@Hugo7 , you dont mention the year or model, from your profile I'm assuming a Scrambler and I just picked a random year of 2015
Cheers.

Yes, sorry the plastic side cover screws.

I think it's 900 twin EFI - 2015, but maybe a 2016 (I always forget).

@Forchetto - I was looking at those, but mainly toying with making my own from a m6 allen head bolt by cutting a m10 thread and screwing 'n gluing it into a m10 flanged hex socket nut. All as a mix of budget, looks and different removal options.

I figured a larger hex head would give something to grab onto.

Somewhere I have it in my head that it's a m6 bolt hole, but I can't see to find anything to confirm that.

That link I posted on my message is from Hermy's, you can view all your bike parts on their site, it is a M6 bolt that you need.
Click on this link, it will show you a diagram of your bike, look at part no.

You can find everything/every part for your bike, just click on the boxes that take you to the bike you have and the section/equipment for the bike and it'll have a diagram of those parts.

Alternative sprockets

Few places have Triumph sprockets off the shelf, but Suzuki and Yamaha sprockets can be found anywhere - so this might get you out of a bind in the event of catastrophic failure on the road... Also, if you like to play about with gearing, want to try a 520 chain conversion, or just want cheaper sprockets than Triumph OEM parts...

From the JT Sprockets website:

The rear sprocket (43T) on our bikes is identical to e.g. the Suzuki GSX-R600 (2001-2010) and comes in sizes 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 47, 48 for 525 chains (stock) - and in 42, 43, 45 for 520 chains.

The front sprocket (18T) is almost identical to the Yamaha YZF R1 (1998-2017) - it's slightly thicker, so you'll need a few minutes on a lathe if you want the locking washer to fit... and comes in sizes 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 for 525 chains (stock) - and in 15, 16, 17 for 520 chains.

The very newest ('15-'17) 865 models also have 18T front sprocket for 520 chains and 42, 43, 45 for 520 chains fitted as stock.

Free Spirits offer an offset 19T front sprocket if you want to run wider rubber - but only for 525 chains.

The Sprocket Center offer 16, 17, 18, 19 size front sprockets for both 520 chains and OEM 525 chains, and for the rear have 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47 for 520 chains and 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47 for 520 chains. Hunting around for GSXR/R1 sprockets will probably turn up still more sizes...

Supersprox (USA and Europe) offer light "Stealth" rear sprockets for the GSXR in both 520 and 525 size, so perfect for our bikes. Unfortunately for those of us on "this" side of the pond, the European site isn't as comprehensive as the USA one - we're better off looking at the USA site and then armed with the relevant part numbers going back to the European site...

My engine has a small patch of vibration between 4,200-4,500 rpm - but by using The Gearing Commander I was able to "plan" my gearing to make this as unobtrusive as possible on Finnish roads (100kph in the countryside, 120kph on the motorway) - with a 19T front sprocket and 42T rear, the bars start to get a bit buzzy at 112kph but has totally cleared up by 125kph... Perfect! (If you don't mind driving a little over the limit...)

Steering Dampers?

Hi Folks
Has anyone found a bargain steering damper? Others have mentioned ones that are no longer available or a million bucks.
Longer shocks have given my 2007 T100 a tank slapper.
Also, saddlebags without a frame or straps compressing the pillion seat.
Cheers

This damper

https://www.dimecitycycles.com/vinta...r-32-0082.html

With this mounting is reasonable

I see you live in Australia so maybe not such a good deal

I would avoid the TEC one unless they’ve drastically improved. I got one and it was junk. I used to get a bit of wobble when I put road riders on. Changed the tyres and the wobble went.

FRANKENSPARK!

Sick of Triumph pick-up coils failing every three years at £56 a pop, I've discovered a replacement part with similar specs for £30 from Electrex (who specialise in bike electrics) - and it works! It *does* require 'some user modification' (drill holes to 6mm, connect to OEM wiring - white to black, brown to red) but it produced a spark at the plug on the first attempt! Having to rely on Ducati parts for a spark may seem... how shall I say? Counter-intuitive? 😉 But these are quality parts, the majority of which are made in-house.
