Good thread guys. Will have to check back when I attempt mine.

Hadn't considered using a long extension and coming from the other side.

Sort of following this thread

Does anyone have the Triumph front fork spindle crash protectors fitted? How do they look? Any pictures?
Anyone had the misfortune to slide off with these (or similar) fitted? Did they save the fork lowers / brake calipers.

Trying to decide whether to invest £42 in them. I do like OEM stuff if it is available.
Thanks. David

Hi Stu,
I've got a 2015 Street Triple (none R).
I imagine the front spindle is common from 07 onwards. Do you have a Triumph part number
Very interested if you have the front spindle protection
Cheers David

Stu's front fork protection are 'tona ones (triumph type 2), where as the Street 13+ is type1. Tnks for trying to get me sorted Stu.
Anyway, bought some from Webb's in Lincoln a couple of weeks ago for the reasonable £42. They are in Worldoftriumph accessories sale for £12 now!
But they are a thing of engineering beauty.

At that price buy a set for the rear (you will need to buy some threaded bar)

That is exactly what occurred to me last night!
 I'll have a look and see whether the chain side would need a spacer to clear the swing arm casting (don't want to rub the finish)

Folks, been trying to fit the R&G crash bungs to my ST, following the instructions supplied: I've 'undone' the front nearside allen bolt to find all it does is slip around in the chassis/engine mounting hole.  Upon reaching behind I have discovered that the bolt tightens into a nut, not the engine block or the chassis.  Whilst trying to get purchase on said nut with my fingers, I've discovered it is still too tight to be undone by hand, however there's no space to get pliers or a spanner onto the nut!  So conversely, I can't even tighten it back up... So now I have a spinning bolt in the engine/chassis mounting hole, and no way imaginable of tightening it!

Has anyone else encountered this?

Is this one of the changes to the ST to be encountered on the 2009 model as opposed to the 2007/8?!

Any advice would be greatly welcomed...

I have to head home in about an hour, and have no option other than to ride home - I'm hoping that 3 tourqued-up bolts will be sufficient to keep the engine in place!  :005:

Can anyone tell me the nut and Torx?  key sizes please, I have a set of Evotech sliders coming and want to be prepared (2020 Street Triple)?

Thanks.
