  1. Indicators

    Have noticed recently that it takes about 4 seconds for my indicators to engage after being turned on, not a highly technical bod myself.......but could it be a dodgy relay??
  2. Winkidators

    Just recently I've noticed my indicators are taking about 4 seconds to light up from switching them on:mad: has anyone else experienced this, and how do I solve it please, thanks in advance :lol:
  3. Indicator Relay?

    Africa Twin
    I noticed on a ride out yesterday that there was a few seconds delay between flicking the indicator switch and the indicators coming on. When I had a closer look today, when u switch on the indicators you can hear a relay clicking quite quickly and then slowing down to a normal rate when the...
  4. Delayed indicators

    Hi Folks, told you the questions would start. When I switch on my indicators they don't flash for about 5 seconds then work fine. Happens both sides, engine on or off. Any help appreciated.:confused:
  5. Electrical Question, RD07a

    Africa Twin
    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...
  6. 650 Dipswitch

    I am having trouble dipping the mainbeam. The switch only works if I press and hold the button very hard for a couple of seconds, sometimes repeatedly. And by the then need is usually passed anyway! It works spot on going back to mainbeam. I'm not very confident on LX. Any advice on dismantling...
  7. What happens when you play with cars...

    Saw a longer version of this the other day. It's now on YouTube in a shorter version: The longer version just has 30 seconds of car driving along hogging the outside line before the action starts. Doh!
  8. Is this normal

    What about this noise. Not the tapping but every few seconds there is a deeper more bass burble. Its only really noticeable when on choke and seems to be coming from the airbox. Bike runs and ticks over fine. It's just the noise I'm interested in. Is this normal - YouTube

  11. Spend £279, save £170, and lose the lot in 4 seconds flat.

    Went to a conference today. Next door to the venue is a bike shop. I goes browsing on the way home as you do and spies a very nice Raleigh Metro GLX. It's reduced from £449 to £329 to £279 he sez. Throw in some lights and a pump and I'll take it I sez. So it's in the living room when the...
  12. improve your brakes in seconds and for free

    yep, super little mod I worked out all by myself. I haven't ridden the Vara much through the winter - keeping it for "best" and let the TA take the salty hit. However when I got it out this past weekend and went up to the lakes apart from just feeling different and really really powerful after...
