After damaging my loom around the headstock a year ago, I thought it was about time I fitted the new wiring harness throughout the bike.. worrying, I found a fair few snapped wires, even though the bike seemed to run ok!

Did a shopping run on the bike on the way home from work to keep her indoors happy. Also got an email from the MOD about my bike history so I now know the military reg was 24KL46.

Flushed the frame out with diesel, ran the 405 on some dinosaur oil for 15mins and now ready for the expensive modern oil :shock:

Brilliant. You'll upset the traditionalists that think 100 year old oil is the way to go. By rights you shouldn't hear any complaints from them unless they write you a letter, by gas light, delivered on horse back.

In that case, I'll await the incoming floods of telegrams and prepare the carrier pigeons :lol:
