    When it is made of brass or bronze, you can go to someone with a lathe so he can make you a new one and in the other case when it s a needle roller bearing you

      When it is made of brass or bronze, you can go to someone with a lathe so he can
      make you a new one and in the other case when it's a needle roller bearing you
      can go to a bearing specialist and see whether or not there is one that has the
      same dimensions.

      You're talking about number 10, so it must be made of brass or bronze isn't it ?

      Good luck

      It is the plated steel similar to the wheel spindles I believe. It is certainly plated, evidenced by the wear it has suffered - it is down to the white metal

        It is the plated steel similar to the wheel spindles I believe. It is certainly plated, evidenced by the wear it has suffered - it is down to the white metal (steel!?) beneath the plating. And being the swing arm pivot (which obvisouly doesn´t (habitually) rotate through 360º) it is worn in ridges corresponding to the rollers (needles) of the bearing. Worst thing, and this is why i´m labouring the point, i have lost (inadvertantly disposed of?) the old sleeve :-(

        I would really like it if this were The Reason i have to go and buy the lathe...

        The bike is eight years old and we´re already abandoned by Triumph into making our own replacement parts???? I have more faith .. i merely need to know the number of that part which it is proposed replaces T2056992.... T please....

        And this is the ...Riders group, and presently i´m not a rider! :-(((

        :-)
