Replacing all bulbs with LED (including Headlight) - Connections, AC -> DC Conversion?

Dear MCN Experts Team!I am the proud owner of the Vietnamese version of the Honda ANF Innova 125i. While it might not inspire bike envy in most, it treats me well and I love it to bits.At the moment I am in the middle of converting the lighting system. I have found LED replacements for the winkers, brake/tail light, parkers, and headlight. While I understand that there may be those who dislike LED headlights, there is very little policing of laws regarding modifications here and I am convinced that the bulb will be an upgrade from the current one (single ...

Powervalve stiff after rebore

Hi all, does anyone have experience of filing down powervalves after a rebore. After having a .5mm oversize piston fitted my right powervalve only is rather stiff to spin freely or connected to the shaft and its baffling me. The left one seems fine, i have used my spare set right one but still the same. I really dont want to peg the valves open or buy a new cylinder thats plated. Any ideas what i could do on this anyone?

Can't get 6th gear - Yam Diversion

HelloI recently bought a 1997 Yamaha XJ 600 S Diversion, and although it was relatively old it seems very lightly used and in fairly good condition.After a month of use with no problems I noticed in some online info that it should have 6 gears. I can only get 5 on mine. Trying to change up into '6th' just feels like there is not another gear there. The lever shifts but no more gears. I am 99% sure I am not counting incorrectly, and it feels ok, but it's a bit of a nagging worry now.Can anyone give me any ideas of ...

Yamaha MT-125

So I'd really like one of these, I've seen my local dealer does a payment scheme by paying monthly, just wondering do they check credit history? Never done this before
