It's the right one I have. These are rarer than rocking horse poo but I owe you a favour so to you £85. That's a too you price ONLY, anyone else is paying a lot more.

As for your budget, I've seen kids in a playground with more spending money Phil  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Isn't that a pre K2 ear Ken? The K2 has the indicator mount in the middle of the ear? I have one ear from a k1 but don't know what side but am away in motorhome at the moment so can't check (ie, might be able to make a pair)
Thanks Ken

BTW, how do you know it was 10 million, did you count them?


 It's an approximation from weighing them, you're never going to be accurate when they're this small but as soon as they get to about 10mm you can send them through a counter but you'd need to net the ponds to get them out again and kill loads in the process. Bigger the fish the bigger the eggs and the less there are of them but thanks to the beauty of research students making tables for num,bers against size and weight, we can near as dammit workout what's being stocked to work out a feed ragime and to work out a feed conversion rate or FCR.
This allows you to see how you're doing and if it's what the fish need, that way adjustments can be made to bring FCR's up and more fish for your investment.

Yeah that’s a K1 ear, as I said the US did things we didn’t in Europe so I’m not surprised that they had the indicator in the middle of the ear, stupid really as it’s thin metal there and the vibrations would just shear the metal eventually IMO.

The K2 has reinforcement behind the mount extending to the headlamp mount - prevents me being able to get the crease out at the headlight mount area unfortunately

What was wrong with where it was originally? makes no sense to change it for change sake.

They changed the indicator mount on the 500 and 750 as, they were having too many cracked headlight bowls  ;)

Finally after having no phone for over a week, I've managed to get hold of the scrap bike place over here and although he doesnt let folk walk about his yard, as I'm a forum memeber 8) and have come such a long way (just to see him he thinks :D) He's letting me in for the morning next wednesday at 9:30.

I shall have my best hunting trousers on and I've even got a new socket set coutesy of the farm to go scrounge for bits..
