Hello, I need your help, the donuts and the leaf on my triumph vitesse was in a very bad state. So i decide to change it. I bought new donuts and found an old original leaf in very good condition. Now i try to reassemble but without success. I can't attach the vertical link to the leaf. The drive shaft (inner shaft) touch the chassis an blocked the rotation of the vertical link to allowe to attach the vertical link on the leaf. When i remove the inner shaft, i can attach the vertical link on the leaf. I already used the tool to raise the leaf so i don't understand why i'm blocked. I'd like to know if you have some tips and tricks to reassemble. If you want, i 'll make some photo to explain my problem. Thanks for your answer Alex
Hi, was wondering if anyone has ever had a drive shaft rub on the chassis when it is at its lowest point of travel. My right hand one has a definite rub mark around it's circumference and the chassis has signs of the paint being worn off and is rusty. The left hand side doesn't show the same ware. I am currently changing the UJ's which I have sourced fro the club shop. Had changed them a couple of years ago with ebay items but feel they didn't solve the problem with knocking. The reason i know that the shaft is rubbing is because I painted the chassis when changing the ujs last time. Or is this normal. Thanks.
