Well hopefully I'll owe you a quid then. We'll soon know - at this rate I'll run out of adjustment by next week. I'm hoping it's my puny fingers not being able to tighten it enough and I'll give your plier tweak a go.

You can buy half a pint for a pound - just not in a pub!

Sorry there's nothing to drink up north and you have to come south to get a beer.

Ah yes, of course, Becks puff juice - that well known northern beer.
And you call us shandy drinkers!

PS. You can get me a beer at the AR you lovely boy!

OK let's call it 50p.

The reason that the thing vibrates loose is because there's not enough thread left on the adjuster. So I looked at the other end and that's pretty much at the end of its adjustment as well.

So having looked through other threads (inc this one, jambo & bibio), the consensus appears to be the clutch lifter is worn out.

Can you get pattern parts for this or is it a trip to the local Suzuki dealer?

Suzuki only - if someone is making a better one that lasts longer I'd like to know about it.
