H7 low beam and H4 high beam

I fitted LED's when I got the bike but had electrical issues just after, turned out to be something else though but they were good while they were in.

Passed wind at the very least I shouldn't wonder.

You just had to mention that didn't you.
Let's have a vote

All soft drinks were better back in the day coz they were full of sugary goodness, nuffink tastes the same anymore.
Does anyone else remember going to the cinema on a Saturday morning and paying with jam jars?

Excellent, I thought Superbikes was a step too far too soon. Seen it a few times with other riders over the years. The experience will do her good.

Yes, I have in the past but it depends on the how the filter is placed in the oil pan.
Never understood why they don't put strain plugs in auto trans boxes.
As for the op's problem, I have a couple of Hyundais and they sidestepped this problem by cutting a hole in the plastic tray where the drain bolt is and I made it even easier by adding a stahlbus drain.

Well there's a surprise.

Bluff called, wonder what will happen next. Their lawyer said he would shut down all us bases, can't see that happening.

I've had one sat on my shelf for about 8 years, meant to fit it to two tdm's and to my 8 but just never got round to it.
Got a quick shifter, a fixed front and rear camera dashcam, spotlights with tilt sensors and led bulbs to fit too. Don't think I'm going away this year so might get around to doing it all.

TBH I think it's a problem with the switch itself. I've had these fitted for about 18 months now but hate the exact same problem start just before Christmas and get steadily worse till they won't stay on at all. Thought it might be a voltage /battery/short problem but as above all that is fine. I'll be taking my switch apart when the weather warms up.
Switching off the sensor has them working correctly so the problem is in the sensor circuit somewhere.

If it helps, the manual for my fz8 says if the temperature reaches 130 degrees pull over and stop.
If you only got to 122 I reckon you're OK.

Iirc there is a spare fuse on most starter relays. Check the fuse rating though, mine came with something like 30 amp ones which is way more than required.

Have you tested the fan to be sure it's that and not something else causing it to not come on?

Yes, they're made to a price. Talon are better but renthal are the best. This is only my opinion of course.

Add I said, they tend to wear quickly and shorten the life of your chain.

Not tried anything different on mine but the tall yam one on mine works well for me.

God no, stay away from jt sprockets they will half the life of your chain. Renthal sprockets front and rear for me, 40000 miles on my current chain and only half worn.

Think I've got the tall yam one on mine and it does a good job for my 6ft.

I'm gonna fit the led headlight bulbs back in when I get chance.

What do you think, better or worse?

Picked up a brand new one on the Bay for 20 quid.
Might want to get a couple of huggers in too when you see them cheap. I've had one break every year but I do cover a lot of miles,  around 500/week.

First thing I did was put the rear end back to standard. Don't like the look of the tail tidy.
