It's OK, solved (mostly) I misunderstood the relay ratings. Bulbs meant to be 21w so got some and work normal now. Downside is they are so big my indicator caps barely fit lol. Tape and glue to the rescue. Did consider a new relay but I'm not much of a wiring fan and mine is a 4 pin single relay on a plug, rather not start chopping plugs off if can help it. And I'm in Essex mate. Another lad o know from a quad page on the book of face is getting his done by same guy next year..... Ktm 690 engine, he's insane lol. Just an off road slogger though, he doesn't really use it on the road.

Next job for me is fitting expansion tank once some bits turn up.

Are you running the standard size sprockets? I’m thinking of changing mine to see how it Affects gearing.

No, far from it because of the massive drop in wheel size. Standard cbr is 15/41. I'm running 14/32. Much longer gearing or I'd be changing gear every 6 seconds and redlining at 60 or so lol. Id suggest running 3-4 lower on rear as a starting point depending on size of your rear tires. Mine are low profile 18s.

What are you running just now and what does the gs run factory?

The stock GS500 runs 16/39, I'm running 16 on the front and stock Quadzilla 250 on the rear (not sure what that is). I was thinking of going 15 on the front as 1st gear seems to go on forever. I can get 40mph in first alone. Hardly ever get up to 5th or 6th gear unless I'm riding super sensible. The only thing I don't want to do is make it even more loose on the rear wheels as it just spins up so easily at the moment and will lift the front end easily in the dry.

That might help a bit but to be fair I barely get past 4th. Lot the time I'm riding around in 3rd eg on 30mph roads. It's hard to think of it as a bike when you're on a quad but mid to high revs are what they like. 1st is around 35mph for me. 2nd will happily yank me off a roundabout to 60 before I even realise.

Stock qz 250 is 14/40. If it hasn't been changed before you got it. There are also 36 and 32 rear which are common.

yeah mine just pulls all the way up to about 11,000 rpm before power dies out. I've taken it off road a few times but I'm thinking of getting road tyres for more road riding. The tyres I have now are useless in the wet with this much power.

My redline is just above 9k. I don't have much better luck in the wet even with road tires. Still, probably a lot more stable than yours lol, especially as I run them higher pressure, again, because they're lower profile
