... I really thought Triumph parts would be silly price ...

Oh they are, but the panels aren't so bad it's their mechanical bits .... just picked up my 52 fork seals & dust seals yesterday. :005:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

@Stevie.P You did the right thing; cheap fork seals and bushes are a false economy, as I found out during lockdown maintenance  :019:

My initial route was to get original so I had the details for later and use bearing/seal suppliers but there does appears to be an opinion on the fork seals from a few members that it pays to stay with genuine, unlike most other bearing & seal requirements of the bike.

I have a curiosity on my new seals but will take to new thread as off topic.

PS a hats off to Fowlers they have been great - I ordered the upper and lower rad cowl as they call it from their website, which for my bike only had options of blue, white and black - as mine was blue I ordered that one, but when it arrived (just 24 hrs later) it was wrong shade of blue plus the Triumph Tiger transfer was different colour to original one on other side.
I rang them up and they agreed to take it back for a refund and sorted me out with proper panel (seems theres 2 blues Caspian blue and Lucerne blue - mine (2016 XRX) is Lucene blue - all sorted with new panel proper colour and correct Tiger transfer
