I just recently acquired a 1980 900SSD - it runs well and is mechanically and cosmetically excellent - but the wiring/electrics looks a bit shabby and decidedly tired.
My plan is for a complete rewire and renewal of the tired old electrics and I’m seeking best advice on what components to use…
I’m viewing the wiring system as 3 sub-systems: charging, ignition and lighting etc. I’m looking for the best components for each sub-system:
Charging: New stator, rotor, regulator. - Electrex RO92 rotor, G92 - Generator, RR51 - Regulator Rectifier
Ignition: New digital system. Not sure which either Silent-Hectik http://www.silent-hektik.com/Duc_900SS.htm or elektronik-sachse ZDG3 http://www.elektronik-sachse.de/shopsystem/product_info.php?info=p23_digital-ignition-zdg3–ducati-beveldrive–bosch-.html
Lighting etc.: New central controller without traditional fuses. - MotoGadget M2 http://motogadget.com/de/elektrik/elektronische-steuerbox-m-unit/m-unit/m-unit-digit-tastersteuerung-u-sicherung.html
For the actual wiring, I’d like to bring the connectors up-to-date by using a weatherproof system such as as this: http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.eu/VWP-onlinestore/connectors/multiconnectors.php
Obviously, all the above amounts to a hefty bill - probably not far off £1k by the time the shouting is over.
?Is it worth the trouble - or should I just ride the machine at risk of existing old components failing?
?Is it worth the expense - or should I just replace old dodgy looking wires and make do?
?Opinions on the components - are these be best or just OK and are there any other alternatives?
?Can I treat the electrics as three separate (if linked) sub-systems and replace each as a separate project?
