  1. Disconnect the pickup coil coupler from the harness Red probe on the green/white Black probe on the blue/yellow Should read 192-288 ohms @ 20C
  2. Stuck in mostly, but like Drewpy, out running 3 or 4 times a week. Oddly, see more folk out on the footpaths around the fields than Ive ever seen in the past. Wife's high risk so have to be careful, looks like all our holiday plans are up the spout this year, and no trackdays too. Running out of jobs to do a round the house and garden. Theres always the shit picking to do down at youngest daughters stables though. Oh joy
  3. I've had a look on the csmnl website for your bike, and I cant see any indication of a seal or sealant for the joints. On all the bikes I've had similar parts off in the past, I've never found or used a sealant there, so I'm guessing a previous owner was just trying to be doubly sure of sealing
  4. If its been sitting in a shed for some years, then id guess that the carbureters require cleaning out as the fuel will have gone off in them
  5. Yes, the fuse may have gone again, particularly if the cause of the fuse blowing originally hasnt been repaired. If it has, you need to find the fault. Likely to be a short or bad connection somewhere. Then charge the battery and see it it holds up
  6. The Thundercat has self diagnosis. 0 to 8,000 rpm every 3 seconds is the fuel level warning system fault code. Check the level sender/wiring/bulb etc for bad connections. Also, 12 volts isnt a particularly healthy battery, needs to be up over 12.5 to 13
  7. Im determined to ride winters whenever the rain relents, and keep topping up with fresh. I noticed a few eeks ago that the pumps at my local filling station now have the new Ethanol stickers on them. Previously, I was assured that the super unleaded did not contain ethanol, now the sticker says E5 which means it may (or not) contain it. Its rather confused the issue again, as Id rather not have it in the fuel I buy, but Ive been unable to find find out whether or not the sticker is simply a legal requirement, or the fuel actually contains ethanol
  8. Gotta take any chance to get out on two wheels. Looks like a lovely sunny day. I got about 30 miles in today, plenty of layers on so didnt get too cold, but water everywhere running down the hills and onto the roads

    Hardest day.

    Know how you feel. Our youngest left school and went straight to uni. Lived on the campus for the first two years, then house shared for the next four, then travelled every day for another two years. Worth it all for her, as shes doing exactly what she wanted to do from an early age. I've always reckoned that if you put the work and effort in with children when they're younger, they should do ok on their own.
  10. Im not familiar with the SR125, does it have a fuel on/tap? if yes, are you switching it off when you get to work? if not, the bike might be flooding while parked. Also check that the seal is good around the filler cap, and I would suggest that the bike may run better if you use ethanol free petrol
  11. Had a good day out at Donny Park a couple of weeks ago, Ive really been lucky with the weather the last 3 to 4 years. Put myself up into inters this year, reckon Im pretty close to the limit of this bike/rider combination. If I lean any more, the bottom of the fairing lifts the contact off the rear I reckon. The sliders I made to cover the hole I wore through last year need changing, but they did the job

    Have you tried those companies that advertise in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics magazine?
  13. Youll need to use a hosting site like Photobucket to upload photos from
  14. Get a jack and a piece of reasonably stout timber, place the timber under the frame rails beneath the engine, put the jack under the timber and carefully raise the rear wheel of the ground. Start the bike, clutch in, into first, watch what the rear wheel does, report back
