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.
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.

I am about to leave on a 4,500 mile trip on Friday. I wanted to wrap my tank with a professional made tank wrap. Unfortunately I didn't get it done. I realized that I had a brand new set of RMZ 250 graphics that didn't fit my bike (company sent me the wrong year when I ordered them a few weeks ago). So, I pulled them out to see if any of the stickers were a good fit. Chaching! The rear fender was almost a perfect fit. I had to make a couple of crease cuts to fit around some of the sharp edges. I also used a front fender sticker to finish off the bottom. It all turned out really well except for one little spot (as seen in the pictures). But all in all I'm happy with it and you wont see the mistake with my tank bag on it. It will protect my tank from the tank bag just as needed. I may just order a fender graphic in white and make it a permanent mod. I want to see how this works out first.
(sorry last picture is terrible)

Hi all,
I made it back to Idaho after 3410 miles on Hobbes. I surpassed 17,000 miles in my first year of ownership. The check engine light that I posted about while in California came back after I reset it via the OBD-2 port. I couldn't get another code reader due to Cali's retarded laws. So, the light reset itself after three cycles. Hasn't been back since. I did all the point to point checks when I got home, and I'm gonna just call it a glitch in the speed sensor system somewhere. I'll only be concerned with it if it comes back a third time.

If you guys want to read about my trip, it begins on page 34 post #497 in my thread. Clicky Signature. I wrote for 13 hours yesterday and 4 hours today. All done. Enjoy!

Looks great! Have you decided when and where you will be in Idaho? If you swing through Boise, you are more than welcome to crash at my place. Showers, garage parking, shop if needed, and cold beer!
