Are you sure its 37mm? Mine measures 38mm with verniers

Funny you say that, as we all know I havent got my TS anymore but I checked my sockets and Ive got a 38 but not a 37 and I know I had the nut on and off ??

Mike buddy, if all else fails you are welcome to borrow my L A A A A R G E adjustable spanner. Pretty sure that was why I bought it  :031:

Is an 1 1/2 AF socket any use?
so big apology to you all,  :431:  just been out and measured it with a digital vernier while at work and as below its 37.6mm A/F or 1.48 inch so i need a 38MM socket or 1 & 1/2 inch socket.  :138:

Thanks YD, i have a large adjustable but its too big to get in between the bar risers & get some leverage to tighten it, i managed to nip it up a few days ago but its loose again. 

thanks to you all for your replies & a Big thanks to Windy who is sending me his socket in the post tomorrow to use & return  :123:  :031:

About two years ago I was riding up the freeway and looked down to discover that cap nut rotating counter-clockwise on it's own accord. It was finger loose.  I reached down and tightened it up by hand as much as possible. It was my good fortune that I happened to be 5 minutes from my local dealer during open hours so I pulled in and they torqued it up for me.

I'm with Zulu, I don't understand the 90 nm torque spec as this nut has very little load. Perhaps it's just to prevent it from loosening up.

I think what you are after is a specific Triumph tool T3880300

Be careful not to over tighten with a socket  as the alloy can deform slightly on the radius of the hex corners

Try and use a single hex socket

Used to see this type of brute force damage daily when working at the bike shop when multi hex sockets were used by owners

The similar Kawasaki nut is even softer alloy and marks really easily

I torqued it up to 90NM last night with a 38mm single hex socket.
Only took a couple of minutes once i had removed the handlebars, the longest part of it was searching the forum for the torque settings for the 4 bolts on the handlebar clamp for my risers  :008:
this mornings ride was a big difference now that the nut is tight.. braking better - didnt feel like the bike was going to fall apart when i hit the anchors  :005: and no weave at over 120mph  :152:
(wasnt on the public road officer  :121: HONEST  :192: )
So all sorted - thanks to all who have replied with offers of help & advice  :031:
