So how's this for good service?

Bavarian (Centurion) still haven't received stock of replacement stanchions, they only have the clamp. But as my stanchions have a gap of 0.25mm they need to replaced, the clamps alone cannot be fitted. So what does Bavarian do? They buy a lot of the aftermarket clamps (the bolt-on ones) and install it as a temporary measure, to be replaced off course when the stanchions arrive. This allows clients to continue riding, and they don't charge a cent for it!

Well done, Bavarian, well done.  :thumleft:

My big concern, BMW press on clamp is not for clamping or crimping the stanchion but for stopping the stanchion from deforming.

No with that pressed on cap, how do you inspect the gap to see if its pulling apart?

Why be concerned?  There are hundreds of other areas on any vehicle that could fail catastrophically where you cannot see it coming anyway.

Well, seeing that the deformation leads to the pulling apart, I'd say it cannot pull apart once the potential deformation is stopped. But, you can always make a mark where the clamp meets the stanchion (or the upper cap) and keep an eye on this slignment mark if you want.

Proof positive that Triumphs are slow!

This joke, yesterday morning by KTM.
Same joke, yesterday afternoon by Yamaha.
Now only, a full day later by Triumph Slowpoke Explorer.   :lol8:

Indeed.  Probably due to shaving a tad too much to save on manufacturing costs.

Received new sanctions with pressed bushes yesterday from Bavarian.
They replaced it in 25 minutes.
Could not even finish my second coffee.
