    Maybe the pitbike loom just has the engine earth straight to the cdi and coil cause they don’t need no lights, so try earthing that to the frame but yeah I also have one of the yellows to earth cause none of my lights have a return wire so like this

    Yeah been looking at ali flywheels etc, crank only seems to come complete with bearings and conrod so bit spendy140-160 the ali loom I bought had a bunch of green wires just chopped one of them and fitted a round lug to earth on a bolt (I had assumed it was earthed internally and all the ones sticking out were for accessory’s) and yeah google seems to say they’re like A 55w ?stator so my 50w halogen headlight + other lights wasn’t gonna work found a led bulb replacement so will try that and see

    Finally decided to have a look at the cub again Tried a carb of a xl185 (fits straight in!) went good but still what I thought was a clutch rattle figured I’d check the valve clearances as that’s a common issue apparently pulled of side cover to get timing marks lined up and hello a very loose flywheel/magneto bolt and a naffed Key/woodruff Will source a new woodruff and file the rest and see what it looks like can buy a new flywheel/magneto for a couple hundred but hopefully not required vtec lyf!

  11. Get history or some such from Ford oz or there version of Nzta if they have the chassis number on record?
  12. Key on ign before starting they all need to light up (ie can’t just remove abs/esc etc bulb) and then turn off when cars started
  13. /ling saw a rav4? Today in there version of that red and a mittsi suv thing in a similar one reaally like all of them I think that’s what my bike tank will end up being

    Was only getting 3-9V, messaged @Raizer and he figured out I needed to earth the stator, now it’s 6-13v A+messenger fault finding Took the cub round the block, melted the fairing pretty good (need to bolt it in I guess) wants to pop wheelies in first A+ half way round it started chocking and I saw the filter wasn’t on right, tried to mcgyver it with the key as had no tools, until I remembered the factory tool set! idled it home and took a few attempts of carb cleaning and swearing to sort it made it all legit with a speedo.... great idea @Truenotch still didn’t sort any tyres-might try and same day some tomorrow
