I did a small change on mine and put the coil output for the headlight through a newer Reg/Rec along with the charging output. The headlight is then changed to the battery driven 6v. Yet to test it but hopefully it will provide a better charge at 6v as stock anything the headlight didn't use was...
The 1100 is a special kind of stupid with its reserve tank system. Still not sure I have that working right.
Not much progress but I put the centre stand spring on today. Used the old washer trick but still managed to punch the floor and bust a knuckle. My luck with fingers isn't good.
That about sums up how I feel about this bike.
It doesn't seem to lend itself to any shape very well. It is a small cruiser masquerading as a large cruiser.
That and the fact this has always been a "rat bike" leads it to be a perfect daily. Need some saddle bags and to get the exhaust sorted.
New forks on.
Started on cleaning up the front wiring.
Waiting on some headlight ears.
Doesn't need to be too pretty. It will be the new daily beater so I don't need to leave the W out in all the bad weather we have had of late.
