Am I missing a spring?

I am stripping the bike down and cleaning everything/ maintenance to make sure the bike is 100% for next race season.

I can't seem to recall if there was a spring here in the pic or not....I would imagine that their has to be because otherwise the throttle body blades would not be aligned. Or does one of the throttle cables of the two pull a little earlier to make sure they are matched up?

I know before I took the throttle bodies off they were all aligned when I twisted the throttle. I just want to make sure if I did lose a spring that I get it replaced.

I've seen those missing from the factory on several bikes (not just Triumph).

Interesting.....well it must have been there before I lost it because the blades were all in sync before I started taking them off. Good thing I have 7 months until race season hahaha.

The second spring holds the linkage together. The first spring holds tension on the throttle synch screw so it doesn't move or vibrate out.

Is this the only one or are there more? Like one in between each intake on the throttle body?

No only two, the first linkage controls the first two throttle bodies together and the second linkage is for the 3rd throttle body.

i think it help the other spring to keep the bolt static and avoid his rotation,
it's the bolt that manage the throttle alignment, if it rotate because of vibrations or so, it's a problem...

you do better to get a new spring and check throttle adjustment with tuneECU

edit: damn, i was too slowy...
