TRIUMPH 350 500 650 LOWER FORK BUSH LOCK RING TOOL 60-0572 (H219)

REPLY TO COMPLAINT FROM Terry Macdonald

Further to our telephone conversation, having measured the components could I point out that the machined slots in the aftermarket component are only 1.315″ across flats and the original equipment bush retainer were 1.275″ across flats. The problem being in the reproduction of the lock ring not the tool, something I would have thought a person who has rebuilt 340 sets of Triumph Forks could see.

  I do not see that the problem lies with the tool, though a little dressing would overcome this, my offer of refund on return of the tool in resalable condition still stands.

I will amend the listing now I am aware of the problem, but I now see from other companies advertising similar tools that non-original Lock Rings are causing similar problems.

Good afternoon John just a line to say thank you very much for sending the wheel adjusters I ordered for my old Bullet. I made a small sleeve/washer to fill the right hand side but the left hand side was a straight fit.

As you can see from the photos itโ€™s a great job.

Many thanks again John.

Kind regards

Hi John 

Here some Photos of mounting bracket fixed to the bike. Strangely the fixing screw head for the front bracket hits the top of the electrical box. I don’t know if the original bolt had a thinner head, whether the rubber grommets available now are the incorrect height or the fixing point on my frame is the wrong shape? Anyway I made a spacer/sleeve to go under the grommet which drops the electrical box lid down enough to clear the bolt head.

Hi John,

            Received headlamp brackets well packed and very quick service, I attached a picture of what I fitted them to a 604cc bored and stroked BSA Gold Star special.

Many thanks, stay safe, 

John

BSA Norton Triumph Slotted Chaincase Plug Inspection Cap-Tool Stainless Steel (H51)

Hi John,

It arrived today and is an excellent tool. Here is a photo and a comment for your website.

How did I manage for so long without this tool for tightening screw plugs on old British motorcycles? The picture shows it in use on the chaincase oil filler plug of my 1962 Triumph Tiger 100SS, and it works just as easily on the gearbox filler plug. Well designed and strongly made.
