    So! As many predicted, you have been forced by the HUGE fuel consumption of your boulevard cruiser to reduce the number of cylinders at your disposal! We all thought you would trade down to a V8, but you've leap-frogged that and gone straight to a "6"!:D

    Nicely diagnosed mate, and pleased to hear it's only a £10 relay.

    glad you sorted it

    Might be worth reading Wolfgang's post over on the Europe section, his old relays caused a fire :(

    Good work Steve. If it was me, I'd have no clue where to begin so I'd have crapped my shorts, sent it to the garage and been spanked a fortune for the privilege of having them sort it.
