I think kurtisf is talking about this part:
http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triump...&block_03=3130
Number 14
Not intirely sure but this looks like the pushrod that sits inside the clutch cover. It pushes against the seat to disengaging the clutch. What kurtisf is saying is the new longer one will disengage the clutch deeper eliminating the chatter. Maybe someone can relate to this. Maybe I've got it wrong? I don't know.

Probably right. They also list two part 14's and the older one is called "flat". What I can't understand is the price difference: £21 against £49. That updated one must be brilliant...

My 2003 occasionally has clutch judder when feathering the clutch in first, the 2009 I had was exactly the same so I don't think the later part will cure it. A few more revs will avoid it.

My 2001 has never had the "lifter" replaced. The chatter ended with an oil change and a minor clutch adjustment.

Hi just had my cover of and noticed no wave washer on the starter gear. It's a 2001 model. I'm assuming it should have one. I also experience the clutch chatter at low revs noticed the lifter pieces are different mines is like a cap and the manual has a longer one is this the norm? Cheers

Had an 04 Thruxton that did it. Only when cold and the first few lights. Just ignored it. Was not worth going in after.

We've had reports that no wavey washer was fitted to early models, although it might have dropped out during dismantling, poster never confirmed it, here's such an instance:

I don't know, this is the sort of question that needs the likes of Mikeinva, he really knows these engines.

If that clutch case has never been off before then it means it hasn't had one for 13 years so it should be OK to leave it out. The parts listings show that one is required right from the beginning though...

The earliest service manual I have is from 2006 and that shows it as required. I did a quick search for experts opinions in here and Prop's advice on the post linked below is: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ASSEMBLE THE MOTOR WITHOUT THIS WAVY WASHER. It may look inconsequential, but it isn’t.

See last paragraph here:http://www.triumphrat.net/twins-tech...ngine-oil.html
