Let's just say these units were not the silver bullets I was hoping for...

At least I fixed the fuel warning light!

I bought this float switch from RS Components and fitted it in place of the thyristor. I did check that the materials are OK to be submerged in petrol.  :thumleft:



Neither open or closed circuit shows a warning, so I had to wire this resister into the circuit to give the correct current. I first had it on the float switch, but while testing it outside, I felt the resister getting hot and I don't like things heating up inside the fuel tank...  :o



So I just wired it into the connector wiring. I rode to the garage to fill it up and the fuel light works. Almost didn't make it there and back though. The stall issue is damn persistent...  :eek7:

Btw, at the end of this journey, I'll have so many spares, I could start a bike shop.
