Triumph did this so you wouldn't have to wear out the stock brake pads so quickly. Same reason they installed a 17 tooth counter sprocket the first few years. Saves the brake pads for the twisties where the wear and tear is worth it--or so I hear. Kinda hard to find very good twisties out here in the flat lands. :-D 17900 miles and I still have 75% of the original pads left--now tires are another matter...time for the third set.

Pete...it shouldn't be doing that. I suspect the pilot circuitry in the carbs are at fault. I would start by cleaning the carbs......also, before you get into the carbs, you might want to check and make sure the throttle cables are adjusted correctly.

What you are describing happens a lot on EFI bikes, but the carb bikes are S M O O T H.
