Panic over, I’ve got to the main fuse to replace it and everything seems back to normal.
One strange thing I discovered was that both rubber bands that are supposed to keep both fuse holders in position were broken meaning the fuse holders were free floating with just the cables keeping them roughly in place behind the plastic panel.
I have just done a very stupid thing.
While fitting a new hooter on my GV 650 I allowed a live wire to touch the frame, there was a short arc and now all electrics are dead. I am hoping it is just a fuse and have found where the main fuse is located, although not yet worked out how to get to it.
Can I get an opinion on whether this is likely or…[Read more]
Go on the right side of the bike, where the carbs are.
See the choke rail? = Push it with your hand towards front tyre (push-slide the choke rail instead of pulling the cable from your hand lever)
You will see with your own eyes if the choke plungers are working , they will normally extend out while the choke rail moves.
Failing that, gri…[Read more]

Right side, you might need a shorter rod if you decide to do away with the gtr hanger extension plate. The stock rod is usually 188-190 for GTR’s , a fraction less for nakeds. I can’t remember off my head …[Read more]

I’m in Toronto Canada & I’ve a 2013 gv250 with 25k on it. The bike isn’t bad, but as Marcel has said they do need a lot of TLC. I’m the 2nd owner of mine & am slowly replacing parts as I go. But the issues I’ve had have all been electrical as the previous owner just thrashed it.
Fun bikes, & also relatively easy to work on yo…[Read more]
That copper ring has to go lol
Thanks again Marcel. I had actually turned to the parts catalogue and seen that it was indeed a gasket. Just wasn’t sure, because this one is welded in!! The fella I bought it from broke his hand the day before it was due to be collected. It still had the rusty old downpipe on it and had contacted me to ask what to…[Read more]
