Triumph speedo cable
« on: 24.02. 2018 07:35 »
Does anyone know if the end fittings on a Triumph speedo cable will fit a BSA S/A ?
Speedometer Cable - Triumph 5T, T100, 6T, T110, T120, TR6  https://www.feked.com/speedometer-cable-triumph-5t-t100-6t-t110-t120-tr6.html 
The BSA ones, 081 (41") is a little too short and the 085 (46" + ¾") is a little too long.
The Triumph cable is 44".

I am sorry I can't answer your question, but Speedgraph Richfield  https://tinyurl.com/ydbgkuuv will make you a cable to the exact length you need. For some reason the Rev counter cable on my RGS needs to be longer than the cables sold by BSA spares stockist. That is where I always get mine made up. Takes about a week.

Hi Roy, I don't know if Andrew (Priory) is open for selling parts at the moment but have a look at his list of speedo cables. If he's not open you'll find the info you need there. I bought one last year from him for my 1960 GF s/arm with a chronometric. Fits perfectly.

Go to bottom of the page and in red 2nd table up from bottom. (Edit) Table heading is Valve Lifter??? *conf*  but it's for BSA speedo cables & it also specifies the ones that fit Triumph.


Hope it helps.

That's the one Roger, 3'8" also fits Triumph.

To fit B31/B33 (1958-60), A7/A10 (A10RR/A10SR with cowl) (1958-62), A50/A65 (1962 on).

Triumph - 5T/T100/6T/T110/T120 (1954-62), TR6 (1955-62).
