Dodgy connectors - time to replace

Total electrical fail last weekend... watch this...

Hard to imagine after 17 years of never being unplugged and totally dry they can still fail. I'll be replacing them shortly ESPECIALLY as today on the way to work it started stuttering again - I'm not sure if it's down to this connection but it was fine all last week even in the rain!

No that's not a standard headlight - the reflector's been switched out with twin HID projectors and COB eyes on a custom laser cut mount. Did the same for my Falco - most awesome million sun power lighting.

Nice one - those HID lights look amazing. And what's the music?

That's IAMX.

I do need to rewrap the lens... in fact the whole bike needs a wrap after multiple drops have left it cracked and scuffed. I'm thinking a weird scheme involving camo colours. I'm certainly not repainting it as one more drop and fairings will need replacing at which point it'll get Tuonoed for the remainder of its life.
