Hiya Guys,
still trying to get the new rings in my KH and get her back on the road BUT as per the swing arm I keep finding "issues" – this one is more serious: It seems the top of my tappet guide has broken off from the guide that slides into the case (photo's attached). What to do, I really don't want to pull the gear side apart. Is there a way of getting the broken guide out... do the tappet/lifters rollers come out this way anyway or do they drop out once the cams are removed. The bike does very low miles just want to keep her going...

Any ideas appreciated. Best, Nick.
