Hello, recently just purchased my first triumph. A 98 triumph tiger. 28k on the clock and in very good shape. It does have some clutch slippage so I'm going to have to replace the friction discs. They seem readily available, but the steel discs dont seem to come in the set? Can I reuse the old ones or should I order them individually from triumph? Or is there a complete kit that I haven't found yet? Thank you in advance. Look forward to learning more about this machine. Cheers!

Looking at Bikebandit.com, it looks like you can only buy individual clutch plates, or the whole clutch assembly. I don't see why you couldn't use the old steel plates as long as they're within spec and not warped

No separate gearbox oil. I don't think any bike has used separate gearbox oil since the 1960's. None I know of anyway
