I'm working on wiring up my CB750 K5 and I have a few questions. I want to run my headlight on high all the time and do away with all of the control switches for the lights. The safety unit is broken so I need to eliminate it from the wiring. Will this prevent the bike from starting? I want it to be kick start only. I would like the key to turn the lights and all that noise on. Let me know if I need to clarify anything. Thanks for any help you can give me.
That's a fairly customized bit of wiring you're trying to implement. It may be helpful to find a local mechanic to help you with this. Some of us may be able to do it over the internet, but there's too much potential for miscommunication and bad implementation.
That being said, if you WERE to do it on your own, I'd take in small steps: one fix for the headlight, then hardwire the headlight into the ignition somehow. It should be easy enough to disable the starter portion by carefully disassembling the control section that has the starter switch and disconnect one of the wires to the switch. I'd leave it as close as possible in case you want to reconnect it.
Just my 2 cents worth.
