No DMW yet, I'm working on bringing a battery back to life by 'charge boiling' surplus fluid off as the specific gravity was all messed up by me filling it too high & it wasn't happy at all.

It was the one from STD1, and all the cells but one are now back down to the suggested level & the battery is receiving & holding charge much better now. The DMW battery (14 ah) is currently on the STD1 & behaving well so when the (19 ah) STD1 battery is 'healed' I can swap & get the DMW running. I'm going to give it a good churn over with the plugs out just to get a bit of oil shifted around, and then see if it's happy to start. Then it's all about cashflow re tyre/tax/MOT/Insurance. Can't wait.

Glad to hear you took the third wheel off the Audi & it's running on two wheels as it naturally should. Did Audi ever produce a bike?

Hmmmm, it seems to me that between 4.11pm & 5.19pm somebody was spiked with LSD?

What? You want I should deliver you a CX500* harness of a similar vintage just so you can be reminded of exactly how nice the loom you're dealing with really is.

Granted, all the working out what's what & trying to understand why the hell they designed it so that if your charge bulb blows your battery doesn't get electrojuiced. I accept all that of course, and for me it's always a matter of trying to figure out something I already worked out but forgot since I last wired a build. I know it's a pain, but it could be so much worse.

* Best described as hard brittle plastic straws full of green powder with archeological condition 'connectors' at each end. If I were dealing with that I'd call in Phil from Time Team (Asstrails son) -

Ah, I think I see your problem, you've completely forgotten to plug your bin (B) into your cat scratch pole (C) using the special tape (A). Also you've got what I think is a metal tape measure (D) on the table?, you should this cut into various lengths & use to short out any problem areas (i.e. the entire loom).

Also, you've shit yerself, & by the look on your face it was a bit of a taxing task, but ultimately satisfying, which by coincidence is what sorting out wiring looms is all about

Question S'not gooing very well?

Ooh dear, that sounds very glum. Might I suggest you work on the poo looms with them connected to the bikes meaty & manly charged battery (or 2, or maybe 30?), and then at least when you get the wrong connections & a quick jolt from the HT leads it may work as a crude form of anti depressant electro-shock therapy?

I knew a guy last year who was getting the full voltage version, and it really seemed to work for him. The staff told me he'd not spoken for six months before the 1st session. I did ask if his 1st wordz were "TURN THAT BLOODY THING ORFFFF!?!" but the 'not mad' staff didn't seem to get it you know?

It's like when a male staffer walked into TV lounge 1 (TV in 2 didn't work) to find half the ward amenably addled & raddled in front of the TV showing one of those Air Ambulance Emergency type programmes. A bloody & battered man was being treated alongside the Air Ambulance, & then flown off to Hostiple (as the toddler I used to call it). The Murse asked how the guy was injured, and there being no-one else in the room who wasn't either mutely sedated with someone elses scrip meds or thru rampant aerosol sniffing, or busy urinating on the floor, or a pre electro-therapy silent type, I naturally saw it as my duty to reply 'He got landed on by the Copter...' Again he didn't even twinge, they just open their note books & write some shit down. No sense of humour - that, without fear of contradiction by facts, is THE single biggest & most pressing ultra urgent problematic issue crisis trouble &/or predicament the Pritish psychiatric system faeces. Sorry, faces.

Hope the pic below helps -

God, what happened to this thread? Someone seems to have clamped electrodes to its balls and flicked the switch, as it appears to have woken up from a deep sleep. Anyway, hope everyone's well and hearty? Now then, what's been posted recently? I see dirtyboydeadly's doing the wiring-loom watusi....all I can say is that the last time I had it on the 'best airhead in the world' it all worked just fine, even had the indicators working and the horn went toot-toot. However, I must say that it's set up for points, which might cause a small problem were one to try and make it work for electronic ignition but it's not a great problem to add in the small section of wiring that runs to the ign control module (it's in the box of goodies, DBD) however, I might be barking up the wrong tree, and the problem might be to do with one of DBD's other airheads. In either case, I'm innocent, ok? Airhead wiring looms are sent onto this earth to challenge the personality and character of airhead owners, as we know; you just have to persevere and keep on banging your head against a wall until it all connects up properly. As a tip, don't forget to deal with the indicator buzzer tails, either loop them together or fit a buzzer, or you'll have all manner of shit trying to get yer winkers winking appropriately. Also, watch out for your headlight relay; fit the wrong one and things go very wrong. Same goes for your indicator relay and, while I think about it, your starter relay. Here's another tip...decide what year you want your wiring loom to 'represent' and fit all relays as that 'year', and everything should be just great until it all goes horribly wrong again......

I notice planktonnn had posted a pic of an intriguing piece of postmodernist sculpture a few posts back, by a very talented artist by the name of Serge le Blanc....I was so intrigued by it that I took the trouble of contacting Monsieur le Blanc* to get a better pic of it, which I'm posting below, so as to raise the tone of this thread, thereby stimulating the latent sensitivities of all the drunks, derelicts and drug abusers that wash up here. As you can see, the sculpture is constructed from an artfully arranged series of interconnecting school chairs, held in place with G clamps and, in my opinion, is one of the best pieces of sculpture I've ever seen.

*Multiple personalities are great, aren't they?
