    Hi there Squigglezz. I am not entirely sure, but a number of bikes seem to have a centre piece that looks a bit like a big grub screw, in the centre of the case there. I will go try and hunt up a comparison pic...


    Does the mechanic / workshop have an email address? email that picture to them and ask them what's missing. While you're at it, ask them who is responsible for replacement. I am pretty certain if it happened to me, my mechanic would replace the part and pay for it. If they didn't, they'd stop being my mechanic pretty damn quick.

  3. tried to find owners manual online ,but all i seem to come up with for this model is service manual , thats no help if ya not a mechanic.
  4. What model is it?
  5. Bingo! Old Corollas is spot on the money.

    I thought it was a 250 Virago. LOL. Yes, the cover plug is missing. I don't entirely know, because I've not had anything to do with them, but I think if that came off or was left off, the mechanic is very clearly to blame.
  6. Your mechanic is a dick head, never go back there again mate

  7. This might be a stupid question, but it looks like the bikes had a spill so I think it's fair to ask - was the plug there before the service?

  8. Fair point but even if it wasn't you'd expect your mechanic to bloody point it out and get a replacement part, right?
