Found this spring in front of the numberplate mount , any clues what its for ???? Also these plastic covers , I think the seller said they were some kind of cooling aid for the engine ??
Cheers Pauly , I was looking further forward, thought he meant they directed air onto the motor, not away from your nuts :-) There is a cable hanging out there that is used to unlatch the riders backrest - the rest of it is broken, might have to go and spend a few bucks on some overpriced genuine bits this morning
They kinda do both.....directing air to the motor while moving and directing it away from you at idle, traffic stops etc. The later models have a idle control that shuts down the rear cyl when idling to prevent the heat increase, yours is before that feature sadly. Paint your radio green and throw it in the long grass, they are not a great thing at all.

I would be interested to hear what has worn out on it Neale in the 120,000kms. Not so much tyres but mechanical stuff etc.
