Some on e-bay, Indian but better than waiting for ever for one to turn up.

Did you order a brake arm Thackers? I know you've wanted one for a while so wondered if you'd seized the opportunity.

Hi mate, yes I finally ordered one off Ebay (from India) and i'm waiting on it's arrival. There was a bit of a delay in ordering as I rang Scooter Surgery following a tip off on another forum that showed them having one on their on-line shop. Useless really, their site is at least 3 years old and they didn't know if it was still in a box of bits:roll: I'm still waiting for a call back (nearly 3 weeks) Mad bounce Sleep I'll post up when it arrives from India on quality, fit etc.

The item arrived today and is total garbage surprise, surprise . The two sides are completely different where the adjuster will fit and bent too, I think if I try to fettle it, it's going to snap plus the splines look to me like they will slip on the brake cam.

My search for this little item continues Sad

Worth a try-better than just hoping one turns up I suppose. They do make a massive difference to adjustment and when I can be bothered, will weld a couple of clutch arms together and adapt so I can adjust the clutch easily. Good luck with your hunt - be worth it when you get one.
