Question Re-wiring Entire Electrical System

Hello all,

I will make this as brief as possible.....so I recently bought an 05' rr (5 months ago) and have had various problems with it ranging from engine problems (low compression in all 4 cylinders) and putting $3,500 to get a whole new engine case....to multiple electrical problems. These electrical problems seem to keep popping up when I least expect them (well i guess you don't really expect for these things to happen). Apparently the guy before me did a terrible job wiring stuff because there are wires hanging out all over the place. He has it so that I cannot switch my headlights from low to high....and it is always on high. This isn't that much of a problem but rather more annoying. Most recently the bike woundn't start because some ground wires got loose. A few months back I had a licensed Honda mechanic in Columbus (Northeast Honda I believe) check out my bike and he said that "there shouldn't be all these wires going all over the place, they should be tucked in."
To be plain and simple, I wondered what you guys think about at the end of this season, or possibly even now, bringing my bike to a certified Honda place and telling them to re-wire the entire bike. I would assume that this could take quite a bit of time, but it would relieve my headaches. Additionally, it would make me less anxious everytime I go to turn on my bike and pray that it starts. I was wondering on whether or not you guys think this is a good solution and how much you think a procedure like this would cost....thx again and I apologize for being long winded!

Buy a manual and a wiring harness. It's not that hard with the stock harness. Only so many plugs and connections. Remove what he did and replace with a new harness. Done. Dealer is going to cost a bunch of $$$$ to do this. T

you dont really need to be mechanically inclined to do it. all you need is a few wrenches.

Hey ! Great news!

I have an 05 with similar issues. I get an occassional
stall. Then when I try to fire it up I get all lights on for check,
fuel pump primes, engine fires but then won't stay running after
releasing the starter switch. Usually it coincides with the headlights
not working.

What harness did you replace?
the large wiring harness from the gas tank back, or the smaller
one gas tank and forward?
