  1. Cheers guys really appreciated, Rob unfortunately the switch gave way and caused a small fire and the wires are toast
  2. Hi all my light switch has failed and I need to replace it, So I need to undo the channel where the wiring goes down the steering column. Any advice on the best course of action after removing the seat and steering wheel, I can clearly see one bracket and can get access to that, but I’m assuming there’s going to be another bracket very close to the back of the dash? Is that a clicks out job to get to? TIA
  3. Thanks Marko, hope all is well, followed your lead, thanks all for your input. best Regards Carl
  4. Thanks for the help to date, I had used the search function, but it was from 2016 and therefore a lot of the links were dead.
  5. Hi all, I need a new battery and wandered what everyone was using in terms of make and size, ah and cca etc, mines lasted a long time but I removed the labelling from it, so can’t identify what it was thanks in advance
  6. Thanks Stuart, going to do in the winter months, hope all is well mate Cheers Carl
  7. Well, I have bypassed the cooked wiring and rewired another switch under the dash for now. It looks as if it's dash out to get to the ridiculous channel with the cover to do the proper job, which will have to wait until winter
  8. Stupid question, but how does the metal sleeve come off? Further investigation shows that the main blue power wire that goes to the foot switch is fried also, pondering now as to whether I put a normal rocker switch under the dash for the lights and just fit the stalk for show. The amount of room on that sleeve is ridiculous and poorly designed
  9. Out of interest guys where have you mounted your relays, thanks in advance Cheers Carl
  10. Thanks guys, new switch has arrived and hoping to sort out on saturday including fusing and relaying. Cheers Carl
  11. Hi Roy, no the same as I have had for the 12 years of ownership
  12. i am also thinking it may be wise to put a relay in
  13. sorry to read this nonothing, yes it was a bit of a change your pants moment, it appears to be the original switch, clear hooters i think, lights were not on at the time, but i may have used the main beam flash. Now need to find the time o see how far down the wiring the damage has been done, hoping its only as far as the tails from the switch and not the main loom Cheers Carl
  14. Hi guys, on the way to Spa, my light switch/stalk spontaneously caught fire in the outside lane of the M1, has anyone had any experience with the replacements on the market, I understand that you have to modify the mounting? Thanks in advance Carl

    you may also want to look for a heated set?
  16. guys has anybody fitted one as yet? Cheers Carl
  17. loads of crevices around the petrol tank to stash parts also, tend to leave my tank cover off when away for a while
  18. Would something like this suit, if you don't want switches/wires/brackets? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6PACK-STICK-N-CLICK-LED-SELF-ADHESIVE-LIGHT-BATTERY-OPERATED-PUSH-ON-OFF-LIGHTS/162896030599?hash=item25ed5c2b87:m:mDCm-e847-d5-UWeMGG-1Hg Cheers Carl
  19. Parry I had the same issue, mainly due to being laden as usually camping is involved, so I put some spacers in at the bottom of the springs at the rear, which don't take long to take out/put in, for weekends when not roughing it. No experience with the springs you are considering, but the above would save you a fair bob. Cheers Carl
