That's great to hear! Especially since I just ordered a set and they're on the way as we speak. From what I hear, they're even better than the TKC80s at, well, most everything (and last longer, too)! I just wish that they were easier to get a hold of here in the US.
Well...

The jury is still out on the Heidenau's lasting longer. I'll try to take some pictures of mine and post them up. They look about like this. Mine have a little over 2500 miles on them now. I think the rear will be toast after 4000 or so. They seem to wear about like the trailwings to me. Most of my miles have been commuting on pavement. They are FAR SUPERIOR to the stock trailwings in every other condition. I'm not disappointed with the purchase.

yeah- i was referring to the clutch lever. the gear lever apparently survived unscathed. thanks for the feedback, tho.

It'd be nice if there was a site like the BMW http://www.realoem.com/ for us Triumph guys to use.

May not do much for aftermarket stuff, but it'd still come in handy for some things. Or are we just too much of a niche market for an online parts database?

Edited for coherency.

agreed x 2. i'm fortunate that the only thing i injured was my pride- i checked bikebandit.com, but evidently there's no oem part for that.

The only time I ordered OEM parts from BikeBandit I canceled the order after about 10 business days. Their website says "In Stock, ready to ship" or whatever, but it takes a long time for them to get the parts from Triumph. Honestly, I think it's probably Triumphs fault.

Pure Triumph has shipped parts to me within 1 - 2 business days. I think they have better access to Triumphs parts supply.

I find they generally suck for any parts or gear. I only use them if I absolutely need to or I'm buying something expecive and use the AMA discount. They take forever to ship and if you order 12 different things and one item is on back order they hold up the entire order. Then again I'm lucky enough to have a dealer less then a mile from me and they have never taken more than 4 days to get me anything.

Save yourself a headache, those damn triumph pegs snap every time it takes a nap and they are expensive!

These are holding up great, multiple naps on both sides.

I got the touring ones because they were a bit longer, but they do get a bit slippery with dirt bike boots and wet grass. I also am on the list to get the pivot pegs which you might consider if you plan to do more dirt, they should be ready for the Scrambler soon. You should know that the green one looks best dirty.

Oh and I have curled two brake levers right out of the gates, didn't much mind the mod actually, made a nice two fingered brake. It hasn't happened since though, must have them in a different position.

+1 on the folding shifter - definitely a requirement!

I am very happy with the Heidenau tires and the new sliders as well.

There is a lot going on in this picture but I want to ask, is that a T-Junction off a cyclone fence!? And good lord...he seems to have some meat hanging off the swing arm behind it!!!

I suggest you get in touch with the supplying dealer because those springs are a real pain to get into place so it's very unlikely that they'd simply fall off. If the pin is still there, could be that they didn't hook the silly bracket thing over the pin properly. If the pin is missing they didn't do the nut up on the back.
Good luck with the repairs. It must be a real pisser to see your new bike on its side.
