One of my aftermarket indicators is on the fritz, doesn't work but if i move this wire around a little bit it works again on and off. I've traced the problem down to this component, whatever is frayed or broken or loose is inside this black sheath. Can anyone tell me what this part is? Can I simply cut it out of the circuit or do I need to get a new one?
Got the Pricelist for Honda Motorcycles 2016 (Ireland) earlier in the week. No Pan European, just the CTX1300, no Deauville, just the CTX700. No VFR 1200 and of cource the CBR1100XX is long gone, and nothing like it.There is now no proper tourer or sports tourer in the Honda range, apart from the 1800 Goldwing. The Fireblade and VFR800 have survived, but that seems to be purely for Race Homologation reasons.
It either means they are planning a VFR/ST/NT replacement, or they have given up. BMW/Kawasaki/Yamaha/Triumph/Moto Guzzi will be most pleased. Or else they are banking everything on the success of the Africa twin. The rest seem to be cage engines cut in half, stuck into a bike frame and any remains of a soul removed.

Late notice I know lads , but the 10th annual Kenny and Wayne scannell bike run is tomorrow.
Sign in mandarin palace pub in ferry bank Waterford at 12, head towards kilkenny through Vegas Bally Hale etc etc, and return via thomastown graignamanagh new Ross.
This run has raised up against 80K for local charities and hospitals such as Waterford river rescue, Waterford hospice and Waterford regional.
Nice route this year if you fancy a spin, all welcome and your support much appreciated.
Searched everywhere and can't find my driving licence and I'm due to take the boat for Holyhead tomorrow, which is to say I am going to Holyhead tomorrow. Meeting a friend in London tomorrow evening. I've never been stopped and asked for papers in the UK before, but I'm guessing if they do, the ol' "good lad, show it in your nearest Garda station within ten days" won't be on the cards, and I could end up in a world of sh1t.
So I reckon I've two options. One is pull into the first small village I pass and report to the police that my wallet's been stolen (hassle but gives me a clear run with a piece of paper, though I may go to hell for breaking the 7th commandment, or is it the 8th?).
Second option...take the 99% chance that I don't get asked. But... [Read More]
Bike was knocked over while parked with damage to the lower cowl and was hoping on getting the plastics restored to new. Does anyone know any decent spray painters in the general Dublin or Leinster area?
