Would someone do me a favour and measure the thickness of the spacers that go between the sump guard and the frame at the front.

Thanks

Mine definatly had them before it went away for it's six month holiday, I think they should be about 6mm thick but would appreciate confirmation.

It is common for the sump guard to "straighten out" a bit, when you come to put it back on it seems like the holes are quite a way off lining up.
It's very difficult to bend the guard back to its original shape, it may be that a previous owner has made the spacers to make refitting the guard easier.

hi ross , i thought that but what i did was put the 3 back bolts in tight then lift the bike on stand the weight of the bike helps push the plate up then use a 30mm bolt to pull the plate to the frame then put a 10mm bolt in the other side , take out the 30 and put another 10 in (csk m8 allens )

Thanks kirsten, mine did have them for approx 20 years, then it was stolen.

When I recovered it they and many other parts were missing.

I had it from (almost) new.

My TX240 has a sticker on the steering head with the displacement, frame no etc.
