Mine has broken once again. I had one replaced in 2006, then found someone selling cast arms here, but can no longer find it. Any help?

Thanks, Chuck

Helo Chuck.
I bought a couple of spare arms off jakfrost on here. He may have some more.

I've not fitted mine yet, waiting for warmer days TBH,

You must have an aftermarket windscreen, right?

Your right, but I do bounce back and forth a bit between the stock and another. warmer days get the stock, wet and cold gets another.

Call West Tool and get the good stuff. They ship quickly and their stuff is machined stcok, not cast pot metal like the stock stuff.
Not heard of anyone breaking one of the West Tool ones, yet. They fit fine, nothing unusual about putting them on. They do recycle a couple of the stock bushings from existing arms.
