gearchange Pedal "lost"
« on: October 12, 2014, 09:39:19 am »
Yesterday, a wonderful day for riding out before winter hibernation  :002:, it happened:

started in first gear, changed to second gear, tried to shift in the 3rd gear but shifter pedal was gone away   :005: . Only good thing was, it happened 250 m away from Triumph dealer I tried to visit for dating next service.
Pedal was fallen down because of the broken welding bolt (PFKL2304527).

Anyone else have such bad experience? 

Fortunately my wife will lent me her Suzuki GSX1250FA , by testing her backseat.
Better than staying at home while waiting for repair.


Cheers Rolf

It's happened to me twice now, Rolf. Triumph don't seem to care.
I carry a spare (only about €7) and will get it replaced at every service from now on.

Is this the problem you are referring to?  If so even though it hasn't happened to me I too carry a spare...just in case

Bolt?

What does carrying a spare gain you?  Doesn't it shear off requiring the remnant be removed with an easy out or drilling it out?

Isn't that problem related to this?

What does carrying a spare gain you?

The benefits are :

a) You might not break down any where near to a Triumph Dealer, but any half-reasonable garage shop
should be able to remove the remnants of the broken stud, and replace it with the spare part you carry.

b) As we have seen before - even if you do break down right outside a Triumph Dealer, there's no guarantee
that they will have the part in stock, and depending where in the world you are,
and it could take a good few days for them to get one  - What do you do while waiting  ?

Comparatively speaking there are only a few bikes that have had this part fail,
but depending on the nature of your trip, the route, Country, cost and small size of the part etc,
it will certainly make sense for some to carry a spare  :169:

Shame that the bolt is £5.08 and postage is £4.50  :005:

I suppose the dealer can order one in.

I can see that now. Normally when I think of carrying a spare anything it's in the context of making a roadside repair.
