    Look forward to hearing how you get on.
    The seller couldn't be bothered to reply to me unfortunately.

    Ok so I tried to fit one last night and they fit the wheel fine but they foul the bearing cover on the front wheel because the tangs are thicker than the original. I think a bit of fettling with the Dremel should sort it but I didn't have time yesterday as we were re-working the air box...

    Thanks for the update Andy.

    I'll place an order (I too have a Dremel)

    Finally got round to fitting the centre caps last night.

    I found that they fitted the hole OK but the legs were not quite long enough to grip the inside of the wheel itself.

    I "extended" the legs to about 4.5mm by removing the face of the clip part (see arrow) with the dremel, now they clip on nicely.

    I'm thinking silver would look better, so will spray them when I get the chance.
