Motorcycle wiring, motogadget, servicing & detailing at mono motorcycles.
Complex wiring projects, starting/charging investigations, electrics, wiring, servicing & detailing have all featured in the mono motorcycles week.
With the Victory 8 Ball set to dominate this week, we were well prepared to ensure we had set aside plenty of time to break the back of the initial wiring.
Monday saw Daniel making a start on checking which components of the loom were needed, harvesting essential wires & beginning to remove both looms; the chassis loom & the engine management. In addition, the beginning of additional fabrication works were undertaken, by re-positioning the battery in the modified bracket.
Once the looms were removed from the Victory, Daniel set about rebuilding the essential wiring for the engine management system.
Once the loom had been built, Daniel set about ascertaining where he would fit the motogadget m.blue unit. As the Victory is mostly naked, we had to ensure that the m.unit would not be exposed to external influences & it was therefore agreed with our customer to fabricate a new bracket for the m.unit to be bolted to.
As we moved towards the end of the week, we started to fir the new starter solenoid.
Mid week we welcomed a Triumph Speed Triple 1050 for a full service & machine detailing.
As the Triumph had been ridden a lot throughout the winter, there was considerable salt, oil, grease & other road debris mixed together & all over the engine & underbelly.
Using an industrial de-greaser first, Daniel then used a Snow Foam wash twice to pull as many impurities form the panels, engine casings, wheels & the underbelly of the Triumph.
Once the Triumph was grease free, Daniel ensured she was fully machine detailed, the engine casing & metal work polished & an ACF50 treatment applied to the wheels & underside of the motorcycle.
We welcomed another Triumph to the workshop on Thursday in the shape of a Tiger Sport 1050.
The Tiger came to the workshop with an intermittent starting fault & charging issues.
Daniel, having stripped the motorcycle & removed the battery; set about replacing earth cables which the customer had supplied to us. Furthermore, Daniel then removed the switch gear & cleaned the start & clutch switches. He rewired the SATNAV with 5amp fuse line & fitted a new charge lead for a NOCO Optimate Charger.
Once the switching was re-fitted, Daniel checked everything was OK & undertook a full TEXA Diagnostic scan, to ensure there were no faults, of which there were none.
We have now managed to get the Triumph to start every time & even from cold after leaving her over night.
We ended our week with a regular customer bringing his BSA Lightning to the workshop for a spot of welding.
Our events calendar really begins with earnest now as we have Jamie Gladman’s Airbrushed Art Showcase on Sunday 3rd March (10am-2pm) & from Sunday the 28th April, our very popular Breakfast Club’s begin. We look forward to welcoming friends, family, supporters, customers & many new faces in 2019.
