Thanks, problem solved, more or less. Rummaging in the toolbox under the seat, guess what I found? A flat piece of steel, with a notch cut in one end. Ha! Seems the previous owner had had similar problems and being the Rolls Royce mechanic he is/was, had made the required 'tool'. Spigots loctited, and running much better, although still a wee bit rough.
Grant, appreciate the explanation. Still feeling my way around this bike...
cheers and thanks
