Stunning Bike... I had a couple of Street Triples, the 675 engine packs a punch and very torquey
Pulled the stock shock out, stripped it and fitted the stock spring to a nice minty eBay ZX-6R shock, then did some mild surgery to the undertray to fit it. Then washed it (at last)!
I’ve been lucky enough to have a Street Triple for my first bike and now a Daytona for my second. The noise and handling are so much fun.
Here’s my current steed:
Does anyone on here actually bother changing their fork oil?
Triumph recommend to do it every 24k but after watching some Dave Moss videos i thought id change mine since its never been done.
After 12k it looks quite bad.
Don't assume that darkened oil is ineffective. The only real way to tell is to test its viscosity. That said it's never a bad idea to change it, especially since fork oil is often overlooked, but if the oil is still doing its job, just changing it because its no longer clear is often a false economy.
17 year old SV650 never been done.
Although the forks 'feel' ok.
New seat on the way at last, will stick up some pics when installed.
Very nice @khemist
Did you have your current one redone or is this a new seat completely
I sent rider and pillion seat off to be done and bought another oem rider seat so I could still use the bike along with a cheap seat cowl until it was done.
Where/who did the seat @khemist ?
Looks like a great job they've done there.
Bought another one after six weeks of cold turkey. Im a bit old and past it for the chest down a$$ up riding so a more sedate passion is required
Not too bad looking for nearly 18 years old
Looks very clean and tidy for it's age. What's the mileage like? Looks really comfy
Just 27000 on her. More comfy than the armchair in our living room
I imagine one day i'll have to get something comfy too, but for now i can manage slightly tougher seats
Enjoy while you can bud
Welcome to the RT club. I have a ‘09 R1200RTP. They get a lot of stick but I’m of the opinion there is no finer all rounder for people who ride a lot of miles in all weathers. Proper riders
Least I don't get off it after 200 miles walking like John Wayne lol. Just hope i never drop it
