Well first off I got it completely wrong my previous post - curve #7 has max advance at 28 degrees and curve #5 is the one with 34 degrees max advance i.e. 2 degrees higher than standard. And yes Rick, I've also read the same somewhere on the web, no doubt the same post.currently have the #5 curve chosen but only because I had read somewhere that someone liked this setting after trying several others.
I reckon I'll start with the default curve 2 and adjust from there depending how it drives. And as you say mounting the box in the space that was taken up by the rear airbox certainly provides ease of access.
I managed to use the tab washer by gentle filing of the tab.the old tab washer has an indent on the ID that locks/aligns it with the key slot but it can't do this with the Sachse wheel guide sleeve
As you surmised the Darmah used the GEN light to indicate the running voltage and will turn on below ~12v & above ~15v thereby giving an indication of the state of charging system. This functionality as standard is provided by a horrid voltmeter that takes up yet more space (and doesn't always work) but can be provided by some reg/recs. I've fitted a small LED voltmeter that does the same on my daily driver, a Cagiva V Raptor natch, with the added advantage of flashing when the bike is not running giving the impression of an alarm. I may see if I can squeeze one of these into the original GEN lamp.I'm not sure I understand your generator light question but I will try to answer
Enjoy & keep it uprightYEAH! Test riding and relearning how to ride a bike tomorrow.....
