Hi J_B

That looks like the 3 circuit option that XRman mentioned. See you at the Desert Raid?

comfort grip or dipped grip

One review I saw recommended the comfort grip rather than the simple dipped grip. They look a bit more bulky though for a tool roll, anyone tried both?

Why did you go for the SH775 kit not the Mosfet kit, was it because the Mosfet is still a shunt rectifier (albeit a good one)? How much bigger is the SH775 series r/r?

Wild guess, but

It's not the screw that holds the pivot for the float in place is it?

This could be crap as I've just realised that 's probably a BST carbie :D

A few more tyre ideas

I like the XCMH for fanging through the bush, but put a Bridgestone ED78 (120/100) on for longer trips, not quite as grippy, but wears really well. I'm also about to try a Starcross HP4 (90/100 x 21)...
