Has anyone please got a picture of the throttle spring connections on the S1, where it joins the Airbox and throttle linkage, thanks.

It's very difficult to photograph it due to the location. The throttle arm has a 'U' shaped part where the end of the outer sheath of the throttle cable attaches. That arm has a small hole in it if you look which is where the spring attaches. The other end of the spring goes underneath the air box to the point where the two halves fit together and just clips onto the outer edge of the moulding. All very Heath Robinson!!
