    tomshep,

    I've followed your advice and just bought a regulator for a Honda VT600. My only question would be what do the various wires connect to? There are three black wires, which I assume are...

    Quick update,

    Today I managed to fit the new windscreen. I had to do some pruning of the edges after my initial fitment, as there wasn't any room for the uprights to flex forwards, and they do...

    Antoni,

    As I am rubbish at electronics, your opinions are probably much more informative than most of the 'facts' I've read about LiPo batteries and their chargers.

    Asgard,

    The LiPo battery I've got is a Haijiu HJTX4L-FP-1, which I believe is a sort of 4 amp hour battery. It may not be strong enough to start the engine on its own, but I've got two of them, so...

    Roger,

    You'd be surprised at how much the screen bends at high speed. I've noticed that the upper part of the screen bends back toward my head at speeds over 70mph, and although it's got quite a...

    Oh, and I forgot to ask in my previous post; do I need a voltage stabiliser for the lithium ion battery I'm fitting, or can it be charged from a normal reg/rec?

    In the end I did nothing. I didn't drill the hole out, or try bashing the spring to peen the edges and reduce the hole size. I've done a trial fitment with the three bolts and it looks like...
