replacing 750gt dash w/ 750 sport - where to hide the wires?

Post by dalozer » Sat Jul 01, 2006 11:34 am

I just am sick of my crappy 750gt plastic dash cracking so I have a sport instrument panel (thx steve) to replace it with - my question is since the GT has a bunch more idiot lights on it -
where to hide the wiring from them (just stuff them in headlight??)
also i noticed that on the 750gt the generator ("GEN"-THOSE CRAFTY ITALIANS!) has a fuse in line - so i take it that i probaly have to rewire that with some kinda inline fuse to complete the circuit to get the bike to start and run just cannot just eletrical tape them off and stuff them in the headlight assembly??
any response form other gt'ers would be great!
thx!!

headlight bucket is the place.....but don't use gooey elect tape, use some heat-shrink tubing and do it right.

I hid mine in the headlight, in the gauge pods, and under the dash itself.

That's not a fuse. It is the GEN bulb. I believe it is called a "festoon" bulb.
