...but not too badly for a 52Kmile hack
Front sidelight is apparently the wrong colour. This surprised me somewhat, since the bulb was supplied with the cheapo aftermarket headlamp that I fitted. I didn't realise having a yellow sidelight bulb and a white dip/main bulb counts as a fail, but no biggy - a new bulb will be easy to fit. I hope. Maybe I'll get the nail varnish remover on the existing bulb and see if it takes off the yellow colouring
Front headlamp aim is too low. However this isn't a major problem because adjusting it is as easy as breathing on the headlamp, for which it also failed.
So this weekend I'll be finding a replacement bulb and making a new bracket to secure the back of the lamp to the bottom yoke so there's some triangulation to stop it from flopping around. The lamp already has a slotted quadrant cast into the back so I doubt i'll be a hugely difficult enterprise, just a time-consuming one.
The biggest ecip fial is a blown fork seal - they looked fine when I stripped the bike down over winter, and I've only ridden it a handful of times since it went back together, but the back of the right fork leg is in a hell of a state - literally plastered with oil.
I'm royally short of cash at the moment, but I'm also hugely short of time and don't have the necessary tools for doing fork seals, so I've justified whipping off both fork legs and running them up to Morpheus in Kingswood next week, hopefully to get them back in time for next weekend so I can get the bike back to the testers within the 10 day retest limit. Morphues quoted an all-in price of £70 for changing the dust and oil seals and refilling with fresh oil.
Fingers crossed for a flying pass in 10 days time!
