Electrickery / Re: Battery dead from rain
« Last post by ArchRider on July 14, 2020, 12:48:18 PM »
Thanks, Bixxer.  I guess if things go sideways and I don't get it back together fast enough, I could always leave it apart and get a new gasket.

What about the "extractor"?  Do I need a special tool to pull the stator out?

I think you  are talking about the O ring oil seal. If you've got everything ready and you do the change quickly ( by that I mean don't go have lunch half way through) it'll be OK.

I'm certain now that it is my stator.  I check continuity between the three windings through the stator plug and it showed all three were dead.  Then I went and checked my Haynes manual and it mentioned that during stator replacement, a mandrel is to be used to keep a gasket from expanding.  It isn't very clear as to what this gasket is for and how to use a mandrel to keep it in place.  What have other people done in this situation?
Other than that and the "extractor" needed to pull the stator, it sounds as though this is a fairly easy replacement.  Can anyone who has replaced theirs offer any additional tips?

Thanks in advance

Electrickery / bypassing ignition switch while waiting for new part
« Last post by tigergotcha on June 15, 2020, 06:53:50 PM »
Ignition switch on my 2006 Girly needs a replacement... I resoldered it twice in recent years, this time I will opt for a replacement. While waiting for the new part I'd like to use the bike for minor trips in secure places.

I have a bracelet waterproof 12v switch (rated 20A, bought for auxiliary lights) I could convert for this purpose. The key switch does have three positions (running, off/default, parking lights), so I expected to find four wires at maximum coming out from the ignition switch connector going to the key switch. But they are more :icon_scratch:

I also noted (main harness side) that there are two thicker power wire (12V+), one is brown, the second pink
I just need to run the bike (never used parking lights  :icon_mrgreen:)

Which power wire (brown one or pink one) to connect to which colour wire(s) through my bracelet switch?

Thanks in advance for any tip...

No idea about this, but it is always fun to watch people experimenting. So please post up some pictures as you progress.  :new_popcornsmiley

Never considered it myself, but a quick read through the threads on here may give you some ideas.

As for budget, I'm not certain it'll be as easy as buying a second hand side car & a few sub frame mods.

This may help.

Am going to be fitting a sidecar to my Steamer soon for the dog, I assume that I will have to make a subframe, has anyone done this themselves? Any advice and info? I will be doing this on a very limited budget.

That is great, I am still waiting for SH 775 from USA, and will do Sasquatch MOD as soon as RR arrives.
I do get my Tiger over 7K sometimes but not so often, and rarely with full load of electricity.
I am having trouble finding good wires, but eventually will do!
I will have some photos of job!

Going on myselfs and others experience of the Global Postal system at the moment, your reg/rec will probably do a world tour before it gets to you :icon_lol:
