  1. Yep - same feeling watching that "no fuel" video. That little black Peugeot was a pain - I guess overtaking while coasting would have been stretching it 🙂 It is funny, as a Dane I can actually read a little Dutch and as I could read some of your descriptions, I would suggest Flemish? (forget trying to listen to it; it is like its pronounced in reverse or something odd - you and the Dutch must have a seriously malfunctioning tongue or some other common birth defect). Just a question - does the gearbox get lubricated when engine not running and therefore no pressurised oil to bearings etc? I'm not sure it does...
  2. Nice 🙂 I tried something similar in New Mexico in the mountains north of Albuquerque some 30 years ago after a visit to a ranch. Not on a bike, but in a FWD. I was so low in fuel when I finally found the road going south to Albuquerque... but that road (with asphalt) was some kind of civilisation. No mobile, no GPS, no proper clothing for the temperature, nobody to ask for directions and very little fuel. I never felt so alone. I wish I remember where exactly, but I forgot.
  3. To be honest, I only noticed because I always make the same interpretation mistake and start throwing tools because I can't find that stupid GREEN wire - which of course is GRAY!
  4. I assume a small typo... it should be the Gray/Red wire 🙂
  5. I solved the color change and patchy problem in a rather cruel way - spayed them with black paint a couple of times. As they are assumed to outlast the bike I don't really care about the problem having to redo a single LED again.
  6. Only thing missing to make this a good shot is proper motorcycle attire...
  7. Always something making life a bitch 🙂 You don't have a sandbox or something to test patches before committing to production?
  8. I found the wiring diagram. Not really possible to tell from the diagram if ECT includes a bulb test but looking at the sensor, I seriously doubt it. Also, from reading the user manual, other warning lights include information that light go on when ignition is turned on. That information is not noted for the high temp light.
  9. Do we have a wiring diagram of the 7th gen?
  10. As a pilot I got to say any last ditch system is worth nothing if operation can't be verified (like the 737 MAX). In that case it only adds false sense of security. I know, it's not a aircraft you crash but to me not crashing the engine is kind of important 🙂. On my old 4th gen, the low fuel level light is checked when ignition is turned on (note, only a bulb check - not a system check) - I would really be unhappy if that was not the case as I'm sure I would have ended on the side of the road on several occasions.
  11. Yeah - looks like mine... bummer! Have you torqued this by feel or with a torque wrench?
  12. I would not assume that - when you are at it, check and measure them all. That makes you sleep better at night 🙂 After having done the rear cylinders, I'm sure you will conclude it really is not that scary. Although access to the front cams are worse, it not as you start to through tools in anger. You will need a micrometer as you need the 0.01 mm resolution. Also make sure your feeler gauge is fine stepped (so you can produce increments of 0.01 mm within the allowed range) - those cheap ones for spark plugs won't do the job
  13. The story of old bikes - their is always the odd job someone did that went unnoticed for years. Well, always look at the bright side of life - no chance those flange bolts sheared 🙂 and all calipers accounted for I assume
  14. Thanks - hopefully no problems here! I now know who would be the go-to-guy with plenty of expertise - so make sure to leave your phone number 🙂 Hope you get it sorted with no more surprises!
  15. What a stupid problem to deal with - plus the stupid amount of extra work! I have a magnetic bolt in my VFR (bolt bought in UK via eBay) - I would really want to avoid a repeat of your experience. Do you know why it sheared - quality, torqued to much, age etc. As I recall my bolt has a pretty thin wall at least some way down the bolt - I already have nightmares as time for oil change is soon coming up!
