Re: Wigan Motorbike and Scooters. ( Keys )

Finally got the key sorted. After a few phone calls and emails to Wigan Motorcycles they told me to take the bike to my nearest Suzuki dealer, B &B Motorcycles, Lincoln, and they would cover the cost of a new key to be cut and programmed. Luckily the weather wasn't too bad on Friday and so rode the ...

Wigan Motorbike and Scooters. ( Keys )

A few months ago I part exchanged my Honda Transalp 700 for a Suzuki V Strom 650 xt with 2000 miles on the clock, from the above dealer. I was quiet happy with the deal and love the Strom. A few weeks later someone from the dealer rang me up asking if I'd handed in the spare set of keys from the Tra...

Re: Ecky Thump Rally 11 to 13 October

Yep Steve, another good weekend, thanks Mario. As usual it started to rain as I was packing the tent away and of coarse it peed it down all the way home. Thankfully my wet weather gear kept me dry except for my gloves. I've got some handlebar muffs but didn't bother to put them on. Doh!

Re: V Twin Club

Here are 2 of mine. The Harley when we were living in Australia. The V-Strom is my latest bike. In between I've owned a Guzzi California and the bike before the Strom was a Honda Transalp 700.

Re: Fitting heated grips.

So you go out in the rain and your grips could overheat? I would get rid of them myself, however if you must fit them, add an isolator switch so they can quickly be turned off if the controller fails. If I've paid 25 quid for something I dont just get rid of it. :lol: I have fitted an isolator swit...

Re: Fitting heated grips.

Hopefully sorted the problem. I gave the unit a good heating up with the wife's hair dryer, apparently they can get damp in them if left standing. Seems to have fixed the controller as all settings now operate. Just got to get it all fitted to the bike now and hope they work for the upcoming Ecky Th...

Re: Fitting heated grips.

They actually came off a bike that was being broken up due to a smashed engine case. I will try one or two things later today and if not working then see if I can get my money back. I've already been in touch with the chap who sold them and so far he seems ok. But then again I've not asked for a ref...

Fitting heated grips.

I recently purchased a second hand set of heated grips for my Vee Strom. Before fitting the Oxford grips I connected them directly to the battery to try them out. The grips heated up ok but just kept getting hotter and hotter even though I kept pressing the - button on the controller. The controller...
