Best way to post pics that I've found is to use the Attachments tab in the section under where you type......and then select the pic on your device and place it inline. ...... 8-)

Just one more thing for now, is it possible, or frowned upon, to streetfighter these bikes?

I'd go for heated grips switch too!
The clicking is normal with a flat battery.
Because it's been stood the battery is probably knackered
but it's worth seeing if it will hold a charge.

Please start another thread in bike restorations/projects and keep newbies for newbies :lol:

Its a new battery. If its not giving full powet i’m suspecting connections? I will start a new thread where you said. Happy to find an active forum, i was/am a mod on a BMX for adults (We had them as kids) forum that died to facebook. Lost all the tech archive and traffic. Thanks for the help so far. :)

Nothing too serious. Renthals and braided hoses. Belly pan. Arse end trimmed?
