  1. Hi everyone and merry chrimbo to all. Ive pretty much finished my resto project and everything’s great apart from the dim lights. I bought the bike with the problem, and thought it would be an easy fix. Nothing seems to fix the fault. So far, I’ve replaced the whole wiring harness, the rear light and wires, brake light switch and wires, front light holder and wires, speedo cable and wires. All 6v bulbs and I even had the light coils checked and replaced. So everything has been done apart from the handlebar switchgear. I had the frame powdercoated, but sanded the main earth point for the harnsess, so it’s a good earth. Even, ground two points of the five engine mounting points away hoping that might help. All the electrics work like they should including the pass light, just dim lights. Has anyone had this problem? Does the engine need to be grounded at every point? I thought if the engine had one good ground that would be enough. Really at a loss with this, and if I can’t sort I have to admit defeat and had it over to an auto electrician ?
  2. So I hear he hurt himself in Paris. Holy crap, hope nothing major.
  3. Hey peeps, I’m swapping my cam chain this weekend, following installation of new shims, and I’ve just ground to a halt. Here’s what’s giving me gyp. The top cover’s off and the cams are out. Tensioner is out, oil and coolant drained, left hand cover off and the clutch has been removed (with a bit of cunning and an oil filter strap-wrench - no clutch-holding tool). All good so far. Removal of cam chain is imminent. Here are some photos of what the Haynes Manual now says, may I draw your attention to point 21.3 and illustrations: Despite what the manual states, I can't get the chain guide back up the tunnel to remove it (and from the pics, it appears these photos were actually taken with the cylinder head removed, not what it sez in the book) and there’s not enough wiggle room to drop the cam chain off the crankshaft sprocket and out once the intake side chain guide is off its perch, so I’ll have to remove the primary drive gear to get access to the cam chain drive sprocket. OK. I had a looky online and found Kyle Peterson’s take: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO920_tj8GY Roger and understood. Back to the manual: to gain access to the cam chain drive sprocket, remove primary drive gear. It sez here: Undo primary drive gear nut (l/h thread - book torque of 150Nm or 101.5ft-lbs) and then remove the gear, making sure you don’t lose the Woodruff key from the shaft. As suggested by pidmyster here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lUeAoXZmGE in order to apply the necessary torque to the nut, I’ve jammed the balancer drive sprocket and the driven gear behind the cam chain drive sprocket, from above, with a copper coin and leant on the socket wrench as hard as I dare. It’s chewing the coin as expected, which locks the gears fine - but no movement from the fking nut. I’m hesitant about jumping on a breaker bar to get the nut loose. Anyone else had this happen? How much force did you have to exert to get the damn nut to turn? Plus, when it comes time to reassemble, I’m going to have to do the reverse trick with the coin, and gravity will not be my friend, as I’ll have to jam the gears from underneath, and there’s less room due to the internal casting web below. Fck. Is there a better way to do this? 🤦
  4. Ordered and installed TT case savor kit about a year ago following instructions. Both savers went on and served well for about a year, now. Went to check on bike at garage and go for a ride as temps were warm enough in Philly today and found the left saver had detached, and was sitting in the skid plate as pictured. Both savers have taken numerous hits/kicks/drops in the pine barons and never budged an inch. Trying to understand what would cause this failure so as not to repeat it. Garage is unheated in Philadelphia. Have started the bike sporadically this winter to avoid needing a carb clean. Usually only run motor for 5-10 minutes. RTV used was what came in the TT kit. Surface was cleaned thoroughly according to directions before savers were applied.
