Re: GSA front brake switch

Sounds like sledgegreen has the best idea, a small relay suitably rated for the current that it is switching would be pretty cheap on Ebay or similar.

Re: 10 Years Ago This Month

I also joined in 2011 and remember that I had the first copy of the ABR magazine, so did the magazine first come out in 2011?

Re: New Member Joined With A Question In Mind

I think from all points of view, its too risky.
I used to a bit of cycling and there was this guy who used to turn up for the racing with his bike mounted on a metal frame mounted on his motorbike.

Re: Open Invite------- GERMANY, IN JUNE

Have a good time, was down at the Berncastle wine festival last year and did a few runs up and down the Mosel, do not forget to pop into the Technich museum at Speyer so that you can go into the German U boat and the Russian Space shuttle.

S10 poor idling and missfre at speed problem

Finally got to the bottom of this problem which should only affect the XT1200Z in the years 2010 to 2013 due to faulty plating on the wiring contacts.
