auxillary voltage regulator

I know it seems like an easy fix. The regulator is right there under the left panel. Seems to be held in by just a few clips. Damned if I can get it to move in or out. Would really like to remove and replace as it is showing all the classic symptoms of breaking down. Fuel gauge and temp gauge showin...

Re: Killswitch/throttle cables

Thought I was going to have to pull an all nighter. Managed to get the switch fixed tho. Joined the wire to another one to lengthen the broken wire then soldered that to the connection. Hope it lasts. Will take it for a short ride tomorrow and see. :D

Killswitch/throttle cables

:( I have successfully re+re the throttle cable which broke on me 2 days ago. That was easier than I expected( to change the throttle cables) and frustrating because of some stripped srcews. I even got that sorted out after a little storm braining and some drills. But damn, I'm stomped cause no the ...

Re: Love/Hate relationship

Sorry, no warning. I checked these as I checked all connections when I lubed the cables. The soldering holding the cable in place gave way allowing the cable to slide thru the retainer. There was no fraying or even any worn spots. On looking at the cable after it looks almost brand new. no rust or w...
