    Transalp
    I have a new-to-me 2005 Transalp V4. Having now read the users manual it stares that when I turn the ignition on the little green 'key' light (immobiliser system indicator) on the RH side of the neutral indicator should turn on for a few seconds and then go off? That does not happen. turn key...
  12. Using Earth For Ignition Kill

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello Gents, If I wanted to use an earth fed switch (momentary push type) to kill the ignition, which wire do I need to feed the earth to? The standard Domi kill switch just cuts the power to the CDI, but I am trying to simplify the wiring and switches. Many thanks Jim

  16. Fuel tap

    Africa Twin
    When putting my bike back together I found the fuel tap is leaking when in the off position, I had lost my patience in the excitement of hoping it was going to start, to open up the tap and see what was wrong. So anyway the bike fired up as normal :p but it looks like I have a sticking float...
