I rang Yamaha again. The guy gave me a link to a third party that supplies the bracket. But it's in the States. He said again, they just use a piece of 2x2 tied with a bungee!!

Is this a modified version of their "Shock link" system? I tow with a 110 Landrover it can be a bit snatchy if you are on and off the brakes a bit. Technique might help but we all get tried and its always the fool infront who makes you brake sharpish!

Did anyone take a look at the stay mentioned and linked earlier looks reasonable never seen them used here though?

New boat is here, very happy!

..nowt wrong with a bit o'transmission slap.. good ol' Landies, don't you love 'em to bits?
My 110 (less than 30,000 miles old) is currently waiting for two new rear halfshafts and two drive flanges.............2 week back order for spare parts for a current vehicle! Fantastic! If your Defender is under three years old pull off the rear flange "hub cap" and see if they are corroded. If they are, off to your dealer you go...
