Re: Front spoke ring

Hi Rich.

Welcome to the forum.

This topic is more for an introduction about you and your bike.

Now you have got past the welcome page, you will see a section for wanted items. That's the best place to be asking about parts.

Re: Another MT350 restoration complete. Well almost......

Over 50% of the motors I get to work on have got a damaged or stripped thread! I use Timeserts - expensive but will last a long long time! 50% damaged ! I'm amazed it that high.
