    Hey all. I noticed on my ride this weekend that the shifter lever sometimes fails to return to home position when up-shifting. Is there a spring on the outside linkages? I did see that there is a spring on the shifter shaft on the inside behind the clutch from my Haynes manual. Anyone have...

    Boredom set in and with it came some frame clean up. I got rid of a few mounting tabs, passenger pegs, which also led to relocating the battery, fuse box, wiring and i kinda have a crab claw for a left hand so I had to include moving ignition to right side. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my side...

    Hi Everyone, so, i have posted recently about a 'possible coil issue', which garnished a modicum of helpful/informative replies.

    So, I have an 02 triumph bonneville america. Pipes sound mean as hell, sounds like a European race car. I noticed a lot of my hoses were dry rotted, so I changed them out.
