    Hmmmm the only thing dc on that bike are the indicators and maybe the stop light.

    There is a regulator under the seat. Then a rectifryer mounted behind the headlight with a medium sized capacitor attached to it.

    The bike in general is really short on power. When the indictators flash the front and rear alternate.

    This is all assuming it hasn't been butchered.

    In sterquiliniis invenitur.

      Yeah I’ve had a look online and it looks like it has been butchered. I reckon I’ll just drop it into Dale Britton and get it brought back to standard. I’m going to have to do that anyway to get it registered. Unles you can recommend another workshop. Never owned a Honda before so I don’t know who to take it to

        Took it out for a serious spin today. Fuck me it’s a weapon. I can see why guys love these things. Only thumper I’ve ever had before was an XT600 and this thing has a shitload more power. Power wheelies in 2nd are a piece of piss but I’m still not very good at it. Are there any dirt bike clubs around that I could get involved in?

          You should swear a lot more in your posts. I feel you are underselling yourself.

                Actually I’m not now. I’m going to keep it and sell the L instead. I just want my money back on that one. So it’ll be $2500 plus rego costs.
                Don’t know if the R has had a power upgrade. Can you recommend a good workshop to get it serviced. Never owned a Honda before. Pretty sure the rear lights and indicators aren’t standard so I need to get them replaced for rego as well
