Squaredeals, ordered one last week, £15 instead of about £35 from the stealer. (good fast service too)

I highly suggest ordering two, and putting both in there.  Tape the unused one up to the other one.  That way when it fails next time (and it will) you can ride and order a new one.  I would also be looking for another dealer.  That is something they should stock.

Apart from an oil filter which is still the same, the majority of UK dealers wont keep much for Girlies these days, even Fowlers in Bristol show the clutch cable as "Backorder, No Stock".  I reckon people need to start buying stuff up as it appears, A couple of months back Triumphant in South Wales suddenly had a load of new clutch cables which he was selling off at £10 a go, I bought 1, maybe I should have bought a few. :icon_frown:

Tim and I had a conversation recently about such I'm a fan of buying things when they are cheap not when I need them!! And as time goes on its a plan worth its weight in gold just being able to delve in my parts box,apart from the odd bit off ebay everything now is World of Triump click on the screen turns up 3 days later as my thermostat and seal just has bugger the hassle of going to a dealer.

Although while rummaging through my box of goodies I find a brand new chain guide for a mag wheeled tiger :icon_scratch:
