    15w50 castrol

    A lot of people mistake the number before the W as a winter rate instead of the minimum flow rate when the oil is at 210 degrees. In this case triumph is specifically looking for no less then a minimum 15 weight a 210 degrees not the thinner 10 weight .

    Issues with R3

    I'd say it depends on price that okd shouldn't be but 3500. Stick to 09 and newer as it will have the updates the earlier ones don't or might have had put in. Its actually about mid 08, all R3T touring model with the Harley lookalike front end. And complete hard bags. All 09 and up on...

    New clutch slipping at higher RPMs and hard throttle

    Not to worry my friend there is nothing wrong with the triumph fibers. I'm running a set now. Plan on changing them when the wear out. Not sure how old they are as they came with the bike in 2014 and I've only managed to put 28,000 on them. But I do have Carpenter springs on it which I really...

    New clutch slipping at higher RPMs and hard throttle

    Ok there is two different fibers and all steels are the same. Sounds to me like the large inside diameter one that goes over the anti judder ring and seat. Is probably where your problem might be. Is the clutch freeplay/slop on the cable 2 to 3 mm. If its less you could be taking pressure off...

    New clutch slipping at higher RPMs and hard throttle

    Check the parts list if they changed fibers they would have had to order two different sized fibers the larger inside diameter one fits over the anit judder sprinf and seat. The wrong one will make her slip. What brand clitch bits did they use ?

    Radiator Hoses

    I pulled the radiator. Since I've had them out so many times. I pretty tell the bike to take itself apart :) I need to get some shake down miles on it and it is a holiday weekend. I ride solo so the distancing thing only matters with food service :)

    Radiator Hoses

    I just got mine done. Is it me or is the thermostat to radiator hose a wee bit short? Mine were had I known that I'd would have just put OEM ones on. They lasted 13 years. Live and learn. I also flushed mine 4 times with distilled water then went with engine ice.

    looking into mild upgrades for 2011 R3T "Dacey"

    Ya I think they kept a lot out to sea. Pretty smart if you don't have covid stay out until they get it figured out. The neighbor is on the IKE so he has been gone for quite some time. Anyway you nees to talk suspension to kevin and paul I think both of them added the emulators to their...

    I take it you're still out at sea. Is it the ship or are just held out from the Chinese Cooties? I just got back to Norfolk Wednesday. :) Warmed ediie up since he hasn't run since last year. Flushed her coolant 4 times with distilled water to clean her out. New hoses and engine ice today as...

    Transmission issue

    I wasn't believing the new old stock figured low mileage. In gearing helucal gears are usually sold mas a matched pair. Not that you would have to. I've sent just the one helical in a complete torsional damper assembly to be a parts donor. Anyway sorry to make you hunt down all the info.

    Transmission issue

    I can see the bearings are in correctly. Can't speculat as to why they went thru the hassle of removing it from the cover? Also from what I can see of the helical gear if this is the orignal bearings they were running concentric.

    Final gear fluid

    If the book calls for 75w90 you are in Iowa not the desert :) I'd stick with what the book recommends. Like I said I change mine more then recommended just so I don't have a jug of oil laying around. It doesn't take much. The book doesn't say it except for inital install. But once a year I...

    Final gear fluid

    Lucas is good I use mobile 1 and change it every other oil change. Thats over doing it but it takes a while to go thru a quart. Anyway the most important thing to remember is the drain plug has a hollow bolt with a magnet in it. It does not take much torque at all. So little lots of people mess...
