Re: Headlight bulb keeps burning out?

Correct me if I'm wrong but blown bulbs are also a sign of a faulty rectifier? Obviously not the case if it's just an isolated incident but if it happens again then it could well be. I had several blown bulbs in the past (990SM) and a new rectifier solved this.

Good luck.

Re: Draw through circuits

These bikes are pretty fickle when it comes to batteries and I recently had similar issues with a [then] 16 month old battery. All the usual checking and fiddling, followed by giving up and 'jump starting' from one of those new fangled power bank things. IN the end I gave up and replaced the battery...

Not expensive to replace - they do go with time and it's worth replacing as soon as possible.

Re: What's it for?

Normally there is a sure in there - when fitting the Scottoiler, the screw is removed and replaced by that spigot ... you'll have to fit a rubber cap over it or replace with a screw, which I think is Product Number: 61036023100

Yes indeed - perfectly normal. And they certainly get a bit whiffy, especially if you store the bike in a garage ... :oops:

Thank you kindly.

(Map 10 has always worked pretty well, so was 'just wondering').

Re: 990 Power Commander 5 & Tune ECU custom maps

Hong Kong's 'standard' petrol is 98 RON, so would that mean adding 1-2% to the F Trim? Anybody had experience with this and can comment on the differences between 1% and 2%.

Thanks very much!

Re: Clutch slave cylinder, time for service? SMT 2010

Doesn't look too good - I'd suggest simply changing to an Oberon, especially as you're halfway through the job, simply by removing that rusty thing !

Re: New with old manufacturing date tires

I'd suggest NOT OKAY - the rubber in the tires dries out over time. This can lead to cracking, greater stress on the tyre’s infrastructure and “catastrophic failure.”

Yes, everything needs changing and the tyres too .. .they'll be 5 years old, not used, bike resting on one spot for 5 years, so they'll be fooked!

Re: f1 light on start up

Seen it do this when the battery is low ... usually after a period of inactivity and it takes a few turns to get going.

Which doesn't mean that something else is wrong with mine but it goes away after a couple of normal runs.

Re: oberon clutch slave problems

I think you'll find - based on my own experiences and from other postings here - that the bike is hard to move when in gear and the clutch is pulled in. "That's the way they are, Sir!", apparently! I have the Oberon slave installed too - I tend to feel a bit of a jump forward when engaging gear and ...

Re: Aaaaargh Dead Bike

Yep, the original battery is a Yuasa ... once it's shagged, it's shagged! It will appear fully charged if charged using an Optimate but it won't start the bike. It won't even start if jumped from a car battery. This happened to me recently and a new battery cured it.
