Wish I'd seen that earlier - already ordered the part from the UK.  Motorcycle-Superstore probably would have got it here much quicker.  I've used them before with no complaints.

Agent9 - thanks for the offer but I was maybe a bit too quick to order the one from the UK.  This is a great group!!!!!!!

I'd prefer the socket type but I already had the wrench type and used it on my Tiger. If I decide to buy the socket type, at least I know now that I can get one for a reasonable price through the UK ebay site. I wasn't going to spend over $60 getting one from Triumph.

Griz,

I ALWAYS check out David's videos before any project, and yes they're excellent!  He did my XCX's 12k service when I was in the UK last year.  Great guy!
