I was making a set up for myself and decided to make a few extras since the machine was set for them. If anyone is interested I'll do a full set for $60 shipped. $35 for a front or rear set. I think I made 5 extra sets. For the 06-12? bikes.

Yup, no experience required. They seat behind the seal and just hang in when the wheel pops out. You do need to grind a bit off the circ-clips on the front wheels or the backs of the spacers will get chewed up. With the rear wheel it's just pop them in and go. Saves so much time on a job that usually needs 3 hands.

Going to make up a few more sets this weekend. 4 of the 5 extra sets I made are sold. I've almost got the rear underslung caliper bracket finished as well. Stay tuned.

Hey Nathan,

Got the captive spacers today - thanks much!

Since I've had a set of bearings ready to go (and recently bought a proper bearing seating tool) I decided to do the bearings as well.

For anyone who hasn't done this before - it's pretty easy - especially if you put the bearings in the freezer and heat the wheel hub. Having the correct tools helps too.

Anyway - thanks again!
Received my spacers today thanks Nathan! :thumbup:

I asked the same question before I bought my set. :( I'll buy another set of only rears if you're doing that now. Pm me a price.

Aww man, I totally read that pm wrong. I thought you were asking if I would go with two sets of rear spacers or would one be enough if they pop out easy enough. Totally my bad.

Received mine on Monday. Thank you!

Do you know if the spacers are different on a 13 vs the earlier generation? I'm thinking I want some captive spacers for my track bike too.
I'm not sure. I would guess they would be pretty similar as it's cheaper for triumph to keep parts standard from year to year but someone with a newer bike would need to takes some measurements to confirm. The fronts might be the same but the rear is most likely different.

Oh for the love of dog, PLEASE make rears for the new gen bikes! I wrestled with my ******* rear wheel last night for what seemed like forever and finally got it back on. But that thing OWNED me like a little ***** for at least 30 mins!

Felt like tossing the wheel as far as I could at times. Like on those Strongman Games on ESPN Classic with the 7' Russian meatheads wearing wrestling tights throwing trees and cows around like pebbles.
Haha. I need rear spacers to mock up or at least very good measurements of them. If I can get those I can make spacers for the newer models.
