    Hi I started the long awaited complete strip down of my 87 TA the other day and noticed a switch mounted under the rear mudguard. It is attached to an orange relay(?) with 6 connectors (only 2 of which are used). Any idea what it is? Cheers David

    I have just taken delivery of these, ebay item 291565702825 good strong fittings and very bright. Not fitted them yet but I can't foresee any problem and they shouldn't need a relay at just 15w each. I intend to wire them into the sidelight via a handlebar mounted switch. They look a lot more...

    Hi All, Just installed flush mounted indicators, having removed the floppy originals. New bulbs are 3w each, so 6w per side. When activating switch, the relay buzzes for a few seconds before 'catching up' and then indicators work fine. Was wondering if the relay is ohm or watt sensitive and I...

    Anyone riding in Oxfordshire needs to be very switched on for Speed Cameras. I've seen 4 this week. The one I saw today was hidden up a lane and had the device mounted on a tripod looking down a straight stretch of 50MPH. Devious bastwards. They must have a purge on. Never seen one in the place...
