A simple equation for Stringer spin up due to anomalous transport valid in arbitrary toroidal symmetric geometry is derived. Additional terms are found compared with previous work that can be traced to a different ordering of the parallel velocity. The influence of elongation and Shafranov shift is shown to be small. Neoclassical viscosity is included and the case of both small and large viscosity are discussed.
