I see from the video that you have gone with a twin carb setup. Can you show some more pics?

12v Power comes from the circuit on the new control unit which i drew in purple. There's no kill switch wires and no wht/grn as in the dyna instructions.

Do i connect the red wire (from dyna s) to the purple wire (12v from motogadget) and the other 2 contacts on the coil all together? I don't understand the path of the electricity.

Looks pretty good to me. Just some thoughts..... Are you going to have any safety interlocks for starting? Clutch/ Neutral light? Also is the key going to kill power out to the coils through the M Unit? If I read this right Solenoid Terminal 1 will be hot all the time and according to your little note 5 and 6 will as well. Is there any issue with having the Reg /Rec getting power from Term 6, 24/7/365 or should that be switched? I believe in the OEM Setup the rectifier has a hot lead all the time but the regulator is switched. I do not know if the Ricks Reg/Rec is setup up for that?

that's a good question about the constant power going to the reg/rec i had not thought about that but it looks correct from the diagram provided by revival cycles

https://revivalcycles.com/blogs/technic ... ring-guide

the diagram i posted is just what is needed to start the engine. will add the lights later as i go along.
