Starting from scratch it seems

Just bought a 2001 TT600 and have been basically doing the whole look through for what needs to be fixed and adjusted and so on. Mostly curious if anyone has good links on where to find parts (OEM or best performance). Only downfall to this is that I am a college student on a budget. But I am looking for a manual first off. If anyone has any tips or links or so on, that would be more than greatly appreciated.

I would suggest eBay for a factory manual, as a starting point.

I've looked on bike bandit. It is just really ridiculous for the prices they are asking. But that's part of it I guess. The previous owner ruined the side fairings with some red monster vinyls though too.

I bought a 2004 D600 a month ago, with issues too. I what I have done is get a manual from ebay, download pdf. I have also bought some used parts from ebay. I have become friendly with a triumph dealer parts guy and he usually gives me a discount 10 to 20 %. I also use bikebandit.com. I down loaded the TuneECU and that was helpful. But the tt is carbs. Post some pics and do some videos of your progress. I have been doing some hoping that it will help others with similar problems.

Just so you all know, the ebay download is an illegal copyright infringement. Whether or not Triumph choose to pursue those things is up to them, but let's keep this place clear of those things in preparation for the day they decide to crack down.

The TT is not carbs. It is Sagem injection instead of Kiehin injection.

Aha!! Loophole! The discs are shipped from Canada which has no copyright laws, which is why Limewire lasted so long. Or at least that is my understanding.

For minor fairing & body repair, the best 2 products on the planet are "Plastex" and Brownell's "Acraglas." Plastex can be used to fuse plastic pieces together, strengthen weak parts, re-create broken tabs, etc. The Acraglas is for bedding rifle stocks, but is very useful as a "bondo" or a putty. I downed my bike on the left side (~30mph) couple years back, and repaired my lower fairing 100%. Wish I had before/after pictures, but all it needed was paint. My finished pics are in the Pics thread, so you can see the results.

***A good site for the Manual is from ebay, or triumph1.com. Triumph1 also has metal fuel quick-connects there. (the OEM plastic ones are HORRIBLE).
