It seems beholden on me to point out that I am in no way worthy of the epithet "Grand Gearhead" recently bestowed on me. The title is a result of sheer quantity of posts, many arising from ignorance and confusion in the ways of motorcycles. Quantity not quality has brought me to this undeserved title, and I can only aplogise to those venerable ones who have rightly earned the honour through knowledge and experience.

Br. Will, let not your heart be troubled for the honour of your new title.  I, for one, belong to the same club by getting in through the back door!  We, in essence, are knights with horses (our Bullets) but without armour or arms!  :D
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

Much like your sprag clutch, there is no guarantee that the gears are turning.  We still love you anyway ;)

Looks like I'm going to get away with it..... :D ;)
Many thanks for these kind and reassuring words. The priviledge is all mine of course, and please accept my gratitude in spadefuls for all your many contributions to my motorbike education over the past few months.
What a great place this is, nowhere quite like it anywhere on the WWW.

WillW: 

What ignorance are you talking about ?  You want me to open up the box of ignorance in my head !  It is like Black hole, even the rays of light cannot escape it  ;). The fact is you have contributed so much by writing helpful posts, asking questions that most of us may not know the answer to and keep working at it, is worthy of the TITLE, GRAND GEARHEAD - sans sprag  ;D

Did you post any pictures of horn and its wiring in the other thread ?  Sorry to hear about sprag - is it really broke or still under investigation ?
