What causes this is soft alloy and dirt. IMO Triumph should have taken the time to have them heat treated to harden them.
Only way to stop this, as far as I can see, is get some made of a harder material. Or, as I might do, is buy a new set and get them Chrome plated..........for those that are unaware, Chrome is very hard.
