Thanks gents.

A voltmeter is great but it takes time to read it and work out in your head if the situation is good or bad.
These kits do all that for you and are less of a distraction. An ammeter's easier to read than a voltmeter because you're just looking for the magical + current. But you don't get the overcharge and flat battery warnings and
have to carve a big hole if one's not already fitted.

Anyone who orders one, can you let me know it was here you saw it please so I know how big a favour I owe B50.org

Looking for this post again after a few months, couldn't find it in Suppliers & New Products so I went to Parts For Sale, not there either, then I remembered it includes a video... so here we are in Videos. What do you reckon MM ?

Just to use my red warning light for something, I thought it might be useful to have it show me when the B50 brake light illuminates while feathering the brakes in traffic, but this is a better idea.
Cheers Graham, now I'm off to buy one

Temporarily withdrawn from sale while I sort out a problem with them. The good news is that I found the problem before any of my customers. A fix for them comes first and then they should be back on sale 3-4 weeks-ish time.

Hi Graham, if I recall correctly you sent customers an email explaining that the problem concerned only the points ignition version?

Anyway I've finally installed my electronic ignition version Charge Warning Light. A minor problem I had was the smallish earth ring-terminal which I had to cut off in favour of a bigger diameter to fit a flasher stalk, the only available earthing spot within the headlamp shell.
Otherwise very easy and it's already elegantly served its purpose. Bit of a story here: http://www.b50.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6076

Hi roadplough

thanks very much for letting me know how you got on with it. The problem with points ignition was fixed over a year ago. They are indestructible now apart from not shorting the bulb wire on the CWLs that power a bulb.

Sorry that the earth terminal (they have a 6mm, 1/4 inch hole) wasn't big enough. But if I use big ones for indicator stalks I may get customers complaining they're too big. :roll:

I've never seen warning lights in the upper steering head yoke like that before? Have I been unobservant or did you do something special there? Are the ones in the headlamp shell wired so that the right hand yellow only flashes with the right side indicators and vice versa? Good for safety and avoiding sending the wrong signal about which way you're going.

That looks like a tidy bike with nice attention to detail.

Best regards, Graham

By coincidence or thoughtful design the warning light holders fit nicely in the holes meant for the wire headlamp mounting. &lt;069
Having discovered the good fit, how could I resist? Since they plug otherwise vacant holes and actually look like they're meant to be there.

I've used o-rings on each to raise them just proud of the surrounding alloy to match the ones in the lamp shell, but they're protected and work better, set more deeply.
The holders stick out below the yoke of course, I've adapted a chair leg rubber tip as a boot for the green one to seal and prevent the light falling out of its holder, as some do, and shorting on the stanchion. Your red LED version Graham, fits good & tight in its holder and doesn't really need a boot.

That's it. Confirms the 3 part decision inherent with blinker use. If I want to lean to the right, the left handlebar will rise which corresponds with the switch flipping up.
Patting my head while rubbing my tummy is not my strong point Mr Lucas ;-)

It came to me a few hours after posting that those were the holes for the headlamp mounting wires. Your use of them looks really good. The yoke has bulges for the h/lamp mounts that make the lights look even better, like it was made for them.

I like it! :thumb
