Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Sick as the proverbial dog tonight. But I figured doing more work on the old Higgins would make me feel better. Shortened my clutch cable and re-crimped the ferrule. Now it doesn't bind when I squeeze the lever. Drilled the clutch-lever bracket for a brake light switch. I installed a steel post momentary switch that I got from Radio Shack. (GAD they have a lot less DIY stuff nowadays than I remember. Thank heaven they still have the etching stuff, I can still make my own circuit boards.) Gonna have a real nice brake light - good 'n bright. And, I figure, if it's wired to the clutch it won't matter if I use the coaster brake, the front drum, or both. So long as I use the clutch I'll be lighting the brake light.
