Waiting for or getting the wrong parts are what causes most issues. Some traders are not fit for purpose. Most times i have dealt with mainland European dealers, all as gone well, with the exception of Italian dealers.
Had quite a bit of hassle with Italian suppliers. There is no such thing as a specified time frame there. Confused

IT LIVES!!!!!!!!
well after another few months of waiting for bits and bobs to arrive .I can at last say that i have managed a ride of nearly 2 miles without the engine seizing up.
I have found that the front brake pulses so i ordered a second hand disc which is slightly better but still not good enough ,so that is going back to the seller and my original disc has gone to hopefully be straightened out.
