Thanks for the heads-up on this. I've watched a few of his Robot Service Tech videos and they are quite informative.

The fuel tank removal techniques will be handy someday. Wink

I'm surprised the rubber parts aren't expected to last longer. I had a few Japanese bikes from the 70's and the original rubber was much better quality than any replacement.

Consider where they were originally built though.....India learned most of its rubber formulations from the British, and the British throughout the 50s, 60s, and 70s, were notorious for having inferior rubber fittings. LML, methinks, was probably still using the same 50 year old rubber compound.
