  1. Only crappy when it rains

    Dominator / FMX
    My indicators pack up when it rains. The lights come on but don’t flash. Same whether left or right is selected. All bulbs working ok. I’m no electrician and wouldn’t know how to use a meter to trace a fault. But given that all four bulbs work, the problem occurs on both sides and the switch...

    Africa Twin
    Oh no not again. This is my new AT battery. It's a 4 cell pack of 15Ah capacity. It weighs less than 2kg and if I'm honest it scares me a little since those cells will discharge happily at 150A. It cost less than 100GBP. Whilst bits are painted plated or otherwise fettled I'm getting on with...

  16. Suspension Linkage

    Africa Twin
