Me too. Now I'm searching for two of those little fuckers. Not in the oil pan...
Hope you find / found 'em! :o

Found one...I had to take the cams and gears out. The second one isn't in the motor. I have no idea where it went. It's probably under the tool chest or lift somewhere.

Replaced the two crappy front ht leads with some nice new NGK leads.

I went to the Raven cafe on the A41 as the sun was shining..

I had a chat with a chap who said his brother had just bought an NC30 and he spoke very highly of the bike.

I installed my new EBC HH front pads and bleed the system from empty. Even with back bleeding with syringes it was a pain in the bum.

After a couple of weekends worth of fiddling around, found out yesterday that it still runs.

New 090s en route, the current items were made in 2003 :|

Did a few bits and pieces on the VFR tonight...

Put some plastic contact over the original Japanese stickers on the chain guard (still look a little creased and bubbly but much better than before!)

Rummaged through a box of old spare parts and found a small rubber strap for underneath the pillion seat (to hold my IOM TT stand plate). Also bought a couple of spanners to finish off the tool bag.

I'm pretty happy with how snug everything sits under the seat now!
