    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    Well, have done over 300 miles this weekend. A few little issues to clear up but basically she is done. My wife has been out on it today and is still grinning,

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    A quick run to work and back today, think it’s going to do three figures when we go to the Isle of Man later this year 😇 Still a few tweaks to do but nothing to drastic. Would like to do something about the throttle movement, making it easier to open up. Adjust the gear shift so all positions...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    Saturday didn’t happen, bloody brake callipers failed. Still they are 35 years old 😁 New front brake system is now fitted and some other odds and ends done. Collecting the trailer this weekend now so fingers crossed. Other than some bodywork the only thing I would like to do is change the...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    fork seals done, just lights to re fit and a new front master cylinder tomorrow night and then off to get a trailer on Saturday. Sounds a lot of work but the bike end is easier to do than car stuff so only an hour and a half of pottering. Will let you know how Saturday goes, have also got the...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    No video yet but we have done 200 miles so far as the shake down. Unfortunately the fork seals have given out, this is due to them not being what I thought they were and they got overfilled ☹️. Will be sorting them out this week and trying again on Saturday, off to pick up a trailer with it...

    Saying goodbye to my K11.

    Could always turn it into something fun😇

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    And for those interested in performance, 0-60 is well under 10 seconds 2 up. Once I have sorted the shifter so I have more than reverse, neutral and drive I reckon it’s going to be nearer 8 seconds. It’s only half the weight of the car.

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    Well the first ride out went well, a lot quicker than the 1L manual setup. High motorway speeds without thinking (oops), steering is heavier with the seats further forwards so longer forks will be getting sorted. Anyone with a rusty micra, get some steel and have a go. It’s more fun than the car.

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    Thought I had issues with the gearbox today, it started to move when the throttle opened but didn’t go. After much swearing and pushing it back in the garage, removing the top cover I found the throttle cable set up needs a spring to allow the micro switch to operate properly. Thank god I’m a...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    No, it’s a standard cvt box. Gearchange is adapted to come up through the dummy tank at the front using a couple of jag auto cables at the moment, going to get a single run cable made up are some point. The only reason I have persevered is that it’s a good stable chassis, it oversteers instead...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    It’s on 14” wheels at the moment, going to go back to 13” ones as we are towing with it. When I rode it back to mine it kept up with my wife’s car going up hill from a roundabout without breaking a sweat, it didn’t have a speedo then so she was only going at 70 and driving at legal speeds...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    Bloody thing is fighting me all the way. Advice to all, get someone to do it start to finish or do all of it yourself. Wiring, wanting to fit battery lights to it. At least the tow bar electrics work.

    Nissan micra K11 1.3 spares/repair

    This is my 1.3 auto, made a couple of changes to the seat and front since this picture but you get the idea.

    Gearbox ecu pin outs?

    I have 1 last warning light to sort out, the gearbox warning light ( 1.3 withNCVT). I don’t have any of the original dashboard wiring as far as I can make out so would have to think I would be taking it off the ECU directly, or just down the line from it.

    Strangely enough it’s cheaper to insure as a trike than a car😀

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    And here are a couple of shots from in the garage this morning. Note the idiot light cluster between the gauges, one of the original warning lights on the speedo acts as the low fuel warning light. Unlike all of your Micra’s the aircon works off the right hand, the moe you wind it open the...

    The mighty Micra Trike automatic is having a test run soon.

    After more hours and money than I wanted to spend on it the automatic conversion of my Trike is nearly complete. The original K11 1.0 engine was packed off to do some racing somewhere and the low mileage 1.3 automatic has been fitted. This is along with a complete front end rebuild to allow 2 to...

    Flasher Unit?

    It’s a basic indicator relay, just buy a good quality aftermarket one. £10-20 tops. Just done this on mine as I am re-wiring it to bike controls.
