    Drag Link failure - rear suspension assembly

    So doing some checks of my 2013 TTSE today as havenít used it too much since coming back from doing the North Coast 500 at the beginning of September. Was giving my side stand a bit of a WD40 bath as it was getting a bit stiff from all the road crap and noticed my wish bone was broken on the left side. Has anyone had this and any idea of cost to replace?

    Tried to post a pic but need to make it smaller.

    =============

    Admin Edit:

    Title renamed to drag link - it's not a wish bone.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what you mean by "Wishbone" ?

    Is it the Drop Link - there are two - one on each side ?

    If so it's Part No.23 at £28.47 each, here :

    World of Triumph / Triumph Trophy SE  / Rear Suspension Unit & Linkage

    If it isn't that part, then the exploded drawing should help identify which part it is  :169:

    Note that World of Triumph use their own Part Numbers which are different
    to Triumph's Part Numbers, but when you add an item to the "Basket"
    the Triumph Part Number is revealed, e.g. "T2057605" in case you want to get it
    from your local Triumph Dealer, or search for it's availability elsewhere !  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    Nope doesn't look like any impact damage. Its a fair bit of metal too and only broken on the left side.

    I was a little "nervy" when I saw the broken part as I had gone off the paved roadway a couple of times onto the non paved shoulder when getting used to the bike.  This does not count the bike drops and $1600 to repair the bike. I hadn't ridden a big bike before having had a HD Sportster 6 weeks before I totaled it.  I checked my bike from stem to stern and found everything looking in working order.  That wishbone is a big chunk of steel or aluminum and I wonder what could have snapped that?   

    P.S.  I know what you're thinking.  He should have started off with a motor scooter.  :125:  :138:

    Yikes! Do you remember hitting a deep pot hole for example?
