skeetly, DaveM and I ask all new ones to go to the top and go through the stickies and give a brief intro. to themselves.

Have you tried the Triumph dealer for parts?

First thoughts are T dealer or BikeBandit.

You could do a search at B'Bandit for similar PNs on another brand bike and, if you found some, that would allow you to then get one from another marque dealer(s).

Looking back at my answer, I realized that I could have provided a better explanation. BikeBandit has the capability of telling you what bikes use the same Part numbers. Mind you, this is based on their number system which is what makes it feasible for them.

If you need to see what other bikes use a particular part number:

1. Do the usual perusals of their parts fische to locate the part you are concerned with. Copy that part number.

2. Click on the search button in the upper left corner.

3. Select OEM for type of search.

4. For Mfg, select All.

5. Paste the part number in the blank.

6. This will bring up an order screen. If you look carefully, under the Add To Cart button, in a pale font, you will see a Fits Machines clicky. Hit it and all machines that number is applicable to will be shown.

Cheers Old n Numb.
I wasnt sure if it was a 'consumeable' that they use that you could get anywhere or a proper 'part'

Nice site for finding part numbers that.
Bit far to send off for a bit from the UK though maybe :)

Do I really need to say 'hello'?
Isn't it part of the fun to get to know people slowly as their questions and offerings develop and are revealed?

:D

The reason I ask is because the bloody thing tried to destroy itself while doing some dismantling and I'm miles away from a dealer and wondered if it was some new (but unknown to me) type of exhaust joint packer. I wondered if it was possible that you could buy it ina roll from an exhaust fitting supplies emporium that I was ignorant of...

Anyhow I got the thing back in and its not blowing despite looking like its got a shakespearian ruff effected from scouring pad about the forward part of the mid pipe.
Im dry now and it daylight too..............

Welcome

Hi and welcome skeetly:)

What Don asked isn't hard and we do like to know a little about our new members.

Surely a good way to start on a forum is to comply with the moderators simple and reasonable request?:rolleyes:

Enjoy the forum we have a lot of very helpful types on this board.

Cheers
DaveM:)

Never suggested you order from them. Just tried to give you a method of seeing which bikes used the same parts. I thought that if the part was used on more than one brand, that info would give you more places to shop.

Guess I am unable to explain this correctly because this is the second time I have tried, and seemed to have failed in both instances. :confused:

Relax.
Any help is good :)
I am aware of the same part number being used across various models trick. Try finding parts deleted from the current manufacturing list for old japanese junk and you soon learn to find out what other wreckers might have used to same bit ;)

I go what I needed so its all good.

Saying it politely doesn't make it less confrontational.
I *have* introduced myself in the UK section.

I am almost certainly not going to meet you or Dom socially as we live on different continents. (Although I do frequent Doms continent quite often). I have no wish to give any more information than I already have.

I have no intention of causing any trouble here but the same personal qualities that lead me to enjoy motorcycling also cause me to rile against petty rules and even more so those who would enforce them just for enforcings sake.
It's your forum and I guess you can do as you wish; deny me access and expunge me from the record as if I'd never existed :)

I help run another forum in another sphere and I would have taken this to pm but I guess its important here to show the stick being wielded.

Best of luck.
:)

AS you wish skeetly

being asked to introduce yourself is not confrontational but it is common courtesy.

You choose to take that road your choice sport.

Your attitude is however disappointing and noted manners are not your best suit.

Skeetly, this is not the UK section. If you haven't guessed yet this isn't your ordinary site and especially forum. What DaveM and I ask for is the same for all new members and is just common courtesy to the members.
IF you want to join in, like any social gathering, it is proper behavior for a stranger to introduce themselves to the others and not barge in.

If you don't like what you see as petty rules you know where the door is and if you can't find it you will have an escort.

Be polite, be courteous or you will be gone quickly.

Them's the rules. And yes, DaveM and I wield the stick and it is with total backing by the site owners and admin.
And if there is anything that PO's them off it's a newbie telling them how to run their site(s).

Don
