....as opposed to starting the bike naked! :shock:

Hi All,
I'm hopefully closing the door on my restoration project over the next week and my thoughts are starting to turn to getting the machine running again. I was therefore wondering if it's possible to fire up the bike in it's naked condition and if so can someone remind me of all the electronic-ery that might prevent this from happening. Obviously I need fuel and a functional battery, keys etc. and other stuff that comes to mind are, side stand up, brake engaged.
But I was wondering if there are any other lockouts that may kick in as a result of the machine being plastic-less.
For example does the headlight unit need to be connected, does the seat need to be in position or are there any other things that I should watch out for. (I will have the dash connceted)

Thanks in advance.
Fran

I've never fired up my 400 with the plastic off but I have fired up my 650 that way. You should be able to hook up everything except the iights with the body work off. The lights will not be a probllem. It will run just fine without them. You will have to mount enough body work to hook up the dash and the battery, it won't run without those.

Hi All,
Just to let you know that I did manage to fire up the naked bike.
The dash was plugged in, battery strapped to the frame and it fired up no problem.
(The dash being the only bit of plastic fitted)
Of course the side stand was up and a brake lever engaged.
Fran.
