    I saw the fact that it is a single sided swing arm set up.  Originally I didnt know that.  I am hoping once I get it I can come up with some way to make this caliper work.  A buddy of mine has a machine shop.  So what did you end with for your replacement?

    I wasn't swapping the caliper, just the pads. I went to a local Triumph dealer with a picture of my old pads on my phone. The parts guy sold me a set of EBC FA214/2HH pads by mistake. They look the same as the FA215/2HH but the pad with the extension has a different orientation. I'm guessing it is because the rear caliper is on the right side of the 07-12 Tiger 1050's wheel, the SSA Speed Triple has it on the left side. I just swapped the 214 pads for 215's .
