Hi Brian, glad to see you are on a descent bike again. I have a mate who has a "Y" piece for you, he wants R 500 for it if you are interested. I'm in the Congo at the moment and hope to be home in 2 weeks, I'll call you when I get home. Hope you have many safe and happy travels on this old girl
Hi Dennis ...will definately take the Y piece if it is still available . :thumleft:

Coxswain, I have not been riding mine much lately,  but this week the cage is in for some panel work, due to the wife not me, so I have been commuting (10 km) on the pig, the old girl can still be a hooligan machine. 😎😎

Ok ...so an update
Put a few Km on the new Pig and found the flaws
1) The beak is as floppy as hell .......fixed ....Mambat's  famous beak hooks sorted that problem out.
2) Gear Box bearings ...Yep ... the gearbox bearings are shot , which means , I have to go in deep and dirty  8)....Welsh ...Keep your phone on  8)
Other than that ...the old girl pulls like a beast.
So ....stay tuned for another gear box over haul post  :biggrin:

The answer to the "Floppy Beak Syndrome".....Do this and you will never worry about buying another front carrier frame again.
Yes ...when those dammed tabs break off ....and they will ..just make two of these simple hooks and fit them where the tabs used to be. No welding needed , just hook them under the carrier frame and bolt em up tight.
