Have a look at the picture on this page:

Yes, I found that and it all looked too familiar, which is one reason why I chopped it in, the main reason though was that I haven't had a bike for nearly seven weeks now and due to the workshop being ploughed out it could be another 5 weeks before it is sorted, if it ever does get sorted  :155:
I'll never be old enough to know better !

Leaves one to wonder if this is really a weakness from shoddy machining or a design fault (or both). I guess the type of coolant used could also be a factor.
