Default Wiring Harness Idea...

I get really tired of my wiring harness on my 73 CB350 and was thinking about making one of canvas and velcro. It's not weather-proof but it's clean looking and makes the wiring very accessible. I don't plan on trying to drive my bike underwater anytime soon. what do you think? People say they don't think it's a good idea but I haven't heard any good reason yet.

go to your local auto parts store and pick up some wire loom material.they usually sell it by the foot or maybe a local auto repair will have some.the material i am talking about is a corragated plastic tube that is slit up one side its entire length.just tuck you're wires into it and the wrap with black tape to protect the wires.its not 100% waterproof but it keeps everything together and out of the way,looks good too.

thats what would be the safer route but i want something that is very easy to have access too. i have a fixer upper and who knows when im gonna have to fix that thing on the side of the road. i guess i dont trust my bike to not fail on me yet.

the wire loom material is very accessable,you don't have to tape the entire length,just evey foot or so.the material is stiff enough to keep the wires in place for the most part by itself,the tape just keeps the errant wire from sneaking out,easy to pull apart at the seam and check your wiring or pull the offending wire out without having all your other wiring spread out.the auto parts store will also have mounting tabs to make a really nice installation.i looked the last time i was at advance auto parts and a 20ft roll was about 5.00 dollars

I have built up several wiring harnesses using industrial sleeveing, every time the harnesses came out looking great.



Wire Sleeve, Braided Polyester, 1/2" x 18", Flex-Guard FPE

It's much more flexible than the plastic stuff you get at the car parts store.
