    Hi, I am currently installing a GPS unit to replace the dead TripMaster, but I will need a point where to catch the 12v to fit a USB connector in order to power the GPS unit while driving. I was thinking of using 2 of the PINs on the TripMaster connector, since they deliver 12v just when the...

    Passed with 2 minor riding faults. The first was nearly stalling on the slow ride with the examiner walking behind me. I couldn't see him so i had no idea if my slow riding was slow enough. Second point was for doing 48kph through the speed and obstical avoidance (should be 50) I was so...

    Was thinking of installing an inline paper fuel filter (Mahle KL13) to my 650. Anyone installed such filter? Flow of petrol is reduced? Don't want to cut original fuel hose to accomodate filter and then find that it's restricting fuel to a point that carbs will be starved of petrol. Fuel hose...

    I've done a quick search and noticed that there doesn't seem to be a working link to a guide on how to install a 12v supply socket to a bike. Old threads are linking to a dead link. So has anyone got a link to a decent guide on how to do this? Many thanks.

    Hi, Being new to this game, I took the bike out the other day to practice some slow manouvering. Not sure whether the warm weather had anything to do with it, but the bike kept stalling, even when left stationary. Later, when coming to some lights, the bike stalled again. The bike is only 6...
