Thanks. Just one request. when posting just add that it is a used ,old spindle. This will reduce the hassles with customs at this end.
Take care & thanks

Sent it today, registered post, hope it will arrive within decent time. As for a new tour to India, would love to, but health is not the best regarding long travels, and the same with my motorcycle mates ! Wish I was 18 again... at that age we did nor realize how lucky we were !

Regards

Hi A10 GF
Does the rocker spindle parcel have a tracking no? That way I could keep tabs on it & see if its stuck up in customs
Thanks

Hi A10GF

The spindle arrived today, 12 days after leaving Oslo. As you had predicted, the North Korean angle helped enormously & the parcel just whizzed thru customs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. It actually landed in Delhi from Norway,& then came on to Pune ( 1800 kms South )
Thanks a million for your generosity. Maybe some day I can reciprocate . Ive already mounted the spindle & will hopefully fire up the engine tomorrow. Shall keep you posted
Take care
Anji

Hi Josh

See, were not that bad. Its the postal service at your end, me thinks. 12 days from Oslo to Pune via Delhi is NOT BAD??
Take care

Excellent, glad the part fitted fine, and glad to be of help.

The spindle came off a complete spare rockerbox, acquired from ebay US as I needed a rocker because of a chip in one of mine. So the spindle have traveled quite some distance before getting back into use.
