Credit and thanks on this one belong to longtimbers in Devon UK. He is the one that first posted up about this issue after having a jamb-up on track!

Damn...thanks for the heads-up everyone. I'll be re-checking mine again tonight (and applying loctite).

Riding a motorcycle is like playing chess; anyone can learn the moves, but it takes a lifetime to master the game.

I installed the Pitbull too (love it bye the way) and kept the stock damper on as I thought it couldn't hurt to have two dampers working to on different axis...I'll be removing the stock damper on my next day off.

Great heads up,

Michael

Heres what I found last night....bike is brand new 07 with less than 400 kms...
the left side bolt was FINGER tight...it would have vibed loose in know time...the right side required a wrench with MINIMAL effort.
Loctite applied and some torque applied.
Someone should let Triumph know...crashing is serious! :(

Can't say positively because I have Sharkskinz, but I think so - from underneath with a couple of long extensions on a socket. You have to turn the wheel to one lock then the other to access each bolt (which you will see once you get back to your bike is why they can fowl the lower triple clamp).

I just finished with mine and yes the bolts are easily accessible with the stock bodywork. On the right side you will just need to loosen and rotate the horn out of the way.

Mine were still tight but I gave them the Locktite treatment anyway. Thanks Just Bob and Longtimbers for the heads-up.

Interesting; my bike is an 07 and those bolts are Torx head, not standard bolts. I wonder if they changed something?
