Well I'd have thought the turbocharger was toast, but just got back from a trip to our resident 'spert and it's ok :yahoo:
Had it spinning on compressed air within 5 minutes of fiddling.
So he'll pull it down, clean and repair the wastegate lever and linkage.
That's one load off :D

Think I can make up one side of the fairing and hopefully get the local fairing guy to knock up a copy in f/glass.

Found yet another rock on the road to success :-?
"Would Sir like a matching bent fork tube to go with that?"
"Oh yes please!" :banghead:
Oh well, knew the tubes had to be refinished anyway due to rust, so the bend will come out in the wash.
