    On the last few jobs now, new cushion rubbers for the speedo,headlight seal ,top fairing,screen and indicators back on. Derusted fuel tank back on today to,stuck 5 litres of fuel in to check for leaks and thought sod it let’s see if she starts,3 kicks and ring a ding ding Got some tick over and sticking at revs issues to sort but shouldn’t be to difficult to sort. If the rain holds off tomorrow then I’ll bleed up the brakes,then a quick road test maybe.

    Got the pipes fitted today,temp filled the system with water just in case of leaks. Connected the aux tank stuck a litre of premix in just to be on the safe side and it took more than 20 kicks but she’s alive . Ran up to temp to check for leaks,found a couple and sorted them,even got her to tick over without the air box on Happy days loads still to do but she sounds awesome and smells even better

    Sunburnt head today took the dodgy leaking fork leg out ready to fit a new seal at the weekend. Fixed a few electrical gremlins -indicators now working,although one of the bullet connectors is knackered so needs replacing. Sorted the non working neutral indicator,cleaned the switch and refitted with a new o ring and all’s good. Test fitted one of the pipes before sticking it back in the shed.Roll on next weekend, nearly time to fill fluids and get her kick started for the first time in 2 years...

    main fuse slabside

    The picture is the location on a 750 H,the 1100 location may be different but will still be around the side panel seat area,as far as I’m aware there is only 1 fuse box,sounds like you’ve already found it if you’ve been able to change the signal fuse. I would check all fuses then look for a dodgy connection or poor earth if it was working then just lost all power.
