They didn't give me a new one. They just switched out the bump stops.

I was at my dealer a couple of weekends ago & he had some old bikes out. This has been a triumph only dealer for 3 generations. During the dark days they stayed open by working on exotic cars (Ferrari, Lamborghini, ect...)
Anyway I wanted to share this Gem: the first triumph triple

Ooops! Looks like I've opened a whole new can of worms.

Contacted my dealer service bloke today and he insists that the new design is supposed to touch the swing arm with the bungs. So it bumps instead of clangs. However, to shut me up he's posting a new, thicker bung for my stop bracket.

Question FenderRiser

I want to add a Fender Riser and located TourTech but not able to locate a SW Motech source.

Can someone point toward a SW option?

Is one better than the other?

TIA

I had a friend make the risers from the plans listed on the UK site.

I read on one of the Triumph forums that the rubber bump stop itself was recalled, presumably before the redesign of the entire center stand, and has it's own updated part number.

In my quest to have my old center stand replaced with the supposedly new and better center stand, I found this information, but never verified it through the dealer. They just gave me a new kit, which I installed myself and the new kit had a better spring and 3 matching and improved rubber bump stops.

Tried my new Touratech tank bag today (bought it in Germany when I was there last week as US prices are f***ing awful). Bag works great, I really like it.

Help with my rusty memory.....

Didn't Craig Vetter have something to do with the styling of the Triumph X-75?
Wait, why am I asking you guys?
I could consult the interweb.......

I guess I'm not as rusty as I thought!

The X-75 Hurricane was a Triumph Engineering motorcycle that was the first of a new breed of limited production 'factory specials'. Commissioned by BSA's US distributor, the X-75 was designed by fairing specialist Craig Vetter.[1] Vetter built his design on the then newly released BSA Rocket 3/Triumph Trident's 750 cubic centimetres (46 cu in) three cylinder engine. It was ultimately released as a Triumph model in 1973 after BSA closed its doors in late 1972.[2] It had lowered gearing and a distinctive triple exhaust on the right-hand side.
