headligth not working

FFS if it's not one thing it's the other!!!

Had the rear wheel off for a new tyre (don't the beads break easy compared to the Adv??) and gave it a once over, indicators, brake lights etc all OK. Headlight either low or high beam - nothing. Checked the fuse and that's OK, so before diving in behind the dash any "common known issues"?

Plan is to check wiring for breaks, check bulb but not sure what else it could be as I can't see how the switch could have become knackered.

cheers

Markie

I've been having bulbs go bad.

They are burning into inside the metal base part - NOT the Filament part inside the glass

Well I put the 16t sprocket on the front today, feels good around the yard. I'll try it on some real offroad Sunday, so I'll report on it then. Hopefully I'll spend far less time feathering the clutch in the tight stuff.

You'll be very happy with the result

Thanks BD - I take it it's pretty obvious when I pull the bulb?

cheers

Like BD I have the Dirt n' Blood risers that move the bars up and forward .. the forward being the key part. All held together with a nice Scott's damper Perfect

My subframe isn't cracked... but if it cracks somewhere on this trip, like on the Ho Chi Minh Trail.... the only way of repairing it will be to tie it up with fencing wire.

So - I'm looking to reinforce it before I leave. Trouble is, my son and a couple of mates (mech engineer, fabricator and boat builder) all tell me that welding it will weaken it. The more welding, the softer the 7020 aluminium will get. We don't know what the factory temper is, so we are flying blind if we try and re-temper it.

Current thinking at this end is a bolt-in reinforcement bracket that goes from the rear grabrail/luggage rack mounting point, to the fron mounting points and then to the seat lock brace and exhaust mounting points.

Any thoughts guys?
I ran the Trans Labrador Highway (1500km of gravel and new construction) with the Worlfman / BBriggs racks and saddlebags. All loaded with a top rack and medium Wolfman duffel packed with camping gear and no cracks at all.

I'm sure the racks add a lot of stress relief to the subframe as they triangulate load down to the rear footpegs.

If you're going to carry saddlebags it's an easy and clean option.

Sometimes the adjustment comes from flipping the barrel they hinge on 180 degrees so that the peg has a hi and low position. This is how the Fastway pegs work at least.

No, not really.
Sometimes Black is visible from exessive heat around the metal contacts on the end of the bulb, but not always

So this is how it went....

- Open up the head light surround
- Unplug connector, remove rubber surround, pull bulb.
- inspect for ages but not able to see anythign wrong.
- refit everything
- still no joy
- take switch apart
- inspects for ages, all OK, puts back together
- still no joy
- start inspecting wiring, inch by inch
- follow wire fronm switch to the connector behind head light.
- plug connector back in as it's hanging loose
- hands in pockets, looks down, whistles, wander around garage thnking "the boys on Advrider are going to rip the piss out of me"

I have no idea how it came out - lighhts haver been fine and it's been ages since I've been behind the dash - oh well lesson learnt.

cheers

Markie

Thats the exact one I've got still uninstalled in a box of goodies from the PO. So if anyone has some feedback on these that would be great. I was waiting to install when I put on a new back tire in a couple of weeks.

Spare Clutch and brake levers - options other than OEM?

Looking to pick up a spare set of front brake and clutch levers to pack with me on the trail and the only option I have found is OEM at about $110 for the pair. Are there any lower cost alternatives? I always like the peace of mind of having spare levers even with bark busters and not overly tightend bar mounts.
What do you guys pack for spare levers?

Thanks,
Ken

I have a rear break. I worry more about a clutch lever breaking.
