    I need to change my front tyre. After info on torque values etc. Do the calipers need to be removed.

    You will need to remove one or other.  I remove the offside one. Tie it up to take any strain off the brake pipe. 
    Wheel just rolls right out.   Be careful with the spacers tho’ - they’re not identical.

    here you go, brake calipers need to go off (simple) - this is gen 3, and gen4 is actually same at front.

    Thanks Phil, do you know the torque settings for the calliper bolts and wheel spindle nut?

    You can subscribe to the service manual for $10.78 AUS a month with your VIN number at https://triumphtechnicalinformation.com/ which is decent value.

    Note there are two service bulletins listsed for the Gen 4 too. The well publicised rear bevel box breather and one I hadn't seen mentioned before, bulletin 597 "reroute the main harness". I'll stick some detail on another post on that.

    Sorry Stuffa, I’ve just realised that you have a Gen 4, so I’d better not tell you mine as it’s a Gen 1 and I wouldn’t want to give you incorrect settings. 

    Hopefully someone else will step in & help. 
    Also I’ve no idea if Gen 4 spacers are asymmetric or not.

    Best of luck getting it sorted.
