Does the top box on new gt hold 2 helmets

Not an exact answer to your question as I don't know the topbox size, but even boxes that advertise as holding 2 helmets don't always do what they say. Depends on helmet style and size. They can say 2 helmets, but mean only 2 small size open face, not much good if you have 2 extra large full face ones (as in my case). Might be worth bearing in mind. Best way is to actually check one out yourself if possible. Hope that helps.

I have a JD D110 riding mower and the gas gauge always shows full. It worked for awhile and then I filled the tank and it now always says full. How do I fix this?

If the wire from the sender to the gage is shorted out to ground the gage will always show full. Other possible is a defective sender or gage,even on a new machine

Cannot use the floppy disk of my CVP 65 as it appears the memory is full. It plays new discs, but won't record.

This sounds like it MIGHT be a floppy drive problem rather than a full memory... REMEMBER to ONLY try recording a file no bigger than what the floppy will hold which is 720Kb.

NOTE: The disks used in this are not the COMMON 3.5 inch floppies, but the older 2DD 720K floppies. They have only one hole on corners where the new 1.44 Mb ones have two holes.

To USE the 1.44 Mb flopies do this: Use an opaque tape to cover the hole that does NOT have the write protect slider. THEN most omportantly DEGAUSS the disk with a degausser. THEN Reformat the disk in the CVP 65.

The pre-formatted 1.44 disk when formated at the 720Kb used by the CVP 65 will have ARTIFACTS between tracks since the higher density also have half the track spacing and the formatting doesn't always clean enough width leaving artifacts between the tracks when formatted as 720Kb These ARTIFACTS can cause trouble.

The 720Kb disks are ESSENTIALLY unavailable anymore.

I have installed a new floppy hard drive but my pc does not recognise it. how do i activate it? and why is the green light always on even without a floppy inside it?

Get into your bios and enable the "A" drive in the bios if you haven't already. It has to show up in the bios for it to show up in the device manager in windows. Start at the bios and work up to the device manager and reinstall floppy drivers if needed.

Try making a disk again - use a brand new disk and check it for errors.
