Have you broken any mirrors, walked under ladders lately? Did the wife get a black cat just after the Beeza arrived? How many Chinamen have you run over? Or all of the above to have the un-luck you have. If we go for a ride you leave 1/2 hour behind!!

US Postal Service isn't any better. For any valuable or fragile part, I wrap in bubble wrap, box it, then pack that box in a larger box with more padding between the boxes. Seems to work pretty well that way, thought it is a pita.

  Same thing happened to me too after only a week or two on the again- not sure if the light stayed on without me , or was just too close to the lens in normal use*conf*

 6V halogen which is fine that was two years ago....

re clutch centre, *doh* I just realised those two baskets don't go together, being different to mine(Plunger 6), just using the left as comparison....was thinking rivets had stripped from the chainwheel...or somethin', just saw the spline after a closer look *ex*
