I wonder if he doesnt mean the screws that hold the plastic side covers on, the reference to the "lucky coin" made my think that, might be wrong.

https://www.triumphestore.com/p/Triumph_2015_Scrambler-EFI/Screw--Coin-Release--M6-x-20/59765764/T3335566.html from Hermy's.

@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.

M6X20

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

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.

All I see art tinted black or clear. What about a colored one like Triumph use to make. The same off white as on the 06 or 07 scramblers.

Does anyone know of any better rear calipers that just bolt on to the air cooled Bonneville T100? Mine needs replacing and was wondering if there was one that didn't seize every 10 minutes out there.....

Nope, but it's worth looking into the rear brake relocation brackets that Motone (and a few others I think) sell as they'll move the caliper above the swingarm and reduce the amount of crud that gets in there. I've had one on mine for the best part of a year now, no issues at all and it even installs with the stock brake lines.

Cheers, yeah I did that ages ago, i still find i have to keep checking the sliders though. Not as often but still. I read somewhere the st1100 rear caliper goes on but it just doesn't look like it does.

Picked up the accessory book for the 2019 Triumph model range, a lot I see that I want to put on my 15 scrambler. For example the handlebar brace and headlight guard. It seems like they would fit, as far as I know the handlebar is the same size as well as the headlight.

Anyone?

Pretty sure your scrambler has a 22mm handlebar, I'd give it a try if so - failing that there's loads of aftermarket braces that you could add very easily! Can't answer about the headlight guards though, depends on the position of the mounts etc I guess. If you speak nicely to your local dealer they might let you try it out in person if they've got one in stock?

Evening all. I hope I'm posting in the right thread? I have a 2014 Thruxton 900 EFI and at the weekend I took a slow speed tumble and had to drop the bike on the RHS. I've done a bit of damage to the bike all of which is cosmetic (I think /hope) and I need to replace some parts. I can source most of the bits I need (mirror, silencer, pegs etc.) but I'm really struggling to find a god damm rear brake lever, well one that isn't going to brake the bank. Triumph want £100 for an original but I can't justify the cost, the original lever seems to be made of some pathetic, brittle metal which will break again so I'd like to upgrade it in any case. Any ideas on where I might be able to source a replacement at a reasonable cost? All of the shops I would normally purchase parts from tell me it won't fit my model of Thurxton

I'm also looking to replace the brushed aluminium stator cover which also is badly scratched as I guess that can't be rectified easily?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all

I've checked on ebay but I can only find brake pedals for other Triumph models, not a 2014 EFI Thruxton. Does anyone know whether or not any other model brake pedal, Triumph or otherwise would fit the bike? I'm happy to not have an exact replacement I just need it to fit and do the job.

I have found a part by LSL but it's like £70 and the ones I'm finding on Ebay are approx £20. I've also phone countless Triumph breakers and salvage yards but they have not been any help.

Ideas welcome. Thanks
