    Question for any of you wiring gurus out there. One of our posties (2009) has suffered a setback in the wiring department. It has no horn, no indicators, no headlight, no tail light, not brakelight, a dead battery and even when running none of these things work. Am I looking at a dead stator or broken wire or....? Ive swapped regulators between bikes, pulled the wiring apart up in the steering area, checked the plugs from the stator, checked the wires from the extended ignition wiring and checked inside the headlight bucket. There appears to be nothing broken and nothing loose. The battery terminals are tight and clean, the fuse is intact. We have done some very rocky roads lately and I noticed the tail light would become very dim then bright then dim then it went out as we bumped along. Has to be a connection or something right? What should I look for? Bike runs perfect still and is a CDI postie. Its really annoying me!

    First try a good battery
    If you still have no luck
    It will be a power supply problem
    If it runs and things work at first then go down hill it will be a stator /regulator problem.
    A cheap multimeter will help espically if its stator related.
    Be easier to diagnose if i was ,wish, was over there :-)
    Cheers Will

    Can anyone tell me the diameter of the shifter spline? I have a knock-off Postie and want to replace the shifter with a less protrusive one. Thanks.

    that does look like it is a bit bigger than standard. True or False.

    Fire that up and you'd think you had a Detroit diesel hiding in your workshop (oil everywhere)

    I'm not mechanic but I thought putting in new chain and sprockets would not be out of my depth until I started to struggle to remove the final drive sprocket. Can't for the life of me get the bolts off. Is there something I am missing? are the bolts held in by some kind of cir-clips?

    Mine were as tight as fuck as well. I got a big block of wood and put in 2 coach bolts to hold the sprocket so I could get some tension on the socket to undo them.

    Chucked a few thousand on the stroker over a week.
    It decided to throw a bolt out the cylinder and gove my boot a good old oiling.
    Pretty impressed no need for a china if you want a bit of go
