z650B1 – Wiring

This is Part 3 in our refresh of a very tired 1977 kz650B1

The wiring harness was removed as part of the disassembly and then laid out to workout the extent of the damage. It had virtually no connectors and numerous other wires added in. The original fuse holder was replaced with a blade type, which is not a bad thing as blade fuses are easy to get. but with no connectors and flaky wiring a lot of work was going to be needed.


The switchgear shells came up nicely after powder coating but the lettering is gone and needs to be redone.
