    you need to get the two bits married up in the right position, takes a bit of taking apart, working out how the key will operate the switch and then put back together in the correct order. It can take a few goes to get it right!

    Ah, this sounds like s buggered switch. I fixed mine once with a bit of tie clip pushed in lower section to force connection.

    The next time it went I stripped it down. Stuck the key in the switch (for sensor) and turned on ignition with a screwdriver.

    That is far neater than any of my efforts :-)

    Clutch cable, bloody PITA. I hate doing them, even when I have a pre-routed one to use.

    While I was doing this little job noticed that the clutch cable was a little frayed close to the lever.
    Normally wouldn’t bother me but around 600 miles ensuing think it’s best to renew the cable.
    I have a brand new one in the shed so I will replace it over the weekend.
    Not looking forward to the job tank off and a lot of fiddling around regards Robbie

    Its an easy job Rob. Just make sure you follow the routing of the old cable by dismantelling it from the top first. the you can follow the cable through the correct routing back to the clutch. When I did mine it was like a new bike!

    That was a few years back!

    I knew something was wrong because I was adjusting my clutch every week!

    At the moment everything is working tickety boo. However, I'm coming with extensive spares and a decent toolkit because I just have a feeling......!

    I've even cleaned the bloodly thing!

    I've not got the panniers on, so no magic box of spares. Hopefully no one will rear end any one else.
