I've just bought a 2007 MP3 250. Have been checking it out this evening and it looks to have a couple of minor problems which I wonder if anyone could give me any advice on!
1 - I've just adjusted the handbrake - it wasn't holding the bike still, so I unscrewed the top nut where the cable joins the caliper and that seems to have solved that problem. But the dashboard light that's supposed to tell me when the handbrake's on, doesn't. Faulty bulb, or faulty switch? Anyone know where the switch is?
2 - According to the manual, in order to lock the steering (i.e. for security) I need to turn the ignition key to the "lock" position. Sounds easy enough but I can't seem to do it. I presume that I need to turn the key from "off" to "lock" the opposite way to turning it from "off" to "on". But despite turning the bars all the way to the left, like the manual says, I can't get the key to turn that far - in fact I can't really get it to move from "off" at all! I've tried wiggling the bars and putting the handbrake on/off but doesn't make a difference. Is there a knack to it (do I have to push the key in, pull it out, or something?) or is something not right?
They are only minor problems and I can still ride the bike but I'd like to get it all sorted. Any help would be much appreciated!
