Just my 2 penn'orth (USA translation being 2 cents)
The gear and brake levers should be stripped and lubricated at the start or end of each year, more if you are a high mileage rider. It takes about an hour for both levers, but that's just my opinion, though everyone is welcome to it!
Likewise, ignore the recommended service interval of 20,000 miles for the suspension linkages. I do mine at the start of each riding season, then after 8 or 10,000 miles which mostly equates to twice a year and takes around an hour. I even made my own sleeves to avoid paying Triumph prices. Grease is cheap!

My bike had 7500 miles on it when purchased. Doubt anythings been done concerning brake/shift levers.
What exactly do you mean by "Stripped"? Cleaned, maybe? :187:

Yes, as in  "stripped down", or taken apart. It's the Queens English old chap!

Canes1, 1675 should've added stripped doesn't mean getting undressed to work on your bike. And fixings, are the bikes, not yours. Just clarifying things for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :821: :158:

To get back on topic  :016:
Following all the advice on this forum I stripped down (oops off topic again  :008:) the left hand side of my 2017 TTSE with 13000 Miles  and checked the bolt: it came out easily and it went back in greased.
I went looking for a retailer to get a spare or 2 and found one site (Fowlers Parts)  saying that the part T3331400 has been "Replaced by: T3331520" is this correct? and if so does this new part solve the premature shearing problem?

I would say that it is a maintenance issue i.e. preventative.
