i am looking at upgrade options for my sprint rs....

i don't want the whole new engine, but i would consider a top end head and cams...

i just don't know if the 02-04 daytona head and cams will work with an early 955 motor...

thanks,
Chris

I think it won't work, but I'm not 100% on that. Check the Sprint forum to be sure; there are some serious experts there.

'97-'98 Sprints have the 885cc engine with carbs; you have a '99-'01 engine.

I do know that the upgrade most people will recommend is a Daytona engine from the same era. ('97-'01 for the Daytona motor.)

Going to any '02-up motor will require lots of electrical changes & assorted extra parts.

It's often cheaper to buy a whole motor than to get parts.

Cheers, HTH,

This engine was heavily updated in 02. The part numbers appear to be different between the 01 and 02. Try the following link. www.triumph-ant.co.uk This fellow knows his stuff when it comes to Hinkley Triumphs. He might be able to provide you with a head if needed.
