I'm getting the front end back together on a 1974 v90. The fork was one thing but stuffing all that wiring and those cables back in the headset was intense.

Now, I'm looking at the inside of the headset and wondering if the loom and cables are in the correct position. It was trashed when I got it so I'm guessing a little here...

Main question is how all the bits of loom pass through the throttle side of the headset. To go under or over the front break cable?

Looks good. You might put a zip tie under the speedometer nut instead of the blue painters tape (red arrow), and I believe there should be a black wire/ground wire that grounds the headset on the nut (blue arrow).

Oh yes, I'll do that next. I just want to make sure it looked all good before I reinstalled that electrical birds nest.

I don't think it matters. The cable goes in the cutouts of the tubes. And wires for the switch go outside the tubes tucked out of the way.
