    Triumph do some things that seem really strange... for example, they print stickers to put on the bikes, but instead of having information (eg tyre pressure and chain tension) it's just a little picture that basically says "Go read the F'n manual"

    Lucky there's a triumph dealer in Tamworth... I'd be dropping off the forks there and letting them fix them :D

    Just be prepared to take out a 2nd mortgage if you take anything to a 'dealer'.

    @Linkin do u know where the paint code is ... under the tank?

    Funny how they (dealer) didnt suggest to do the fork seals .... seller did mention the oil is due for a change and on the service check sheet its crossed , but "Front and rear suspension - check for damage/leaks/smooth operation' is ticked.
    It also came with a Queensland safety certificate as the PO lived on the border

    Yea I think the parts desk will be the only section of the dealership Ill be visiting ... and even then I think Ill need a full bank account


    Like this ... I thought it was a stone 'chip' but its actually like a 'burn' ... the plastic looks melted ... weird and of course the headlights are just one big unit that u would need a weeks wage to replace it

    And what else do u do with a new bike ... pull it to bits of course! :D

    :lolsign:

    It needs a clean in the 'unseen' areas ... and Im pedantic with that ..... Ive also found a few things a little loose as well already
    Im away from home for another week with little to do (apart from looking after my mother) and I only have very limited tools , so I cant do much anyway , it also has to remain strapped onto the trailer so I cant ride it ..... and it has to be running for a rego inspection when I return

    A collection of gravel ...

    I remember reading on a facebook page how the older Truimph light lenses did that, and a few people said Triumph replaced their headlight's under warranty on their older bike's, might be worth looking into ?

    Otherwise there's a few on ebay under $200 with post

    The main problem in Italy with Triumph is few dealers, and the very long times to get the parts. I needed several interventions under warranty, and the bike remained on the dealer workshop 6 months during 2 years. Then, at the end of warranty, i sold the bike.
    Fortunately, there's a big community of Triumph riders, and it's the only forum i follow since 2008:
    http://www.forumtriumphchepassione.com/forum/
    Maybe You can find some tricks

    I've fitted a fair few of those covers in my time working on bikes, they do the job indeed and they are cheaper than engine covers.

    Looks like Michelin Road 5 tyres? They're pretty good I hear.

    Have you find any of the PO's dirty secrets hiding in the bike yet? :lolsign:

    heres the original ad ... I paid less of course :)

    Do those protective covers use the same factory bolts or do they come with longer ones?

    Nothing bad found yet .... I have to wait till I get it home and off the trailer before I can take off the main fairings and take a decent look under the covers

    Yep Road 5s .... great thing is they are less than a year old and thats handy to know they should be half decent :thumb_ups:

    Nice price and it's not a fixerupperer so I suppose that will leave you with more time to say 'Go Riding' - now there's a change
