The three yellow wires! check the plug near the battery where the yellow wires from the stator connect... If there is any evidence of melting or corrosion cut the plug out and solder the wires directly.


To expand on this check the wires where the plug in the rear case is. Mine were not pretty when I had a good look.

Rednax let me know if you need any advice on Australia I could probably give you some pointers on that heading home at the end of the year and at this stage planning on taking the wing too!

Will check these wires I have some electrical cleaning up todo anyway looks like the previous owner added some dodgy wiring. I've also noticed a few wires that have either rubbed through or are getting exposed near the plug end. I have been busy at work and haven't had much time to get the parts list sorted as of yet that's my number one priority so I can get her riding then fix the smaller stuff during week ride weekends

Talked to a friend of mine who years ago toured after he retired from the Navy and he also worked on HDs for a living as well. Even though he worked on and rode HDs he was an advocate that the metrics were much better touring bikes.

His philosophy is to make the bike safe for the road, tires, brakes and immediate issues. After this, small work packages so that you can do work then ride, do work then ride.

Will take you up on info regarding Australia. Never got there when I was in the Navy, only regret I have from my time in.

Cheers

Yes it's much easier to stay motivated when you can reap your rewards as you work

So checked the stator wires looks like plug is gone but I'll have to check how they connected the wires as there is some pretty dodgy crimp connections on the rest of the bike! So I've pretty much decided on the progressive suspension upgrade I just have a question regarding the front i need new seals and oil springs etc is there anything else I should replace while I'm poking around in there
