On the brakes, I should be good with the manual or non assisted brakes. The brake lever is set up with more leverage than the normal brake lever, 10:1 vs 7:1 or lower. This was the recommendation and seemed like a good choice. The other reason for manual was just packaging. The more stuff up there on the firewall the more interference with other things like the engine, shock hoop, and all the rest.
, the electric one is interesting, but yep not sure I need to spend more cash there either. But if needed a decent choice. Not sure I want another thing to plum, mount and eire up.
Lots of time with the wire harness diagram last night. I re drew everything and re imagined where things were goin to go. It's been an interesting part of the project and almost as much of a rabbit hole and the 3 link calculator. Hoping I have picked up good tips from all the reading and YouTube videos I have done. Should get that flushed out this morning, get some measurements, then figure out what I don't have and make an order. This will be mostly heat shrink tubing and boots. I don't need more of this than I need. The tubing starts at over 2 bucks a foot to over 8 bucks. Then the boots start at 12 or so. I really don't need a spool of that stuff around, they start at 400 or so. Not that I won't have rolls of wire sitting around, but that is a bit more useful than this very specific heat shrink tubing. Besides the tubing, I need to make sure I have all the connectors as well. I will probably go and plug everything in and mount what ever other sensors that are not mounted now to make sure. Basically one big electrical mock up. Most of the harness may need to wait to be built until I determine the number of wires in the route and the amount of heat shrink needed to do that section. Basically how big will the bundle be and can I slip the heat shrink over the bundle for said shrinkage.
A subset of the heat shrink tubing description
Specially formulated for optimum high-temperature fluid resistance, and long term heat resistance. Resistant to aviation and diesel fuels, hydraulic fluids and lubricating oils.
It is also well suited for the demands of motorsport cable harnesses.
This was a great watch and series of videos on the harness process
In another video he goes on to build a 13K harness, I am not gong there. But it is an interesting rabbit hole, enjoy if you have time and enjoy that kind of stuff.
