    Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can help me with this puzzle. 1969 T120 Bonneville, 750 conversion with Mikuni carbs. It previously ran like a champ, and now after sitting for two weeks it sputters and coughs under moderate load, though it kicks over and idles just fine. A quick flick of the...

    Whilst I'm aware that new keys need to be paired with the immobiliser to be used, would I need to pair the keys if I fitted a complete new ignition switch that came complete with keys? I've bought this one, the result if a very long story, I might add, I'll add details of that later, hope...

    I have searched far and wide, even in this forum and not found anything 100% confirming that there is a rear stand, that is compatible with the newer liquid cooled T's. Even those referring to "new" Bonnies were listed as only compatible with '15 or older. (The threads I found were from last...

    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...

    I have a stock 2020 T100 with the Aegean Blue paint job. It has the standard black seat with the white piping. I'm considering an upgrade for the seat - maybe the British Customs slammer, for its extra height - and thinking about going with the brown color. I am also considering some brown...

    Hey there. I searched this topic and the only discussions I found were a few years old. Would love to hear your thoughts on which bike would be better for me. I will likely be buying new and this will be my first Triumph. Been a while since I’ve done any riding (dirt bikes in high school and...

    I got on my bike to go to work and couldn't get it to start in gear. Started right up in neutral but as soon as I dropped into gear it died just like when the kickstand is down, but it was up. Got under the bike and saw the the wires connecting the kickstand switch (Maybe a magnet? Not sure how...

    Ok, i bought shinko 705s and had them installed on my 18 t120 today. Didn't feel like it was handling the best and was a little sluggish. I thought maybe just new tires im not used to it etc. Get home and gf says that textured center on the front tire is weird. I went to look and you guessed...

    Hi, Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have hit a dead end. I am trying to research where and when this bike was built, if it could be the correct engine for the frame. Everything looks original or well restored but would love more information. The number stamped on the engine is TK 547...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the community and haven't found anything on the related topic so please bear with me. I found this gauge (speedo/tacho)+headlight mod the other day and really wanted to fit it on my T120 (Triumph headlight TWINTON® with H4 | wunderkind-custom.com). The problem is, this...

    Hello all, I am a 40-something dude looking for a new ride. This ride will be my daily commuter, once my office reopens. I will ride about 10 miles per day in a mix of Urban and campain with 0 high-way, every working day of the year, in the northern-east part of France. The weather here is...

    Hi forks. I currently have 2006 scrambler, and am thinking about adding the new water cooled T120 in my garage. I think the T120 hasn't had any major update since it was released - but what Im curious about is whether the recent Euro5 compliant made any noticeable difference. Has anyone...
  14. Biker Hang-Out
    New to the bonneville world and found a 1972 t120 that seems to be in great condition. I was wondering about maintenance issues and reliability of one of these before I go and pick it up. Also wondering about speed, handling, highway ability. I basically need someone to explain the ups and downs...

    Hi Rats, I’m the proud (fourth) owner of a 2016 T120. The previous owner wasn’t able to tell me exactly what modifications are present. I’m hoping that someone here can tell me if this is the original catalytic converter or an Xpipe. My hunch is the latter as it has also a booster plug and...
