    Nursing/care supply stores will have them or your local pharmacy may well be able to order you one in. You could also try asking at a local vets to see if they have any as people do use them for feeding young animals. Make sure to get the catheter-type.

    I got my 70mL horse syringe at a farm supply store. Not in the UK though.

    Ive just been to halfords, the pet shop, motor spare shop and the biggest they had was 12ml..
    Looks like i might have to go to the local rehap centre where the druggies go.. although i would imagine a 50ml syringe would be an overdose

    Not a pet shop, a vet or vet supply company. Check your Yellow Pages and call around. Same goes for pharmacies and pharmacutical supplies.

    You can get a 100ml syringe for under 3 at this online vet supplier.

    Ask at Boots chemist as they sell the 10ml, and the 100ml ones that SteveUK talks about for 4.99. It's described as for "irrigation" purposes so includes two stepdown nozzle adaptors to fit 3mm ID tubing.

    Other sources include generic inkjet refill packs - a 30ml syringe is usually included alongside the ink bottles.

    I made do with a 12ml one from pets at home. I was only shortening the hose at the lever end so i just need to push enough fluid up into the reseviour to elimanate any air bubbles where i lost fluid cutting the hose..

    I just had a go of my new xt's round the carpark...no probs getting the back wheel of the ground with my ass on the seat..

    Cheers
