Can someone tell me what the correct type of clutch and front brake levers are on a Dragonfly please?  May thanks, Bob

Hi Bob,
            The correct levers for the Dragonfly are the plain type (non ball end) but the clamp split is turned 90 degrees to normal levers. The choke lever doubles as the clamp cap on the clutch lever. (See attached scan of the page from the Dragonfly spares book).

   Regards,
                 Eddie.

Smashing!  Thanks Eddie.  The previous owner has fitted the choke on the right side and it works back to front - that confused me a bit just now trying to start it!  I've just bought a super NOS set of the correct twist grips too so shall sort the choke etc out when I swap them all over.  Mine has the plain levers so that's good.  Bit smokey for a while on the starboard cylinder but aft it warmed up a bit it cleared - this was the first time I've started it since taking delivery a couple of months ago so not surprising I guess.  Going for my first run on it tomorrow to get new Avon tyres fitted.
