    I'd replace the 2 outer spacers along with seals & bearings as a set, not expensive. Likely been ridden through a few winters.

    The centre spacer looks normal, coat it in grease to stop it corroding.

    Thanks for that Paul.

    I agree, going to replace all like you said but I'm not happy with that tube. It's steel with a good bit of corrosion on it. No notches on it either, maybe stopped putting them in some time around when they changed over to the sport. It's the buckle I really need to sort otherwise I'm back to square one in no time.

    Thanks everyone for your input. I'm waiting on Triumph to get back to me re the parts as they are out of stock at the minute.
    Give blood, you never know when you might need it back!!!
