1. Cleaning carbon buildups

    hello, I am wondering if this carbon cleaning should be done after certain number of miles/km to prolong engine life and keep it at maximum efficiency? Just an idea came up in my mind, I am not an expert about engines or stuff but I am being precautious and trying to do extra preventative...

    My 4 Rockets

    These are all 4 of my Rockets beginning with my 2005 that I ordered in 2004 up to my current 2013 Touring. I loved them all like my children.:cool:

    Is it just me or are the newer Rockets hotter than the first gen Rockets when riding in the summer heat.

    I rode about 120 miles yesterday round trip in heat from 80 up to 96 when I was done. Most of the riding was on the freeway and at speeds I usually don't go up to. I was trying to beat the heat. When I got home the seat was uncomfortably hot as was everything under me. One of the pillion pegs...

    Combine Two Rockets? A classic and touring.

    A few of You may have seen my recent post I have a 2010 touring model with a bad engine. I just picked up a 2008 classic with a salvage title. My plan is to combine these two. I like the tins so much better on the classic, the touring is black while the classic is a lovely two tone. I would...

    Are Triumph Rockets reliable?

    I currently own both a 2019 HD Breakout and a 2019 HD Fatboy. Instead of spending $10k to upgrade to a Stage 4 kit, I put a deposit on a 2022 R3 GT 221 Model. After reading theses R3 forums I’m thinking I made a mistake. I live in a Chicago suburb with two Triumph dealers within 15-miles. Is it...

    Idaho Red Rockets cruise near Moab

    Last September Mr. Bill and I met the Rocket 3 riders in Moab for a group ride. Mr. Bill went out for a ride before sunset. I was knackered and was already working on a video so I passed on this ride. Recently I copied some of his videos while making another video for him and accidentally...

    I have owned 3 Rockets in 3 Days (Quick-shifter Content)

    The first one was the one I wrote about in the post: Rocket 3R, Six weeks in. It was a great bike. It's gone now. My second one was the one that I owned yesterday. It was quite a different bike to the old one. That's because I followed Bloodnut's advice on suspension. Quite the transformation...

    Why are people selling their Rockets?

    Ok, I get it: We buy toys, own them for a while and sell them again. I used to do that with the bikes I owned: Bought a shiny new ride, rode it for a year or two and then sold it again. Because a new, more shiny toy came along. The Rocket, I thought, is a different thing altogether. Certainly...

    New clothing for 2.5 L Rockets

    My friend just bought the first GT Rocket in our area. Neither of us are real big on the clothing looks for looks. That said, I would like to get him a t-shirt or sweatshirt for the new bike. His is a black GT. I bought a good quality T-shirt with a 2.3L engine printed on it from a fellow...

    Rockets aren't for everyone...

    I got a kick out of the comments on this video and who buys a bike without test riding it first. Hopefully there are characters like this in my area so I can cash in on the discount...:D;)
  20. How many Triumphs and Rockets were produced from 2004 through 2019?

    I realize that Triumph is a privately held company and isn't always forthcoming with production year/model unit numbers but I was able to go through what has been published over the years with respect to "the Rocket years" 2004-2019 to create this unofficial draft chart. If anyone has access to...
