Here's a couple of pdf drawings I did based on other drawings I saw on-line, the link to the pdf files is listed below.

I cleaned the details up a bit and corrected an interference. The drawings are dimensioned in both mm and inches.

NOTE: I HAVE NOT BUILT/TRYED THIS YET, NOR COMPARED IT TO AN ACTUAL TRIUMPH TOOL, USE DOCUMENTS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Could anyone do a dimensional comparision?

Your link is rather glitchy. If I understand that you want some measurements, I've got the tool. What dimensions do you need?

I just tried the download seemed to work fine (maybe it's a traffic thing); what do you want for free. Sorry, If there's a better way to post, let me know...

Anyway, I wanted to verify the plate thickness, center to center distance of 90mm to the cam mounting bolts, the hole pattern of 20mm x 45mm and also the length dimensions of the arm (52mm and 9.5mm).


Thanks so much.

I measure the plate at 9.47mm thick with c-to-c of 88.5mm for the mounting holes. I get 20mm x 33.7mm for the arm mounting holes. 52mm is correct for the length of the arm under the flange with a step at 41.8mm. distance from face of arm to center of mounting hole is about 6.35mm. There is an offset to the cam tower mounting holes, hence the markings indicating "intake" and "exhaust" sides of the plate. The holes are about .8mm closer to the edge of the plate on the intake side. Hope that helps.

Hi guys, to be honest, if there are more than 3 that need adjusting, I find it just as easy to lift the cams out. Then you get good access and can check the cams as well. Just my 2 cents worth.

I've done it both ways. Not having to take the cam out is the best feature about the Tiger vs. the shim-under-bucket head of the Sprint/Speed Triple. The tool works fine.
