And now the bad news: After about 15 minutes riding I get a fault, it doesn't matter if I use a 1k or 200ohm, it trips out and nothing I can do will fix it. It seems like it's registering faults the...

I had a theory that it might reverse the polarity for the pulse test, and that since the led was effectively open circuit in the reverse direction it was failing. I knew this was wrong when I...

So no luck with diodes or caps, resistance seems to be the way to go. Obviously I didn't try all possible combinations, but I tried everything sensible. On the plus side, I got up to 6k8 ohms without...

This would suggest to me that the resistance values are too low, even the 10ohm is drawing 20W at 14V (engine running), the 6ohm more like 35W.

NewToMe is running 600ohm, drawing 1/3W, with...

Yeah, I know, but the inmate who was investigating said a pulse from the wheel sensor caused the headlight to flash. I have no idea why this would be, or if it was coincidental, and obviously I...

I'm pretty sure that the flash after switch off is caused by a pulse on the canbus from the wheel sensor. An inmate was sniffing the canbus and saw it, although I can't find the thread any more.

42 seems high to me, I think they should be ~36ish. The pressure on the tire sidewall is the maximum, the actual value necessary is related to the weight of the bike.

If you get the Capo rims, a la 950, the front isn't wide enough to take a 120 tyre. I went for the OE 19 (on my R) for this reason. The rear is probably narrower too.
