[quote=Bazza]Solder circular connectors to your spare brushes. Then you don't need to carry a small soldering gun to replace failed brushes. Just attach the leads to the two nuts on the top end of the commentator. ]

Or you could inspect your brushes every five years or so...there has been a spare set in my parts bin for the last five years, at least.

Been riding airheads 20 years and all I carry as spares is a bulb kit and tire plug kit, and my BMW MOA Anon book, never had to use the book however.

If you keep up your maintenance at home, on road issues are pretty scarce, though I did have my oil pressure sender fail earlier this week, and a headlight relay earlier this season, turn signal relay end of last season.

Do your maintenance and ride with a light heart
