    First mods for my Bonny.

    Hi rbirkey, i think the harness is made by Motone as in the picture above, but no branding on the light, I know they got the indicators from the USA as they were waiting for a delivery when I ordered it, may all be from New Bonneville.

    First mods for my Bonny.

    I didn’t order smoked lenses on the light kit, but I did like the look of them, they were happy to exchange them for the amber ones that I ordered, I have returned the smoked ones. I forgot to mention my clocks now have blue led bulbs, after one blew in my speedo. Updated photos. .

    Hi, did you have the same problems with the wiring colours for the light, I asked a neighbour who worked for VW motors and he checked it out with a meter, fault was mine Doh, the rear indicator earth wire was black, but the earth on the harness was not the black wires, it was the black with a...

    First mods for my Bonny.

    Hi all I have attempted my first electrical mods on my 05 Bonny, I bought a Motone ignition relocation bracket left side, but then I found out that I had the shorter cable inside my light bucket which doesn’t reach, so I read the post from Chris in NC about dealing with it, and to my suprise I...

    Bonneville dresser rail install problem.

    Hi rbirkey, Many thanks for your reply. I spoke to a guy at lings about the issue and he said to take some pics of the threads and he will check if there is a problem with the bolts or threads. When I saw the close-up, well-lit pictures, it was obviously a rust problem. The holes are open to...

    Twin clock upgrade

    hi, well the bike is now running much better so I got a used set of clocks, lucky for me the speedo only had 200 miles more than my own one so swapped the whole thing over, no need to fit my own one in, job done in about half an hour, very happy with the result.

    Twin clock upgrade

    Hi all, I've been tempted to get a set of used twin clocks to replace my single speedo, I remember reading an article which said that from 2004 the electrics on the standard bonneville were compatible with the twin clock models, so you can just plug in and it's done, can't remember where I read...
