  1. I ordered mine from China with and it crossed my mind. They could be fine - or I got f*cked... Time will tell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Don’t make it any darker, it’s really nice as it is imho. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Do I need one of these? Going to unmount the oil pan for cleaning and inspection anyway, so... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Not at all. Two chain hoists and four men, what could go wrong? ;-)
  5. The Norwegian winter is long, cold and dark, but no hibernation. Expecting a lot of activity down there - from now to May, hopefully.
  6. ...to the basement. Today we managed to get the Greenie to the basement for the winter. Jeez how big and heavy this bike is! Thanks to serious planning, good friends and the right tools, the bike is still in one piece. No damage, not a scratch! No one got hurt either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks, Kiwi_roy. I will def. add that ground strap. And thanks for the simplified wiring diagram!
  8. This is interesting. Omron relays are on their way, so I will change them all very soon. The voltage regulator and det ignition was replaced by the former owner just before I got the bike. That's all I know for now. As soon as I have the greenie in the basement I will inspect the electronics very closely and replace bad sockets and cables. Make sure the earth has clean and stable connections. Is there any proven upgrade I should know of, regarding the electrical system?
  9. Thanks for your tip. I think my battery is in good health, but can't be 100% sure of it. Haven't cranked the motor much either. Several trips a week, and it starts right away.
  10. Autosol, an old t-shirt and a some patience is my 5 cents. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Sorry for posting in the wrong thread. Here’s the second part: https://www.v11lemans.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21058-30-amp-fuse/&do=findComment&comment=243306 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks, Chuck. The seller had actually replaced the voltage regulator and the ignition switch(is that a correct spelling?) earlier this year, so I don’t know for sure. Must take a close look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Experienced my first main fuse meltdown today, but didn’t know about it before now. Must admit I ignored the red charging light during my fast ride today, because I was so eager to blow some steam off on a curvy road just north of my home. Indian summer, low traffic, mountain area, clear blue sky, man and machine become one. Nothing could stop me. Not even a red light. Well, at last it did. It caused the low fuel indicator to fail, so I ran out of fuel in some rural area... Later on the turn signal stopped working, and when the starter motor failed after filling fuel, I knew the battery was almost empty. Thank god I had spare fuses with me. The fuse holder was also pretty melted, but managed to replace the 30A fuse. A friend of mine came along, lucky me! Of course he had jumper cables and a multimeter. He’s a Harley driver. Can’t hardly wait to get the Greenie in the basement for winter, and start the big makeover. An 30A circuit breaker sounds like a good idea:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Today i discovered I have a faulty fuel lamp! Stuck in the wilderness, waiting for my son and a can of gas. Indian summer in Norway today and all good. I also got a red lamp screaming at me most of my trip. Charging problem. That’s worse. Next week the Greenie is going to my basement for the winter and a full service. New rear tyre, new throttle house rubber on both size, new spark plugs, fuel filter, airfilter, changing oil and filter, gear oils, new Omron relays, etc etc. Wish me luck.
