Re: Monolever fork nut stuck

Well the nut moved with some heat... The single-shock bikes have a different fork. The big top nut secures onto a gold inner thread, which is a part that pushes up through the tube. This is all a long way of saying that the inner thread is spinning when I try to remove it. Clearly I am supposed to ...

Re: switched circuit

I was talking to a bloke today that I hadn't seen for years. He's mostly into Italian bikes but he's bought himself a 84 R100. He said it had a spot on the loom to directly connect heated grips to, but he didn't know when they added that to the loom. Before chopping back into the crowded headlight ...

Isn't there a spot in the loom for heated grips?
ME109 will know.
My '87 had a spot in the main loom for heated grips.
I did not use/need a relay.

They look bulky and heavy.
And the new Triumphs look even bulkier and are no doubt heavier. Wish Kawasaki would bring back the W.

Sociopathic evil in fact. It could ruin the poor guy's day. Maybe his whole life. I can't wait to try it. I w...
