Re: Headlamp Upgrade

Hi Nick
Thanks
Yes it’s a v - raptor, ive got a place near me that specialises in led lights for cars etc so that seems like sensible way to go
I couldn’t believe how bad the original was, probably ok for Street lit areas but not much use in the sticks
Let the group know how I got on
Thanks

Headlamp Upgrade

With the nights drawing in I got to find out what the headlamp was like last night and I was not impressed
Would it be possible to upgrade the bulb or in anyone’s experience is there a better solution?

Re: Fuel Reserve

Hi
It’s a 1000 ,
I try to get fuel when the flashing light first comes on, I reckon you are about right with the twenty or so miles as it’s not a huge tank, probably it’s only failing!
Thanks

Fuel Reserve

Hi All,
I don't have a manual with my Raptor, so I wondered what sort of distance is there left when the reserve light comes on please?
thanks

Re: External oil (?) pipe

Thanks
Problem I've had is that before my ownership
The bike lived outside and I think this is going to be a recurring theme
Thanks again for the advice remove rustproof and paint it is!

Mirrors

Hi All,
I'm sure this topic must have been covered but could not find it - any suggestions to sourcing some mirrors for my V -Raptor?
I have some non-standard ones on at the moment that are as much use as a chocolate fire guard and was wondering if there was reasonably priced substitute?

Thanks!
