That doesn't help me. You jet based on flow, so if thats the way they ran the bikes, they were so adjusted. These bikes don't seem to run rich stock, so allowing more intake can't be good. It may not be bad, but someone with experience should say.On 2007-01-10 10:44, Normandy wrote:

That really isn't all that reassuring. I had one of those old bikes with an open velocity stack. I ran it around the roads here in NE Ohio for about 6000 miles and, when I pulled the heads, there were deep grooves in the cylinder walls. After that, the velocity stack didn't seem so cool and I became a believer in air filters.On 2007-01-10 10:44, Normandy wrote:

can't say i'm surprised... i love my bike but from the factory it was a mess. had to take it back to the dealer the day after getting home. i had oil coming out of the transmission at the spot where the clutch cable goes into the casing. the mechanic got it apart and couldn't belive that the seal had been installed upside down. i've had my speedometer, speedo cable, gas tank and oil switch replaced under warranty. but the big warranty job was having triumph replace the head. turns out the when my bike was put together the was put on crooked. it caused an oil leak in the head.
Was that a Thailand or British assembled bike (tongue in cheek)

Saw a part of the tour of the factory on OCC. Those bikes come down the assembly line all mixed up. I figured all triples in one line, all twins another. Pretty good those guys can do assembly with every part coming at them being different.On 2007-01-15 16:07, stu wrote:
