    Im still yet to be convinced it makes a difference. If the OEM cables are in good nic I can't see how it can improve anything. Ok, call me a skeptic, but over the years I've seen a lot of snake oil in the bike trade. Happy to be proven wrong tho.


    Mods (so far): Aprilia Rally Raid bars, bar clamp, seat, rear shock absorber, suspension link, front guard, headlight stone guard and lower chain guard. Replica RR sump guard. Leo Vince exhaust, Catfish Mapping. Mk2 Top fairing, painted to match. MG hand guards. Aprilia Dorso indicators. Honda CBR600 Reg. Autocom Intercom. Aux fuse block. H&B side racks. Trax Evo panniers. Tourfella top box Palmer aux bracket. BMW GPS quick release mount. Cyclops LED spot lights. Anakee 2 Tyres. And probably something else I can't think of right now!

    These cables make a big difference!
    I have fitted them to my Capo and when it starts now, it sounds like a jet poloust engine starting. Totally different and so much quicker to start!

    Good point Andrew, after all they all started OK when new.
    But for me, whilst trying to get all the connectors, reg/rec, starter solenoid etc back to new, I might as well upgrade what I can, at the same time.

    Well my bike has always had starting problems, it always struggled. I fitted the JW cable kit and now the bike fires up no issue swiftly even with a voltage level as low as 11.4 volts.

    Im known well enough here ( been a stranger with life stuff sorry)to call something a snake oil product but the facts are... If your bike struggles to start with low battery type symptoms FIT A JW KIT!

    100% Recommended

    Keep the battery to front cylinder earth add the kit to the rear cylinder.

    I also added one from a starter mount bolt to the Rh frame spare inner ( near the brown connector area)

    My capo simply Runs and performs like a Swiss watch!
    Its Honda reliable rain or shine ( AT LAST)

    Does that mean you're definitely keeping it now Tarks?!

    Mine could probably use a boost in the starting department, mind you the battery is overdue replacement even though the tender keeps it topped up for local stuff. It was just about ok in Wales but if it needed more than three goes to start I'd be knackered I think.

    Is there a link to this kit?

    I've neglected my Capo for the last 2.5years sorry to say, in fact pretty much since changing the chain and sprockets so it's time to give it some love. I'm not usually a fan of messing with the bikes to far from factory but these V twins are pretty power thirsty when starting!

    Thanks Dave,

    What a great find that wiring chart with switchable layers, also found the review for the copper kit here;

    If it's good enough for MB it's good enough for me, I do hope Karl rejoins.

    Cheers

    Re cables, it reminds me of the Oxygen Free Cable BS in the audio world. Anyway, if it feels good......you know the rest.

    And Cheeky Shit Haga!! Well actually, I have bought a new (second hand) bike. Picking up a Triumph Sprint ST 1050 this week. As much as I loved the Caponord dearly, I have been hankering for a sports bike for ages. Couldn't see myself on a Gixxer or R1, so decided to look at Sports Tourers. The Sprints are a good price here, and a bonus the seller was moving overseas, so he was desperate to sell. Got myself a bargain, shall we say. (Honestly, it feels like I raped his wallet!) Only 3k on the clock, in good nick.
    Best part is when CapoKarine and I want to get away, we can load up some panniers and off!!

    Never owned a British bike before, so it's going to be a learning curve.
