Suspension query New Owner S3 R..2014MY
I'm back again Speedy no 3... (must stop selling good bikes! - 2009 model and 2011 model)
I've just purchased a 2014 S3 R.
Its been lowered. It has an adjustable linkage at the rear and the forks have been dropped through the yokes.
Can someone pls take a pic of their std rear bottom linkage so I can compare. I’m guessing it’s only the ‘adjustable’ linkage on mine that needs changing or adjusting..?
Can anyone tell me std settings please. How much of the fork is above the top clamp?
and what is the ‘length’ of the std linkage- say hole centre to centre..? (what do i measure for the rear?)
I appreciate the front is an easy loosen, measure and refasten but what do i need to do to the rear. Should i replace the adjustable linkage or buy a new 'triumph std one. Anything that will have been altered..???
When i sold my 2011 S3 i gave away all my manuals etc... = dummy.
...and it only has 8k's but is a 2014 - should i get a proper dealer service (no dealer service except initial one!) and rear suspension bushes etc sorted (as per rumours of seizing etc)...??
any help greatly appreciated.
BTW when i went off track it was for a ST3RS (Too buzzy) then Monster 1200 (sh*t fuelling and handling despite spending a fortune) and KTM Superduke 1290 (bits kept dropping off!)
I love Trumpys!
