Yamaha RD500 7075 alloy clutch push rod and sprocket sleeve.

These are nice, a clutch push rod and drive sprocket sleeve made from 7075 alloy for a Yamaha RD500. The clutch push rod was a bit of a monster to turn, its 8.8mm diameter so had to be turned from 10mm bar, even in alloy over that length it wanted to dance and sing half way down and the deflection was big, but we got there in the end and its come out well. They have been hard anodised as they both run in oil seals and the push rod acts on spinning components at both ends.
