    Very expensive bolt

    Told you about my broken brake pedal a while ago, turns out it was the bolt  that was snapped  which took  two days to arrive to the dealers from Triumph, a distance of about a hundred or so miles?,so that was me without my bike for three days then to top it off the bill came to  81.00 ouch,so be careful  out there.I was going to put the dealers name but I won't.
    I am innocent☺!!

    I got two posted from World of Triumph for less than twenty quid. Send it back, unless of course, yhey also posted the mechanic to fit it
    Dont use Loctite on the threads when you re assemble it, use grease. That way it will come out easily if you break it again.

    WOW ! - That's an expensive bill to replace a bolt that Retails at 8.01 !

    Your Labour costs work out at 72.99 ! -
    I wonder how long they say it took them to do the work ?

    Also the brake pivot bolt doesn't need an easy out the broken bolt will drive down the thread and out of the back of the frame.

    Sorry, I didn't realise the dealer did the work for you. Still, with my bespoke drill jig, described in detail in another post, you could have had the broken stud out in 5 minutes!

    When I booked it in I told them it was a broken pedal and they told me 71 which I paid over the phone then they rang me to say it was not the pedal but the bolt and it would be another 42 for a half hours extra labour,it was only when I queried it they grudgingly took off the cost of the pedal @ 59 still a very expensive bolt,anyone recommend a good mechanic shop in Sussex? ?
