Re: The Black Knight...Wired up and Charging properly

Back to the bike..

The original harness was toast, so had sparckmoto.com build me a fresh custom.

Complete w LED's, turn flasher and R/R.  Everything went perfectly.

Until I found the old stator had a bad leg, got a new emgo.  and ALL GOOD

Charging 13.5vdc at idle.












Cut old reflector and riveted it to new so the original would fit in stock bucket w LED.








Charging properly at idle

I would love to check out the original stator if you dont want ir as i have only ever seen them fail due to mechanical damage.

Well done, another one on the road 👍. The Supertrap sounds great and especially on the overrun.

Thanks so much everyone!!! 

And just a note to keep things real. 

My plan is to have fun with her 'as is' this summer. 

Collecting parts needed for the proper restoration next winter.

Making a few final tweaks.

Fit a British Bike fairing.  I dont recall BSA or Triumph maybe.





And a new right side cover.
