The first task is getting it up onto a rear paddock stand on my own (a bit of a juggle) and then removing the seat pan to get at the electrics. The pan is held on by three screws at the rear, and by the subframe top mount bolts at the front. I have feeling I'll be drilling a couple of holes into the front of the top subframe tubes to take a couple of screws, so that in future I can get the seat pan off without undoing the subframe bolts...

Having got at the battery/electrics the first thing is to replace the trickle charger tails that were in place to the battery. I've a feeling they were a bit tired, as I noted the charger kicked in & out if they were waggled. Next I'll be checking the condition of the single red wire from the Boyer to battery + terminal & replace if required, and doing similar checks on the red & green wires from the Electrex World combined rectifier & regulator. I'll give the battery electrolyte levels a check, & clean all the connectors.

Next it's time to pull the tank off & check the wiring underneath there...
