Pulling the head again
The surprising thing is that after five years disassembled to the last nut and bolt and a house move, the only missing item so far is the retaining clip for the speedo drive. Even that might turn up eventually.

I made my spacer from an 8mm lever wheel adjuster, had to die grind a slot in the flat of an 8 x 1.25 nut for cable but it works fine, have 2 adjustments (well 3 if you add pushrod adjuster), old bikes, fun yah? seems there's always something to engineer w/stuff on hand to avoid returns or whatever! What did you make yours from? Looks as if a lathe may have been involved, thats the one thing I miss, next door (to my shop) had a couple of them I was able to use, made all kinds of stuff. A couple of different welders, lathe & a milling machine & you can fabricate a spacecraft!
A brand new repro cable was supplied with my RT2, but that was too long. I've got it stored away somewhere and ended up buying a period nos pattern part which fits fine.
Apparently the air cooled RD350 shares the same cable, but those, of course, are in black.
Sorry, i don't mean to take up space on someones post--but just realised you're talking to me. Chain roller i added years ago because i have a long travel RM125 Swinging arm & RM or PE front forks [long story]. The gear lever because the splines on the shaft are stuffed i locked it in place by drilling longways so ended up with half the hole in the shaft & half in the lever, themn threaded it to 6mm & what you see is just a 6mm allen screw. Probably left the lever very slightly loose when tapping so when screw is in place i can tighten it right up on the clamp & be nice & tight on the screw.
