Re: Multiple Keys

What CovKid said, but be wary some replacement locks are a different key profile so you can't just re tumble the locks as key style is different

Re: LED bulb and strip replacement in same interior fittings

So they must be running with the HV circuit = not ideal as that is were most of the wasted amps go. As it is really simple to remove the ballast / start up circuit gubbins and simply stick the strip on the back plate, and connect the 2 wires up, that would be far preferable both in terms of power s...

Re: Speedo bounce or intermittent. For info

+or - 5mph, I would live with. If I take the cable clip off mine it bounces about 30 to 40 mph, thats the range, no idea if theres any +, but there is definitely a minus :rollin

Re: Speedo bounce or intermittent. For info

I forced a piece of cardboard under it, and now the cable cant move at all, no speedo bounce!! Glad you fixed it properly, without bodging it or anything :rofl You should do it properly, and use a piece of plastic ice cream tub. No point in a half assed repair, mate :wink: A good bodge is always be...

Speedo bounce or intermittent. For info

After changing the cable, changing the hub cap, and still having the dreaded speedo bounce, I was resigned to accepting when it bounces between 30 to 50 MPH its true speed is somewhere inbetween. I've been repairing the instrument binacle over the past few weeks, fibreglass, araldite, etc, as the sp...

Re: Lock lubricant

I use graphite powder, but only after I've cleaned all the crap out, a good soak in white spirit usually does it. But note you will probably have a fair amount of wear in the locks after all this time, so even with good lube, you can still get problems. I can cut you a new key if you get the lock co...
