What have you done to your Himalayan today (or yesterday, or this week ...)

I bought a Helite Turtle 2 airbag vest and spent some time finding a good place to attach the lanyard.
Ended up using one of the seat supports above the battery
Not really something "done to" the Himalayan, I know, but sort of relevant

Fitted auxiliary lights using some Royal Enfield brackets but struggled to wire them up. Any body got an accurate wiring diagram for a 2023 model scram?

I’d ridden in the rain a lot and then parked the bike up and went away for three weeks. When I got her out again the steering bearings had some corrosion. Dismantled, greased and reassembled and all is well again. Changed the fork gaiters also as they were cracking up. It was nice to find quality taper roller bearings installed as standard. It’s a shame there nothing really to stop water from being driven into the lower bearing, perhaps that number plate on the Indian market bikes is a good idea.

Mounted my GMRS two-way radio and wireless PTT (Push-To-Talk) button. (the white button on the switch gear is the wireless PTT)
The radio connects bluetooth to the SENA helmet headset.
While I like the SENA for connecting my phone and GPS I never like the finicky bluetooth pairing to other riders - mainly didn't like that it's always transmitting.
I modded a few bits and made a quick release mount work.

Fitted a couple of Himmy related Xmas presents, an adjustable side stand and a mounting bar for phone and sat nav. On removing the headlight to fit the nav bar though, found the pilot light lens broken. Hope super glue fixes it as it looks as though you can’t get the pilot light separate from the complete headlight.

Sadly it’s a common fault. There are some RE headlamps on eBay at the moment if you want to replace it.

It should be a separate part. It's the same part number for the 22 Himi as the 22 Interceptor. I don't see the gasket listed for the Himi but definitely buy the gasket and fit it if you can. I have a feeling the crushed gasket was the reason mine broke. My dealer did not replace under warranty, as per nmroadrunner, but I like my dealership and just took it as wear and tear. If you buy from Hitchcocks ask them to send it in a crushproof BOX rather than an envelope. The broken lens had no impact on the LED functioning but I replaced it. I tried gluing it but my OCD kicked in.
