position of washer on yoke
« on: February 22, 2018, 09:02:38 PM »
Hi guys
 
When I dismantled my yoke so I could grease head bearings I found a washer on floor, it same internal dia as the thread on yoke but can`t see where it goes , there isn`t a pic of it in official triumph manual.

Any ideas guys  :084:

As it's positioned in your photo, just under the top nut

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

 :087: thank you Rtwo , must get some new glasses.  I did initially put it there but decided it wasn't performing a function seeing as it same dia as the nut :084:

Oh well,  I will put Bernadette together this weekend and that's her fully serviced for this year's biking

Bring it on Picos mountains :152:

Hi

I emailed Triumph about use of washer,  i got reply now so happy😀

Thank you for your enquiry.

The washer under the top yoke nut is there to stop the nut digging into the aluminium yoke and damaging it.

Thank you once more for your enquiry.

Best regards
