Replacing the back tire - broken part - what's it called?

Took my 2000 TBS into the local shop to get some new rubber on the back tire. Got a call from the shop that I had a broken part. Not sure what it's called and since the bike isn't at Triumph dealer, they don't know either. Hoping that someone can identify this part. Here's the description:

On the left side rear (chain side), it's the metal block that goes over the axle and rests against the chain tensioner. It fits between the wheel arm (left side) and the lug nut.

I found a thread with a good picture of it:
http://www.triumphrat.net/hinckley-c...-my-chain.html

Pictures 3 and 7 in this thread show the part I'm describing. You can see this part is between the lug nut and the rear wheel arm on the left side.

I've also attached a picture to this post.

Any assistance from the community will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

It's called the adjusting collar. Item 18 on this page.

How in God's name did it get broken?

John, that is an excellent question to which I do not have an excellent answer. Perhaps the motorcycle gods are looking out for me. I would imagine a catastrophic fail if this part came out while underway. Thanks for the info.

Hey Slinky. Thanks for the link. I ordered the part (2 of them). Came to $55.00 and some change US. Almost half the cost was for shipping from the U.K.

Try to get the original from the dealer so you can post pics of how it is broken.

I've GOT to see this... it's just a block of metal!!

I think I would be very concerned that there's no damage to the alloy swing arm. Any doubts at all & I'd be looking to replace it with one of the often listed & not expensive items on ebay.

The axle mount is probably the most highly stressed part of it & safety critical.

Found the same thing when I had my last rear tyre changed. On mine, the slot in the swingarm that the collar sits in was a little dented, above and below the edge of the collar's neck. I stared at it and stared at it, but can't work out how that happened without more damage being done. There is no freeplay in the rear wheel, nor damage to the axle, and the dings are only on the outside edge of the slot in the swingarm. They look like someone has inserted a lever into the slot with the wheel off and worked it up and down to a 45 degree angle. I can't see how the damage could have been caused with the bike on the road. All kinds of other damage would have had to have happened at the same time, to the swingarm itself as well, and there's no sign of anything. I filed the dings smooth, and it doesn't affect the seating of the collar (but looks like it caused the collar to crack in the first place).

Incidentally, when I went to my local Triumph dealer, they quoted me $205 to replace one collar - to which I (finally) laughed out loud, and just walked away. Picked up a set from Pinwall Cycles on ebay for $10.
