07 R6: How to remove extra plugs from front wireing harness on for track only bike

Like the title says, this is how you remove all those extra plugs from the front wiring harness if you are going track only. My bike is a 2007 R6 so I'm not sure how similar this is to other bikes. I will not be riding my R6 on the street anymore. When I switch to track plastics (hopefully next week) I don't want all the extra plugs taking up room and looking ugly. What I have done takes all the light and relay plugs out of the wiring harness so that the only thing that remains is the plug to the gauge cluster and the sensor in the air tube. That is all you need on a track bike. This set up will allow you to keep the head light fuse in order to keep the back lights on the gauge cluster in case you want that.

This is what you have before.


And this is what you end up with.


I'm sure there are more wires that are not used but I removed everything required to get rid of the extra plugs. I'm not super good at reading electric diagrams so I only did the minimum required to remove the extra plugs. This is only for someone going to a track body that has no intention to EVER going back to a street bike. The process could be reversed but it would just be better to get a new front wiring harness.

First, you have to cut open the entire wiring harness. Don't hold back. Take out all the tape.

Second, there are five wires that need to be removed from the clear wiring harness plug. See the picture below


Third, there is a large red/yellow wire that comes from the clear plug. Close to the plug, this wire splits into two red/yellow wires and one blue wire. Cut the two red/yellow wires so it looks like the picture.


Lastly, cut out the solid dark green wire and the black/yellow wire from the back of the gauge cluster plug. You don't need these. Just tape them up after you cut them. Tape up the wiring harness and you are done.


This is the mess that was removed.


Check out the before and after picture. If you think it is worth the cutting and no turning back then do it. It is easy. I didn't see this anywhere else on the forum so I thought I would write it up here. If it has been done before I couldn't find it. It took me several hours but only because I tested the gauge after cutting every wire to make sure I didn't cut out something necessary.

I see one for sale on ebay for $15. Would it really be worth selling and then having to make one from scratch? I like having the factory plugs, although I'm sure you could make something else work. I'm just not that good.

In that case I'd do it the way you did. I thought a full wiring harness would be worth a lot more than that.

Excellent write up! Correct me if I'm wrong, but you could also pull the dark brown wire from the clear plug? If I'm reading the schematic correctly, that wire is the left turn signal idicator light, so it isn't necessary as well.

Not expensive at all. I had a relay fail and it was cheaper to get a complete wire harness that included the needed relay than the relay itself. Weird how that worked out...
