Oil filled handle bars problems

Post  Mauser on Mon Nov 25, 2013 7:10 pm

Struggling to maintain decent flow through the bars ?, the warm up OK closest to the infeed connector but are less warm where the oil leaves the bars...struggling to work out whats wrong ?.
Also might need some high temp glue for the grips; I have the feeling the heat is softening the glue ?.

It is the switches Mauser, they drain the temperature. As you (should!) know the coriolis effect in your part of the word converts heat to electricity, which on its turn is shed in light - at least if you've got the lights on, otherwise it will be heat however in other places than the bars.
Hence my question: are there any lights on Mauser?
Me thinks a fuse has blown though, which should be easy to find: look to tea spillings?

I don't really have switches Burpy...just a kill switch US spec and such listen up 
As for lights only have the dipped plastic 35W main beam and 3.4W tail light so don't think they are messing up the oil flow ?....I have tried more tea but it doesn't help Neutral

I tried that but oil hoses stop the bars from turning ?

Make them longer...put some chips in the handlebars to absorb the oil and hold it in the ends....please you have an emergency snack if you get stuck out in the snow

Aurora,

Mauser's NOT drinking tea for a change, he's clearly well oiled and talks/writes about anything - bar nothing Bump
