TT600 R/R.. getting ahead of the curve

Hello All. I said as a new TT600 owner I'll be asking a many questions and here is the first. I note from scanning the forum that the R/R and stator are a tad fragile, also I note from the excellent information from Andrewed1 and DEcosse that the SH847AA SERIES R/R is the gun option and that the 675 oem retrofit kit cable works for the TT600. My question is is it a good idea to buy and install the SH847AA before I have any problems? For reference my TT600 has 9900 miles on the clock... oh and a supplementary question, is there a source for the SH847AA in the UK with a good rep like the Roadstercycle.com link from the USA?

I don't know about the source, but I probably wouldn't mess with things that are working. If your R/R takes a dump, the stator isn't far behind, in my experience. If you are planning to go on a long trip and want to make sure there's no chance of an issue, then replacing both early makes sense. If not, then there's always the potential that they will be fine and you can roll the dice a bit.

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Thanks Will, I spoke to an ex-triumph dealership workshop manager and now indepentent workshop owner here who had the same message as you. If its working then leave well alone. He had a few other interesting things to say as well (once I got my head around his accent!) including that the TT600/Speed Four didn't have anywhere the same number of R/R failures as the first generation of 675 triples because those bikes has R/R's from a different - read cheaper - supplier and the later post recall 675's went back to the same OEM supplier as TT600/S4. Another interesting tidbit was regarding valve clearances. Originally they were due every 6000miles, then extended to 8000miles, then again to 12000miles. My new to me Y2K TT600 has 10000miles on the clock and being unsure if it had valve checks at 6K or 8K and I asked if I should book it in. In his experience a TT600 engine rarely if ever needed shim changes when checked at 12k so talked me out of booking it in for a check. What a nice chap.
