"Other" parts that fit our bikes

This thread is for posting details of items off other bikes that can be used on our bikes.

Post the item and manufacturer, details of installation, notes on ease of fitment, and ooooh, all that good stuff.

NOTE: To keep the thread easy to follow, "ooh ah" comments and general chit chat will be removed, but please post comments on how you feel about your own fitment in your post.

Good idea, but what do you mean by "fit"? I have an XS speedo on my Scrambler (ala paulhdick), but that required some modifications to work (Tiger handlebar clamps and a fabricated bracket).



The write up is here. I did not install the connector. I spliced into the old speedometer harness. If you ask Paul real nice, he will provide a bracket for a nominal fee (well worth it). The speedometer is only US$65, however the Tiger parts are quite expensive (US$150 or so).

Brake calipers

The Bonnie uses Nissin calipers. The front can be found on a later model Honda VTX 1300 and has a good parts breakdown. The rear is a caliper from a Honda ST1100 . A Honda dealer can get the parts pretty fast.

Sure would like to find cheaper brake and clutch levers.

EBC makes front and rear brake rotors which can be ordered from about any bike dealer. Chains and sprockets from the usual suspects .

WOO-Hoo thanks for the props and for doing this as a sticky. I think this will go over pretty big from what I've seen over the last couple of years from other posters. There are quite a few parts that will fit our bikes for a whole lot less than Triumph wants, and I'm sorry to say....better quality. My first contribution will be the Yamaha YSF pegs. Front and rear pegs ran me $25, total, and I'm very happy with them. Triumph wants $68 PER peg and they have a nasty habit of breaking off. Do a search and you'll see quite a few horror stories. Here's what they look like and they come in different colors to match your color scheme.

Yamaha VMAX mirrors fit on bonneville mirror stalks and look very good and more importantly make it easy to see behind you.

brakes and rotors

Taken from a post by uzidzit

Bonneville useful Brake Information Part Numbers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know most of you have seen the EBC Pro-Lite floating rotor for the front of the Bonneville from newbonneville, bellacoursa etc. if you need one quick I got mine from Dennis Kirk, even though they do not list it, bike bandit also has it much cheaper if you know what to get.

So here is the skinny,
Order a LEFT HAND rotor for a Honda CBR600F2 (91-94), this is the same part the above retailers sell, for the Bonneville.

This along with a EBC solid rear and HH sintered Pads Is a super up grade for the factory warp-o-matic rotors!!

Ps warm your bolts for removal and re-install with 242 locktite @ 22Nm... I said warm not incinerate the bolts, and loosen with an impact screwdriver and good quality 6mm allen socket an you will not have to replace those $6.00 screws!!! Yes $6.00 each screw....ouch

EBC Part #'s
Pro-Lite front rotor MD601LS
rear rotor MD663
Rear Pads FA2142HH (sintered), FA2142 (organic)
front pads FA196HH

ADDED MAR 08 BELOW NOTE:
ps I have come around to thinking that the organic is the way to go for the rear pads the hh is too aggressive, and just makes it too easy to lock the rear, so HH UP FRONT, ORGANIC IN REAR.

YSF Pegs?

[QUOTE=SHRuuM;1167359]<snip>My first contribution will be the Yamaha YSF pegs. Front and rear pegs ran me $25, total, and I'm very happy with them.<snip>

Hi SHRuum...I looked all over and can't find a deal on YSF pegs anywhere. Mebbe YZF? Either way I'd like to get 4 pegs for $25 bucks....can you post a link to where we can get 'em?

Thanks,
BLIGHT:
BTW, yer bike looks great!

Thruxton Peg Alternative

Never mind...it is the YZF peg. Apparently it fits all modern R6's and R1's, and even a lot of Hondas and Kawasakis too.

Just ound some really neat footpeg alternatives (I don't like the old-fart OEM pegs much) for the Thruxton, besides I hear the stockers can snap off...they appear to be weak die-cast aluminum, not forged like most other bikes. Poop!

Here's a billet peg I really like...especially the silver ones:

http://www.pitposse.com/possefootpegs.html



I think they go for $29.95 USD per pair, but I think they are very nice indeed! You can even adjust the foot-pad area angle by rotating it and locking it down to suit your riding and boot position.

Cheers,
BLIGHT:

rear shocks

Kawasaki ZRX 1100 and 1200,

KYB shocks fit the Bonneville. These shocks are Thruxton length and you will need to use the stock bushings on either the top or the bottom mount, sorry I can't remember which one.
