I can't get one till Thursday at the earliest now dammit!!!

But on a good note, I've made a new wheelie bar from a 1/8 buggy swing arm that's twice as strong/thick as the previous one with a pneumatic rubber airplane wheel and I'm in the middle of re-doing the rear shock with some 80wt oil. Hopefully that makes the rear end a bit firmer.
Dam that's no good Alan. The clip must have been fitted the wrong way round and removed itself after catching on something while rotating. I've only ever lost one clip due to rocks in the chain. The wheelie bar sounds the goods and 80wt should help the rear a bit.
