    Fork protection bobbins

    Whats happening guys.. ordered some front fork protector bobbins only to realise they didnt fit due to a metal plate stuck inside 1 side.. My guess is previous owner must of had a 1 side stand you can put in & lift or something.. Any1 else have this?
    Any idea how to take it out or even what stand he could of used?

    You are jocking right? There is nothing wrong in the pics. The tube that you see is the front axle...

    My R & G bobbins have a spacer that sits inside the lip on the axle before the bobbin. Perhaps your spacer is missing or the wrong way round.
