  1. Yeah, for sure. Specific to fuel pumps, I had one slowly start having intermittent issues on a Seca 650 Turbo. When it finally seized up and I took it apart, it was easy to see what happened. The little needles or tubes or whatever that spin to create pressure were breaking up. There was a place for debris to sit and let it work, but when a piece would get caught, it would fail to start. Key on/off, or jostling the bike, would make the piece move, and it would work again.
  2. This case in black: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0833VKKL8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 First person to PM a mailing address can have it. Brand new.
  3. I'm agreeing with him, and adding an explicit point that I think is what he's saying. If there is enough power to run the starter motor, there's enough power to run a fuel pump. There's no logical reason to think that a battery would be bad enough to make the fuel pump fail and the starter motor still run.
  4. To put a fine point on it: A starter motor is the highest consumer of electrical power in a vehicle, and puts the most strain on the battery. If it's able to run, then everything else should be able to run.
  5. Yeah, that's going to be a bad time, fraught with peril. If experts turned you down, there's a reason. For this you need an SMD rework station, not a normal soldering iron. I have one, and still hate doing it. I think my station was $200 and it was a "cheap" Chinese import. Oh, found it: https://smile.amazon.com/Aoyue-968A-Digital-Rework-Station/dp/B077PYCYQR/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=Smd%2BRework%2BStation&qid=1606772956&sa-no-redirect=1&sr=8-8&th=1 Youtube it and see if you want to take it on.
  6. LED lights are never coated or use lenses to change color, because that doesn't really work. The spectrum of LEDs is nothing at all like a true white light, and indeed, there's no such thing as a white LED nor white light from an LED. You just perceive it what way after light has been passed through phospors, or combined as RGB. But it's still a very broken spectrum, so lenses don't work. If you have a red lens, like in a tail light, then you must use a red LED, not white. For yellow/amber, obviously, match that color. There is actually a difference between them but I bet they
  7. Somebody has to pay for your "free" medical care.
  8. Wyze V3 cameras have amazing night vision, still $20. Overall I'm not a huge fan for my uses, but they work for most. Below are two of the V2 cameras and bottom is V3, same location, same time.
  9. Hmm, I'm gonna go spray WD on all my brakes as a drag detector. BRB. Telling us how many miles are on the vehicle and since the last brake service could also help, but Oscar pretty much laid it out.
  10. Yeah, if they aren't LEDs, trash. I put extremely bright LEDs in my XX for $13 a pair.
  11. I think we need to schedule an intervention for Joe.
  12. When I see fire sale and motorcycles, I think Hayabusa.

    He registered yesterday and then immediately posted that. Which is cool, we're a resource and that's normal. But no replies is odd.
