    Default HOW TO: Used Chopper Wiring and Re-Wiring Video Series

    Hey there.

    A few years ago I posted 3 videos on my YouTube channel how I wired up my full ironhead chop build.

    That thread is here: https://www.chopcult.com/forum/showt...ronhead+wiring

    But it was recorded AFTER I had the bike done.
    I've received a ton of feedback, questions, and helped a lot of people out through those videos.
    I knew that if I ever had the chance again, I would make a new series of videos based on a bit of a different angle.

    Let's say you found that awesome FB Marketplace buy. Used bike. Looks good in the little pics.
    Even bought it. Got it home. But wanna customize it just a tad.
    As soon as you do poke a little bit... you quickly find a rats nest of wiring in the thing.
    All of a sudden reality hits. Wiring fear sets in. Crap hits the fan. And you don't know where to start.

    How on earth do you undo all the junk that generations of previous owners have built into the wiring of your poor bike?

    This video series tries to help with just that problem.

    I picked up a used mutt shovelhead this year. And it need all kinds of attention. Wiring was just one piece of the pie.

    In the following posts, I'll share links to the 12 (or so) videos that I've produced to help cover the topic of "How to: Used chopper wiring and re-wiring". I go over first evaluation, dissecting the existing, tools of the trade, wiring diagram creation on the spot, basic tips on wiring, final connections, and what to look for along the way.

    Note:
    This is NOT the be-all-end-all of wiring.
    The build is a super simple kick only, alternator, Dyna S, dual plug setup.
    No turn signals. No frills. Basic.
    I'm also not an electrical engineer. And no matter what... what you build is your responsibility.
    That said - These specs have worked safely for me. And I hope it's of some help as a foundation for you of what to do and what not to do... to ultimately work out wiring your own bike on your own.

    Cheers!

    Here goes...

    And finally for now... Part #12.
    Stay tuned... once I do an engine tuneup I'll probably take another video of everything running and riding.
    Cheers!
