and can interfere with things.
