Hi all,

I’m new to the T300 world and have been reading about a recommended upgrade to the external oil feed to the head which increases oil pressure by restricting flow through the banjo.

Is this a genuine thing or just a marketing ploy to sell an unnecessary bit to newbies like me?

Ta,

Stu

Anyone know what year Triumph switched to to revised banjo bolt?

Mine uses one of these. The one shown installed is on my Legend. The other one will be installed on my Sprint soon. But they are of the two hole design. ...J.D.

I thought the revised banjo had one hole to reduce flow at the top and direct more oil to the big ends .... might be wrong though. Like the option to add a gauge though. Where did you get it from?

Diftech.com . Email Mark and he'll supply you the correct size. They are in Huntington Beach,Ca. Both my 95' and my 00' had the 2 hole style original equipment and I have never had oiling problems. ...J.D.
