Chrome (plastic) stopper

Post by stevew on Mon 03 Nov 2014, 9:33 pm

Got home yesterday and discovered that one of the chrome stoppers from the swinging arm bolt/pivot hole had gone walk-about.  Anyone got a spare one or can suggest something else that will do the job?

Many thanks.  I have ordered a couple of the 45mm ones.
Going to get a liberal dose of ACF50 and a whack in (after trimming) Very Happy

Steve, be careful not to trim too much off the retaining flanges on the stoppers. Coincidentally, I was putting a pair on a cb500 yesterday and got a bit over zealous with the stanley knife - consequently the fit on one of them was far too loose. This was easily cured, but with a bit of a bodge that involved wrapping gaffa tape around the part where the flanges were. Did end up being a decent fit and I honestly can't see it ever falling out - plus none of the tape is visible. However it would've been neater if I'd not gone too far with the knife.
