New to list as of right now. Just found this list after years of ownership and lurkin around.

I too think an 'unoffical interchangability list' would be a "Good Thing"

Finished rebuilding the front of my '98 Executive recently and found that the front headlight assembly from the older Suzuki GSX1000 dual headlight setup is idenditcal.
$25 bucks for the whole thing from the wrecker, including bulbs!!.

Anybody have a cheap cross for the dang temp sending unit?
I'm on my third one @ $35 from Triumph!!

Horns - Aftermarket dual tone Fiamms are cheap and loud

Levers as mentioned, aftermarket Kawi bits were $10 ea. from the local shop. Mine were actually quite worn at the pivot after 48K miles

I simply tapped out the tank mounting bracket welded nuts to the next size up as they, and the bolts, were completely stripped from the design. (To prevent stripping you would need to support the tank weight each time you unbolt it, I never did this umteen times over.)

Very loose shifter linkage is next up on my list of fix it's.

'98 Executive with lot's o bits. (I'll only list this ***** once I promise)
front fender ext
fork tube getters
tall windscreen
throttle meisters
superbike gel grips
genmar risers
tank bra - woo hoo!
corbin with pass seatback
rear rack
dual snorkels
nixed CA smog stuff
open airbox
rear brake blinker leds
custom aluminum chainguard
polished wheel - rim sides only
Upgraded front brake pads (it's true, it makes a big difference)
dual fiamms
flush front binkers

etc. ad nosium

Any cross overs for the mirrors or rear blinkers on a Sprint Executive? Will any of the Trophy items fit?

If you can't beat em, join em.
Then kill them in their sleep.

According to Bike Bandit, rear blinkers are the same for Sprint Execs & Trophies w/ serial 29156 & above. Looks like Platinum, BRG, & Pacific Blue are the colors that match between the models. Part numbers for the mirrors don't match.

Looking at the design of the Exec/Trophy rear blinkers, I wonder if there aren't some generic aftermarket flushmounts that would fit. Same with the mirrors: Dennis Kirk sells a lot of 3rd-party fairing-mount mirrors. I'm just throwing these ideas out there, let us know if you find anything.

Allright. Thanks. Because the last thing I want to do is buy OEM forks from Triumph. Now the search for good 43mm forks is on.

¬°Ay caramba! I was looking at the price of caliper seals & they may be the most extortionately priced items in motorcycling! (Well, with the exception of chrome & carbon fiber bits.)

$36 for 4 bloody o-rings?!?! I mean, it's not a whole lot of money, but it's outrageous for what you get.

So, here's a question: Does anyone know if the $8.00 rebuild kits for Nissin twin-piston front calipers from a Suzuki DR-Z 400 will fit the Nissin twin-piston rear calipers on our bikes?

Edit: Same question, except Honda CBR600 F2 or F3? (Same kit for both.)

Yeah, it seems that the six pot calipers from a suzuki hayabusa will fit. Triumph use more than one diameter for front discs though. Look through this section, there are more discussions on brake interchangeability.

Cheers........... :hammer:

I just swapped my rear caliper out for one I got from eBay & cleaned up. (Amazing how much nicer the rear brake is when the pistons go all the way back in. :razz: )

Anyway, that's not why I'm posting here. I'm posting here because I'm ordering a set of seals for a CBR600 F3. I will attempt to use those to rebuild the old caliper. If it works, we'll know they work. If not, I'll be out $7.75. :wink:

Anyone know of a Trident Clutch master cylinder replacement? It sucks that they made the trident so different compared to the other T3s...

Eh? Trident clutch master is the same as the other T3 bikes, as well as the hydraulic-clutch Triumph cruisers. I think the MC currently on my ride came from an Adventurer, but it might have been a T-bird. AFAIK, they have different part numbers for the assemblies because the levers are different. I might be willing to sell my original Trident MC if you're interested, but I'd have to find it first...

Kawi/Nissin masters from bikes with compatible levers will fit, but they look different & have the fluid level windows in the wrong place.
