    Can’t help with your specific question but it’s important to not just get one of the correct pitch etc but also thickness. The sprocket on the 660 is single thickness with no stepped section around the splines.

    That does help.

    The trouble is, being so mechanically inept, I need someone to explain all this stuff to me so thanks1 I just don't understand what all the numbers mean LOL

    I think I've found a generic one anyway, not JT sprocket, but it' from a trusted seller here in UK and shop I have bought Chains and sprockets from before.

    If I remember correctly, I've ordered generic from them before and it's been a JT one that turned up anyway, so might give this a go: https://www.mandp.co.uk/products/565-17-front-sprocket-056517


    It also turns out that the official JT importer and supplier for the UK is based only 10 mins away from my house. So I've contacted them and awaiting a reply, see if they have one in stock and I can collect directly from them.

    I'll update with what happens!

    Hi Mark, how did you discover what part you needed exactly?
    Hey Adam - I went with info from a Facebook post of a Trident 660 owner who had just installed the 17T JT sprocket.  I also saw a post on another forum.  Hope you manage to get hold of one ok, I know they're in really short supply.  I got mine from Amazon in Canada, and since then they've been unavailable here.

    Thamks everyone.

    I've ordered the one from M&P. Generic branding but I'm confident in the service from them so should be ok.

    The OEM chain already has 4k miles on her so this will be a trial run anyway, probably end up changing chain and sprockets around 10k, same as 1st service. That's when i'll decide if I go back to stock or invest in an upgraded 17tooth front sprocket, might even loose one in the rear too. with decent brand and chain .... I do like a nice gold chain  :062:

    Talking of chan=ins, anyone got any experience using a Scottoiler? I'm considering getting one on the TS660 so I don't have to fret about lubing  chain all the time  :027: Never used one before

    My brother in law has had one on every bike he's owned and swears by them.  I've got one sitting in the box but not fitted it yet.  I changed from whatever crap triumph used on the chain, which started rusting the day after it was delivered and before I'd even ridden the bike, to XCP chain lube and it's been rust free since.

    So I'm not sure whether to just return the scottoiler. I went for the Xsystem and it won't fit under the seat, and can't find anywhere else suitable apart from on the back of the pannier support arm to put it.  bikergadgie on YouTube managed to get the ESystem under the seat but it's got a large controller that needs to go on the handlebars.

    Couple of things I'm not sure about is how well it lubes the side plates (and stops rust) and unless you go for the fragile looking scorpion twin dispenser it only lubes one side.  That and how long does it last between rides.

    But I've never heard of anyone who has one and doesn't love it so I guess it must do a good job

     :762: :763:

    I considered the E-system, but I don't want yet another bloody digital display in front of me... start looking like a Charlie McEwan GS wannabe  :008:

    However, I would like something that's more than just gravity fed and fingers crossed it works.

    I feel similar as you, loads of chain lube lying around so use that up first and see how I feel then but  want to start using old engine oil instead of lube anyway, as chain manufacturer's recommend.

    I also know that anyone that has one swears by them so don't know.

    Might have a look at these Osco oilers instead.

    For anyone who is interested, the nut on the drive shaft that holds the front cog is a 36mm  (which apparently is the common size Triumph uses).

    This is the 16t right before it comes off.
