Re: Ordering an unknown part! (clutch lifter).

wow thanks for all the help!
I 'think' it is the far right hand bit on number 17 in the picture above. The square bit with a round hole in it!

I'll set about replacing all of 17 then I guess!

Re: MCN London Motorcycle Show

Re: Oil???

Re: Winter is coming.
