Re: vf1065

its hard to measure with the head on but its a stroke of 33mm
and the bore measured through the intake with 2 bits of wire with bent ends is 44mm
not accurate but it gives us an idea until the head comes of.

Re: Villiers Throttle Cable Ends

hi jeremy
classic seagulls sell them, they are listed as "old villiers throttle cable nipple"
they have a slot in them to make fitting easier so are not exactly original
£4.95 hope this helps.
