When I restored my TR250 I ordered new door retainers (straps) from TRF. Installation was of course not very difficult. But….whenever either door is opened there is a very loud audible “bang” as the retainer “snaps” down to hold the door in its’ open position. I’ve oiled and greased every point on the mechanism I could but it still “bangs" upon opening either door??? Very annoying…. Anyone else have this problem….and anyone have a solution??? Thanks.

There was a recent string on that issue. As I understood it, the replacement straps are not the same as OEM. The part that grabs on to the two horizontal bars is too tight and perhaps the curve is slightly different. Try http://www.triumphexp.com/phorum/read.php?7,1424874
