Keith's Wikipedia link covers it perfectly. Looks like I need to replace it
then. Hi-hum.

They generally vary from hideous to dull. I'm not at all a fan of the
ultra-scrawny rear end.

Don't like the Vincent. Horrible back end.

Don't like either Triumph. Horrible back ends.

The BSA is nice as sculpture but I don't like it as a motorcycle.

The BMWs both have a certain steampunkness.

The Harley is nice enough but not exactly special.

I like the CX500, although the forks are bent. The way the exhaust
cradles the engine is rather good.

The last two are just UJMs with a bit of a tart up.

So stop sparking when the contacts open. The starter switch life will
be rather shorter without it, but you could add one anywhere. (at the
solenoid, for example)

That was the most confusing part to me too

The other part is I hate being interviewed by eks for an eks position
as you never know what the ulterior motives might be

Starter Switch Diode

Posted by fizzy <fizzyorange-at-gmail.com> on 30 June 2011 | 0 Comments

Hi All,

The connector on the wire from the starter button that connects to the
solenoid on the 888 has a small diode wired across it. During our attempts
to start the bike two years ago at cadwell, the diode got cut. Has anyone
any idea what it's for? It's going to be a sod of a job to replace/repair
it.

Going by car. Was going to be Ben's but that is a two seater so I
think we will waft down in Rover 75 comfort ;)

See you at the Everything Everywhere office at BS32 4QJ at 3pm on the
7th. Be nice to see you :)

Cheers
