i thought you were not supposed to grease lined cables i have used dry graphite though.

Re: EU, in or out?

Can we get this right? Of the the £350 million a day we pay in, we get back around £160 million a day from the EU, so not the figures as quoted.

Petrol Tank Cap Seal

Minor thing but very annoying. When I fill up the tank, the rubber cap seal swells and I can't get it back under the two lugs. Once it dries out a bit it shrinks back to normal size. I think its due to the ethanol in modern fuel. Does anyhwhere do an ethanol resistant rubber seal?

I know Digger on here had a case done. Looked very well machined. They can add more meat around the transfers for tuning too. But you'll have to be patient as they're turnaround is quite long at the moment apparently.

Re: sealing exhaust

I always linnish the exhaust manifold on glass covered with wet 'n dry and also do the solid copper gasket (which I prefer) so that all surfaces are perfectly flat and then use Hi temp silicone to aid sealing.

Re: Missing mag side retainer : rebuild??

No, its there for a purpose. I'm afraid a strip down again of the mag housing is required, unless you've changed from an LI/SX type crank to a GP style crank, as it's not needed on the GP style crank.
