    Storing my R3 'till spring -- any advice?

    Are there any gas treatments that will work on this? I just went through installing a new fuel pump and having the injector nozzles cleaned, but it took a couple weeks and cost a couple hundred bucks, and I'd rather not do that again. Of course, last time it had been stored fifteen years and...

    Detent spring failure

    I just finished limping home with my shifter popping out of gear. I had a broken detent spring about 40,000 miles ago. Same exact series of events. I just hope for a better solution from the Triumph dealer on the repair. The old dealer quoted $500. Final charge was close to a Grand...

    My People, I will soon be attempting to replace the detent spring in my '08 Touring and have a few questions. I have read through a couple of write ups about it and watched a video, although the video was about replacing the clutch, and did not remove the clutch basket so, no actual...

    Progressive fork spring install general question

    For the fork spring replacement going to progressives, is is necessary to fully remove the forks from yokes or can the spring swap be done with the fork tubes still in the yokes? I know many other bikes can be done with the tubes still in the yokes, but it looks to me like that approach on the...

    Rear Spring length and Weave

    Gents, Hoping to get your opinion on my 2013 Touring's behavior. Last year I had a nasty death wobble, and thanks to good inputs from this site, narrowed it down to steering head bearing adjustment, which cured the problem and confirmed that Touring's are not allergic to white walls. No hands...

    05 Rocket silver detent spring

    I am replacing the clutch. So decided to replace detent spring. How do you replace it. She is very hard to get too. Or do you unscrew the Allen bolt and does the whole unit pull out to get to it? That would be easier, If I don't.

    Clutch: spring or washer?

    Looking forward to refitting a new set of friction and pressure plates into the outer basket. Just noticed that the parts catalogue and manual both show opposite sequences for installing the 'anti-judder spring' and 'anti judder washer'! The manual shows 'washer' then 'spring' then plates . ...

    Valve spring compressor mod

    I noticed that I had a valve stem seal leaking a bit so thought that it was a good idea to replace them all while I have the cylinder head off. I'm sure that someone makes a valve spring compressor for motorcycle engines but all I have is an old school automotive one that wasn't able to reach...

    Touring progressive fork spring upgrade

    Decided as I can't ride for a month or so while I recover from surgery, might as well do some upgrades. Got out the manual and read through it and went what the heck??? Looked at the bike and lo and behold, no drain plugs on the lower sliders. Could understand that in a Roadster or such with...

    Rocket laid up until spring

    Today was my last ride on the Rocket until spring and it was a nice one. The weather was perfect and the ride along the water couldn't have been better. I brought the Rocket and my sidecar rig into the garage from the shop afterward where they will stay until spring when I'm all healed and...
