A blown globe ? :?:

I hope not, :D
I've also run a positive an negative wire from the ignition with bullet connections, the plan is that when I inevitably splutter to a halt because of my wiring, I will just plug in my pack of 8aa batteries and I'll be off.

I do seem have it the right way round, the bigger hole for the ferrule is opposite the hex end. The hex end just has the small hole that goes right through, maybe someone made it wrong. In the end I've just drilled a slightly bigger hole.


Ahem . . :oops: :oops:

Sorry Steven, From the picture it looked like a standard cable adjuster that had been fitted the wrong way round :roll: .

Having had a look at my 'VH' I see it was a case of "Engage brain before operating keyboard" - Apologies.

See you on Sunday - we have the room almost ready :D .

Enjoy the Rally.

Bob.

Won't be a job for the Cyclone just yet Vincent, need a few more weeks to finish. I'll be riding the my other Huntmaster. I hope to get the Cyclone on the road by the middle of March that will give me 6 weeks to get it run in before I head off for the Dutch Rally.

I'm away for a few days so not much progress. It will give me some time to think what I need to finish.

Back from the Iron Horse, had a great time just a little case of rear chain breaking :cry:
Anyway I'm back on the case in hand, I've fitted a front break cable.
