    Not good

    Is the beginning of the end, why I never noticed it until now is beyond me  :084:



    I'm guessing I will be needing a replacement leg / fork at some point soon  :233:

    Is it refurbishable, is that a word  :164: !!!
    Does the leg unscrew from the wheel spindle / clamp.
    Will I need one leg, or is it prudent to buy a pair.
    Will the cost of replacement stop my heart from beating, if so, it was nice being here  :159:

    Not sure from the photo, but it may just be some surface corrosion?

    You might try lightly buffing with some emory cloth to see if it comes off.

    Scrunch up a little bit of kitchen foil and gently rub the blistered chrome flat then squirt some ACF50 on it, be good as new.  :002:

    Hopefully it is just a little surface corrosion that will clean up as described,
    and at least it's not in a location that will affect the Fork Seals.

    Looking at the exploded drawing on the World of Triumph web site here :

    TROPHY 1215 SE - Front Forks & Yokes

    ... it looks like Part 5 / 6 - "Innertube Inc. Axle Clamp" ( Left or Right side )
    can be purchased separately. ( 360.50  :005: )

    Stripping the old one down and rebuilding with the new part is likely to be challenging !
    ( Section 8.22 of the Service Manual ).

    Wilco, not good that its corroding, but its so far down its well away from where the seal wipes. How old is your bike? I need to check mine.
    Main thing is to arrest the corrosion, clean away and coat so that it doesn't corrode again. I would paint the bottom 5mm on both sides after buffing back to bare metal. I may do the same to mine to prevent it starting.

    Gav,
    My bike is a late 2013 registration, on a 63 plate.
    I rubbed it down with some fine wet and dry and applied ACF 50 for now, I will get some rust inhibitor during the week, clean it again, then apply, at the moment I cannot afford to replace it, our new house is taking all our spare money.

    Meanwhile, while the wheels are out for a refurb, a local family run tyre outlet, I had the tyres replaced by them before my trip to Bulgaria, are charging 55 per wheel.
    This includes removing and refitting the tyres, re balancing, removing and refitting the bearings and seal, I will supply new one's to them, and removing and refitting the TPMS, this price includes the powder coating of the wheels, So for 110 pounds, I don't think that's a bad price.

    While it's all apart, I did a little bit of house keeping, I have removed the brake pad's, not the pistons, and cleaned the calipers with brake cleaner, and jet washed the crud from them, I need to find something to make the black like new again as it's gone very dull, respraying them has gone through my mind.







    I think it's all going to look good once it's all back together.
