If you still have the toolkit there’s usually a spanner to fit the back nut. Will do if you mark where it is the start then count turns off.

If its a gen 1, these are notorious for
  • having undersized cables in the sub-loom, sits under the front cowling, connects to the main loom.
  • the same undersizing on the cables going from the reg-rec to the main loom.
My FZS had a similar issue in that the volts at the clocks was sitting around 10v with the headlight on, I go around this issue by running an extra ground to the clock from the small frame mount above the reg-rec. Then I changed the halogens for LED -
I went for a fanless design because rain would just kill a little fan in now time, and where the shaft behind the bulb is the exact same width and length so the rubber headlight boots seal against them keeping the headlight sealed.

These LED bulbs have several benefits over HID but primarily you get proper hi beam and with a much better low beam pattern.
Thanks for your reply, I suppose it’s just easier to fit the leds

i notice when I switch my lights on sometimes the clocks go off then come back on, also if I pull the pass light switch in. I did a test with the lights disconnected and that stopped the clocks going out. I’ve checked the battery voltage and it drops quite a bit when the lights go on, I guess it’s enough to cut the clocks out. Has anyone altered their lights to fire them off a relay? Would it make any difference? Gen 1 2001

New cables arrived form brooks barn motorcycle, different design. Exhaust end cables go right through nipples. Other end look pressed on.

Mine snapped when I was rear ended and the exhaust was shunted forward.  I replaced the inners with the venhill rebuild kit, about £10.  Did 30 k or so before selling it and are still on now so they are decent.
Was an option but as I am hopefully get a refund on them I’m just as well getting a new set.

Mick has a used one for sale here,24571.0.html

I would sooner a used OEM than a new snide. Just my thoughts.

I would rather have new cables. They don’t last forever and pattern parts can be as good as .

Blimey, I’m on std fork spring with 10w oil. Just as you say it kick off bumps all the time, I read on here somewhere the forks have too much comp so I’ve would it all off, it’s better but not as good as other bikes I’ve had. I’ll try some progressive springs.

« on: 27 July 2018, 09:42:10 PM »
I was going to buy a new clutch cable but I thought I'd have a go at oiling the old one first.
It did the trick. Gone from super heavy clutch action to feather light.

Assuming you haven't broken the cable.
They do wear out eventually
