Turn signals and electronics placement. I've decided to fab a new plate to hold all the electronics. I was trying to conserve sheet metal bc I only have little to use and it was free. But I'd like my wires to look a lot neater an more organized. Also I'm lookin for more protection.from failure due to h2O

The clip on handlebars look great

By fabricating a new plate, you mean like to replace where the stock rear fender was located? Like a shield for the wires right?

As far as the turn signals go, try replacing the stock flasher and see if that works, and then try connecting some rear turn signals just to see if it still flashes both sides when all four turn signals are connected. I'm not a wiring expert, but it could be some kind of overload

Thanks! I really like them too, it gives the little 250r an extremely more aggressive riding position. As for the plate, yes it would be there to serve as the top portion of the rear fender protecting the electronics under the seat. I'll post some pics showing what I mean.

ok cool. Yeah post up some pics. Are you gonna weld the plate to the frame then? That'd look pretty sweet.

Unfortunately, I do not know how to weld yet :/ I will be learning this summer. So my designs are designed to bolt on to the frame. Which also allows me to take them off easier I guess. Post pics in a few hours.

lol I don't know how to weld either

Bolt-on may be even better. Should be stronger than a weld also

Not the best pics. I forgot to snap a few before I left for work today. Innot particularly excited to go backwards on my project but if im going to do it, I'd rather do it right the first time round.

just a question on the project overall, are you planning to make custom fairings or just leave it pretty much naked?

I've seen a few done with the 250's and they always leave the side bare and you can see things like the coolant tank, and in my opinion it just looks weird

This was my original sketch. Obviously I'm heading I a slightly different direction. But the coolant reservoir tank will be custom. And I will make some number plates for the rear to tidy up the subframe. Like I said. Its my first build. And I'm not expecting perfection.

well props to you just for attempting it. I'm too scared to screw up stuff with my bike to do stuff like that lol. So you're obviously better than I am
