      Well I have resigned myself to the fact that after two-years of trying to fix the electrics on this bike it is beyond my capabilities. I have removed the idiot lights that I installed, just because after I fix one thing something else doesn't work, and I assume this will continue to have a flow on effect till the end of time. So it will be off to the auto-electrician in the next little while to be repaired, hopefully will not cost an arm or a leg. Also looking forward to getting a more modern bike again, which looks like it may be an XT660X....

        New project TT600

        Seeing as how the XL500S is almost done, I bought a new project, but this actually doesn't need much work.
        This is the before photo. It needs rear lights, mudguard extender, some mirrors, front brake switch, chain guard, fork protectors, fuel line clamps, some road tyres and a working speedometer for road rego.
        Looking forward to riding again after about a 2 year break...



        P.S. XL500S is at Custom Motorcycle Electrics.
