It works very well, it has L shaped rubber "pegs" (spool stands for non spooled bikes). I got it for $40 off of eBay. I will PM you the link.

From your pics it looks very similar in design to the Harbor Freight one I picked up. Like with all HF stuff, you can tell it wasn't designed or built for NASA, but it seems to do the job well. If anyone does get a HF one, make sure to check it out well before buying it, I've read that it's not uncommon for them to be misaligned or have obvious welding issues. For $25 the one I got appears to be relatively solid. I've thought about using it as a template to weld my own if my confidence in it starts to wane.

Wow, I didn't know they were that cheap! I thought $40 was a good deal. Although I don't know if Australia has a Harbor Freight, but they're probably on eBay.

Well, it looks like my triumph days are short lived. Was heading out to meet some buddies and laid the bike down this past Tuesday. Still debating if I want to fix the bike myself, or part the good parts out. Love the bike but finding good parts for my "01" 600tt seems to be a bit hard these days. I'll go over my options over the holiday weekend.
Dam shame to as I was looking to meet some local next season.

eBay is a great source for parts. I've found loads for a TT600. This is my personal belief but I think the TT600 is a fantastic bike and very underrated so the more there is on the road, the better. Hope you can save it.

I been searching online including ebay. Good parts are hard to come by these days. I will look over the bike this weekend and make the call.

I loved the 600tt while it lasted, so its hard to let it go.
On one hand I don't want to give the bike up. On the other hand I don't feel like dealing with tearing the bike down and trying to sell the parts on places like ebay.

No need to be sad! For example in Russia TT600 no more than 10 bikes. I really like the bike and I am proud that I own it! Almost all of the parts I find on Ebay and other foreign online stores. Even poor knowledge of English did not stop me.

What parts are you looking for then? Maybe us fellow TT600 riders can pull together and help you search for them?!
