    I've notice the the pipe has come off the secondary air valve,tried putting it back on and it keeps popping off ,looks like the aluminium round the air valve has worn ,do you know where I could get one?

    Mmmmm not sure what to do yet ,what I have found is the pipe what goes from the secondary air pump to the valve on the manifold wasn't on ,would that cause it if it's been off a while?
