    Can anyone tell me the correct length of the speedo trip shaft.The one supplied by my speedo repairer is about 7″ long , but when fitted it either disappears down the back of the headlight or I have to bring it forwardwhere it rests on the headlight bracket/bolt.This means that the shaft must be bent.The repairer (Gaggs) assured me that it is the correct shaft .

    Er… No, would be my answer..
    It should just protrude outside the bottom of the binnacle.
    (I’ll go outside later and measure it.. It’s in a box somewhere as I use the very short “unlengthened ” version as I take the speedo out of the binnacle once a year and zero the tripmeter.)

    1/4″ in old money..

    Presumably you could shorten yours?

    Hope that helps..

    Thanks for your trouble.I thought it hould be somewhere between 4 and 5. inches,but as I said,the repairer insisted the one he supplied was correct.

    When I bought my first T160 new in 1975, it had the very long speedo trip shaft.  I eventually changed that to a very short one so as to not sideload the gauge or scratch the headlight.  I believe your repairer is correct.

    Thanks Mike and Frank for your replies. I have been in touch with the repairer and he says he will shorten the shaft to whatever length I want,while I wait.This kind of service and attitude is very rare these days and I cannot praise them enough.
