  1. Mirrors move during high speed/Acceleration, T100 Bonneville (2008, EFI)

    Air Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    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...

    Water Cooled Twins Technical Talk

    I’m new to motorcycles, but I’ve always wanted a triumph. Just picked up a non running 2003 bonneville t100for $400 from my neighbor. The guy couldn’t get it to start.
