I need to rtfm

Bike can only do low and medium range. Think I fanneyed about too much.

Made it to work on the bike

Made it to work on the bike without dying. Helmet also fits in my backpack. Great success!

Dreading the ride home though. Bloody hill.


Finally fused

Finally got an inline fuse on my auxiliary electrical stuff. For a long time, the kit has just been protected by the fuse box but if the main power feed were to be shorted, bad things would happen. Until now.

Sadly I haven't come up with a proper way of fixing the fuse box in place. It is just pinned in place with the box lid. Works well enough, not like it has any place to move to.

Only 2 of the relay bases are populated. Room for expansion.

Much cleaner than the corrugated sleeving that I had running about the place.


Bodged!

Well that was relatively easy. Found a bit of wire in my parts crate and soldered it in. Wonder how long before the other traces fail.

If its not one thing, its another...

Last week one of my sidelights stopped working. Corrosion ate it. That was replaced this morning but the side light indicator light on the dashboard wasn't working. Investigative surgery showed why.

More corrosion. The joys.
