So was yours the early version after all?  Or are Triumph just being cunning bastards and not listing the spring seperately anymore even though its the same?
Yes, you can't buy the spring separately now, you have to buy the whole shaft assy, luckily Simon had 1 left on the shelf as he knows it's a common thing that goes on the tiger,either that or the pin holding the spring comes loose or breaks.

I luvs a happy ending. Don't sound like a wallet hammering either. This calls for a beer, I'll have one with ya.  :031:
Yep, paid cash so was even cheaper,  2 hours labour, a spring and some gaskets . Cheers

I will do, I know Paullie gets him to do a lot of work on his bike  :028:

FYI Simon and his wife have taken over the cafe on the old site and are reopening in March, they are planning to have a weekly bike night and he mentioned that they might try offering a free breakfast for anyone booking a full service :046:

Now that's a good idea... on-site cafe to sit in while you wait for an MOT or service etc

Brings people in if only for a meet, brew or bacon butty. CMC at Clay Cross & A&D at Denbigh both have caff's, always several bikers at both, very busy at w/e's. Handy if we're having small jobs done or a 6k service.

Lucky to blag a brew at Triumph shops.

On the subject of servicing etc, my son was a Honda apprentice and then trained Triumph mechanic at JS Gedge in St. Leonards for 6 years.
He's now moved on and works as a pump assembler, but still does some local work on bikes.
So maybe worth bearing in mind if your East Sussex and in need of assistance.
