What bobbins did you use for your Bobber and how did you remove the factory installed plugs ?
Bobbins are what you install on your bike to lift the rear of bike if you didn't know. There are factory installed plugs to protect threads.
Also does anyone know this thread size ?

Thanks from USA

I PM'd you on this topic.

Bobbins I have were from a Triumph bought part.

Removing the plug, small flat blade screwdriver and ease them out.

I can recommend the TEC axil bobbins

I donít keep them on the bike the whole time but for winter or when I need to get the back wheel off the ground itís a simple two minute job to fix and they work great for most things although adjusting the chain is a little awkward.

I did originally try Triumphís bobbins but unfortunately they didnít work well with my short paddock stand. I found with the mounting point being below the axle it took a fare bit of muscle to get the rear wheel off the ground! I also found the metal hooks on the stand left scratch marks on the black bobbins, which is not a great look.
