With limited tools, thought I'd show some pictures of how I reduced the thickness of my mudguard spacers....quite exciting to do!

About the front guard, supposedly to fit a 19 inch tyre mine fits a 20 tyre perfectly without reducing the stay height :ban

I love the name- Motogadget! But it's labeled as a tachometer (?). And what's in the "window" at the bottom?

Scoff away, this has been going on so long I am banned from talking about it with some of my biking mates, there is very little urine to extract now and I have grown a very thick skin...the government has changed the pension laws and next year I can cash in my pension and spend it on what I want. I am thinking of paying the wife to finish the bathroom so I can play in the garage.

Minety, sorry to put a negative spin on this idea, but if you do the above and spend all your pension pot now, pray tell what are you and your wife going to live on when you both reach retirement age or are you going to play into the government's hands by continuing to work to the end and never retire (less time in the garage) - a no no in my books

I've never done a great deal of work now anyway Rich and having given shed loads of my hard earned cash to a wunch of bankers in the City and seen them get fat while wrecking the economy (See Lemmy's vid "Get Back In Line") I don't trust any government or financial institution any more....I could buy the wife and possibly the daughters fur coats and make them keep me for a change or possibly become a consultant, preacher, guru or hermit and live in a Vango Force Ten on various rally sites dishing out words of wisdom and sillyness in exchange for food, beer and petrol.....or I might just to live for ever.

Was that Minety's brief answer regarding "what's in the window"? Glad I didn't ask for the complete rundown... :lol:

What "sensors" are needed external to the Motogadget? (I couldn't find the answer on their website). What type of sensor for gear-position?

I'm not using most of the functions, tacho speed, oil temp and high beam light are the only ones, but no doubt I will at some time (in the future) play with the other functions. The temp sensor is in the oil tank
IMG_3471.JPG
The sensors are on this page.

The gear indicator works by inputting the gear ratios and because it knows the bike's speed and engine rpm it works out which gear you are in, I think it is clever enough to work out if you are in neutral as well.

I have modified the Lucas switchgear so that I can use the buttons on the LH bar for dip/main, horn and a programming button, the lights on/off switch is on the ignition switch (an old aircraft switch, no key) located beneath the tank. Dip/main driven via a soild state relay located insde the headlamp cowl.

The rusty looking bits on the frame are sawdust covered ( :roll: ) waxoil and the bike is in a heated garage, it is and will be, very shiny all over!

You know you can come for a weeks "holiday" and finish all those odd jobs off.
Give it another couple of months and I should be fit enough to start working again and help you.
I'm so glad I was able to use my pension or I'd never had survived being unable to work for so long.
