    For Sale Corbin Dual Tour Saddle - 2004-2019 Rocket Standard/Classic/Roadster

    My trusty old Rocket has gone to a new home so I have a few bits to offer up to the site. First is my Corbin Dual Tour saddle. Not pristine but still looks good. Someone who knows how could recondition the surface. Riding surface is Black Leather. Sides and Welts are Black Vinyl. Comes with...

    Hermy's

    I've had good results from Hermys. Usually it is not the local dealer that is the problem if the parts take time. Most often it is Triumph North America or even Triumph corporate. Hermys are good people. If you call, ask if it is Triumph NA that are not stocking the parts.

    Fork Mounted LEDs - Cool or Not-Cool?

    A set of Clearwater Darla's down on the forks is a good idea, particularly down in Florida. Having the lights low creates a "conspicuity triangle" that helps cagers acknowledge your presence. The Clearwater lights are uber expensive but they are also uber quality. Less expensive options are...

    Sta in tune exhaust on the classic

    I have the Staintune pipes on my '06. Love them.

    This is just so sad and wrong, if accurate.

    My wife's best friend's husband is a retired police officer. He went through police academy and served for 20 years with the murdered rider in northern Virginia. The article incorrectly lists Fairfax, Washington when it should be Fairfax, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, DC.

    Got everything back together (amazing for a mechanical numpty like me) and went for a test ride. The Barnett definitely has stronger springs as felt at the clutch lever. Different engagement feel as well. Very smooth. I should have done this a long time ago.

    PAIR VALVE BLANK OFF PLATES

    Run regular gas to help reduce the popping (higher octane burns slower so more unburnt fuel out the exhaust port) and embrace the remaining popping as a sign of total immense power!

    Saw my first Wood Booger today

    I see Woodboogers all the time. Available 2 miles from the house at Strangeways Brewing Company.

    Oh - just some more helmet controversy.

    I'd like to see the best of all the technologies: Fiberglass or similar delaminating shell (hit and slide vs one hit polycarb), torsional features (MiPS or Koroyd) and good ventilation (Koroyd would seem to have the advantage). I'm just not a fan of polycarb helmets even thought they are far...

    Oh - just some more helmet controversy.

    On a similar note, what are the thoughts regarding the Koroyd liner now offered in a few of the Klim helmets. It seems like it will vent well while also allowing for some torsional deflection which is the big selling point of MIPS.

    2020 Indian Roadmaster Darkhorse.

    I'm curious as to why you consider the Challenger only for newcomers? It's faster than the Chieftain and has more ground clearance. Also doesn't cook your right leg on the rear cylinder. As soon as they put a tourpack on it, I'm gonna get real serious about it. I'm genuinely interested in...

    It looks good. Only minor defects at the very edge.

    Silly question but in addition to a new clutch cover gasket, what type of gasket sealant is appropriate to use? The high temp red stuff or the black oil resistant stuff or something else?

    Let's see if this will continue to work. Steels and fibers looked good. I suspect that the springs had weakened. I hope this lifter will deal with the strong Barnett pieces.

    I don’t have calipers so I can’t really tell. Already have the Barnett kit so fibers, steels and springs will be new anyway.

    Got the clutch open and confirmed the old needle bearing type lifter. Everything looks good. Is it a really bad idea to go back in with the original lifter? The updated style is another $300+ investment in a bike that may be sold soon.

    87 vs 91 octane fuel

    I like to make gas references in terms of Regular, Mid-Grade and Premium (some call it Super). That is generally understood internationally. In the USA, Regular is typically 87 octane (slightly lower in high altitude western states) as measured using the (R+M)/2 method. Internationally...

    87 vs 91 octane fuel

    You experienced just the reverse of most of us. Since Triumph is a "foreign" maker, most of the units are in European standard including the fuel rating in RON instead of the USA standard of (R+M)/2 (also known as AKI or PON). Since your Indian is a USA manufacturer, the units are expressed in...

    Thank you for the detailed response and the pictures. If I may ask a further question or two: My engine number indicates that it is an early 2006 (black engine), 246512, which would indicate the needle bearing style lifter. I understand replacing the lifter piece, lifter shaft, the pressure...
