I was commuting on it until Autumn (sorry, Fall) 2010, and to tell you the truth I was well sick of it by then. Having to ride in all weathers kills your enjoyment of it.

The bike needed a load of work that I'd been delaying. Small but smelly fuel leak, new tyres and brakes, refurbished shocks, new battery, lights needing sorting, and a proper service.

I've just started it for the first time today, one click of the starter and she roars into life. Well, as much as a K series can roar. More like whine.

I must admit, I have missed her. I bought a Triumph Rocket III Roadster in the interim, which is brilliant, but practical all weather bike it is not.

One thing, it's been apart for so long I've had a bit of a jigsaw puzzle putting it back together. All is ok but I can't find the connector for the fuel level sensor: -



Anyone know where it might be?

Have I got to remove something again?

Remove the stingray, the connector might have fallen down the front of the tank.

It is usually cable tied to the front seat support rod up under the stingray.

No it's not.

That's exactly what had happened. It is by the headstock not the seat. Managed to fish it out and connect.

Just rode it for the first time in a year and a half. Forgot how nice it is.

Feels absolutely gutless after the Rocket though. Maybe I need the 1600?
