    In the process of re-positioning the location of the ignition switch to the RHS, I discovered that the lead was too short. Classic problem for a 2001 Bonneville. Eventually I came to the conclusion that the easiest solution would be to extend the ignition main switch lead to 18 inches in total...

    Need a new tank for my bike, but I’m not sure if other model/year Bonneville tanks fit. mine is a 2002 standard, not the T100, but I’m flexible as to what tank to replace it with. Any info greatly appreciated. The current tank had some kind of liner put in it, now it flaking off inside and...

    Had my 2012 Bonneville SE for major service a few weeks ago at non-dealer shop. I was quite happy with the work done until I noticed a bolt on the engine case missing! I tried finding it in the diagrams but had no luck. It is on the engine case just above the front sprocket. Does anyone know...

    I hang my head in shame. I've finally completed rebuilding the carbs on my 2001 Bonneville, but, having let weeks pass since disassembly, I can't remember how to reconnect the fuel and tank vent tubes! I've got two rubber lines, one pre-shaped and the other flexible. Which do I connect to the...

    My local shop has a set of used Predators taken off a 2012 Bonneville. The price is great but I have an 07 non-EFI Bonneville. It’s a Triumph shop but they didn’t mention anything about jets, etc. wondering what will need to be done and whether it’s worth going this route. The price is unbeatable.

    So, I'm finding it surprisingly difficult to confirm the stock handlebar measurements for my 2014 T100. There are various numbers floating around, and although I've found this chart posted in a couple of threads here I am not entirely confident in it...

    Recently bought a set of new clutch plates, springs and clutch cable for my 76 tiger 750, i’ve installed them and adjusted the springs, operating mechanism and cable but i can’t seem to get the lever to pull back smoothly. Ive watched lunmads videos on youtube and read the workshop manual and i...

    Hi there! I was wondering if more T100 riders have the problem of their mirrors (original) moving inwards when increasing acceleration or at high speeds? (above 120km/h - 75 mp/h). And if anyone has a solution for this... The original mirrors are (in my opinion) weirdly fitted with a single...

    Great to find a group of like minded Triumph lovers. Let me introduce my newly acquired pair of Bonnie's, a '69 and a '70. As they are in the photos is as I got them three weeks back. They are in a generally good condition but lots of work to do to get them 100%.

    Hey guys I fitted LED indicators, motogadget m blaze pins, on a ‘19 T100. All was well for awhile, then when I opened up the headlight the other day to take off a yellow film I put on, I look over an hour later and the left hand side indicators are just on. Not blinking, but dimly lit. If I turn...

    Hi! I was so tired of leaks in my beautiful Triumph America. Decided to kick-off a reform project to redesign and manufacture a set of new Camshaft holder caps, which are the main issue for leaking Triumph twins. Made of HQ aluminium. There is a set of 10+ pieces to be sold to cover my...

    Who is a great (technically skilled, experienced, fair-priced, super honest) Triumph mechanic or repair shop in the NYC area? P.S. Pardon if this is a naive question that has already been answered elsewhere or I am not following some other etiquette of the site. I just joined the site today...

    Hello Riders, After a long ride to PA, I realized the chain of my 2017 T100 had an excessive amount of slack (over the 30 mm recommendation). I tried to adjust it but I reached the maximum position on the rear wheel. Now, the issue is that I only have 11,000 miles on that chain which seems...

    Hi, I am having this problem forever. Here goes my description: 1) I turn the key. The ignition on, pump on. All seems ready. 2) I push the starter. I heard a click of the solenoid and nothing goes. The battery is healthy and full. I replaced the solenoid and nothing changed. Also the...

    Hi there Triumph Rats! I ride a Triumph T100 EFI from '08. I have had a lot of interesting reads from this forum, so I thought it was time to start an account and join the discussions! I live in Amsterdam in the Netherlands and am planning on taking the bonnie through the whole of Europe in the...

    I’ve never owned a Triumph but I have a chance to get a 2017 Bobber with about 3500 miles on it for 6500$. I don’t know much about resale values on this brand so was wondering if Triumph riders thought this was a good deal.
