Talking Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Replaced the clutch switch on my Gladius in the hope that it resolves the c40 error I've been getting recently.

While I undertook the highly technical procedure (one clip & a screw) it got me thinking about mods for the bike.

When I've finished 'fixing' things like worn foot-peg rubbers and scuffed bar ends, perhaps it's time for a new look.
Maybe a different can and/or a non-standard headlamp?

Just put my summer push bike back together. Cleaned and lubed stuff. Cleaned out dust seals.

Just got the fit the chain, and new cables, and its good to go

Replaced my nasty red anodised levers with shiny black stubby Chinese ones. Why can't all jobs be that easy?
