    Evening All When I bought my bike I noticed that some of the large fairing / cowl fixings were chewed up and two weren't correct. Ordered some new ones and have managed to get four of the five undone but one is absolutely stuck fast and in a sorry old state. The cross head is non existent and...

    I have never seen reports or pics of the fuel gauge sender unit so as I had mine out today..... Access is easy enough, ensure the tank is empty or low and tip it up on its nose.

In onle 2700 miles this bike had turned the rear sprocket to points sharper than sharks teeth, the chain...
