I have a barn fresh trike that has been stripped (before I got it) down to nothing. I was wondering if anyone has a simple wiring diagram on what goes where? I need head lights, tailights, brake, blinker, horn and Im sure im missing a few things. Got any idea's or is their a place I can go to figure out the wiring? Thanks, Steve

Also the easiest way to approach it is one circuit at a time. Some people get intimidated looking at everything together. Doing one circuit at a time makes it easy, then all of a sudden it is done.

Do you have any suggestions on where the best place to put the fuse box? I considered near the engine compartment just so I could have access to it if I went down on the road. Its small, holds 6 circuits and is about 4" X 2". I'm kinda holding back on putting it up front near the instrument panel because of road funk...What do ya think???
