New indicators arrived today. My lord they are tiny, and most probably not road legal. they are about a 1/4 the original ones and I can’t see these getting broken off too easily while off roading.
Also found out the relay has one of those annoying beeps so I opened it up and put a switch in there so I can switch it off and on. Off for me, On for a learner.
Some more Ebay junk arrived for the Sachs. A LED flasher and a cigarette lighter socket to keep my phone and helmet cam charged on the rides a head.
Pulled out the old air box from the Sachs and replaced it with a dandy little foam filter. It’s very open back there now, which is cool.
Also found there was nothing holding the battery in place, so out came the good old bunjy-chord. does the trick.
Oil change yesterday on the Sachs. Good bye old black oil, Hello new gold oil. New plug too.
And the first of the china junk has arrived. A 38mm foam air filter to stop the dust and wild life getting sucked into the carb.
Video with 2 notes
I made a video just putting around the garage and kick starter failure. Thank god for electric starts!
Come see the world through my eyes.
Doing some work in the garage on various bikes. video coming soon.
I don’t know why Contour never printed it anywhere but the external microphone plug on the Contour+2 helmet camera will only work with 2.5mm MONO plug, it will not work with a stereo. After spending close to $100 on microphones and adaptors a simple $2 adaptor was all I needed.
Contour, I can see why you went out of business.
Some times I think every one on Tumblr is 14 and has no real understanding of what they are talking about.
Maybe I’m just old, but at least I’m educated.
