I second this - their website isnt fantastic, but the quality of their work is seriously impressive, and well worth the wait. Certainly worth firing them an email, and seeing if they can sort you out

Examined the break and it was a pretty clean snap-off, no jagged edges, no evidence of prior damage.

A half inch steel shaft snapping like a carrot??!!! Very strange...

All I can think of is that the shaft must have been defective from the factory.

The bike is out of warranty, but I think that Triumph should still warranty the work and parts. After all, how many shifter shafts have you ever heard of just snapping off?

However, chances are they won't warranty it, unfortunately.

Anyone got a spare shifter shaft for a 2010 lying around?

I am aggressive with the shifter and also have the quickshifter fitted. I saw the long exposed end of the shifter shaft and the recess for the circlip as a built in weak point or at least a good lever to wear out the bearing/seal in the case so fitted the Sato Racing shifter shaft support the moment they offered it for the 675. Now I know it was good insurance.



(The stock sprocket cover still fits over it and you can barely see it)

As a side effect it tightened up the shifter action without making it any firmer/harder.

Go with an integrated tail light and ditch the seperate signals altogether.

I'm not a fan of turn signals integrated in the tail light. I believe it's a lot more difficult for people to notice if your turn signal is on or not. Not to mention, it won't legally pass safety inspection here in VA because the signals have to have 6" between the left and right turn signals.

I have to be careful here... Kind of like talking to a kid who still believes in Santa Clause... but there is no way anyone will not be able to tell my turn signal is on. You might make a case that they won't be able to tell which direction I'm turning, but at the distance where that would be the case, it wouldn't make a difference for any practical purpose. They'd still know I intend to turn, and as they get closer, they will then clearly see which direction.

As for the six inches between left and right, you can make a case (since the lights in the tail light themselves are over 6" I believe) that since the last LEDs to the left are six inches from the last LEDs on the right, you meet that requirement.

But I'm obviously not going to sway your beliefs and you're probably right about not risking running afoul of VA laws. You don't need that hassle. Guess you'll just have to find some smaller signals than what you've got now.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong but I find your opening statement condescending and bad form.

Fact is that the integrated tail light is only DOT legal as far as the brake light in concerned. The Turn signal function does not comply and there are many instances of states that have vehicle inspections for bikes rejecting them. In a state like VA that has tough inspection laws its best not to risk it. Better to not have signals at all because they are not required then to have signals installed that don't comply because if they are there, they must meet inspection requirements.

"Signal lamps installed on the rear of the motorcycle shall be red or amber and shall be located on each side of the vertical centerline of the motorcycle as far apart as practicable but not closer than nine inches, measured from the optical centerline of the lens, and shall be located on the same level and not less than 20 inches above the ground level. "

Oh yeah ... that is what i'm going to fit as soon as the shifter shaft is replaced.

Apparently the Sato Shift shaft support is a little hard to get though....

The shifter shaft is also unavailable here in AU, so it has to be ordered in from the UK... which means a long wait for it to arrive.

No riding until it's fixed...
