What are these?
« on: September 20, 2019, 05:50:17 PM »
I have just bought a job lot of new, non numbered parts from the US, purely for (what I hope is!!) a complete RD350 stator assembly that was included.

Of the other parts, there are some that I know what they are, but will have to research what they are off. However, there are some that I don't even recognise (showing my ignorance here!).

I have attached a couple of photos from the ebay listing. In the first one, what is the metal pointy thing that looks like the end of a pencil? In the second one, what are the straight and bent finger type things, mainly in the foreground?

Thanks as always folks.

Alan

Thanks.

I'll research selector forks when the parts actually arrive.

I'm ok with the (red) plug cap, it was the shiny pointy thing to the right of it that I don't recognise.

Thanks again.

Do people still use wallpaper?!

It will be interesting to see what the characters stamped on it read.

B&M still sell wallpaper so someone must use it, just dont sit on it you might just get up rather quicker than you sat down

Maybe that's what the lettering on it says!

I'm guessing that you don't recognise it then?! Possibly off a non motorbike Yamaha vehicle.
