Hello guys,
I own a 2008 Triple (the so called Brembo caliper model).
Some time ago I started retrofitting different parts from the newer models, rather than purchasing aftermarket parts. I it better when it has Triumph written on it :)

So, I changed the bugeye lights for the 2011 ones.
Now I am searching for a swingarm swap, the entire assembly (bearings arm, chain etc.). Found a 2011 model swingarm quite cheap somewhere in Netherlands. Question is: does it make for a direct fit on my 2008 or not?

Also, do you know of any other parts that would make a good retrofit for the 2008?

Cheers!

The swingarm from the 2011> model with new frame does not fit the 2008 frame . The 2008 frame was used from 1997 to the end of 2010 so you can use any swingarm from that period. You can even use swingarms from the Sprint ST/RS (955 or 1050) with the twin spar frame.
