Kwacka thanks for the link for the pins. Would you happen to know if they fit both Gen 1 and Gen 2 Explorers? Thanks.

I wondered that myself as wanting to fit some on my Gen-2, so decided to go back up to the main menu for the Tex to see if there were options - and there is a warning at the top of the main menu for Explorers which reads:
"Tiger Explorer models upto 2015 only! Unless Model/Year Specific In The Title!"

http://www.squaredeals-ltd.co.uk/tiger-1200-explorer-876-c.asp

Now....that's not to say they won't fit I guess, but they haven't tried.....

I'm fairly sure that there's no difference between gen 1 and 2, but check with squaredeals. I think gen 3 are probably the same as well.
I guess an easy way to check is to look at the part numbers on 'World of Triumph' or other parts fiche sites.

Thanks Hawkeye and Kwaka. Both good suggestions. Seems like it's worth doing. Cheers!

According to World of Triumph the Gen 1 and Gen 2 rear brake pin part numbers are the same, i.e. PFKL1203370

 :460: Thanks for that Tiger885  :152:

Just looked on the Probolt site and you can get Titanium ones for the same price (well 0.02p cheaper) as the Stainless ones from SquareDeal - so think I may get the Probolt Titanium ones instead

https://www.pro-bolt.com/titanium-caliper-pin-rear-x2-natural-titanium-3.html

If you prefer stainless, then the Probolt ones are cheaper at £10.51

Decisions, Decisions!
