do you use the choke to start it?

HID kit is the only real fix for boxeye lights. Do the dual light mod if it hasn't been done already and fit an H4 HID kit on the right hand side with a fuse for the dipped beam part for an easy MOT pass in the future.

The sensor itself rarely fails. Are you sure its the sensor and not the cable or the plastic bit in the hub?

leaving the wheel in with someone sat on the bike standing on the brake pedal may help you loosen the bolts butyour better off dropping the wheel out to finish the job.

IF (Big IF) the level is going up it can only be one of two things and neither are good news.

1. Coolant getting in there
2. Fuel getting washed in there from the cylinders because of massive over fuelling.

when i took my fairing off and pulled apart the headlights i was shocked that it was a h1/h4 setup and instantly took a dislike to it


The EU regs at the time only allowed a single dipped beam light. H1 or H4 makes no difference. 55w is 55w.
The best fix is HIDS but if you want dual lights on for dipped it is a single cable to run from under the tank to the H4 top connector.

Japan drives on the left the same as we do so there wouldn't be a different part number for the 400 headlight as it was only ever made for their home market.

No reserve in that sense. You have a fuel gauge and a warning light instead. Theres officially about 2.5 litres left when the light comes on. Enough for 20+ miles if you take it steady.

sounds like a chaffed wire or a broken sensor

jOnes - You will find the tank didn't build up pressure, it dropped it.

IF the breather pipes get kinked by not pulling them down properly when you lower the tank and whay you thought was a hiss of air coming out when you opened the tank was actually air going in.

DO NOT block any of the pipes.

If theres a few of you I would recommend the apartment that Pam and Dave have in the link I sent to you. 3 bedrooms and a sofa bed in the lounge. They are used to bikers too.

Alternatively, La Godfriere could be good but La Passoniere  (my neighbours) would be too small.

Depending when you are thinking of Andy, I may be out there and can show you some of the roads. I'm taking a bike over there next week to leave in my shed for when I am there. BigMac has an FZS he is planning to take to his place too.

focme is bigmac still alive???

Bob, are there enough roads to keep me interested over a long weekend? Say staying in a nice little hotel somewhere in the middle?

BigMac is alive and kicking. He doesn't get on here much but is often lurking around the faceache groups.

There is a great B&B 5 mins from BigMacs place which I can send you the contact details for if you want them. They have an apartment they let out and a couple of B&B rooms. Alternatively, next door to my place there is a Gite that is rented out by the owners. Theres not too many hotels around unless you head to Bagnoles-de-l'Orne or Domfront or into the cities but there are LOADS of decent roads round there to keep you occupied for weeks.
From my place in near to Ambrieres-Les-Vallees you have to travel 45-60 mins to get to a motorway and there's not a lot of dual carriageways around either. All good roads. Have a look the maps

Rehab is fine if you catch them young or its a first offence. Too often we see habitual criminals on the tv where they have done community service, had fines, had probation and several jail terms and still have fresh offence lists as long as your arm to be "taken into consideration" when they appear in court where they are then told "don't do it again, pay us £10p per week and fec off out of my court". That's not a deterrent, that's just paying 10p per week for the huge amount of crack they bought by selling our stolen stuff. Prison doesn't work on these people. Removal of hands might teach them though.

More serious offenders like armed robbers, yes prison. A stint in there may teach them to straighten up their ways. after that.....

The most serious offenders, like Brady, who knew what they were doing and we have evidence to prove it, are beyond rehabilitation. Death penalty here.

Mayenne is the region we both have houses in. BigMac is about 10 miles east of the city of Mayenne near Ribay and mine is about 10 miles north near Ambriere-Les-Valee.
Some great  roads round there. Alpes Manselle near to Alencon is good and so is Suise Normandy to the north
Depending how long you are there for, if you are looking for somewhere to eat on the sunday night,head to Bagnoles. Not much in Mayene city itseld.
