Carb has a Black electrical cable mounted on the exterior side of it that runs back and up. Big black cable. Can't miss it.

Also carb bikes have a fuel tap on the RH side.

The allen key's behind the left hand panel, between the 2 relays in one of the rubber relay holder thingummies. Can be a bugger to spot.

That's Khaki Green LineX. Works great for surfaces subject to scrapes and scuffs and scratches.

Like my saddle bag lids.

The stuff is great for the bottom of sidecar tubs and frames if you ride in heavy road salt environment.

And for the bottom liner of Budgie cages So much for the 'cool' photos with the headers done wrong - you see so many like this - often done by Triumph dealers you get the instuctions in the box with the new pipe set - I did, when I fitted my own.

Triumph/Arrow should send a pic with install instructions showing the retainer springs parallel vs in the V shape when the pipes are backwards.
Easy visual once you know the pipes can be mounted two ways...

And yes my dealer mounted them backwards. They hated me telling them that...
