    Lots of options, so you will probably have to decide on a couple of parameters. Hard cases? OEM or aftermarket? Soft bags?

    I've had luck taking the cover off of the flasher relay, running a strip of fine sandpaper between both sets of contacts and giving everything a good spay with electrical contact cleaner.

    I'll take a shot at it. My bike is a 1974 R90/6, so might be fundamentally different than your 1976, but on the chance it is close, here is how mine is wired.

    I have a 1974 R90/6 that I have owned for awhile and (mostly) thoroughly enjoyed. Every model/year has pros/cons (my opinion), so hard to find perfection. The '74 is unique in that it still has...
