It's 30 years experience made me dislike stripping insulation and soldering. If I wanted to use that method I would lift the tank and find the wires near to the ZFE so the joints and cables would be...

I made one for myself out of a spare bulb connector I had and two 0.250" blade connectors. It works perfectly with the extra wire led out through the vent to the left of the high beam. This drives a...

Is there space between the back of the bulb and the cover for this?. I can make one of these for almost nothing out of the stuff in my junk box.

Thanks for that but it's not what I need. I need the headlamp main beam and I dislike insulation displacement connectors like I dislike hangovers.

R1200GS extra lights

Battery is new (and tested as OK just in case). Alternator voltage rises by 1.5 volts at just above idle speed so that should be OK as well. Its either the servo drawing more current than the...

I've had this a few times. It always happens during heavy traffic (worst is the queue waiting to board a ferry) when I hold the bike on the front brake. Eventually the servo drags so much out of the...
