In over 110K on 2 streets I have had a few sets of C&S.

As TomS says the first ones were 116, and then they made the end of the swing arm ugly for 118.

Funny thing was on my last change, using std 118 set it was almost out of adjustment so 2 links removed.

Odd, but True. In thus case the Triumph mechanic fitted 118, I took it back, so dont blame the orginal mechanic.

Thank all for you responses, it is appricated.

It was the standard sprocket sizes.

The 2012 model uses 118 links, however the 2007 to 2011 ish bikes use the 116 links. All Triumph did was lengthen the swing arm right at the very end (same casting as before but with a little more material on the end). This was done for the US marked rumour has it....litigation or summit. Anyway, you can (and others have) fitted 116 links for better handling, so your all ok  :028:
Thanks for this information, was worried that it could cause issues, hoping I notice the improved handling.

Ah thats interesting, thats exactly what the mechanic said that it wouldn't have allowed any future adjustment with 118 links. Did you notice anything different without the extra 2 links?
