Hello diddylord

Please could you let me know if they are balanced or offset when on the bike and, in either case, what was the width of the bike with them fitted? Thanks.

Hi again,
Im a bit stuck here. Now I understand I need to remove throttle bodies.
Do I need to remove the injectors and stepper motor?
Is there any pressure still in the system?
What part do I need to remove next? First time working on something like this
Thanks!

Stainless adjuster bolts, copper greased when fitted. Haven't had any problems with them seizing.

Probably be ok, they aren't tightened as such. You may have noticed Triumph do not fit St/St screws into alloy, there is good reason.

If you want a great cleaner then can't go wrong with https://shinysauce.com/

Beats Muc-off by a mile and most other cleaners I have tried, the guy that created it valets bikes for a living so knows his stuff, PH neutral and can be used on any surface as long as cold, same as all other cleaners.
I also tried it on car alloys and is amazing, but on the bike it is perfect.

After drying the bike I use either XCP or ACF50 but via a spray gun so it mists onto the bike and finds it's way into the all the bits you can't get to with a normal spray or cloth

You don't take the spindle out and then roll the wheel forward to release the chain? It's the way I've always done it, no need to readjust the chain afterwards then.

So you don't remove, clean & re-grease the adjuster either. Like said previously, no wonder so many are seized in swingarms. It's been posted up on here so many times yet people still persist in not maintaining that adjuster. Have you not read the last few posts.
