Spoke to soon about sorting the headlight problem

They kept failing again today,but came back on with a tap of the switch cluster !

So i had the switch apart again,and cleaned everything til it was spotless.
But still only worked with a tap on the casing

Took the switch off the handlebars again with battery connected this time,and again they stopped working,but no amount of tapping would get them functioning

So i gave the bare handlebar a tap and sure enough we have lights !!

Turned out there is a loose wire in the ignition switch,so guess whats coming apart tomorrow ?

Well after pulling the ignition apart,i found the broken soldered wire joint causing my lighting problems



A quick visit from the soldering iron soon had it repaired,and no more dodgy headlights

Had big plans for work on the bike today,unfortunately so did the mrs and it didnt include bikes

But i did find time to take the front tyre off its rim,and whip the forks off for fitting new seals

Now ive not owned a bike thats needed a wheel spindle tool to take a wheel off before,so of course i didnt have one today when needed
So here's a tip if caught out like me.
Find an airline tool ( spray gun,tyre gauge e.t.c.) and take off the quick fit connector !
The hex shape is 17mm and a perfect fit to go inside spindle,then undo with spanner or socket

Tomorrow fit tyre,and maybe do fork seals if i get 5 minutes to myself !

Thanks to bad weather,christmas and illness,its been a while since i updated this tlc thread

Since then ive resprayed the rider/passenger foot pegs,as the paint was wearing through.
And also the gear lever and brake lever,as seen in the pics below

Wasn't sure if anyone was still interested in this thread !

Anyway,ive sorted out the stator cover which had a touch of road rash.
Someone had troweled on what looked like Araldite,but it looked like a mole hill !
So as i didnt have a gasket,i had to repair it on the bike.
It got sand down with some 80 grit first,then i blew all the dust e.t.c. off with compressed air. And used a small amount of chemical metal in a approx 5mm crack.
That was sanded down a bit,and the rest of the bare area was filled with filler. That also got sanded to shape with 240 then 800 grit.
Next was to mask around the casing,and spray on some primer.
And lastly some nice fresh black paint was sprayed on

I did something similar with JB Weld during a track day. I had a bit of an off. It resulted in a leaky stator cover, a broken peg and a broken shift lever. The peg was replaced by a bolt installed in a hole drilled in the damaged bracket. The shift lever was repaired with another bolt. JB Weld solved the stator leak. The track day was salvaged. My TT600 lived a hard life.
