Re: Hydraulic hose route on Spanish Li150 S2

Look at the winter model restored by soulsurfer. He's routed his (and now me as well) through the headset clamp bolt hole (after changing the bolt for a standard allen socket head bolt).

Speedo cable size.

I've got a speedo that an old inner cable I have with a 2.5 mm square end seems to drive ok. Is this Indian, Spanish or Italian size?
Thanks.

Re: Mmw/lth hydraulic front brake anti dive washers.

The're not dowty seals ( for banjo bolt unions etc), they are a flat washer with a cup shaped washer stuck to one side that protects the rose joint. Don't know what the're called, so having difficulty searching for them.
Thanks.

Mmw/lth hydraulic front brake anti dive washers.

Anyone know what these type of washers are called and where I can find some in the uk? They're the 8mm ones either side of the rose joints on the anti dive bar, with a rubber seal fixed to them.
Thanks.

Re: Reconditioning a light switch

I used some silicone grease on the rockers, on a couple I've done, and they work fine.
