    cloudy headlights and flaccid batteries.

    Hi all,

    Been a long time since iv'e shown my pretty face around here!

    Just got the bike back from its MOT and the tester has put advisories for my clouded headlights... Bastard.

    This has finally given me the kick i needed to get it sorted out, Does anybody know of the easy way to clear the inside of the lenses?





    And while were asking questions, Batteries! I've done the starter cable upgrade but want even more reassurance my baby will start every time, What kind of batter gets the best cranking amps to reliability?


    Cheers you lovely bunch!

    For the lights, a member on here or t world did a rightup on how he cleaned the inside of the lenses.

    Battery wise, I fitted a Shorai lithium battery. it has much higher CCA than the stock yuasa and the bike fires into life easily now.

    I've also done the cable upgrade.

    I've ordered a Shorai, so that should solve any issues with starting and this evening I took on the headlights.

    I didnt go through the whole washing out procedure, All I did was drill the holes in the bottom of the lenses and stuff some microfibre in there and they came up a treat!
    I've used some "carbon-fibre" vinyl to seal the holes and will buy plugs soon.
