zzr update

well, switchgear arrived yesterday with no bloody light switch controls, so spent an hour faffing around re soldering switch into my old switchgear.  Sorted, hooked it into loom, worked.  routing the wiring into frame under air box the old spring fell out from starter button...balls comes to mind as that is what i needed (or lost)..went out yesterday on private land, didn't feel right..came back put panels on, TYRES! pressures up to 41psi, oh lordy, i have missed her..! Pics to follow later.  Bought in her 09 whilst doing my das..feels sublime! lot quieter than the bandit too..!  Took her out ont ot he road to get brakes working and free off clutch plates a bit..within 3 miles she was back to normal..MOT in Sept for my birthday as on holiday atm.

on a similar note ....

was looking at a bike on E-bay ( dont get me wrong , it IS a nice bike ) he put a set of rear-sets on it , no provision for a brake light switch , SO , ( fairly clever ) hooked exsisting switch to a cable tie on the brake lever and taped switch to another part of rearset .... looked a bit codged up ...NOW ..for £5 ... he coulda bought a hydraulic pressure switch ( which they recommend ) fitted in 10 mins ...looks the bollox .. things like that ...piss me off ..... cheap skates i tell ya CHEAP SKATES ....
