It ain't thin ice really as the spirit of it all is to help a fellow rider get his bike sorted at minimum cost and damage to his wallet $$...No ego's here..just genuine attempt to help ..

Thanks Kevin for understanding the spirit of my post : )

What we have here in this " band of brothers" is so special..truly remarkable...how the brotherhood of motorcycling and our mutual respect for each other embraces the very planet we live on...

I'm proud to be a biker

Sorry been away for a few days. Yep those readings can help but need to know the cranking voltage (the voltage across the battery when the starter motor is turning over) to really tell us how it is. (I think I mentioned it in one of my earlier posts).

Even if it isn't the battery (although I reckon it is), it's a good piece of mind thing to replace it anyway as it sounds like your current one hasn't had the greatest service history in the world.

Keep us posted

I'll definitely keep you guys updated but things will be a little slow with my last 2 lab practicals this week and finals next week.

Since I moved to the hottest area in Australia about 4 years ago, I have been through 4 batteries in the bike (3 in the boat, 2 or 3 in the car ) heat kills them. I can say that strange things can happen with a battery with a bad cell. (like the other posters I am also an electrical engineer)

Cheers.

Does anyone know: do those fairings have the big open area near the lower fairing as standard?
If do do they fit a 1000s, otherwise I could look at cutting one.....

Those are the MY10 bikes Jonathan, they are standard like that and won't fit your bike.
But you can buy vented fairings for you bike,

I use them on my bikes, but you can get the road version side panels too.
PS. Do you ever get in touch with the MV's in Karratha ?

I did speak to a person in Karratha but haven't met up, the local motorcycle club did a ride there today, but my bike has a miss at idle and I want to sort that out first. I couldn't get the NGK plugs anywhere today, so I have ordered them. Damn.
