Hey guys, new to the forum, hope it is ok to ask a question. I have a 2001 converting to track only bike. The wiring harness is a mess. Motor runs, but there are so many splices and poor connections, or bypassed connections, that I would like to start fresh with a new harness. But, I would really like a trimmed down race mode harness with only the bare bones to run the bike. I found a few threads on this, and looked at the wiring diagrams, but mine is so crappy, I would like to start with either a fresh one, or hopefully find a website that sells these harnesses. I tried to find it on my own, but I arrived here to ask for help.

I did find a great contact that trims down peoples harness for a small fee to exactly what I want, but he only does the service for the R6.

Any help is appreciated.

a 2001 r1 harness should be pretty bare bones right out the box.

I would assume it would be the headlights, brake light and turn signals that you would only need to get rid of.

The headlight wiring assembly and everything in it minus the main lead that powers the speedo/tach. I have eliminated some of it already, (kickstand, exhaust servo, a few others), but I am left with a giant mess of wires, still. After some rerouting, I developed a dead short that blows the signal fuse and now I have no speedo. So, would really like to purchase a stripped down harness, or if there is a solid thread on how to modify mine. I am decent with wiring, but when I started down this path I learned quickly how the inputs to the CDI really can make or break how and if the bike runs at all, so I am a little gunshy.
