 Hi,  If you are talking about the shifter side it is kind of a nuts and bolts type of procedure.  What I found on my 96 Trophy was the button head bolt was shot.  I went on ebay and was forced to buy 10 of them.  Let me know how many you want and where to send them and cost and postage are on me.  Hope this will be helpful.  Steve

if i recall correctly you have to take the panels that  they are mounted on, off the bike to get to the allen bolt (hex socket bolt) heads inside. 
and rather than just tightening them, it's a good idea to file a milimeter or two off the ends of  the bolts before refitting the bolts, because they tend to bottom out in their screw threads and they will come loose again pretty soon...

Re: FOOTPEG BOLT ACCESS?

Triumph Trophy mailing list
When my left rider footpeg came loose I was able to re-tighten it by using a 6mm allen socket on a 1/4 inch drive ratchet, and I was able to get this on the bolt in place by reaching round behind the mount. I think I had to lift the chain out of the way, but it wasn't that hard.
I don't know if the same approach will work on the right side. I'll take a look.

You have to go after it with a 1/4" drive, long extensions, whilst the bike rests on the side stand. I think I used about all the little extensions, and a allen head socket. If you have that come loose a second time you’ll need to take that damn thing all apart, and clean everything. I cleaned the odd looking bolt with alcohol, let it dry, put "Locktight", on the threads, and screwed it in tight about 16-18 years back. Never have had that one again. I carried the little kit for tightening that bolt in my bag ever sense. Until I tore it down and cleaned it, I was fighting with that bolt vibrating loose. It is another small personality issue, from the factory. It has come up over the years on almost every bike, at least 'till it’s properly done. Worse yet, it’s always so messy to deal with on the side of the road. I think I added up about 18" of extensions, then push the chain out of the way. I can’t recall what size or torx vs Allen inset I think it was 6mm? Best advise is take that whole footpeg shifter assembly off the bike clean it up completely, alcohol clean the bolt wearing clean gloves, or hands, and take your time to do a proper job, and it might never bother you again!

Hi Stu,

You can get to it with a 1/4" drive setup with swivels. Loosen it up a bit
so you can get a couple of drops of thread lock on it. Or you will be
revisiting it again. I had to do mine twice. I believe it took two swivels
and three different extentions.

Best wishes,
Samuel
