    I know that, I've had some. They are not as readily available as they once were, hence I was exploring alternatives. Having said that, I will go for Cobra Chromes when I need tyres if they are available, a big reason being that they are not nearly as expensive as the Metzelers.

I didn’t use the Dealer to fit them though as they wanted silly money for doing that. The parts guy actually apologised for the ridiculous quote for fitting, but said his hands were tied as they have to bill on a set number of hours at the agreed rate. He said that “not many people use us to fit tyres, and I can fully understand why!”
    Cheers for that.

    What is "TRANSIMISION"????
    Anyway, I've got a '95 EVO with adjustable pushrods so they won't fit (mine are set to 9.990" if I remember correctly back to 2004 when I rebuilt her).

    The bearing is slightly sprung and wants to slowly push itself out. Push it in with your thumb, at the same time getting the circlip/snap ring wedged in it's position.

    Look at your picture, centre on the bearing and look up at 1300 towards the outer flange with the printed numbers, a small grey protruding piece … looks like a trapped seal… dies not look right to me..
