  1. Maintenance & Workshop Talk
    Hey Everyone! I picked up my first Triumph, a 2003 Speedmaster the other day, and as I was cruising today my front brakes failed. I was able to baby it home and found out this bracket broke off. I was wondering whether anyone’s seen a similar failure, and if anyone knows about any options to...

    Hello all! I’ve been eyeballing the 2020-2021 Speedmaster. I wonder if any of my fellow Triumph affectionados also have experience with the T-Bird (especially Commander or LT) and the Speedmaster. If so, would you think I might regret “downsizing” from the 1700 Bird to the 1200 Speedmaster...

    Has anybody else had issues with an LED headlight going out? And does anybody have access to a wiring schematic for a 2019 Speedmaster? I was on my way to work and the headlight started flickering, and then cutting off completely. It was intermittent for the whole 20+ miles, cutting off for...

    Hi all, I have been obsessively scouring the forums and internet for options on tail light and tail tidy options for a Speedmaster and there's just not much info out there on these for a US sized plate. Silly question but is the Bobber tail wiring and mounting the same as a Speedmaster? Any...

    Hello, I am starting to plan my exhaust upgrade and have 3 questions! Should go as far as trying to cut away the metal surrounding the header pipes to expose the thinner tubing for heat wrap? I notice this extra piece is welded near the headers. Is their an aftermarket thin pipe header exhaust...

    I'm contemplating moving on to another phase of modifications on a stripped down, heavily modified 2005 America, and I have a question about what now seems to be a useless part of the frame. The airbox was removed, battery relocated, side panels removed, so other than providing a place to...

    Hi, folks! A couple of months ago, I came back to motorcycling after a hiatus because a doctor almost killed me. My first bike was a 1966 Honda Scrambler. I got her in 1968. I sold her when I graduated from college. In 1970, I got a 1970 BSA 441. That bike was stolen.... after it landed on me...

    Hello! I currently have a 2003 Speedmaster, and I would very much like to put a "pedestrian slicer" number plate on the front fender. I have searched high & low for a compatible one, but I keep coming up empty as far as finding any that will fit. (I'd also prefer not to drill any holes in the...

    I own a 2012 Speedmaster with British Customs Bomber exhaust installed, AI removed and British Customs Turn Signals and Break light. I recently installed the BC Bomber exhaust and removed the AI, then a couple of rides later the bike's fuel pump, tach and speedometer will not turn on. I have...

    Joys of being new & buying a used bike... I just bought a 2011 Speedmaster today and I'm super excited to get on the road. Naturally, it's a used vehicle so there has to be at least one thing I have to do before it's ready right, haha. The previous owner said it's been sitting in the garage...
