              I think they were even slower!


Probably - but IMO it's more fun to wring out a small bike than to wrestle with a large and heavy bike.

Any road, with that "t'internet" you sound a bit nooorthern 'n' all, mate.

Oil pressure switch ordered from Zedpower. I haven't got a decent car spares shop near enough to take the old one in to try and find a VW one that'll fit.

Looks like the swap was a success - well done you!

Did you safety wire the sensor in place? :)
