Cheers Tony. You'll see the real thing around the ridges. My bikes are for riding and spend as little time in the garage as possible.

Ooops, hit Post too soon.

Not sure what distances I'll be doing on this, but Port is easy and will be a regular trip as well as tours of the Tablelands on a nice day would be a lot of fun via the Gillies etc.

I'm 2 washers for the fuel taps away from starting it now and can't wait. Hoping the washers arrive tomorrow. That'll make my weekend! I also broke a choke return spring, but figure I can deal with that until a new one comes.

Cheers

Since I can't see if this was ever answered, since I am replacing my front fork internals - I am having a hard time locating the proper parts to replace the disintegrated "bumpers" - anyone know of a solution/source for the pieces I need?

Now I see what I'm dealing with. Monte, looks like yours were in relatively good shape. I popped out the damper rod seats and the remains of the bumpers (both sides) pretty much fell off and disintegrated just like this.
