Not seen anyone here with 15K+ Posts before. Why... but... how... is that even possible! :eek

there are over 11,000 members on this site. Many don't post anything but there are 5 people who have posted more than BigMac. None of them have logged in to the site in over a year.

I wish 600 owners, no matter how sincere, would stop posting advice on the 1000 forums based on their bikes, it is neither relevant or helpful.
The picture may not be helpful but the guidance would be the same whatever bike it was

On the FZS600, it is an oil level switch. Put a bit more oil in. The problem can also occur if the oil is too thin as it rushes to the back of the engine quicker. Maybe do an oil change and ensure it is topped up to the max mark.

I have now done three of these course, I read earlier in here that you are allowed 10% + 2mph before they prosecute you, I think that might be a digression thing as I got done doing 34 mph in a 30 limit on my Fazer by the old type Treveleo camera that could only take a pictures of the rear of your vehicle.

Speeding is whats known as an "absolute" offence. You are either speeding, or your not. There is no grey area. In a 30mph limit they could do you at 30.1mph but don't as the courts would be full up with people complaining. this is why the association of chief police officers set a discressionary +10%+2mph limt where they wouldnt presecute.
In reality, if you have a standard vehicle, at a real 70mph your speedo could legally be reading anything between 70-77mph. Regrdless of how accurate your speedo was when new with new tyres etc, once the tyres start wearing, the discrepency creeps in.

In the real world, 34mph probbaly read somewhere between 34-37 on your speedo so you knew you were OTT. No defence really.

Averaging 140-150kmph (in a car), limit was 130kmph

I better be careful next week then.
I tend to stick to around 130 on the autorute though so shouldn't be too much of an issue.

The bigger issue for me will be the 80kmh limit they have everywhere else now

Incidentally I got flashed in France a couple of times on Friday night. Once by a regular speed camera, the second time between toll booths! That's a new one. Collected ticket at gate one.. Arrived at tollgate two to oay, about 100km down the road. As my passenger inserted payment card into the toll gate. BIG *##FLASH##* and had our photo taken.
Touch wood these tickets never seem to catch up with me.

What sort of speed were you doing along the autoroute?

Agree that you can get clutch slip if the cable is too tight. If you have not adjusted the clutch cable correctly (see the manual for the correct adjustments) at the top and the bottom then you wont have free play at the lever effectively partially pulling the lever to make it slip.
Assuming you have done this and you do have some free play at the lever and its still slipping, its the clutch plates.

If you only have minimal free play and the clutch isn't disengaging properly (remember bike clutches do drag a little) then its a stretched cable so the cable needs replacing.

Only in the same way that you can guess the nitrogen content of the air in the tyres by looking at the headlight bulb.

Actually not quite in the same way huh. You've no access whatsoever to the inside of the tyre from the headlight bulb.
I was thinking more like visually checking brake pads without removal.
It was a silly question (although no question is silly) I know partly born from a bored moment but you can actually see/reach some of the plates from  the filler hole.  So if the was considerable wear would the spacing of these plates in theory be Feeler gauge noticeable.
Either my clutch is on  last legs or cable has stretched and needs renewing but if I change the cable am I then risking over wearing the clutch too far and foccin up the flywheel Blah blah

Obviously the only sure way of knowing the clutch condition is by removal and measuring individual plates but that means £16 for a gasket  and the clutch then may as well be changed.

You need to remove the plates to measure them. They don't work int eh same way as a car and wont wear the flywheel. Instead you have two different types of plate in the basket.

If the clutch wont disengage properly, go for the cable.
If the clutch slips underload, go for a new clutch.
