    Triumph Parts

    When I recently serviced my brake callipers I thought next time I'd re-new the pad pins and anti rattle springs.

    I got quite a shock when I saw the prices at an on line parts service:

    Pad Pin 12.06 each, 4 required at 48.24
    Pad Spring 11.17 each, 4 required at 44.68
    Total 92.92

    To me that sounds very expensive for four screws and a few bent bits of pressed steel, anybody help and advise a better supplier?

    How many miles do you have on you Trophy .I would not think you should need new pins and clips on a bike just three year old. unless you have over a 100,000 miles on it . Had 130,000 miles on my BMW and never needed to change any brake parts other than pads .

    as big bird says, I think you are contemplating changing far too often. On those specific parts I wouldn't change on a time schedule but rather on an examination and replacement on need/wear schedule.  For example if pins were rusted or if  springs had lost tension.

    Besides, it'd take you forever to get those parts in the states.

    I have 30,000 miles on my Trophy and only wanted to change these parts for cosmetic reasons.  Won't be doing that now at these prices.

    No need to replace the pins unless they have worn groove.  As long as there's no serious pitting, a bit of corrosion will clean up with some steel wool.
