  1. Classic, Vintage & Veteran
    My first posting here in this excellent forum where I have already read so much good advice, so, a thank-you in advance for all the shared experience and I hope you can offer some ideas and suggestion to my points below. I’ve been biking on and off (in every sense) for fifty years. Each...
  2. Water Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    Right... I posted a few weeks ago asking for advice as my street twin had begun to make a metallic whurring noise at around 4000rpm (in any gear & neutral). No other noticeable/related issues ie drop off in power etc etc. The resounding response was "its under warranty, just take it back to...
  3. Water Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    I recently changed the tires on my street twin. Got the wheels back, threw them back on, then headed out... I cant see how it would be related, but after a few miles I began to notice a strange (and loud) wurring noise at around 3500rpm. Initially I thought it may have been the air vibrating...
  4. Speed Triple Forum
    Hey everyone! I recently purchased my first Triumph in the form of a lovely Sulphur Yellow Speed Triple. Unfortunately I only had the bike a week before I had clutch issues. I tear into it and turns out the clutch nut had come loose. I ordered a new one and installed it but it doesn't seem quite...
  5. Air Cooled Cruisers - America, Speedmaster
    Hi there. My Speedmaster 865 has a slippery clutch due to worn out plates. Couldn't find a thread about the actual replacement job. Want to give it a go anytime soon. Any advise on this job is welcome. Tnx in advance.
  6. Street Triple Forum
    Considering getting some new levers for my 2014 Street Triple R. I really dig the OEM shorty levers, but the only place I've found that has them is selling them for $180. If I'm going to pay that price I'm wondering if another brand might offer better bang for the buck?
  7. Classic, Vintage & Veteran
    I changed the clutch plates and springs. Adjusted the cable and now find that, although the outer cap plate lifts evenly when pulling the clutch lever, the rear wheel is still not rotating when in gear. Am I missing something about this? There were some wear marks in the clutch basket grooves...

  9. Maintenance Tips and Tricks for your Sprint
    There is a clicking when trying to start my ‘95 Sprint 900 when the clutch is pulled and will not start at all? I was thinking probably starter relay but I don’t have much experience with engines and there many components. The clicking comes from below the seat. Any thoughts?
  10. Classic, Vintage & Veteran
    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...
  11. Sprint Forum
    Tonight I was about to ride my 2008 Sprint ST ABS back from my parent's house. It was a bit cooler, but not cold, and I ran the battery down trying to get it started to the point where it couldn't turn the engine over (lights and gauges still lit up though). I'm not sure on the age of the...
  12. Daytona Deliberations
    I just bough a new clutch kit for my bike and though i knew how to re assemble it until i checked the service manual and noticed this note: NOTE: • The outermost clutch friction plate is fitted such that the outer tags of the plate are engaged with the corresponding individual tags in the...
  13. Club Cafe'
    Hello, I am new to Triumphs and new to fixing my own stuff but I bought a '74 TR5T and needed to replace the kickstarter. The kickstarter was slipping and I was able to buy a new pawl, remove the gear box, replace it and put it back together. The kickstarter works great now. My problem is...
  14. The Welcome Center
    Hi all I am in search of a clutch cover for my Thunderbird 900 Year 1996. Original part number T1260792 The one on my motorcycle now is with Triumph logo, later models where made without logo. Best if I can find one with logo but I can accept without, must be in good condition. I am from Denmark...
  15. The Welcome Center
    It appears my clutch is acting up. The bike stalls as soon as I put it in gear. I have adjusted the clutch and have had no luck. Any ideas?
  16. The Welcome Center
    I have just traded my 2014 Ninja 1000 on a "new" 2016 Explorer Tiger 1200 XRx. After doing an enormous amount of research, aiming at a big naked bike, namely the Speed triple, when my wife and I went to test it, I realized the Triple wouldn't work due to it's poor pillion seat. So, eventually we...
