Oh, and it also goes to the kill switch, where it hits B/W .....definitely a way to stop ignition then ..... ????

Looks to me like if you leave the black wires open-circuit your kill switch will stop working. You could take B/Y from the CDI to the kill switch directly , to restore it's function , and bypass the ignition switch , then you can go to 4 wires ?

I didn't go to Hogwarts School of Automotive Electrics, do not trust me !

Le Cap !??

DAMMIT  I deleted my bookmark to BST Bible Thread ! Sorry man, quick search doesn't find it either. Sh^t !

Ha ha ha world is too small I ran into Le Cap at Craig's this morning, now I've met the dude, he's even taller than in his sig.

Volroom is on school holidays so I guess he's not too close to a 'puter now. Dammit he got the deal of a lifetime, hope to see him here soon

I had to talk him down from a diversion , he nearly went to the DR800 side of the Force.

Yep! Hammerite black, I have some high temp black for the header, dunno if I should DIY the rust off with wire brush and drill or sandblast before painting it?

Thinking of cold galving my spokes

PIMP away man , if you are gonna violate , do it with passion !  :headbang:

Can't help with these other dudes looking for enjin's or spares bikes , but if you are really a serious restorer , have a look at Craigs List over in California. I've been helping a friend get a VS800 block from over there.

Its not impossible to import a block, but you have to know the dance.

The key thing is to get an Import Permit.

Perhaps you guys looking for DR600/650 engines can just keep tabs on this thread ...what I can do is summarise the procedure for maximum efficiency based on this VS800 learning curve ?? You'll need to wait a while.

It's time we home fixer's got wise and stopped living like we were still in international isolation , perhaps it's time some old bastard like me summarised import and banking procedures for the dummy, but first I'd have to un-dummy myself and gather the facts !

This is a very small world and there is no reason why we should limit our used parts shopping to our own soil.
