    And I'd like to add :  verify that the pivot bolt has been upgraded or modified since some OEM's were made of too "soft" of a material ( not hardened or hardened enough ) and had a tendency to shear off.  There have been posts in the past about this issue. 

    A new PN has been issued by Triumph, I understand for an upgraded pivot bolt.  The new PN has a harder material from what I can tell.

    Here is a pic of a possible modification.  The pivot bolt should be chucked in a lathe when drilling the hole to be certain the hole id centered.

    I remember one guy said he rode to the pub and when returning to his bike,  when he put in in first gear, the shift lever fell off !!   So, the same goes for the shift lever:  same pivot bolt PN is used.

    I have the upgraded PN on the shift lever and a modified pivot bolt on the brake lever with anti-seize coating the sliding surfaces.  I let you know which one fails first.

    I drilled mine out on my drill press while clamped into a cross slide vise, and yes the newer version is harder.  I know because I was going to drill one for a spare for anyone with a problem on the road at one of our get togethers and couldn't drill it.  It would definitely take a lathe to do those.
