Bike back from recall
« on: March 09, 2014, 04:18:58 pm »
Well it's back, and because I am a worry wart. The new ECU, stand bracket and valve gear I expected there to be things not working or faults. Not at all, everything is fine it's running like a dream and just returned from a 100 mile run about, it's such a good bike to ride.

I notice that the stand mod bracket is to stop the stand from breaking the stop and folding forward. On closer examination I wonder if it could be utilised
to padlock the main stand in the down position, that may be a good anti-theft device, as long as you don't forget.

Photo of the new bracket. The trick would be to work out how to utilise a padlock to lock the bracket and the stand leg together

thanks, sorry I did not express myself properly, in fact what I'm interested in is to see how the padlock will be fitted on the centre stand and the bracket  :431:

Just check for any coolant leaks.....

Mine came back from tha factory.... Rode it home and it was piddling on the floor. Bike is back at the dealers now who are having to strip it all down again to find and fix the leak!  :233: :233:

Best day of the year so far and the bike is in dock AND missed out on the Ponderosa run! Grrrr
