Thanks markjanemhan for the info. I got the BAFX reader and TuneECU and used it yesterday to reset the service light after changing my oil and filter, no trip to the dealer!
Awesome, glad it worked out for you!  Knowing what dealership shop rates are like, it probably paid for itself in one usage!

Man... 17t out of stock at Amazon.ca and fortnine.ca too.   I even tried the dealer today and they also can't find any stock.  I guess I'll wait and do it when I can get the part!
I contacted JT Sprockets directly the other day, and got a reply from Bike Alert, which I think is their distribution arm.  They said that they are out of stock, but they are on order.  Couldn't give a delivery date yet.  So at least it looks like there will be some in production, hopefully soon.  I want to buy another, to have ready for when it comes time to replace my chain\sprockets. Yes, I do intend keeping this bike for a long time!

do iOS OBD2 units work as well?  I don't see Tune ECU on the App Store... is there an iOS app that works?
TuneECU is only available for Android.  I'm not sure if there are any iOS apps available. This BAFX OBD2 reader is apparently compatible with both Android and Windows, according to the label on the box, but I only have experience of using it with Android.

I tried searching Amazon for that part number and could not find it.  Can you paste a link here?
I got it from Amazon Canada, but it now says it's currently unavailable.  I'd contact JT Sprockets direct: http://www.jtsprockets.com/

I found this one on eBay, same part# so obviously used on multiple different bike brands:  https://www.ebay.ca/itm/263754232549?hash=item3d68fa32e5:g:PKoAAOSw9mFbID16

Somebody posted on another forum that they used a PBI brand sprocket: part# 756-17  Might be worth contacting them to see availability.

On Two Wheels / Isle Of Man TT

For those who are interested in the Isle Of Man TT, the world's most spectacular road racing event, they're offering a ridiculously cheap Live Pass, to view all of the qualifying and all of the races, plus "watch again" and numerous other interesting features.  It's the first year that this has been available.  Info here:

Were they sold as a pair? I assume you ordered them direct and they shipped them internationally to you in Canada?  Their website says limited international shipping depending on weight etc.  How long did it take to get to you?
They do come as a pair.  You use the original spring, pin and circlip.  Shipped from the UK to me in Canada, so they'll definitely ship to US as well.  I received them in a week, which I thought was pretty quick.  Regarding fitting, it was really straightforward.  The only extra thing I had to do was unbolt the plate that the left footpeg attaches to,  as there's not enough room to pull the pin out - it hits the gear shifter pivot.  Dead simple, just the two bolts.

Fitted these comfortable foot pegs today.  Very happy with them, exactly as advertised.  Bought them from https://www.triumphparts.co.uk/ 
Part# F162
Their listing isn't updated yet to include the TS660, but these fit perfectly

might just go with what Mark's got with the smaller one, although I don't think I could cope with those silver screws on a black screen.  Sharpie time!
Yep, I hear you Billy!  I've blacked them out since that video!

I'd rather have clean air than buffeting around my head.  I'm 5'8" (172cm) so if any of you are around that height, please let me know what your experiences are like with the bike.
Hey Tom, hope you join the TS660 addicts soon!  Regarding buffeting from the screen, at 5'8" I would think you'll be pretty much OK.  Most of the wind flow will go over top of your helmet, especially with the screen at max height.  I'm 6'2" and it's a different story.  I found the wind hit me square in the helmet, with considerable buffeting.  I switched out the stock screen for a short Powerbronze one, which a) I find esthetically more pleasing, and b) being a much shorter screen, the wind now hits me in the chest rather than the head, just like it always did on all my naked bikes, so as far as I'm concerned, it's a win-win!
