What I did with my T3 today.
I've stolen this idea from the Hinkley Classic Triples forum where I've enjoyed reading it and picked up a few good tips. It's a place where we can post updates on modifications, rides, servicing, anything we do with our bikes, and if we all get behind it it should stay near the top of the threads and encourage more to get involved.
On that note I should start.
After my recent spark plug unscrewing issues I fitted a new set of plugs. To do the job I bought a new 18mm plug socket from Hazet Tools. This is a real slim socket which fits real neat allowing a positive feel on the plug so I hope they will be ok now.
On firing the bike up, it wouldn't run well and stalled whenever I used the throttle. I thought it was the vacuum line on the back of the fuel tap kinked when I refitted the tank and was right.
With that sorted I took the old girl for a ride up the old highway and all felt good. I'm happy with the feel of the recently fitted Metzler Sportec tyres and loving the sound of the Trident Exhaust mufflers.
