Right behind you Kev, got the shopping list made today but MG Cycle isn't open until Monday and I need to ask about three other items first! This is exciting stuff!

Dave after much searching, I am getting them from Germany, (no vat etc from europe) and even with delivery they are cheaper by a long way than anywhere in the UK!

Those Little Things...

I guess we all have a list of those little things that niggle at us on our bikes, things we keep saying we are going to fix or change, but in reality we always seem to put off till another day. Well on my Guzzi it has been the rear number (license) plate (too big, too yellow) and those little dash lamps.



So last week I ordered up an old style pressed aluminium black and silver rear plate, which arrived Friday, so yesterday I set about fixing that particular little niggle...





Next on my list are those dash lights, mine are all faded, and different types? some work, some don't, and I am not even sure which ones do what at the moment. So I looked into buying new ones, found some on US ebay, but way too expensive 80 + shipping for four, and then I may get hit with customs etc. I then found that the guys in Germany do them for half that price, and offered to ship them free with my new Cylinders. So they should be here this week too, so I can sort out another little niggle. Of course this won't be the last, as you all know too well. And a point in case, was spotted this morning with a pool of oil under the left hand fork drain screw, so that has now joined the list too

Dash Lighting

Have any of you done anything about improving the dash indicator lighting? I find they are hard to see illuminated in daylight. So I have bought a new set of lamp lenses..



but wondered if there was an upgrade to maybe LED bulbs?

no idea which ones you need but someone else is bound to pipe up .....

I replaced the whole lot of idiot lights on both of my Guzzi's -replaced the complete units with led's and bloody glad- at some point I'll upgrade the instrument illumination too .

I've never felt the need myself, but then my warning lights are in the speedometer. I'm sure there are other sources, but when I need LEDs, I buy here: http://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/ba9s-ba7s/
