    Hey
    Looking to order one of these from underboat96. I’m assuming the longer handle doesn’t hit or catch the wheel rim/tyre at all? The C spanner supplied is more likely to do damage due to it slipping around in the handle

    From what I can recall Joe.
    The longer handle makes life much easier mate.

    I was thinking that if it were an issue someone would have mentioned it

    Nope!
    Just an allround better tool for the job mate.
    I guess the reason Triumph supplied that shite 2 piece thing. Is because the longer version wouldn't fit in the tool kit pouch.

    I can recommend Underboat96 C spanners highly. Well made and do the job effortlessly :)

    i"ve got one too and also a chain monkey.
    Chain monkeys are flippin' great so WELL recommended!
    Just set up the "monkey" on notch 2.5 (only do this once on it), slacken the bolt, slacken the chain, insert the monkey, tighten the chain as tight as you can, do up the bolt THEN take off the monkey.
    Chain is perfectly set as the slack is put into the chain when the monkey is removed.
    Perfect every time and takes 3 mins.

    I was given one of these & trying to figure if I should be taking off the plastics dome but cover as this digs into the chain & effects the slack set. It’s an early one just never used. Hmm

    Yep, the plastic dome bit comes off and thrown away when you get it/use it. I think it says it on the back of the packet?
    Genuinely, a great bit of kit.
