Quick update

Nothing much to report today, I started disconnecting the wiring to individually test things, as mentioned in a previous post.

I’m fairly sure there was a meeting involved between a load of people to design this… From the battery to somewhere deeper in the loom is this strange arrangement of connectors and a fuse. I’m going to replace the whole thing with an inline fuse holder and a new plug.

Must have been a meeting

Just so I remember how bad the carbs looked before they’re removed and cleaned up, here’s a couple of pictures:

Front carb, right hand side

Rear carb, left hand side

It’s surprising, but they actually look WORSE in person. They’re quite fuzzy with corrosion and the throttle butterfly is jammed. Time will tell I guess 🙂
