- What inflation pressure are you using on your tires? I was using the
amount specified on the tire (45 psi max), since there was none noted in
the manual, until my mechanic said that the inflation specs are recorded on
a plate attached to the forks. I can see the plate, but can't read it
without removing the fairing or maybe getting a flexible mirror. That same
plate has the weight ratings as well. I wonder what those are. Anyone
know these for a '99 1200?

- OK, if you want more detail. Obviously you take off the plastic
shade or the olde worlde lantern so you are left with the bulb. You
use a white bulb. You make a sleeve out of black plastic cable
covering and cut a letter box slit for the bulb to shine out from
and affix it firmly (not bobbing) to the screen trim so it can
hardly be noticed. Insignificant compared with the 350 square inches
or so of perspex windscreen. You could use any 12v pea bulb (try a
telephone one which are very small) if you've got a particular
aversion to Xmas.
