Doing my own work - trying to save money

Well after 120,000kms, the Speed Triple is in the garage for a rest.

I've got a clutch issue so I'm going to bleed the system and see if that makes any difference.

I've moved house and can now walk to a train station for work. This will allow me to work on the bike and have it in pieces as the S3 was my main transport.

Where can I buy parts online with shipping to Australia. I was quoted chain and sprockets from Triumph at $500!!!

I use Chain Gang in Brissy for all my bikes in the last few years - not the cheapest but I have had much better chain life out of them than anything else I have tried.

A motorcycle is not a fashion accessory.
