Eero - yes, I think you're right, but the lever on the left does not act the way the note on the diagram says.

Headlamp panel switch

Hi all, I have this panel switch, and the apparently correct wiring diagram, but should I be viewing the switch from under or over ? Sounds silly, but looking under, so it matches the diagram, the left hand lever does not work the way the diagram says. Any thoughts ? ps, it's a W/NG much modified in...

Re: Checking for a Stolen Engine or Chassis

Ah, local office, are they all closed now ? I don't think you could get away with it by post. Sometimes it's just all down to what minion you get dealing with it, some are helpful, some not.

Re: Checking for a Stolen Engine or Chassis

Re: Checking for a Stolen Engine or Chassis

Admin, how on earth did you get a bike registered without an MoT ? Alth...
