dude they will cost a bomb if you want to purchase it from the A.S.S., also they may not be avaliable as a whole set!
just try and get the main components fron the A.S.S., and the minor ones outside, also try and find out if unicorn's or cbz-xtreme's few components match with your bike.

well when you say the whole eletrical set up, do you mean the coil, alternator, start-upmotor, the regulators, relays, the speedo setup the bulbs and wires or just a few? (please include if i have missed any!)

or is it just a few please give complete details so that we can help you better, like what went wrong and what are the things that went in for a toss?

the start up motor for a 150cc bike like uni or cbz-xtreme is like 5k bucks
the digital speedo setup is like 4500-5k bucks
the bulbs alone will cost you like 500
the wiring should cost you any where between 1500-2000 depending on the brand and the pins and other consumables included!
the relays should be 500-1000bucks
the coil and alternator i have no idea!
and the labour!

Any specific purpose?
The ZMA has the best electricals in Indian bikes. I guess you are planning for something else. Let us know.

Then change the wiring harness and the switches if necessary. And unless your wiring harness has lots cut n tape jobs and loose/cut n taped connections you needn't change the harness.

Why do you want to touch the coils? If at all you want to do something to the coil youcan get it rewound as per stock or for more power. You dont have to change the coils.

As far as I know, the ctock electrical are very fine for the job. So Unless you want to do something wild, the stock electricals are the best one on any Indian vehicle.
E.g Try comparing the power put out by the OE ZMA magneto with any other bike.

well yes changing the cable and just the harnesser of a good brand should not cost you like more than 3000 including the labor charges, well if you are going for the A.S.S. spare wiring kit then i dont know the cost could be more or could be less by like 1000 bucks!
