Hi Guys,

After sorting out the starter motor problems, fitting the new battery and fixing the abs problems, I now have no fault lights showing yeepee . So today I took her out for her first run of the year, which considering its Ireland is great to be out so early, the weather was beautiful lots of sunshine although low in the sky and a little blinding at times it felt great to blow the winter cobwebs away and she performed really well no issues just lots of winding roads and a short stop off at a very famous watering hole. see photo. hope to see the eccentrics at Stradbally Fayre on the 19th.

Cheers

Pat.

That looks like a very short outing, not much of a run to that place unless you did as Stephen did the day we were up Sally Gap with Indian036.....road was closed at one point so he took the long way home and thought we wouldn't notice.

There is usually an inability to pass that particular watering hole on a sunny day.......

Looking forward to 19th.....!!

Not such a short outing, was out for two hours, the stop off was just a photo opportunity.

Fair play Pat you're ahead of the rest of us. Must have been a tad nippy up there in Glencullen. Looking forward to seeing the work you've done on the 19th.

Hi 88

Not cold at all just a bit breezy but did have thermal insert in jacket.
Nice to get out and give her a run all be it not a long haul, the idea was to see if all issues had been resolved and so far so good.

Cheers

Pat

Good to see you out and about.

I had a non start issue at the end of November, resolved by replacing Hall sensor.....but when I went out Monday in the fabulous sunshine bike cut out twice, when I passed over 2 bumps. Started again but it seems to have a cause in an off road incident avoiding a car on Sunday morning, it came up the narrow hill to my place so quick it was either be impacted head on or take the K to the soft margin that's a bit below the road. The behave like a bucking bronco, especially as it's got big stones under the soft stuff. Miraculously I managed to keep it from going down but it took a mighty shaking short of doinga high side so I think something is disturbed. Saturday is now set aside....

Last 3 months have seen a few jobs done too, tyres, brakes and pads, new seat, brake switches, speedo sensor, some electrical cleaning.......only thing left is a service kit.

You were lucky you didn't do damage to yourself never mind the bike. Sounds like you did a complete rebuild.
I'd say you'll sort out the shorting problem in time, good luck with it.
