    ZXR250A-B Wiring Diagram Low.jpg This is the Low Res .jpg version, the higher quality .tiff and fully layered .psd files are being uploaded to the sites resources section (DONE :D).

    Below is an example of what you can do with the .psd file, first example shows all of the wires that contact the junction box, the second shows a single wire (the Black/Yellow wire)

    Yes, I'll need another project to be half finished. :) To be honest the R4 is stalled because I have decided to buy a baby mill to do the front wheel myself and the Honda is steaming ahead at breakneck speed (for me).

    Thanks Banner. I/We appreciate you doing this for the greater good. I have the original manual, so I just translate the page/text I need when I'm working on an A bike. Your wiring diagrams are Gold (Aussie slang for priceless). Thanks again. Frank

    Sections 4 and 5 are up...

    sections 6 and 7 are quite small so they should be up soon too.

    Google translate on my phone, using the camera mode i take a picture, it then highlights in grey the characters it sees, swipe over them and it translates for you.

    There is a "live translate" feature but it doesnt work for japanese properly, just gives garbage, much like the OCR japanese text ones, reason is that they look at individual kanji and not the whole sentence...hence it just gives garbage results.

    90-95% of the translations this way are bang on, ive got the C manual open as well, but im using that as a backup for what the translator is saying...so if i get a dodgy word/phrase or on the rare occasion that the grammar is all off i can look at the C manual, but i am "translating" it from the Japanese, im not just copying whats in the C manual.

    Hence why its taking a while, im doing it all from the A manual pretty much line by line :D
