Since I'm easily confused is this thread about the "thermostat" or the "Radiator cap" or both?

Hey there!

Did you ever get your front stand pin? I just wanted to confirm with you which pin I need before I order one. I still have my Pit Bull stands from my racing days...might as well get some use out of em.

BTW I have one of their fork bottom stands too, but I can't get it to safely lift the Trophy...might just be me being lame.

Yes, the #26 pin fits perfectly. An online shop had it dropped shipped directly from Pit-Bull but it was cheaper than if I ordered directly so it worked out.

For $200 I think I might have drilled it out and pressed in some sort of bushing instead.  Of course, it it follows the pattern of my life I would have screwed up and with medical bills cost way over $200 for teh job and still would have had to replace the part!  :)

I'd suggest before you do anything else, and also presume windows 10, right click on Start button and select Device Manager.  See if there are problems with the port/driver for the device. 

Tyres and Wheels / Re: DIY Tire Changing

I was going to self change my tires recently but after the struggle just breaking the rear bead and seeing how stiff the sidewalls were I decided to remove the wheels and take to a dealer.   Although not as inexpensive as I'd like even taking new tires in with me they basically charges about $35 out the door for each wheel (mount and balance) and they acknowledged I had TPMS sensors.  This was at the Triumph dealer.

I've done it on other bikes, most recently a Suzuki DL-650 V-Strom.

Is this a solution looking for a problem?

Apparently so.  :027:

I see that now.  That's what I get when I reply and feel all smug with myself thinking I found the answer.   :431: :034:

This is the closest I've found looking at the usual suspects:
