1,2,5,6 and 7 all are very straight forward. Just look at the diagram that comes with a varitronic it pretty much spells it out.

Rear ignition switch, sounds like a Serveta. If yes then it’s a 2 wire switch with 1 in/1out for each wire (Battery and kill wires).


3&4 MC bars and switches? That could be off of anything. Once you have the wiring figured out for the switches that should cover the indicators. The first thing I’d want to know is what did they come off of and who has the schematics?

Not to sound harsh here but you’re building a completely custom and complex wiring system. You’re going to have to make a custom loom and there’s going to be some hours (£) spent of figuring it out.

about £6,2hrs one evening and chopped up 3 old looms for bits and no it wasn't a spanish ignition used a normal one from af.Found the easiest bit was wiring in the SIP stuff that took all of 15 mins.The bike switch was 10 mins once we'd sussed which colour wires were for the indicators,horn and lights.After that everything was easy only pain was when testing the twin led rear light(without the lense on) i was looking directly at it and it near enough blinded me lol.

Right on, those SIP speedos are pretty easy and the rest of it is exactly what I would have done. Dig out the meter and start ringing things out. It just takes time and careful notes.

Sounds like a pretty wild build. Let’s see it!
