Re: Confessions of a first time MB builder
It doesn't look as though I need to add anything to wiring advice. It's about covered here.
But I will mention that the mistake you made is one that most, maybe all, of us have made.
When you first put your bike together and you're dying to test her out, it's very easy to just 'tack' the wiring together with the intent of fastening it down more properly a bit later. Then, before you know it, you've got short or open circuits. And you feel like a bit of a fool.
Yup! Been there, done that.
