I have managed to squeeze the grip puppies in though and back off the suspension a bit so I’ll see what that’s all like tomorrow. Would have liked to have done the pegs as well mind.  I’ve also ordered a C spanner to jack it up a bit after the lowered pegs are on.

I have used a blade screwdriver - from memory, that circlip on the V11, the Brevada, Nevada & V7 were not actually on tightly - just slid off & on.

You need wee circlip pliers. I'd ride over and lend you mine, but.......

Yeah, I’m normally pretty handy getting circlips off with screwdrivers and thought but these aren’t having any of it unfortunately. They’re tight.

I've used suitable sized self-tapping screws to provide leverage on circlips when I've been desperate. It's fiddley, depending on how much room is available. Also used a couple of scribes too.
