front sprocket locking tab / washer

Just about ready to put new chain / sprockets on the America and need to buy new front sprocket locking tab / washer.
Figure I should probably not re-use it yet again!!
Would appreciate input as to where to buy this part.
Thanks

Wild guess, but maybe a dealer?

Local dealer if you have one. Bike Bandit or Hermy's Triumph store. Hermy's would likely be faster than the Bandit.

2009 America with some modifications, a lot of fun that I can ride all day. (sold and miss my 2008 Bonneville, a great daily driver)

Thanks for the obvious, Howard! Next time save your input.
I would not be asking if I had not already tried that route!
In fact it seems the only Triumph dealers around Boston have switched to other (Jap) brands.
I did end up ordering one but even that dealer (in Georgia) did not have one on hand.
Seems like Triumph could do a much better job with after sales parts and service.
Will bookmark Hermy's - thanks Matty

Unless the washer has been destroyed it's reusable. I've reused the one on my 2003 several times.
Just take a screwdriver or small chisel and tap it flat enough to remove the nut.

I've reused mine many times as well. You do not need to routinely replace it.

If you are concern you have used it too many times -flatten it and use two of the other areas to bend back against the nut. Good to go.

I just replaced my chain and sprockets on my 2006 T100, with a genuine Triumph chain and sprocket set. The set came with the lockwasher. Obviously, that won't help if you go with aftermarket chain and sprockets!

Thanks for all the serious answers. I've got one on order now, though it's hard to believe that little piece of steel is really worth about $6!! Thanks, guys.

Well, you didn't mention the fact that you tried a dealer or tried searching online, so how is anyone supposed to know? Glad you found a place to order one though. It's too bad the dealers around you don't carry them, you'd think it's something they'd have a few on hand for. But then again, it's probably not something that flies out the door every day. Have a good one!
