Just a quick question here gents, I need the indicator for the rear of the bike, possibly also one for the front, anyone here that maybe have some in the boxes of spares ?
They are Stanley 045-6779 indicators.
If You have them and wouldn't mind selling let me know please  :)
Thanks

I have these if they are any use. Not perfect but certainly usable.
Only one lens I'm afraid, and no screws (they are a larger thread than those on the smaller lamps used on the 400/4 and others).
£10 posted. PM me if interested.

Thanks Sgt.Pinback 😊 Fortune to be spent - if You have it. It's moving slowly but will get there one day

Replied when PM received, did it get through? There seemed to have been a few problems with PMs last week.
Resent to be on the safe side.

Hi all, just another little update on what is going on in here - not much to be honest.
Indicator from Chris on the bike, replaced one that was squashed at the back.
I have changed exhaust studs around as some were damaged, I got a set of ebay that are m8 into m6. As some threads were damaged in the cylinders, I have re-threaded them into m8 and left the m6 on the outside. No pics of that operation but  :(
And just yesterday fitted new drive as the old one was well overdue. I went for a gold DID 530vx and JT sprockets.

Issues to be looked at now are : there is a rattle from inside the clutch cover, if You remove the oil stick You can here it very clearly - sounds like the was a loose nut flying around ?? ( there is not )
Next one but  think not as serious ( ? ) is back fire on cylinder 1 or 1 and 2. When test riding if You go into higher revs and then let go it would back fire  :(
Any ideas ??

Missing or blowing exhaust gasket can cause this.

Hi Totty, if You mean the  " copper ring " exhaust gasket then they are all there and all new
