Well had my mot test(road worthy test) Friday and she past but only just. The observations were

Rear disk worn
Front brake lever travel at limit
Head bearing movement
Front wheel bearing noise


I decided today to do the head bearing al i had to do is strip to the bearing nut tighten and reasemble ( how hard could that be) the answer is somewhat

My problems started with the indicator cancel system. Three rusty screws and wd40 and it came off. The guide I was following said pull the cabe until the conector comes out and disconnect I pulled and the cable disconnected on its own Thinking that was not good. I carried on with my main task

I came to put the bits back then I found that the cable for the conection on the auto indicator switch was too short no matter what I tried the cable from each end only mannager half way through the head and try as I might I could not get the end to connect

God knows how the manufacturing build was done. I had to cut and solder extra
Wire to make the end peak through so I could connect all the wiring

It's all back together but it was a right royal pain to do

Has any one else had this problem

Apart from the self cancelling how did the head bearings go? Great that you are now roadworthy just make sure you get to those wheel bearings soon.:claps::lash:

Common mistake people make regarding the connection. You have to ondo the tye wraps on the wiring harness and then there is plenty of slack for the connector to reach the bottom of the tube.

Yep, that is correct... Just did a friends and once you loosen the cable ties at the center of the bike, there is plenty of slack to get to the connector to remove the harness...
