20 minute short track fuel tank. Factory fuel pump and injectors should be plenty for the 1287. Nice and clean.

Hey Henry, why such a loose PTH?
At 030thou my 1427 pistons were ever so slightly hitting the cylinder head. Also my method is flawed. Even though I had the block sinched down and I had the piston rock in the bore taken up, I think once the head is torqued down properly, the PTH will close up slightly.
When the piston shines itself on the head, it can cause the wrist pin to hit the pin bore of the piston and gall. I think when the engine is cold it will have more piston rock than when the piston has expanded from heat. So tight PTH requires patience and skill...two things I don’t have...lol

Deleted the ignition switch, the headlight wiring and the left hand switch assembly and wiring.
Pulled the wiring for the dash indicator lights and fuel level too.

Cleaned up what won’t be used in the tail. Ecu lays nice in the zx10 battery box so that was easy.
moving the rectifier. Have some fiberglass sheet that I cut a piece for a sturdy light mount. The fairing mount has that extra tang for the oem overflow. So the mount hole at the front bolts down to the fairing bracket and the fiberglass easily supports the rear of the rectifier.

Deutsch connectors are really nice. Makes easy work of wires.

The wiring for the stator and rectifier is odd. When you strip off the tape, four 12gage wires butt into two 14gage wires. Seems weird looking at it.
I didn’t change anything, just shortened everything up. I wonder why it’s configured this way.
