My recent close up inspection of some gravel in North Yorkshire revealed a couple of minor details others may find useful:

·         The snapped off riders peg can be functionally (if imperfectly) replaced with the pillion peg. The ride may then continue.

·         The circlips which hold the pivot pins in are an utter swine to deal with at the roadside when you don’t have access to the proper tool.

·         Circlip pliers would be pretty pointless as part of the bikes general tool kit, there are no other circlips used on items you would typically need to play with.

I have therefore replaced the pin and circlip set up with standard (stainless) bolts and nyloc nuts of the type used elsewhere on the bike.
