    Ring B&C Express as they are Arrow importers i believe. They should be able to supply spare parts

    The linkage plates are part of the rear shock linkage located under the swingarm. There are 2 of them either side of the "dog bone" type linkage attached to the shock absorber. They are roughly triangular in shape with the centre area cut out.

    There have been a few cases whereby the linkage plates on 03.5 onwards RSVR and Factory have broken. Some forum members have upgraded their bike's plates with more substantial stainless steel parts as opposed to the standard aluminium ones i believe

    According to your info, your bike is an 02 model so no need to worry

    Hope that helps

    No worries fella ask away. The swingarm recall only affected the newer model RSVR and Factory from 2003.5 up to and including 2005 models
