what are people thinking?.... lamp cord, speaker wire, trailer wiring with plugs and phone cord for wiring... what a freaking mess !!!!! working on a buddies 87 Goldwing that ain't ran in a couple years. no spark issue, bad coils which I had a set sitting around. I had to cut all the funky wiring out just to get to the coils, then figure out what wires I needed to make it run. yeah instead of getting new switches for the stock controls, they just added switches in custom panels on the fairing lol. oh and I don't know anybody that needs a volt meter AND a amp meter. good news is I got it running, bad news is it's pouring gas out of a fuel tube. not sure if it's the hard tube or bad O-rings. so now I have to pull the carbs, figure i'll rebuild them while they're out. after 114,000 miles i'm sure it's do lol

The stuff I lioke best is when it looks like they used hair to wire em up. People use super thin wires and wonder why they have problems. Sad thing is I have seen this on new builds.
