Edit: 5/12/07 updated specs
Edit: 3/30/08 Removing circuit breaker. It is not a reliable disconnect. Instead I'll use the SW200 contactor as the emergency disconnect, and have the clutch cable run to a switch that is in the circuit powering the SW200 contactor coil.
First two pics were recovered by archive team, thanks!
Was going to wait till I had it done, but they made me jump to gun and take a few more pics of the bike as it is now. Now I got to hustle and get this sucker rolling!
Old pic, I think about a year ago. Note messy 12v wiring still hanging from frame *shudder*.
