YAMAHA 70BETO tilt/lock lever.

Hi guys, Ive eventually got round to looking at my seized tilt/lock lever.
I managed to remove the two cotter pins from the starboard side, with no idea how it all came apart ( I have the manual downloaded on my laptop), the two collars were really tight, and again, I didn't know how it all came apart.
Anyway, it's all apart and cleaned up, ready for reassembly, I've ordered new nylon bushings but can't seem to figure out how the two levers work together? Are they independent or have I lost something? The two bushings have a 6mm ish recess in each of them which leads me to think they should be coupled together.
Anyone have any ideas, solutions or fixes??
Thanks for your time.
Paul.

You need 2plastic arms that are about £3 each that slide onto the arms , a pair of roll pins that hold on these arms which are pennies and a brass knurled rod that goes between the plastic arms and the spring that locks the levers how you left them. 15min job.

Brilliant that Davie, that's what I kind of thought.
So, i have the two levers, long and short. The two plastic bushings are maybe reusable, but the brass knurled connecting rod and spring are missing.
Is there a kit which will solve the problem? And where the hell does the spring come into it? That must be long gone.......

Get the part numbers from https://www.yamaha-motor.eu/gb/en/se...s-catalogue/#/ and order from Yamaha dealer (can even be a Yamaha motorbike dealer if nearby)

The two plastic parts are not reusable. The spring attaches to a hooked plate on the underside of the casting in line with where the plastic joining pieces sit.

Forgot to say you need to press the plastic parts onto the splined connector using a vice keeping them both square to each other and in line.
