    Awesome thanks. I take it that the likes of Dick Smith or an auto sparky would have these?
    Dick Smith , Jaycar or South Island Components[/quote:16rjt0qv] Hey Mr Ling, thanks for your help & tips on this. I got the capacitor from SI Components at lunch time today (not far from work) and fitted it tonite. It works perfectly so whipped out the battery, battery box/inner mudguard starter & relay and associated wiring etc etc. Much easier for the bike to loose weight than me Still a bit of wiring tidying up to do but the bikes back together and ready for Sunday

    I really appreciate the advice you, Bren, Budda, 'Suoregnad' and other's have given. Just awesome!

    It will probally be the full straight onto the infeild sweeper, and right, left, dipper, rothmans, straight. Wasn't to bad last season..... even though I was its biggest knocker!
    sometimes I wish for falling
    wish for the release
    wish for falling through the air to give me some release
    falling not the problem
    when I'm falling I'm at peace
    its only when i hit the ground it causes all the grief!

    Been in the shed..... again!

    Hazzard offered to glass up my broken headlight cover in the fairing and fix the hack job I did on the RS125 tail. So while those bits were away I had a play with a half used can of Warehouse paint my daughter had left lying around and voila...
