Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

Picked up the bike from the shop - swingarm had a crack in it (chain side) . It's all welded up and repainted. I had them weld a plate to the bottom of my sidestand (asked for 6-8mm).

Re: MMS GEN III MOSFET kit NO WIRING WORK NEEDED

Good work Erik :clap: :clap:

Ideal for owners who are not happy to carry out their own wiring, or who just want a plug and play (plus battery connections) MOSFET rectifier/regulator without all the hassle of wiring it in :thumbup:
You can't get much easier than that 8)

Some of us have fitted an LED bulb in the position light, it gives a brighter white light. IIRC it's a T10 LED bulb,
